G-Form Shin Pads, utilizing RPT – Reactive Protection Technology, a composite blend of PORON XRD material and proprietary G-Form materials and technology, offers consistent, repeated impact absorption for dependable performance throughout the life of the product. They are the first flexible, molded, exoskeleton rate-dependent impact pad worn on the outside of the garment. The ridges and hinges of the pad are specifically designed to fit with the contour of your leg to ensure complete protection. The G-Form pad will protect you from repeated impacts – unlike a bicycle helmet, it does not need to be replaced after impact, and does not lose any of it’s protective qualities after repeated use. The unique way the pad is shaped and molded, plus it’s attachment to the compression fabric, keeps the pad close to the surface of the body, and this enhances the protection, especially compared to hard shell pads that can move out of place
The G-Form exoskeleton armor comes in three different versions currently, the Knee Pad, the Shin Pad and the Elbow Pad, with each retailing for $49.95. The slip-on armor utilizes an elastic fabric tube, made from a nylon and spandex blend, in which the molded RPT padding is flat stitched onto the material. The design mimics a set of arm or knee warmers, and the fabric fits snugly to assist in keeping things in place, and also provides compressive qualities. Continue reading →

I tried going to bike shops but they don't really carry guards, so I don't have the slightest clue how wel ... Read More »
I am wondering if there is such a thing as slip-proof Knee/Shin pads?
I have owned a few pairs of Knee/shin pads. The latest pair which are
Fox Launch (I belive that is the correct model) do slip and have to adjust
them whenever I go downhill.
I would appreciate your inpu ... Read More »
