|Once while knee sliding in Scabs, a screw caught the cap and pulled it off my knee, resulting in bad burn. Since then, I always wear the gaskets underneath. My next knee pad will be Paincheater, worth the investment. I'll probably retire from skating before these wear out.

: : Scabs are great over your gaskets, get recaps and put them on right away before the orig caps get ripped off the rivets. $60/pr
: I use the Scabs for a long time now without knee gaskets and they always stayed where they should be. I do not bail very often, however. But I had the problem of knee pads not staying on my knee with inferior knee pads.
