Shin & Ankle - Scooters
Ankle and Shin Guards Give You Essential Protection
Shin pads and ankle protectors are important bits of protection to prevent injury when pro scootering at the park or on the street. Although this protection is often forgotten, wearing these will help you focus on your riding and give you peace of mind.
Shin guards are designed to protect the lower leg and knee and will prevent nasty shinners from tailwhips. Modern shin protection is designed to be lightweight but durable and will harden upon impact to give you maximum protection. Ankle guards are designed the same way and will do a similar job around your ankle area.
A lot of shin and ankle protection can be worn under your clothes, so you don’t have to worry about them harming your look. Furthermore, many of the different shin and ankle guards can also be used for other sports as well, such as BMX.
Ankle Braces Will Provide Key Support
Ankle braces will provide support to your arch and give you a bit more comfort when riding. Furthermore, wearing ankle support will help speed up recovery and reduce swelling if you are to hit your deck or sprain your ankle.
Whatever your experience with pro scootering, it is always a good idea to wear protection. It will not only keep you safe but also give you a confidence boost.
Other important scooter protection you should consider includes Knee Pads and Elbow Pads.
