HOW THE TECH WORKS: STAGE ONE
Clunky, uncomfortable shin pads are no more, thanks to G-Form’s cutting edge Reaction Protection Technology (RPT). Their pads are the first soft, fully flexible guards to pass European safety standards. The molecules in the pad repel each other for a malleable fit. And as each weighs just 50g, you’ll forget you’re wearing them.

HOW THE TECH WORKS: STAGE TWO
They’re not lightweight in the tackle, either. When you go in for a crunching 50-50 challenge, the guard’s molecules absorb the impact and redistribute the energy by huddling together like you and your team-mates in a free-kick wall. The opposition hatchet man will have to look for another victim.
HOW THE TECH WORKS: STAGE THREE
Football is a fast game and just as you need to think quickly on the pitch, so does your gear. After winning your tackle and sprinting further up the pitch, the molecules in the shin pads repel each other again and return to their original flexible fit, ready for the next battle. Job done!
3 REASONS WHY YOU NEED THIS PAD
Sick of bulky, smelly shin pads that move around as you play? We know we are. Fortunately these guards suffer none of those problems...
WASH AND GO
G-Form shin pads are machine washable, so you can simply chuck them in with
your muddy kit after every game. The embarrassment of smell coming from your sweat-ridden pads will be a thing of the past.
At only .27in thick, the low profile fit lets your feet do the talking, rather than your guards. That means there’ll be no more shinning the ball into the goalkeeper’s arms when you’re planning to spank a 30-yard volley into the top corner.
NO MORE TAPE
Traditional shin pads require straps or tape to stop them from moving around and slipping down your shins. G-Form’s pads, however, slip on like a sock to provide a natural fit and reduce distractions so you can focus on your game.
