The Flexlite shin protector consists of a compression sock with integrated high impact Polyanswer (patented technology). A compression sock and protection in one! The Flexlite shin protector feels extremely flexible as long as no impact is made on it. As soon as an impact is made, the shin protector becomes stiff and provides up to 90% shock absorption! The sleeves of the Flexlite are seamless. The shin guards adapt perfectly to the shin and are machine washable.
