Gel Protection Kneepads are the best protection available. They are made from the same materials as our other knee pads, but are protected with an additional gel insert. Gel is a soft and pliable material that is excellent for absorbing shock. It is used in many medical applications to help relieve pain and is also used in products to protect delicate equipment. This material is also effective in reducing friction, so it will not wear out as quickly as other materials. The gel insert is also removable, so you can wash the knee pads as needed.
