Pole Dancing Knee Pads FAQs
Why do pole dancers wear knee pads?
Wearing pole knee pads provides protection for your knees and helps prevent injuries that might keep you off the pole long term.
The best knee pads are designed to be sleek, tight & breathable, with enough stretch to allow you to bend into any shape.
They should also allow you to slide your body along the floor without hindering you. They have padding in the front for protection of the front of your knees in case of falls, and a hole in the back for breathability and to allow you to grip the pole with your skin.

What knee pads do dancers use?
Pole dancers use a specifically designed style of pole knee pads like the ones we sell at Lunalae.
The reason they wear specially designed pole dance knee pads is that they provide thick padding to the front of the knee while still allowing the dancer to grip the pole adequately.
The ability to grip the pole comes from a hole in the back of the knee pad and sticky silicone on the material of the knee pad.
The neoprene material provides breathability and moisture-wicking without being too bulky that it inhibits movement for the dancer.

Is pole dancing good for the knees?
Pole dancers rely heavily on their knees and other joints while performing movements. Because there is pressure placed on the knees, it is important to protect them as much as possible.
You can protect your knees while pole dancing by wearing specifically-designed pole knee pads, and also by building and maintaining your supporting muscles to ensure they are available to help support the knee.
A pole knee pad is a great innovation that provides a thick, soft pad that protects your knees in case of a fall, and a hole in the back to give you enough grip so you don’t slip off the pole.

Do knee pads prevent knee pain?
It is highly important to protect your knee joints while pole dancing. You will be using your knees to support all your movements during your training and you want to minimise the stress put on them.
This is why it is important to wear pole dance knee pads that provide grip to allow sliding down, and you to pull yourself up, the pole.
Shield your knees while you practice the same move over and over until you’re acing it every time. Shop the range at Lunalae today.
