Shin Guards

13 posts in this topic

Any recommendation on some shin guards please. I was recommended the SixSixOne shin guards but after reading some reviews I have been put off.

Something nice and slim would be nice and true to size.

Not sure what the reviews say but I'd go with sixsixone

The reviews said they're very tight fitting, the padding on the front sticks out far too much and they're very hot.

I generally use Sixsixone armour for DH and Enduro but want a slim fitting shin protector for trials.

Saw them, look really good but a bit put off how 2 sizes can cover from Small to XL. Without trying them first in a shop it's a bit of a gamble buying online only to find out they don't fit very well.

They are very stretchy and the sizing chart we produced is accurate. I have a set myself in the larger size, 38cm calf. Would probably buy Hebo next time as I prefer the styling.

I thought it was a bit of a gamble myself when I bought the jitsie shin guards but I'm very happy with them. After a while you don't even notice that you have them on. Very stretchy, light and comfortable with enough protection from a shindig! Definitely recommend.

The Hebo Size Chart is terrible to be honest, why don't they do a circumference measurement? Can I ask which part of your calf you measured to get the 38cm as the Jutsie size chart measures below the knee and above the ankle.

I dunno. Many manufacturers do weird things like that.

Largest part. We figure that's the pertinent bit, so based the sizing info on that (should all be in the product description).

For balance, I've never tried the Shadow Conspiracy ones, they look good though.
