Built For All-Day Riding And Comfort

Conforming To Your Knee Throughout The Day
One of the best features of the Thor Force XP is that it's built to conform to your knee at several different positions. Whether you're standing, leaning forward or sitting down with your knees bent, the XP will follow the action of your knee.
It's impact-resistant polyethylene kneecaps increase the amount of protection the equipment provides. The newest version also covers riders' thighs much higher than previous models. Additionally, the hook-and-loop closure straps will help the knee guard conform more comfortably to your knee and shin without feeling overly restricted.

The XP's asymmetrical design also helps the piece of motorcycle equipment fit snug upon the rider's knee. The XP comes three sizes: small to medium, which fits riders up to 5 foot 7 inches, large to extra-large, which fits the majority of riders over 5 foot 7 inches, and double extra large to triple extra large, which fits riders with larger than average legs and those over 5 foot 7 inches.
