Default Distance skating and Knee Pads?

Ok guys and gals, I'd like some feedback here.
I'm a pretty seasoned skater. almost 30 years on skates.
I did aggressive for most of that and I'm getting out of it, mostly into distance skating these days.

I do anywhere from 10-30 miles a week and I've had the pleasure of taking some high speed spills due to the fact I skate on goofy trails and roads...

So, after my last digger I'm thinking about investing in some knee pads.
What do you guys do? It seems most speed guys don't wear them? It is just because there aren't any good ones out there?

But man... it sure sucks to skate 15 miles home when you just jacked up your knee and are dripping blood everywhere. haha.

any feedback would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
