Surprisingly Good

I picked these up after loosing my Hayabusa Shins. These are surprisingly good. Good impact protection and fit for me personally. I am coming off a foot injury and the matching foot protection fits my foot perfectly and covers the toe knuckles. I actually prefer these to my twins SGL10

Chrániče holení

Dobře sedí, pásky drží, chrániče poskytují super ochranu holení při kopech. Díky velmi dobré ergonomii umožňují bezproblémový pohyb během tréninku. Jen pozor na velikost, lépe zkusit, měřím 184cm a zvolil jsem M, protože L byly příliš dlouhé.

Die Größe ist ganz gut, aber der Klettverschluss ist nichts für sehr kräftige Waden.

Excelente protección.

Yo las uso para Taekwondo, son muy gordas, me cuesta cubrirlas con el pantalón, protegen bastante de los golpes. El sistema de sujección es muy bueno y rápido, solo espero que los materiales aguanten bien el paso del tiempo. Creo que es buena compra.

No me quedaron

No elegí bien la talla y me quedaron grandes, estuve tratando de contactarlos para ver si se puede hacer un cambio y me dejaron plantada en el chat, no he tenido tiempo de llamar por mi horario complicado de trabajo… me gusta la tienda pero esta compra ha sido mala experiencia

Excelente producto y protección

Son ligeras, no estorban, son gruesas, protegen bien y se ven mucho mejor. Con el complemento del pie se siente buena protección y el material es durable. Debí comprarlas antes.

Additional Product Information


Foam: 100.0% Polyurethane ; Lining: 55.0% Polyurethane, 45.0% Polyethylene Terephtalate ; Hook and loop tape: 100.0% Polyamide ; Buckles: 100.0% Styrene Ethylene Butadiene Styrene

How we measure protection

The protection provided by a product is based on 2 factors: 1) coverage of the zone to protect, 2) ability to absorb shocks. - To identify the protection zone, we conducted anatomical studies of the tibia. - For shock absorption, we, together with a dozen (male/female) boxers, studied the amount of energy transferred by a blow during sparring at an intermediate level, The 500 shin guard absorbs an impact of 10 joules (the standard calls for 3 joules), while remaining as lightweight as possible

How to design a shin guard that stays in place

To ensure your shin guard stays in place throughout your entire session, we started out with anatomical data. The goal? A design that truly hugs the shape of the tibia (shin). In this way, the foam is modeled along the natural lines of the shin ensuring your protective piece fits just right. We added 2 straps with a 2-way buckle that allows you to snugly fit the shin guard to your lower leg.

A shin guard that transforms into a shin-instep guard

Some combat sports are practiced while wearing shin guards (such as savate), while others are practiced wearing shin-instep guards (such as Muay Thai). What if you practice both types? Combining your 500 Ergo shin guard with your 500 ankle brace creates a shin-instep guard without having to get another set of gear and with the same level of protection!

The story of this product

From the start we wanted a product that accurately fits the shin while being easy to convert into a shin-instep guard. So our product design team started out with anatomic studies in conjunction with the SportsLab, then 3D models and tests using different types of material. After a ton of feedback, a host of prototypes, lab tests and multiple tests in sports clubs with over 30 male and female boxers, we are proud to introduce a product that is reliable, ergonomic, and versatile!

Our product design team explains the twist effect

The so-called twist effect happens when a shin guard slips out of place during training, either to the side, or up or down. This can result in losing valuable training time and momentum while having to readjust your shin guards. This is why we are proud to offer a shin guard that truly solves this problem. Now fighters can fully focus on their training! It provides a feeling of freedom of movement, fits much better, and is therefore more comfortable.”

Storage instructions

Remember to take your shin guard out of your sports bag after each training session.
