The Black Diamond Telekneesis Kneepad lets you move objects with the power of your knees. Unlike the cheesy skateboarding kneepads many telemarkers use, the Telekneesis only covers what it has to, so it doesn't mess up the breathability of those expensive ski pants. Three plastic shells with closed cell foam backing are articulated to be minimalist when you're standing up straight, but come together for full protection of the patella, as well as giving your upper shin and lower thigh a little coverage. The Telekneesis's smooth beveled edges won't catch on ski pants and are low profile so they won't scoop snow or look doofy.
These armadillo-inspired telemark knee pads provide protection from rocks, edges, and buried hazards in a design so comfortable you'll forget you're wearing them.
