Impact Absorption Foam

Poron® XRD™ is the best impact absorption foam on the market. When impacted molecules in the foam gather and the foam freezes, this causes the collision force to disperse over a larger area. Because of that, the stress to the user is minimized. Poron® XRD™ foam has been tested to absorb up to 90 % of the collision energy when impacted.



Unlike foams used in other shin guard brands, the open cell nature of Poron® XRD™ Technology helps the foam maintain its original form and function… hit after hit! The molecules will not break down over time as they do some competitive materials. Therefore you get the same superior cushioning and protection throughout the lifetime of the product.

Microban® Antimicrobial Protection protects our guards against bacteria and odour. So one less thing for you to worry about.







3D Grip Technology



The inner side of the 4kickerz shin guards is covered in a special 3D-Grip-Technology coated fabric, this results in 40 % more grip in contact with your skin in comparison to the closest competitor fabrics. You can forget about having to use additional tapes and sleeves to hold your shin guards in place. The 3D-Grip-Technology and the extreme lightness combined with good socks will keep your shin guards securely in place.
Perfect Fit / 360°Flexibility



Standard carbon or plastic hard shell shin guards are rigid and can never fit the shape of your leg properly. 4kickerz shin guards are soft and fully flexible. They are incredibly comfortable to wear and most importantly, their form will adapt to match every leg shape. This means they will fit you perfectly every time. Needless to say, a better fit results in superior protection!.


Extreme Lightness

Our shin guards are astonishingly light. One guard weighing 25-42 grams (depending on the size) they are the lightest shin guards out there, lighter than any plastic or carbon fibre ones. You will completely forget you are wearing them altogether.

HandMade

We strive for quality and customer satisfaction above all. We are committed to making the best shin guards and giving the customer a unique and exclusive product. Making compromises to minimize the costs of materials or manufacturing is not in our interest. 4kickerz shin guards are not a product of mass production, but rather every single shin guard is handmade.



Fully Customizable

The front side appearance of our FLEX 360 basic model is set in advance, however, we have devised two options of customization, so you can make your shin guards even more special by giving them a personal touch. To have the desired front side graphic, you can choose between the FLEX 360 CUSTOM and FLEX 360 DESIGNER model.

The FLEX 360 CUSTOM makes it possible for you to come up with the desired graphic yourself. Through a plug-in, you can upload a photo and then play with the design tools for as long as you wish. Of course, you can view the final product before proceeding to payment.

If you would like to have your graphic designed professionally, we suggest the FLEX 360 DESIGNER. By clicking on 'hire a designer' you can tell our design team about your wishes and ideas and they will design your personal graphic accordingly. Try it out, challenge us with your ideas! Besides, this model allows you to include up to 3 photos per graphic (that is per shin guard).

The graphic can be identical for both shin guards or different.


We have developed a new way for a graphic to be imprinted onto the shin guard, as we wanted the print to match up to its flexibility. So our print is as flexible as the shin guards themselves. Furthermore, the graphic is durable and will not wash off or fade over time.
