Climbing with Kneepad by Red Chili

Kneepads have not been a niche market for a long time. While kneepads were initially difficult to obtain, there is now a model from the German climbing outfitter Red Chili. The Kneerock is a high-performance kneepad that protects the knee from abrasion and injuries in overhanging areas.

The padding is U-shaped for maximum performance. On the inside, a neoprene layer offers high wearing comfort and ensures that the pad does not slip. Thanks to the symmetrical closure system, the knee skirt can be placed optimally.
