Strapless kneepads

Knee pads are great at protecting the front of knees, but their straps can cause some uncomfortable chafing and burning on the area behind your knees. Magnee’s knee pads eliminate any of the potential problems caused by straps by getting rid of the straps themselves. Instead of using straps, Magnee knee pads are held in place through magnets — two on the outside cup of the kneepad and two on the inner pad that goes inside of your pant leg.
