Shin Guards Care

Care and Durability of Your Shins

Shin guards are essential for your protection during training and matches. Just like you take care of your boxing gloves, it's just as important to take care of your shins to keep them in the best possible shape.

*Here's what you need to know:*

1. *After Training:* Just like the gloves, do not immediately put the shin pads in your bag or plastic bag. This favors the development of bacteria and unpleasant odors.

2. *Avoid Common Deodorants:* Although they can mask the odor temporarily, the chemicals in them can damage the material of your shins.

3. *Correct Drying:* Let the shins dry in a well-ventilated place. Forced drying or direct sunlight may cause deformation or damage.

4. *Cleaning:* Use an antimicrobial spray or mild cleaning solutions (check our website for recommended options) to clean them weekly.

5. *Variation:* If you train hard and daily, it can be helpful to have two pairs of shins to alternate between, making sure each pair has time to dry properly between sessions.

6. *Storage:* Keep the shins in a special cover or in a place where they are protected from dust, moisture and direct sunlight.

7. *Replacement:* Even with the best care, shin pads wear out. For those who exercise often, it is recommended to replace them every 6-12 months to ensure maximum protection.

By taking proper care of your shins, you not only extend their life, but also ensure that you benefit from the optimal level of protection during training. Protect your equipment, and it will protect you!
