"Did the job!"
My knees were always sore and in pain after riding, so much so that I could hardly walk after a few hours ride. I bought the E-Z knees and did an 8 hour long ride my first day with them. They helped immensely!!! I was able to get off and walk no problem after, not even sore. I wear cowboy boots so I don't get the rubbing previous reviews complained about, also I used these on a barrel saddle. My only with is that they were the type that swivels instead.
"Saved my knees"
The saddle really put stress on my knees and these really saved me. When we 1 st put them on the metal was hitting my shins and we discovered we had them on wrong. Once fixed, i love them and now hubby wants some. 😀
I love these. They have made a big difference in knee pain. I don't have any problems with them hitting my shins because I wear boots when I ride. I won't ride without them anymore.
I have used these for years and absolutely love them. I have not had any issues with rubbing. I use them with trail stirrups.
"I like them"
I like the Cashel EZ Knees, have had mine 5 years, they really relief torque on knees. I wouldn't ride without them. Regarding the metal hitting your shins, I have no problem with it...I wear roper style thick leather boots that protect my shins.
Like the other reviews say, these are very uncomfortable. The metal part hits you sharply right in the shin, and there is no way to correct it. Also, it appears that you need the fender to keep your leg in the right position, and this makes the position of your leg on the curve of the fender wrong making riding with these even more uncomfortable. Total waste of money.
These were a big waste of money. The concept is really great, I needed help with the torque the saddle was putting on my knees. Unfortunately, the metal part rubs against the lower shin and hurts. No way to avoid it. It does make the stirrups longer, which isn?ÇÖt a problem for me, but shorter people may have issues.
There were two problems with this product the first is that the metal part interfered with my lower leg when I was riding. Within a short time riding was very uncomfortable. The other problem is that it extends the length of the stirrup making it at least an inch or two longer.
