Need help deciding which customisation to select?

Our kneepads are available with either a gel or foam lined pad. These pads are 1/2 inch thick and made from a non-absorbent EVA foam. We offer either our standard foam pad, or an upgraded foam with gel lining pad. 

Why choose Foam?
  • Foam is our standard cushion option
  • This has no gel lining and...well pretty much does as it says on the tin! It's the standard foam liner to cushion the knee!
    Why choose Gel?
    • Our upgraded Gel is good for those with sensitive knees who need that extra bit of comfort and cushioning. This would be the best option for anyone who's knees are already feeling the years of use. 

    With the straps we offer two options. Our standard velcro elasticated straps, or standard straps with an additional thigh strap. 

    Why choose Standard Straps?

    • Our standard two strap design. These straps are made from a soft elastic with velcro fastening to reduce the risk of chaffing and digging into the legs. These are similar to the standard straps you would find on most other kneepads on the market.
    • These straps are good for those who have a light to moderate need for kneepads and who would normally work in a stationary kneeling position. If you move around a lot in your job or knee for prolonged lengths of time, then we would suggest upgrading to our thigh straps.

    Why choose our Upgraded Thigh Strap?

    • Our thigh strap upgrade option is for those that use kneepads for jobs that involve a lot of fast paced movement. Our kneepads will raise you slightly higher off the ground than what you may be used to with other kneepads on the market; so in jobs where you need to be moving quickly, we have developed this additional strap to help keep your knees more secure within your kneepads.
    • The thigh strap also reduces the risk of straps becoming bunched behind the back of the knee. So for those who wear kneepads all day, this is the option we would recommend for you.
    • The thigh strap has also been designed so that they can be added to or removed from any existing set of Recoil Kneepads! So these can be added or removed to suit the job you are working on.
    • Please note, our thigh straps are in addition to the standard straps, so if you select this option you will also receive our standard thigh strap in the box that can be added on if you choose to remove your thigh strap. So make sure you keep this safe and don't throw it out!

      Your Recoil Kneepads have 2 elastic straps that wrap around your leg. The bottom one will sit at the top of your calf, and the top one will rest around the top of the thigh. If you haven't worn kneepads like ours before, they will take a bit of getting used to - although once you understand how they work, you should have no problems.

      That's a good question. We completed a study with The University of Strathclyde's Biomedical Engineering department which revealed that not only did our kneepads rank number 1 for reducing pressure on your knee joints (compared with competitors kneepads at that time), but they were able to spread the pressure evenly across the knee which helps further protect your knees against pressure induced injuries such as osteoarthritis, bursitis and meniscal wear and tear.
      Any job that requires prolonged kneeling - that's what these kneepads were made for. Whether you are in the construction industry, do personal DIY jobs or spend a lot of time on your knees in the garden - if you are kneeling, then you can wear our kneepads. Our customers so far have been using them for: Tiling Gardening Floorlaying (Wood/Safety/Screed/Concrete) Decking Flat Roofing Painting and Decorating Driveways and Paving Plumbing and Gas Engineering Carpentry/Woodwork Welding ...and many more.
      We use our unique patent-pending Recoil™Technology that utilises a 6 spring suspension system. How does that help make kneeling safer? It reduces peak pressure on your knee joints and the circular arrangement allows you to pivot in any direction without losing your stability on the ground. This is the fundamental feature that separates Recoil Kneepads from our competitors - and is the reason why you'll feel more protected wearing our kneepads.
      Yes, we ship to anywhere in the world. Because we are based in the UK, we offer free delivery in the UK. However, for international orders, we offer a highly discounted shipping rate to try and make sure that anyone can purchase a set of kneepads without paying too much for shipping. Standard International shipping will usually take between 5-7 days.
      Yes, our kneepads are a universal size. These kneepads were built with the construction industry in mind, which means they were built to withstand constant use on the toughest terrains. Our adjustable velcro straps allow you to fit them to your leg size. It is a difficult challenge to try and make a one size fits all kneepads, but with our future customisations - that shouldn't be too far away.
      If you have a problem, either buying directly from Recoil or any third parties, email us at and we will happily sort out your issue as quickly as possible.
      Yes you can actually. If you want to clean out any dirt, adhesives or sticky stuff from the front pad, we suggest getting as much of it off as possible and then you can use a heavy duty cleaning wipe to take away some of the leftovers. If that fails, a hot and soapy sponge should get some of it off. As for the foam pads, we recommend hand washing them in the sink and allow them to hang dry. Do not tumble dry or machine wash the foam pads and straps.
      Yes they are. The foam pads and straps are replaceable. We sell replacement sets on our website if you ever need a new set. If you think anything else needs replaced on your set, just get in touch with us at and we will resolve your issue as quickly as possible.
      The foam pads are made of a High Density EVA. You get 1/2 inch of foam plus a comfort layer of neoprene over the top. The kneepads chassis is made from a near bulletproof polymer and the springs a stainless steel. When it comes to the assembly of the kneepads, we take care of that i house to ensure quality is preserved so that you get the best set of kneepads we can give you.
      Many kneepads on the market will sacrifice comfort for protection or vice versa. Recoil Kneepads were made to ensure you get the best possible protection from our suspension technology and that you are still comfortable when you kneel - making for far superior kneeling experience. Some of our customers have been using their kneepads for 2 years straight, 6 days a week, and their sets are still protecting them as well as they did on day one.
      Your Recoil Kneepads will come in a cardboard box if ordered from ourselves or on Amazon. As well as your kneepads, you also get a Recoil bag that you can carry your set around in so that they are easy to store away and easy to spot in your van/shed/loft.
      Ofcourse. We operate a 60 day money back guarantee on our products, no questions asked (although we'd love to chat to you and find out if we could help). In the unlikely event that you find your Recoil Kneepads aren't for you, if you return them to us within 60 days of the initial payment, we'll offer you a full refund.

