Knee Pads for Pole

 
StrangeFox Paid Member
Anyone got any suggestions for a good pair of knee pads that can be used on and off the pole?

I was thinking Poledancerka, but I've heard they don't stay in place all that well. I did try Mighty Grip a while back and they worked great moving from the floor to the pole, but I found they slid around way too much. Volleyball knee pads seem to stay in place the best, but they're super bulky and they cannot be used on the pole. Anyone try Bees Knees kneepads? Any other brands to recommend?

I have both bees knees and the old version of mighty grip knee pads. I like them both.

I have Queen for Dance knee pads and really like them, not too bulky and they have a choice of smooth of grippy, I would say pick a size smaller than they suggest as they come up a little big. 💜

I love Queen, they are my favorites. I think they are true to size per their size chart though, at least for me. It’s true they stretch but they stay in place and will recover the original size when you wash them.
I have Bees Knees and don’t like the at all, they are bulky and stiff, and ugly! The nude color looks like a bandage. On the bright side, the Velcro is very convenient for training.

Thanks so much Silver Sylph and LatinPoler! I took a look at the Queen knee pads and I think I might give them a shot. I did like that the Bees Knees kneepads have velcro but I need something I can use both on and off the pole, and they do look a bit bulky. The Queen knee pads are a bit pricey but so are all specialty pole items!

Hi, I'm Sara Bee, owner of Bee's Knees Knee Pads, the pole dance knee pad that straps on and strips off! I just wanted to thank you guys for being so candid about what you need in a knee pad. This is the kind of feedback that I need to constantly improve my product! @LatinPoler, let me know if you want me to send you a different pad insert. BKKPs come standard with the firmest offering, which is definitely stiff. Some people love the Firm, while others (like me) prefer Medium or to double stack the Light (also me!). @StrangeFox, a lot of people love Queen because they are low profile and they have removable inserts; others love Creatures of XIX because of the Velcro straps. BKKPs have Velcro straps, removable pad inserts in three levels of firmness, four sizes, strap extenders, inclusive skin tones, and more colors coming out every few months! Check them out at www.beeskneeskneepads.com or follow me on IG @beesknees_kneepads to see them in action! And DEFINITELY let me know what you think so I can make your experience better! I believe in my product, but even more, I believe in the people who use them!

I’m not even to the level of using knee pads yet, but I like how you replied about your product, offering suggestions to fit the posters needs. I will definitely check your brand out for that alone, great customer service.

Thanks @jaques! Everyone's needs (and kneeds, haha) are different, so constructive feedback always helps. Thanks for taking the time to reply! :) If I can help you at all when you're ready for knee pads, don't hesitate to reach out!

I see Bee's Knees on IG and I LOVE the way Sara Bee interacts with the community. Sadly, due to the pandemic I don't have much spare cash to spend on fun things like knee pads. I was already a bit strapped before due to some other personal circumstances, so it's looking like I'll have to stick with my beat up volleyball knee pads for the foreseeable future... :( Once things pick up I'm going to look into Bees Knees and Queen. Thanks everyone!
