JT¹s e-motion knee/shin guards are the most advanced protection available. The sliding rail sytem (patent pending) is the key to holding you in place. When you move, they move, keeping your knee and shin securely covered while your running, jumping or sliding. Constructed of our compression formed puncture-resistant Rhino-Hyde, coupled with non-slip inner pads to keep you secure, finish it off with elastic hook & loop closures and what you¹ve got is the only floating-knee protection of it¹s kind.
The JT e-Motion Knee/Shin Guards are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.
I borrowed a friend's pair of pads one time. Can't remember if they were Ronin, Redz, or Renegade though.
Sturdy Pad. Not flimsy like some of the others I have used and seen. The Rail system works pretty well.
The worst thing is the velcro straps. They fill up with dirt and don't stay closed. I spent an extra twenty bucks buying new materials and having heavy duty stitching done to totally redo the fastening system.
They are big. Only the top two straps fit me. The bottom one is way to big for my lower leg. I'm 5' 10", 170 pounds, so I'm not really big, but not that small either.
Too expensive for what you get. Especially since I put more money into them.
After a year of use, I finally got around to writing this review. It might be a good one to read, since I didn't write it immediately after the purchase when everyone is too excited about their new product to give it a poor rating.
I'm giving them a 6, because they are way too expensive, too large for most players, and the fastening system is just aweful. However, the pad itself and the rail system are nice.
does it really matter!?!?!....oh fine...

dance u DANCE!!!!! hahaha!!!
The sliding rail system is good and keeps the pads in one place when you are running rather than on a kneel....
good comfortable pads that seem to be made tough
they dont grip when you slide (thats good) and they grip when you are on a kneel (which is good) i think it is because the surface is slick for sliding and then it has "treads" on the shin to grip when on them
cheaper than the redz pads
look pretty sweet
im a bit worried about the plastic rail system...how it works is that one plate is attached to the other plate of padding by a plastic rail....if this rail were to break then the pad would split in 2...thats bad
cant wash them in the washer since the rails are plastic....my mom told me that plastic gets messed up in the washer...but the plastic is very thick and seems to be very resilient
feels a bit clumsy off the field, but when you get in a game you cant tell they r there.
the velcro is a bit less than i would expect, while it did pretty well i would have preferred if the velcro when into a loop like the redz padz
pretty good pads and they do their job well
if you want to wear knee/shin pads outside your pants you have pretty much three good choices (believe me i do a lot of research on items and their competitors b4 i buy)
1. JT pads
2. Raven pads
3. Redz pads
i found the ravens were below par so pretty much pick between choices 1 and 3

they are cumfy wumfy
they fit me well, slide with me, i keep em pretty tight
i got hot win em the other day, didn't relize
the slide well cause of low friction
they move with me
admitadly not for the very tall, or the very short
the velcro is hard to clean--like that matters alot
after like half the day they get hot on my legs, but that's half the day with ouyt taking them off
after like 3 games they move a lil, easy to fix just re velcro the straps
they are good, if u feel a need for pads get em, these and the redz pads are the best, the redz don't shift with u

Very comfortable for sliding. I've seen some knee/shin pads that shred to pieces after sliding a lot. These have yet to even come open for me. I really like how they adjust to my legs when I crouch. Also, they're nice to stick a straight-squeegee in if you have nowhere else to. Also for sliding, they basically glide. On grass I can start my slide from about 10 feet away and make it in safely.
The only bad thing I can see is if you don't have the top tightened a lot, they tend to work their way down your legs. About a week ago this cost me a great gash on my knee. Don't wear them under pants! They are hot. Over pants is no problem though.
Excellent knee/shin pads for the front players who are serious about sliding. If you need to get low but keep moving fast, these are the way to go.
Ever been shot right on the shin-bone? (Or the whatever the heck that's called) Yeah, it's a bit painfull. None of that with these suckers! Ever kneeled right on a sharp rock? Hurts. None of that either with these two-in-one combo!

It's better then nothing by far. the sliding rail system is a good idea, and it works well within a restricted range of motion. i only got to use mine in sand but i was still able to slide relitively well with them. they do help to protect from impact with the ground
as a tall man with long legs they don't work for me. The range on the slide rails wasn't long enough, so they would have to slide the whole pad inorder for me to stand and kneel. they also had a habbit of working their way down my leg and getting the shin pad stuck in the top of my boot, and the strap would start to dig into the back of my knee
all in all if you have short enough legs to not use the full range of the slide rails then they make a good pad, if you are like me then you may be better off with somthing else.
Simple, soft soccer-style shin guards and basket ball knee pads, together under pants, for many years.

They stay pretty much in place when running or sliding. They give excellent protection. They give good support when you have all your weight on your knees when hiding behind low cover. They do not slow your running ability down as they bend with you.
The price is too high. They do not come apart for cleaning. Small bits of grass stick to inside material and are hard to get off. They do not stay on my knee where I think they should, however they always seem to be in the right place, maybe they know better than I do? Uncomfortable to wear under pants. Too hot. Any shot that hits them will break.
Good product, they work as they should, but I used my cheap shin guards and knee pads for years and they worked good too for a lot less $ and paint bounces off them much more often.
In woods or Speedball these things held tight and stayed with me with every slide.
I does keep you warmer in the winter games.
No more cuts and bruises!
Slide in woods...dirt and leaves can get stuck in between the moving pads.
Had to take them off after each game to give it a good whack to shake it loose.
Havn't tried the summer plays with these yet, hope it doesn't get to warm
But i think it's better ventalated than the slipe on Shin gaurds.
Good investment for protection and hard players who runs for bunker cover all the time.
These things rock! I slide on cinder all day and by the end of the day there's hardly a scratch.....its very tough. It's comfortable too, and the sliding guards are good because they slide down to protect your whole leg.
sometimes its slides down past your knees...no big deal. Kinda bulky and fat, kinda hard to run with.
I think this is a very good product. I can finally get down and slide instead of being careful when i reach the bunker. BUY IT, it's worth it
