    If you are talking about bionic ones then they are awesome. I am using them. They are damn good. Padding is amazing. And most importantly, unlike all other knee guards, these don't even move an inch from its place.

    KNOX stuffs are good indeed they are one of the reputed armor manufacturers.

    But trust me I'd definitely recommend you for the Knox even though priced at a premium. But trust me those budget brands do the job just five t when it comes to knee guards.

    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    The HELIOS jacket comes with a rain liner and is available with KNOX armour in elbows and shoulders for Rs.6250/- inclusive tax. To upgrade and replace the supplied dual density back armour with KNOX advance back armour is Rs.1800 extra. An extra 3M Thinsulate thermal liner is Rs.700/- extra. Alternatively, you can ask for a thermal liner INSTEAD of a rain liner, in which case, there is no extra cost. (This option is available for online purchase only).

    The website mentions that you can upgrade to Level 2 armour - which means that you can buy one if you want and insert it, since the jacket is designed to accept even the thickness of a level 2. I have a LEVEL 2 Sas-Tec in my Helios.

    I do not recommend the HELIOS or any product over any thing or any other product. I do however recommend and strongly urge that you read, research, study and educate yourself with the ample material, knowledge shared by other friends and members of this forum and elsewhere and form an opinion for yourself. It is after all your skin.
    Rs1800, is the price of upgrade to level 2 back protector or level 1?

    That's nonsense. Your fake and low end knee guards are better than nothing, thats all. But if you value your skin ( and knees ) more than Rs.500 or Rs.1000/- or whatever the low end fakes cost, invest in proper knee guards. The KNOX aren't cheap, but the money you spend on them is not wasted. You will appreciate this in a crash. The KNOX guards come with impact absorbent padding designed to take a blow, while the low end stuff comes with sheet foam to prevent you from cutting yourself while putting it on. THINK!

    I totally understand why it was deleted..

    They could have easily defended by saying it was original fox armor imported or something

    But a question does arise that how come a member of GODS wear such a protective gear...i believe they are sensible and a mature group of people and wear the right kind of protective gear

    does it have so much of protection..it costs almost 1/4th of normal mesh jackets..

    I understand it. I mean come on being ATATT advocate myself I definitely wouldn't recommend cheap stuffs. See I've personally seen my friend wearing a locally reputed brand (I won't name the brand, you know what it is) being thrown off the slammed into divider leg first and wearing a same brand leather jacket.

    Upon inspection if he wouldn't have worn it, his knee caps and bone would have been abode heaven. The pad didn't have a single crack, crazy abrasions all over ripped Velcro but it lasted till the whole trip in one piece. We were all doing 75+

    I always advice under ones discretion. Even when I took a downhill fall my old knee guards did just fine and lasted for 1+ years before throwing it away.

    90% people use AXO FOX CRAMSTER but they are way better than wearing nothing at all and I can definitely say people who've had a slide or crash with knee pads on would vouch for it

    Affordability plus practicality is key here. I fir one personally would like to see every single motorcyclist to have Arai Helmet with A* leather jacket boot and gloves, but you're wise and you know what I'm trying to say.

    Cheers!

    little help required here @B7ACKTHORN
    my search for riding cum casual shoes has brought me to these final choices according to preferences.
    1) alpinestars fastlane shoes (107$) - (Amazon.com: NEW ALPINESTARS FASTLANE ROAD RIDING SHOES, BLACK/WHITE/YELLOW FLUO, US-9.5: Automotive)

    2) tcx x-square boots ( 99.9$)-(TCX X-Square Boots - RevZilla)

    3)teknik striker boots (84$)-(Amazon.com: Teknic Striker Boots (44) (BLACK): Automotive)

    4)speed and strength run with bulls shoes (81$) - (Speed and Strength Run with the Bulls Shoes - RevZilla) - major cons were the sole wearing out pretty soon.

    5) vega merge boots (70$) -(Vega Merge Boots : Amazon.com : Automotive) - have the least info about these.


    Since im looking for using these shoes daily and through the college comfort while walking also matters. Also these shoes are costly ,so I'm looking for the one which last a while.

    What exactly would be the best way to wash and dry a mesh jacket which had been caught unawares in a freak sand/rain storm for a time period not exceeding 3 minutes?

    Handwash, mild detergent, dry hang. Don't wring. For stubborn stains, use little brushing.
