Fairtex SP8 Shin Pads are perfect for Muay Thai, Kickboxing and MMA training. They use durable Syntek Leather, along with two layers of high density foam help to disperse impact. An ergonomic design helps to minimize sliding and movement while training. Compared to previous models of Fairtex shin pads, the SP8 model offers extended lateral protection of the knee joint. Moving the knee protector to the side of the pads allows for better movement and defense against devastating kicks to the knee. These shinguards can also accommodate a larger calf width than other models, because the shin pad area is wider than most.
The SP8 Shin Pads feature a “bridge system” similar to the Fairtex SP7 Shin Pads. This system’s ergonomic design provides ankle support, while preventing pressure and irritation to the top of the foot. The shin and toe protector can be adjusted (up/down , left/right) up to 180 degrees for superior comfort and protection. Soft piping on the turn-up of the foot protector to maximize comfort and protection. These shin pads are ideal for Muay Thai and Kickboxing, and other combat sports where toe kicks are possible (like Karate and Taekwondo).
These pads are available in sizes small, medium,large, and extra- large. There are 2 adjustable velcro straps at the back of the shin to customize fit. The velcro adjustment does not have a metal loop, making these shin pads suitable for amateur competition.
A durable, cotton microfiber lining helps to provide a comfortable and movement free fit. The surface in contact with your shin and foot is stitching free to prevent irritation.
