Strengths:    Excellent fit. Comfy and work well.

Weaknesses:    Not the most robust materials.

Bottom Line:   
I tried on several pairs of shin guards and most felt bulky and uncomfortable. These pads fit like a glove and are pretty low profile. They are hot but all pads are going to make you sweat. The only downside is the materials are not that durable. No Cordura to be found, just stretchy type material. If they get too beat up, I will just sew some Cordura over top. I would definitely buy them again.

Strengths:    These things don't slide down your leg as you are riding. They are much more breathable than pads with the plastic plate on the outside. Major pimp factor with Fox.

Weaknesses:    neoprene covering can get torn up.

Bottom Line:   
These pads are by far some of the best I have used. Your legs still get sweaty but not nearly as bad as with other pads. They have got four velcro strips in the back so they don't go any where. My only complaint is that they arent the most durable pads, but they also aren't as expensive. I would highly recommend these pads to any freerider but if you are doing serios downhill go with the expensive ones.

Shin gaurds with flats?

Ok so I've ridden clipless for the last 7 years or so and decided to try the Canfield crampon pedals with my new Nimble 9. I ride some pretty technical downs sometimes and like to hit some small jumps of 3-4 feet in height, nothing big. I like the grip of the long spikes and they go well w ... Read More »
