Arguably the best MMA Shin Instep Guards on the market, the Hybrid Elite were made with the professional fighter in mind. These shin guards are made with light-weight injection molded foam, contoured to the shape of your shin. The padding is thickest along high impact areas, and tapered along the sides for a comfortable fit. They are wrapped in premium cowhide leather for extra strong durability, as well as an elegant look and feel. The best and most beloved feature about these shins is the strapping system. Our Crossgrip-DSS straps are patented, and feature 2 straps running in opposite directions. This technological advancement was created after we kept hearing complaints from professional fighters and trainers about their shin guards spinning around the leg when they kicked. The Crossgrip-DSS makes sure that the shin guards stay securely in position no matter how hard you kick!
