Maybe a bad way for introducing oneself to the forum, but I’ve got to ask the stupid question
Can anybody tell me, what’s the difference between soccer shin guards and the special bicycling shin guards? I know, the one are meant for bicycling, the others for playin soccer. But why? Is there a reason against using soccer shin guards for unicycling trials? (or a reason FOR bicycling guards)
I have neither of them, but I just recognized, soccer shin guards are way cheaper (: …
these are good shinguards for BiccLig/unicycling:
These are soccer shinguards:
You can see that shinguards designed for Biking covers a lot more of the lower leg and is better suited for nasty pedals hitting the leg from any direction.
One will make your legs hotter than the other- and probably protect better and cost more. It’s up to you how hot and protected you want your legs to be, and if you consider knee protection to be important.
i used soccer shin guards before i got my sixisxone’s for a little bit and they were really bad, go with the sixsixone 4x4’s because they are way better then soccer shin guards, and i think i did a thread on this before you might want to do a search, but im not really sure
thanks for the replies!
@habbywall: Yeah… I found your post ; But you just said you would try to use soccer guards.
I haven’t got the money for the sixsixones at the moment. so should I wait until I can afford them or should I get soccer shin guards for the time being?
As I see it the soccer shin guards are at about 15EUR, and the sixsixone at 45EUR.
What about these ones? :
They don’t seem much bigger than average soccer shin guards but nevertheless they are suggested for trials.
Thanks alot for helping me!
those soccer shin guards look like they would work well for riding bc. just turn them inwards.
I found some catchers shin knee guards from my local sports coach. They were free too. I took off some of the extra pieces i didn’t need. They are kinda big but work perfect.
I bought my 661’s for $20. That ain’t bad
