Strengths:    decent looking, appears to be well-constructed, nice stitching, reinforced stitching on closures, ballistic nylon shin area.

Weaknesses:    the shin guard plate is ***FLAT****. who has flat shins?! and the plastic is so rigid and resilient that after applying a LOT of force and bending the sucker in half, it mostly springs back. personally i'd huck these right in the trash, but my girlfriend wanted these, so i'll form the shin plates with a blow torch.

also... unvented neoprene is the best material they could come up with for the body of the shin pad? the same characteristics that make neoprene great for wet suits make it bad for shin guards.

i don't like these, either, when compared to my knucklebones. the knucklebones are longer, made entirely of ballistic nylon, and knucklebones have three flexible pieces at bottom of the guard so you get some additional protection at your foot crease and tops of ankles.


Bottom Line:   
Poor imitation of Knucklebones.

Troy Lee Designs KG 5450 Knee/Shin Guard

I'm looking into buying knee-shin guards and the Troy Lee seem to be the best fit so far. The only downside that I find is that you have to take off your shoes to wear them on and off and I fear that they might get hot in warm conditions. I live in Colombia so wintery spring and humid summer are sep ... Read More »

Looking for shin guard to pair with POC vpd 2.0 long knee

These pads extend about halfway down the shin and exposes the sweet spot that pedals love to bash into. Was looking for a low rise shin guard that might be able to protect that area. I would even go for soccer shin guards if theyre low enough, then I could cover em up with a sleeve or something. ... Read More »
