    Roach Rally FR leg or Rockgardn Landing Zone

    Roach Rally FR leg armor or Rockgardn Landing Zone Knee/Shin Guard???

    i want it to be high protection, so when i mess up on a dirt jump or a drop i can land on my knees instead of breaking my legs, and reletivly good air flow
    not roach ralley dh because i cant find a good price for it

    Rockgardn Landing Zone is more beefy by quite a bit. The Rockgardn LZMX are closer to the Rally FR, and much more breathable. The Landing Zone are very nice but are definitley more DH-ish and not nearly as pedalable (sp?)

    The Rockgardn LZMX are very, very sweet

    take a look at Lizard Skins. I have been using them all season and I swear they are the best knee/shin combo pads around.
    Hard outer plastic protecs while all pad to skin contact is covered in soft material.

    NO SLIPPING period!

    There is no shortage of velcro or hook and loop fastners.

    Cheap too.

    i've been using the roach rally DH shins for almost 3 years now, i think. they kick ASS! don't slide around at all, nothing's cracked (and they've had some abuse), and still as comfortable as ever. i'd definitely pick the roach leg armour if i were you.

    My vote is for the Roach FR. I have a pair of those right now, and the best thing I love about them is that they go so low on your shin. So it protects above your shoe if you hit a rock or stump. They aren't itchy inside like other brands are and they are probably the best shin/knee guards I have used.

    Either Roach (FR or DH) gets my vote. They just feel super good compared to others I've tried. I wont change from my FR's.

    I have a local shop where I can try them all (almost), and went with the Rally FR. I have taken a couple of pretty hard falls this year and they performed very well. Most guys like their RG gear too, though...
