The G-Form Pro S Compact Shin Guards are, by far, the most comfortable, lightweight, and protective compression shin guards on the market.
Advanced compression cycling technology has been combined with SuperFit filtration and ballistics protection to create a product that meets NOCSAE and CE standards. The design of the G-Form Pro Series shin guards allows for adaptable, comfortable, performance-driven graduated compression.
Designed for quick and easy tape-on application, pain-free entry, and secure fit during training and playing.
The G-Form Pro Series shin guards are approved for play in the USA and in the EU.
The Pro Series shin guards are very similar to their Super Guard S model with a few changes. The G-Form Pro S shin guards are a great replacement for your Super Guards. They have the same advanced compression and SuperFit technology, but with a different upper sleeve. The Pro S shin guards have a shin guard sleeve that covers less of your shin as compared to the Super Guard S. Overall, they are very similar products, but you will most likely prefer the fit of the Pro S series over the Super Guard S since the sleeves are not as rigid.
The Pro S shin guards have changed from the original version. The new shin guard sleeve fits tighter and provides better support and comfort when playing. The Pro S shin guards also have plenty of padding in the forefoot area, which is where most shin injuries occur. The shin pads are now thicker and wider than previous models which would also help protect many types of injuries including but not limited to ACL tears.
Overall, the Pro S shin guards are great. They are comfortable, lightweight, and provide plenty of protection. I think anyone who is searching for some new shin guards should purchase the Pro S line. So, in my opinion, go for it!
G-Form is committed to the reduction of over-the-counter injuries and is proud to support safer play, through the establishment of skateboard and action sports at several local and international action sports events such as SXSW and BMX Pro Tour XLC.
