Slim-Fit Knee Protection

187 Fly Knee Pads feature a low-profile design with a superior foam pad, for a streamlined fit with excellent impact resistance. The contoured shape and slide-on style allows them to fit snug and cradle your knee, giving you close protection without restricting movement. And the caps are all size-specific, so they fit close to the pad without added bulk.

187 Fly Knee Pads are made with the same high-quality craftsmanship as the 187 Pro Knee and Pro Derby Knee Pads, but in a streamlined design for a slimmer, smaller fit. The outer lining features industrial-stitched ballistic nylon for extreme durability, while the inner liner is seamless and soft for comfort against the knee. The most versatile knee pad for roller derby, skateboarding, and has great crossover for any number of action sports.

187 Fly pads are excellent for outdoor street skating! Great for all roller sports, or anytime you don't want extra bulk!

Square Cat 101 - Pro Sizing Tips
All knee pads will stretch out as you use them, so always shop small! Use the size chart below, and err on the small side. General use combined with the salt and sweat from skating and repeated falls will stretch the elastic quite a bit within the first few weeks or month, depending on use. Don't waste your money by having your pads stretch out too soon. Buy the smallest knee pads you can squeeze into, that properly cup your knee, and they will break in nicely and get more comfortable.

How do you tell if they fit? The foam knee cup area should hug your knee, without gaps or movement. But the stretchy sleeve should be tight, and hard to pull on at first! You might even feel a little panicky trying to pull them off and on the first few times, but don't worry about a little initial discomfort, you want them to still fit after they break in. Fly knee pads that pull on easily and feel "just right" when they are brand new will stretch out and quickly become too big and start sliding around. Don't be afraid to fight with them the first couple weeks to stretch them on. You'll appreciate it when they're not sliding off to the side after a couple months.

187 Fly Series good for Roller Derby?
187 Fly knee pads are not built up the same way as the 187 Pro or Pro Derby knee pads. For some skaters, this means less protection from the heaviest falls, and if you want the most protection, the Pro Knee or Pro Derby Knee is the way to go. No knee pad will protect against every possible injury, but the 187 Pro pads will provide that extra measure against some of the most gnarly, hard crashes.

But 187 Fly pads are still designed to handle the high impacts that come with roller derby and skating, and will still give you superior protection. Skaters who want good knee protection, but are looking more for smaller fit and flexibility, or just want good protection at a cheaper price, will prefer the Fly Series over the added protection of the Pro Series.

Still Can't Decide?
A lot of newer skaters have a hard time wondering why they should spend a grip on the Pro Knee or Pro Derby pads. Simply put, when you're a new skater, you tend to fall harder and with less control. The added protection of the Pro Knee or Pro Derby Knee pads will help you prevent injuries early on. But not just for beginners! Any derby skater knows that falls can occur in the most crazy of ways - and sitting on the bench sucks. Anyone who has had past or recurring knee injuries, or is skating ramps, will appreciate any extra protection.

But if you know what your needs are, and don't fall hard on your knees a lot, or prefer reduced coverage for the sake of extra maneuverability, the Fly Knees are the way to go.
