ION K-Pact Select Knee/Skin MTB Pads my take!

Straight out of the bag these pads were comfortable i wore them in the house for about 3 hours before i even rode and they were comfy!
1st ride at my local was great they were great on the climb top the top and i felt super protected when descending,

The sizing is pretty spot on for me i am a large guy and the sizing chart was correct to my size.

The only cons for and these are both no really a problem
1. They get warm but not outrageously so
2. They are expensive , but sometimes you get what you pay for and so far these are the best Knee pad i have worn

I will buy these again and also would buy from Drift Bikes too! they were easy to deal with and were very prompt with my order!

SANTA CRUZ 2020 TALLBOY 4.0 C 29 S GX EAGLE FOX 34 130 PERF

$8,700.00 AUD

If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it.

The new 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre bending folk hero.

Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step—but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design this is one giant leap for the Tallboy.  

It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up. 

And the geometry, that's a big part of what's going on...

Established theory suggests shorter travel bikes get ridden slower, therefore require steeper and more conservative geometries. In reality though, when was the last time you ever throttled back on a fun trail because you weren’t on a bigger bike?  Caution to the wind and all that. So we’ve done the same here and mimicked our longer travel geometry to create a bike with a 65.5-degree head-angle, generous front center, and short offset fork. Something rarely seen on a bike of this ilk.

And the radical thinking doesn’t stop there.  The Tallboy’s short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally at home. Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop) and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side.

This product is available in-store only. As per our dealer agreements, we are not permitted by our brands to ship new bikes.
