Sweaty shins are uncomfortable, bruised shins are worse. Of course, any body armor is going to warm things up a bit, but lightweight, soft shell pads usually don't provide adequate protection for serious DH riding. G-Form thinks it has the answer. The Shin Pads have G-Form's proprietary RPT padding, a material that transforms from soft to hard shell protection in a millisecond. Because of the glaring inadequacies of hard- and soft-shell body armor, the good folks at G-Form decided to come up with a new, revolutionary design. They felt that hard shell armor was uncomfortable and soft shell armor didn't provide enough protection. G-Form's RPT splits the difference. It's both, and neither. RPT is a soft, flexible foam material that conforms to the contours of your body. However, in the event of an impact, it hardens instantly to provide the protection of a hard shell. It truly is the best of both worlds. RPT actually protects even better than hard shell because it absorbs the impact to prevent damage caused by repeated, rebounding impacts. The G-Form Shin Pad is made up of a fabric main body and a large RPT pad. The main body is stretchy, breathable synthetic fabric. This material allows air to pass through so your skin can breathe and you can stay cool. It also keeps the pad firmly in place so your shin protection stays in place whether you're standing on the descent or grinding your way up the climb in the seated position. The G-Form Shin Pad is available in four sizes: Small through X-Large. It comes in Black or Yellow.
