I don't ride the bike or sled without them. Very comfortable, you don't know they're there. It's nice to ride with your knees directly on the console moving around bashing away and feel nothing. Those stick on pads can't come close to same protection and with knee guards you can ride any sled and have same protection.

I would not ride without knee/shin pads and tec vest, have seen first hand a wipe out where guy bashed his shin on running board and had to be air lifted out. Also seen another crash where guy broke his knee cap. Each to your own but the way I look at it is wearing gear is the difference between getting back on and riding or being hauled out on a stretcher or worse yet in a bouncy bouncy tabogan ride with a broken bone lol
