TSM knee pads

While the joint protectors were white cotton protectors with only minimal damping and sliding properties in the 1970s, real high-tech protectors have developed in this area. Cotton has long been a thing of the past; highly elastic nylon fabrics combined with (Teflon) sliding layers or material combinations with warming neoprene dominate. Modern bandages

  • not only protect the knee from hard contact with the ground
  • stabilize the entire knee joint all around
  • protect the inner and outer menisci
  • keep the knee permanently warm
  • bleed through it
  • thus offer additional injury prophylaxis.

This is additionally supported by the anatomically correct fit. In addition, the models are getting lighter and lighter, with the latest models weighing under 120g. Thanks to their good sliding properties, today's generation of protectors also last significantly longer; the surface is almost indestructible with normal maintenance. Practical: the protectors retain their functional properties even after frequent washing with the machine.

Recommended volleyball knee pads

As an example, I present two popular knee protector models: the classic from "TR2" and the official knee protector from the equipment supplier for the German national volleyball team "TSM".

TR2 - the all-round knee protector

"TR2" knee pads In the monochrome (black, white, red, royal, navy) design every volleyball player should have seen it before, as it is the best-selling knee protector. The protectors “Made in Canada”, from the developers of the “Trace” knee protectors, are popular in both volleyball and handball because of their usual high quality. The bandages are made of 91% nylon and 9% spandex, which makes them very elastic and has a Teflon coating on the front for easy gliding on hall floors. Additional effect: the service life increases significantly. The upholstery consists of a proprietary further development of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), which offers a significantly higher shock-absorbing effect than other EVA upholstery materials.

The keyhole at the back ensures a comfortable fit, even with a large range of motion, so nothing pinches the hollow of the knee. The protector does not need Velcro straps, so there is no wear and tear. Size measured above the extended knee:

  • S (30.5-35.5cm)
  • M (35.5-40.5cm)
  • L (40.5-45.5cm)
  • XL (45.5-50.5cm)
TR 2 knee pads (in pairs) MODEL 2042 XL *
  • TR2 knee pads with Teflon coating
  • Rubatex closed cell foam provides all-round protection
  • Unhindered flexion of the knee joint thanks to the keyhole design
  • Optimal freedom of movement thanks to the open back
  • Made of highly resilient and dimensionally stable elastic fabric

TSM - knee pads for the German national team

The TSM knee pads / bandages are known from the appearances of the German national volleyball teams for women and men at the World Cup, European Championship and Olympics in a striking black, red and gold design.

This protector, developed in cooperation with the German national team and various Bundesliga teams, leaves nothing to be desired: The knee pad bandage made of 14mm thick neoprene has excellent cushioning properties, promotes blood circulation and reliably dissipates sweat and heat.

At 118 grams and only 25cm in length (size M), they are the most compact protectors on the market and can hardly be felt on the knee.
Due to the pronounced anatomical shape and two Velcro fasteners, these protectors offer the optimal fit, adapt perfectly to the knee and are guaranteed not to slip. This is how the next pike excavator can come ... Size measured with the leg extended above the center of the kneecap:

  • XS (25-29cm)
  • S (29-33cm)
  • M (33-38cm)
  • L (38-42cm)
  • XL (42-48cm)

What can you do about smelly knee pads?

Smelly knee pads are not uncommon in volleyball, but they don't have to be. But before the solution is revealed, the cause should be clarified. During exercise, it is quite normal to sweat. This sweat also collects in the knee pads and leads to the formation of bacteria, which in turn cause the stench. Because of this, the easy solution to smelly knee pads is regular washing in the washing machine. Many also use this here softenerso that the knee pads smell even better afterwards. In addition, knee pads should be well ventilated after each workout, as this also inhibits the formation of bacteria. That is why it is fatal to leave the schooner in the gym bag.

VolleyballFREAK tip: If you train several times a week, I recommend that you buy a second pair of knee pads. Since washed or damp knee pads usually don't dry quickly (unless you put them in the sun or on the heater - not recommended). Damp protectors quickly lead to unsightly skin irritations.
