Shin Guards

No. While SAK previously utilized carbon fiber, we have since evolved to incorporate advanced materials that offer superior performance without discomfort. Our shin guards are made from strong polymer materials, commonly used in military and aeronautical applications, ensuring robust protection during football practice.

SAK shin guards are certified according to the EN 13061 European standard, undergoing rigorous impact and chemical testing. They are designed to absorb high energy impacts, significantly reducing the risk of injuries. However, it’s important to note that shin guards cannot fully protect against all serious injuries caused by high-impact or dangerous tackles.

SAK shin guards can be used with a soccer sock, compression sock, or shin guard stays. Each pair comes with a complimentary set of calf sleeves, specifically designed to keep the shin guards securely in place. Additional support accessories can be purchased separately if needed.

Thanks to their custom-fit design, SAK shin guards tend to slip less than standard models. However, for optimal performance, we recommend using them with the provided calf sleeves, shin guard stays, or other support accessories.
