well after really taking a nice hit to my shins riding some dj's. it got me wondering. i wear shin-guards for downihilling and freeriding. and occasionally dirtjumping. i really dont liek to wear them for djing becuase i have the roach dh pads and there pretty bulky.

so my question is how many people use shin-guards while djing, and if u do which shin-guards do u use? or recomend?

Get low profile Adidas style soccer shinguards, they work the best as far as cooling go and the protection is more than enough, you won't even know they are there, I use them for both biking and soccer and they are awesome for either.

Try seperates like the shadow conspiracy knee pads and lizard skins shin guards..

good advice. Lee's no genius but he's all about protection so I think you can trust him on this one. I often don't wear any knee pads at all and just go with shin guards. Its not as hot and easier to fit into girl pants that way too. :D
