Which knee protectors for my Rukka pants?
 
I own Rukka pants that came with knee protectors in the waffle form. Point is, they are too hard on the knees especially when the knees are touching the bikes panels in front. So I am looking for knee protectors that fit in the rukka pants, have good protection but are also very soft to the knees.

Any ideas ?

Thanks for any advice you can come up with.

I also found the original waffle style knee pads (Rukka Armas) to be very uncomfortable. I ordered the upgrade/replacement Rukka D30 Air Knee Pads. D30 worked specifically with Rukka when they developed the armor. Besides it being more comfortable than the standard armor, it provides greater levels of protection. It blows away the D30 armor in my Klim Badlands Pro pants. I picked mine up for $45 and I have been very pleased.

I use the Forcefield, strap-on knee protectors (not strapped on) in my Rukka Allroad.

Have you tried them in the cold yet?

The Forcefield stuff did the best in that published test that is floating around here somewhere.. I keep meaning to order it to replace my D3O stuff in my KLIM gear.

Living in San Francisco, the coldest I have ridden in them was around 40F. The D30 was still malleable and comfortable. However, I can't give you any information regarding their performance <32F. All I can tell you is that they are much softer and thicker than the original armor.
