Firstly, measure 6cm above your knee cap and then wrap the tape measurement around your lower thigh to work out your 'upper knee circumference'.
Match with our size chart to find your perfect size
If you are on the edge of the size chart or in between sizes, you have 2 options: choose the smaller size if you prefer snug fits and choose the larger size if you prefer a relaxed fit. Overall, we recommend the 'snug fit' to avoid the knee pad from slipping down as you dance.
LOWER THIGH CIRCUMFERENCE
31 - 39 CM
40 - 48 CM
49 - 57 CM
58 - 66 CM
We have used D3O® material for the padding which is like a foam but tougher and longer lasting. Upon impact, the foam hardens to protect you from the point of impact by distributing the force throughout the rest of the material and quickly softens up again.
The knee pad cover is made from SuperFabric®, an abrasion and cut resistant technical fabric. SuperFabric® is created with a base fabric overlaid with tiny hard guard plates organised in a specific and intentional pattern. Due to the spacing, the pattern allows a degree of flexibility and breathability, however, is small enough to keep most sharp objects from penetrating.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE: REMOVE PADDING BEFORE WASHING TO PRESERVE PROTECTION CAPABILITIES.

We are truly so proud to have spent over 2.5 years researching and developing the perfect knee pad for pole dancers, hip hop dancers, contemporary dancers and any dancer that requires knee protection. We believe that existing science and technology should be the back bone of creating this knee pad.
Put simply, we’ve put in all the effort to bring you a knee pad that will last longer and actually protect your knees with science backed technology.
We’re not taking shortcuts by using fabric that tears easily, padding that deflates over time or padding that is just ‘gel’ or ‘foam’.
We genuinely care about the longevity of your knee caps and our environmental impact.
– Patented D3O® padding that is soft in is natural state and hardens upon impact to protect your knees
– Patented SuperFabric® outer fabric covering the padding for durability and abrasion resistance against tough floorboards
– The surface area of the padding is carefully calculated for each side to provide coverage for both the knee cap and the top of your shin
– Extended shin bone coverage
– The width of the padding is wider than your standard** knee pad to cater to floorwork that requires twerking with the inside of your knees
– The top inner circumference of the knee pad contains a silicone strip to minimise slipping and movement during training
– Firm 2cm wide elastic placed on the top inside circumference to also minimise slipping (please note we cannot 100% guarantee non slip but these features certainly help)
– Large cut out placed at the back to aid pole tricks that require skin contact
– Sleeve is made with a thick nylon elastane fabric for breathability and the ability to dry quickly
– Sleek, minimal and low profile design
– The padding is split into three sections to better contour to the shape of your knee
– Available in size XS, S, M and L
– The length of the knee pad ranges from 20.5cm to 23.5cm. It increases by 1cm for each size
– We strongly recommend purchasing our Boost+ Protection Additional Padding if you have sensitive knees, are prone to bruising or wish to repetitively train high impact tricks. Click the link learn more about Boost+ Protection.
**We based this on existing dance and pole dance knee pads currently on the market.

How to choose your size?
Everyone is generally able to fit into two sizes due to the fabric we have chosen.
Firstly, measure 6cm above your knee cap and then wrap the tape measurement around your lower thigh to work out your ‘upper knee circumference’.
Match with our size chart to find your perfect size
If you are on the edge of the size chart or in between sizes, you have 2 options: choose the smaller size if you prefer snug fits and choose the larger size if you prefer a relaxed fit. Overall, we recommend the ‘snug fit’ to avoid the knee pad from slipping down as you dance.
How should they fit?
The knee pad should feel firm and secure when sliding along the floor
They may feel very ‘tight’ at first however, you will need to ‘break’ into them as they will mould to the shape of your knee with at least 10-15 wears
However, if the knee pad is constantly rolling down when you are just standing, size up
Please refer to our size chart below:
IMPORTANT: Remove the orange pieces of padding before washing
Avoid contact with any liquids with padding to preserve the impact absorbing technology
The sleeve must be washed on a COLD cycle in a wash bag. This prevents the silicone strip from breaking down and will minimise contact with other abrasive items in the wash such as zips.
Line dry in shade
Do not place the padding or knee pad sleeve in the dryer
Place your D3O® padding in direct sunlight to kill bacteria
Sprinkle baking soda onto the padding and leave for a few minutes to remove odours
So ecstatic with my knee pads purchase! Wore them for a floor work routine and was able to move and glide around on the floor with no pain. I feel confident when wearing them that I am fully protected. Thanks so much team, they have changed my life!
Best knee pads!
Best knee pads I’ve tried yet! Such a game changer and worth the money! They are so soft and reduce so much impact. They glide so smoothly on the floor for floorwork. I can’t wait for the nude colour!
Thank you so much Aimee! We are so happy saving one pair of me is at a time super excited for the future colours to come!
GAME CHANGER !!!
My knee pads arrived today after purchasing them on Thursday so I went straight to the studio to test them out and the results were as expected, AMAZING ! They really are everything they say they are. The fabric feels soo nice on your skin and you could literally wear them for hours with no itchiness or irritation. The quality of these knee pads are incredible. The grip around the top makes them stay in place and the coverage is right where you want it. It covers the shins perfectly and the hole at the back is nice and big. I also love that the hole goes up the side of the knee aswell so you have good side/rear knee grip. They have like a rough texture on the front of the knee pad but they slide soo easily in floorwork ! They are lightweight, comfortable and your knees feel soo well protected for those dynamic moves ! You feel no pain on impact ! I would highly recommended these knee pads 1000%. I’ll never buy another brand again. (Note: I paid full price for these knee pads, this is an honest review with no incentives)
It would be amazing to have these come out in a nude shade and possibly even a grippy back side but you don’t even really need it with the size of the hole.
Thank you SO so much Rhianne - you were our very first customer to leave such a kind review and we appreciate it so much! Your review of all the features is everything we wanted it to be for you and I hope that we can continue finding innovative ways to make this kneepad even better. Super excited for the upcoming colours to be released and we will explore the various grippy technology to heighten the functionality of these knee pads!
With lots of love and wishes for extraordinary training sessions,
Best knee pads I’ve ever used
These are THE ultimate knee pads that everyone has been needing in their lives.
I’ve trained in these knee pads for 2 months so far on concrete floor - trying floor tricks such as knee kips and knee spins on floor & aerial tricks such as leg hangs and these knee pads just addresses all the knee pad issues I’ve had in the past. Doesn’t hurt my bursitis-burdening knees doing any floor kips (even on concrete), knee pads don’t move around my knees at all, knee pads are super slidy so it feels great doing any knee spinny tricks, the surface does not wear out whatsoever and can do any aerial tricks. I went back to my old knee pads I’ve been using for years and didn’t realise how painful they were :’) I guess you only know what you know best, and I didn’t know I needed these so much in my life!
Thank you for saving my knees and also my love for dynamic tricks that involve my knees - I can comfortably & safely do all of my tricks again without any pain in my knees! This is life changing!!
(Full disclaimer: I’m a Tatiana Active ambassador, and I’ve been gifted the knee pads in exchange for an honest review)
I am someone who are always on the hunt for the best kneepads and these are fabulous! Doesn’t hurt my knee, doesn’t move, and most of all absolutely slippery!
