In hockey, impact and stress don't only occur when you crash into something (or someone), but with each shift your legs make. In order to propel forward, a player shifts his weight constantly and puts a lot of pressure on his legs. That's why it's vital that a player wear proper hockey protective gear, like shin guards. At Great Skate Hockey Supply Company, we have the latest shin guards from the brands the pros trust.

A great set of hockey shin guards should function like body armor. That's exactly the thinking behind the design of the Bauer Vapor series. The outer shells were created for long-lasting durability, while the overall design stresses versatility. Adjustable at almost every point, Bauer Vapor APX shin guards adapt to any size player, adult or junior, in any position with any style of play!
