Ross Posted September 19, 2020 Share Posted September 19, 2020 Can anyone explain to me why Warrior designs the calf wrap so it has to rest on top of the knee stack when the pad is flexed at the break below the knee? Below are pictures of my G5 pros and you can see in the first picture how the calf wrap rests on top of the knee stack. I’ve stored the pads upside down so that they have a nice curve thanks to the break below the knee. The issue I have with this is that sometimes while I’m playing the pads will straighten up and then they won’t return to the nice curve as the calf wrap hits the knee stack rather than riding back over it. See the second picture. I strap the sling wrap and webbing around my knee instead of down to the calf wrap. No other pads I’ve seen do this. They all have the calf wrap shaped so that when the pad is flexed at the break below the knee, the top edge of the calf wrap just touches the bottom edge of the knee stack, they do not have it so that the calf wrap sits on top of the knee stack. On my G3 pads I cut off the section of calf wrap that rests on the knee stack when the pad is flexed and noticed no negatives. So before I cut this area off on my G5’s can anyone explain the virtue of this design? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
