Leg section

The leg section is the main section of the pad, located between the boot and the knee rolls.

Knee rolls

The knee rolls are located towards the top of the pad, they give flexibility to allow the pad to bend at the knee. In some newer pad models, the knee rolls have been removed to allow for better redirection of rebounds.
