Knee Shin protection &
I ma currently using a 661 rage knee protection, it does the job but it does not protect my shin.
After a nasty crash this morning, I had some skin peeled off in my shin area. I need a knee and shin protection, can you please recommend that has great coverage of protection, reliable and durable.
But all the pros only wear knee pads! Knee/shin combos are sooo 2009.
Kidding, of course. Fashion aside, there's nothing like taking a good chunk out of your shin to make you reevaluate what you're using. Been there. I use these and love them. Lizardstore
If it's a shortish loop without a lot of technical or high-speed descending, I usually skip them and take my chances, but on anything that tests the limits of my travel and brakes, the Lizard Skins go on. I've picked broken sticks and gravel out of them many times.
One option is to just get shin guards (661 Evos can be found pretty cheap)
