Looking at buying some shin guards to begin some more manic downhill MTBiking.

Has anyone got any models to recommend or tips on purchase/ fit etc?

Regards

Ross

661 makes some pretty heavy-duty ones called Ricochet--I have 'em and love 'em. They're bulky but fine for DH. Climbing seems like it would be awkward in them.

I wear 661 Riccochet guards as well and I love 'em too. They're comfortable, don't move around too much and above all...Tough as hell. I've smacked my shins a few times wearing them and NOTHING has even come close to hurting me. A good buy!