      I’ve only wore them for a few hours so far. Is summer time here and I set tile in shorts. The straps are very rough on the back of my knees. The back of my knees were sore tonthe touch in about an hours time. Everyone I think is great.

      Hi Greg, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you haven't been having a good experience with your straps. We have recently come out with a thigh strap attachment which may be of use to you. If this is something you'd be interested in, please contact me at Kind regards, Lauren
      Bought these after seeing the slot on the TV show

      As the title says, saw the show and agreed that knee pads are usually dreadful. I'm currently using the Recoil pads and they are great for the springiness and have made the tiling a lot easier. However I can only wear them for short periods as the straps cut into the back of my knees. The kneecap are much better and the spring action makes me much more maneouvreable but the cutting is really sore. I've tried crossing the straps and wrapping a cloth around my leg to no avail, maybe it's my shape but they are a good product but can be uncomfortable.

      Hi Ian, Thank you for your review, we are happy to hear your kneepads have made tiling easier for you! This means a lot to us. We are sorry to hear you aren't having a good experience with the straps. We are keen to solve this issue for you. We have recently come out with a thigh strap attachment which can be fitted onto the kneepads. If this is something you are interested in, please contact me on Kindest regards, Lauren
      Good with a slight draw back

      These knee pads are great. They do provide great protection for your knees and you can actually land on your knees from a stand up position without hurting your knees. In fact, you hardly feel anything - they that good!
      However, my only criticism is that when wearing shorts, say on a hot day working in the garden, the Velcro straps at the back of your legs are most uncomfortable whereby the edges feel like they are cutting into your skin. Additionally, the upper and lower straps keep bunching up together directly behind your knee joints - again making it uncomfortable if wearing shorts. So, all in all I do recommend them but make sure you wear trousers when using them.

      Thanks for reading,


      Hi Miles! Thanks for the great review. We are pleased to see you have been watching our videos! Your review is helpful to us, as we are a start up we are always looking for ways to improve our product. At the moment, we are currently selling a thigh strap attachment for the kneepads (the attachment is £10 for the set). There is a photo of the thigh straps on the product page. If this is something you are interested in, drop me an email at Kind regards, Lauren
      Great knee pad!

      Saw customers reviews about them sliding down your knees but thought I’d give them a go anyways and I’m so glad I did! All you need to do to prevent this is to cross over the straps rather than have them linear. Very comfortable just hoping they last! 10/10 so far

      Hi Owen, thanks for the great review. Its good to hear you're to getting on well with the kneepads, we have had a couple of customers use this method and we're happy to hear that it benefits you too! Kindest regards, Lauren
      Not as good as I thought they’d be

      The pad is good and does protect the knee, when it’s in place that is as the straps are rubbish and allow them to move too much and straps are really uncomfortable when wearing shorts

      Hi Chris, thanks for the review. Sorry to hear you haven't had a good experience with the straps We have been working on some new designs for the straps and now have a thigh strap attachment available. Is this something you'd be interested in? we are keen to resolve this issue for you so please get in touch at and i will do my best to help. Kindest regards, Lauren
