One of our saddles came with a pair, and they do help with knee pain, but..... I find that if you drop a stirrup, its harder to pick it back up as the stirrup just swivels back to the flat position, where with a properly turned fender, the stirrup stays pretty much where you want it to slide your foot back in....
I never have this trouble with my english saddles though, so maybe its just me, because they lay flat when you drop them too., but they bounce around a bit more, so maybe that's the difference...
