I'm a cheap ass, and lets face it, knee pucks are bloody expensive. I want the hardest longest wearing puck out there. I don't have a habit of grinding my knee onto the track surface, but I'll admit there are times when I am so tired that I have to put some pressure on the knee because my calves can't hang me off the bike anymore. Any suggestions? (yes I have been working out more)

+1 to these guys.
ive tried a few different knee pucks and those are by far the longest lasting (i actually gave my old set away with about 3/4 the life on them and they had been through a season and a half of racing)
i need to pick up another pair for the new leathers that i got. the pucks they showed in the pictures looked so much larger...

Kluky puck on my suit, love em. The only other pucks I have used are some Joe Rocket that were on the pants I borrowed for my NESBA intro day. The kluckys give much better feedback, and that my friend is better than long lasting to me.

I'm sure Klucky pucks are good, but if you want to really be cheap you can find pucks on ebay for less than $10.00. I'm sure they come from China and they probably contain some toxic lead compound, but I'm not planning on eating them so I think I'll be ok ;)

I'm actually been working on a design of my own out of a fairly hard urethane compound. They will be different than the usual knee pucks mainly in the way they conform to your knee. It should be interesting to see if they work well.

the problem with cheap pucks are that they are usually made of swiss cheese. 1 trackday and they're gone. so you end up going thru 10 cheap pairs a season instead of 1 set of klucky pucks...

If you're looking for cheap, these also worked well for me:

I don't like the feel as much as the Kluckies, but they're cheap and have lasted a decent amount of time. I ordered 2 sets of black for $50, and he threw in a set a of green for free. What I don't like is they are formed for right and left so they're a little wonky to switch knees, which doesn't work too well here at PIR where you burn through the right puck 5x faster than the left.

Klucky Pucks

:) Klucky Pucks have great feel, and don't peel off on the curbs, as well as great wear,

I have racers ordering them in advance of race and track days just to make sure that I have them handy for them.

Definite + on the check list for quality replacement products,

Enjoy the ride, and best regards,
Blair

They're not that bad. I can get a cheap set to last most of the year endurance racing.

I have a buddy who makes all my sliders. They are killer hard and slide like butta. Great prices too. Nothing against the Kluckies, but I have not used them and have heard them to have a little grip now and then.

If youwant info, PM or email me and I will get you in touch with him. I don't think he wants his personal info out on the web.

Klucky's are awesome and were my favorite, until......Chicken Hawk dropped their pucks for $10 less. They seem to last a little longer as hard as that is to believe. They are cheaper and have the same industrial strength velcro that requires gorilla strength fingers to remove.

STG has them for $29.95. You can't go wrong with either, but the Chicken Hawks are my new track favorite.
