Answers to most common questions about products, orders, shipments, and payments.
Can I wash my Cumulus knee pads?
Absolutely! One of the improvements that we made with our newest design is that knee pads can be machine washed and dried. Leading competitors pads tend to fall apart in the washing machine, but our high quality SBR foam pad and surge stitching can easily handle washing and drying cycles. We know that a hard working athlete equals sweaty, stinky equipment that needs to be washed frequently. So whether you are playing basketball, football, lacrosse, wrestling, etc. Wash away! No need to fear damaging your athletic knee pad.
What size should I purchase?
Buying online can be stressful when you don’t know what size will fit. We have helped ease that worry by creating a detailed size chart (click here to view). Our size chart is broken down by measurements and weight. Our pads almost always fit athletes who fit inside the weight range guide, very tall or very short athletes are the rare exceptions. Take your measurements, check the weight guide, and you are almost guaranteed to get a pad that will fit well and be comfortable. We do recommend sizing up if you are on the upper level of the weight range.
Will my knee pad stay in place during activity?
This topic goes right along with picking the correct size. If your sleeve is too tight or too small the specialized rubber strips at the top of the leg band are not able to properly grip your skin and stay in place. This causes the sleeve to slip down during athletic activities. If you are on the top end of a specific size on our chart we recommend sizing up so make sure the pad will fit your thigh well. If you have any additional questions regarding size or fit don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer service team.
What sports are these pads made for?
We have athletes from many different sports purchase our products. Basketball, wrestling, football, lacrosse, volleyball, and baseball are frequent Cumulus shoppers. Just to name a few. Our products are great for any activities that require extra protection and improved performance.
What are Cumulus products made of?
As many of our customers know, hex knee pads fall apart. That is why we developed our one-piece knee pad made of high quality SBR foam. SBR foam is synthetically created to mimic natural rubber. It provides enhanced elasticity and durability. SBR foam is extremely resilient, flexible, abrasion resistant, and shock absorbent.
Will my custom image fade over time?
No. We use high quality ink sublimation to heat transfer your custom design into our Cumulus knee pads. Because of the specialized fabric blend that we use for our sleeves your image will stay bright and crisp even through extended use and wash.
