    Anyone know where to get calf armor?

    The back of my legs are particularly chewed up right now and wanting something like these . Mec is way cheap but the shipping on a $8usd item is $20. Anyone found a good source for them in america? Or do other companies make similar products?

    what kinda protection? just like neoprean covers or like backwards shinnies?

    i you buy fox 911s they cover your calfs up nice, the neopren is good protection from scratches and stuff, not impact

    Hoots gear

    Check these out, they are the ultimate in calf protection:

    http://www.hootsgear.com/armor_goods.html

    Called the "FreeRide Shin", they have a big plastic calf plate with foam padding under it. And they hook up to the knee pad, providing some of the best impact protection you can get for your legs, and they have good ventilation. Or you can just get some BMX-style neoprene shinguards, they will take care of the scrapes:
