The Fortis is a non-slip on design that features a injection molded protective shell for abrasion resistance and Level 1 CE impact protection. It is attached with a hook and loop thigh and calf closure along with a security cinch. These pads are billed as, “light enough for cross country, protective enough for gravity rides and breathable enough for everything in between.” Knee pads and elbow pads in the Fortis line are $79 and $69.

The heaviest duty pads, the Surpass line, are Level 2 CE certified. They feature a rubberized ventilated outer skin.
