Product feature
  1. How we measure protectionWe'll explain
    The protection provided by a product is based on two 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
  2. 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 modelled along the natural lines of the shin ensuring your protective piece fits just right. We added 2 straps with a two-way buckle that allows you to snugly fit the shin guard to your lower leg.
  3. A shin guard that transforms into a shin-instep guard
    Some combat sports are practised while wearing shin guards (such as savate), while others are practised wearing shin-instep guards (such as Muay Thai). What if you practise 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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."

    Depending on your height, you can choose the right size for your shin pads: S:1.34m to 1.64m M: 1.64m to 1.82m L: 1.82m to 2m.
