The Shift Racing Enforcer Knee/Shin Guard will be there for you the next time you slip a foot peg and all your weight pushes your shin into the serrated edge, or you go down in the knurliest of rock gardens. One of the most overlooked pieces of MX gear in your gear bag is the Knee/Shin Guard. Keep those knees and shins happy with a pair of these life savers.
High-impact plastic shell for maximum protection.
Two-piece pivoting design conforms to rider movement.
Ventilated foam padded backing with abrasion resistant binding.
Dual elastic adjustment straps with hook and loop closures for a secure fit.
13 yr old son wanted a bike so he could ride with some of his friends. For a still growing boy, these shin guards were reasonably priced and fit perfect under his pants and so far have held up good as he is learning to ride
I rode alot when I was younger , getting back into heavy and this is my first pair of shin protection . Second ride on my brand new bike I hit a spot in Sand that made me turf it in a whoop pretty good , I hit my knee hard and it wasnt bad , Drz400 is a bike bike weight wise compared to the 2 strokes of the past I am used to running so it made me happy to have them and I know it would have been much worse without them .
More comfortable than expected. I'm a bigger guy and was concerned the guards would not fit. They fit great, however the elastic straps are at their limit on me. I wear them under my pants and they fit down into the top of the boot giving good protection from the top of the knee down. Note, these do not offer lateral knee protection they are not braces. They are great defense against sto e bruises.
They are pretty nice but they really itch and scratch your knees, they aren’t that comfy and they are super hot. However they are super protective and didn’t shift at all while I was riding. Nice product for the price
Bought this for when i was learning to ride. now that i have them i won't ride without them. they have saved may knees so many times from fast wipeouts to smashing it on tress they are durable and do not pinch the knees.
Really protects me from small brush that can be whip like. I have only went down once but they worked well. I have bad knees so some form of protection is important. It could use another strap up top as the knee portion flops around but under pants it is not an issue.
It doesn't have a swivel point towards the knee part, which I thought was going to be a problem, but once you wear them and put your riding pants in over them you can't even tell they are on and it doesn't bother me what so ever ehile riding! Full protection and at a great price. You can't turn these down!
Great knee protection that I never thought I needed until I needed it. I have tested these thoroughly with carefully planned get offs that leave you wondering if the air will ever find your lungs again. During these strategic tests I have yet to suffer any pain where these provide protection..
I decided to try these due to price and overall decent reviews. I have discovered that I need a little more protection than standard pants offer. I am a big guy and these Shift guards fit surprisingly well and look sturdy and durable. They were comfortable over a pair of knee high mx socks. I am happy with the purchase.
They work really well. The other ones I had before were alpinestars and they had a more fabric inside which got a lot wetter and dirty while riding. The straps on these are also awesome, really strong and sturdy. Only thing that was somewhat worrying is they say on the packaging not designed for motorcycles, only mtb. I imagine all the basic knee and shin guards say that since they are not CE rated, but just thought I would include that in case someone is concerned about it
I have two boys, 6yo and 9yo and these work great. They have extra foam padding that extends outside of the hard plastic shell to offer extra protection. We wear them inside the pants and boots so they don't get hooked on the bike. One son complained of having the elastic against his skin. He wears knee high socks now, and no more discomfort. Good stuff from Shift.
I'm really happy with these knee guards overall. I started to wear them before I ever thought a pair of socks were necessary, and I won't lie they would chafe my legs and slide down. Now with long socks they don't chafe or cut off circulation. I am happy with the size although I have to make the Velcro almost as tight as possible. It doesn't matter though, they stay in place and do their job. I have had several crashes where these knee guards have held their own and protected my knees and shins from being shattered by my bike or rocky ground. They still look great and I'm super satisfied, especially for the price.
These are great knee guards, especially for the price. The first time I wore them, they were a little uncomfortable, but after a little adjustment, they feel great and seem to offer good protection. I can't speak to the durability as Ive only had them a few weeks, but I would definitely recommend them.
Before purchasing, I was concerned about fit and comfort. They are fine on both counts. I've worn them all day on bare knees and shin and after a few minutes you don't even notice them. They are not the heaviest duty guards, but should do the job in most situations. They've saved my shins from a few bruises already
Let me start out by saying I do not like shift gear. Most of it is complete garbage by the third ride. I was given these, along with a full set of shift gear, as a gift 3 or 4 years ago. While all the other gear is long gone, these guards have held up through dozens of crashes and hundreds of hours of riding. They are scratched and gouged over both kneecaps, but I have never gotten more than mild to moderate bruising, despite some HARD knee impacts. The elastic straps have held their stretch so far, and the velcro closure remains solid. My only gripe would be that the interior kneecap rubs some as the knee flexes, but not nearly as bad as other brands I have used. If you need knee/shin guards and your budget is under $80, these would be my recommendation.
I bought these to use with my Oniel boots. There is no way I can use them with boots as they are too long. I gave them away since shipping them back to RockyMountain would have cost what I paid for them. The kid I gave them to uses them for skateboarding. He seems to like them.
Not bad for the price. But if you take a fall on some hard ground you will be bruised through these things, just ask my wife! we have upgraded to some thicker knee pads now... I like these for more casual riding though, and are MUCH better than nothing!
If by race boots you mean typical motocross/off road boots id say yes. They are designed to be worn inside both the riders pants and boots. I have quite the set of chicken legs and they help me get a good snug fit inside the boots and they are not so bulky that they will make a set of well fitting boots be too tight. Most boots will have adequate adjustment to allow the pads to fit in nicely by opening up the adjustment of the ladders on the boots.
Yes they do, BUT you need to have an extra notch of room in your boots (meaning we had to loosen his boots a notch to fit comfortably) - otherwise it would be too tight. My son is only 13 & only 5'3" so for a taller person you may not need to tuck them that far into the boots.
They fit in my Alpinestar tech 8 with no problem. Not sure what "race boot" you are using. Most of the guys I used to race with were using a lot more expensive knee braces/ shin gaurds. I never felt the need. Still using these with my "non-race" tech 5. Comfort boots.
Anything dirt bike boots they will fit. You just have to loosen the straps on the boot. However my son just sprained his MCL. From falling on his knee. It didn't protect his knee because it sometimes falls down
