Easton Mako Shinguard

Your leg is made up of four bones to assist in getting you moving quicker, allowing more bends. Your shin guards should be able to reflect that same type of movement to keep you moving at a fast pace, all the time.The Easton Mako Shin Guards are composed of three pieces, including a thicker and stiffer plastic central shin cap that will protect you from speeding pucks and hard slashes. The injected lateral calf wrap is a relatively thin plastic that will optimize your overall flexibility but keep the weight at a minimum.The Mako Shin Guards also include an anatomic knee guard, which fits the basic contours of your knee to keep you comfortable and flexible. The ergonomic shin allows your shin and knee to sit very deep while maintaining a high level of comfortability. The shin guard shell is cut up at the bottom to maximize stride length without restriction. The kneecap provides you with greater lateral support while locking the knee into proper position. Taping becomes easier as well as the tapeline just below the knee allows the tape to rest evenly, resulting in a secure fit.The liner is removable, making it easy to clean either by hand or in the washing machine. Ventilation is important when playing in those long contests, so Easton has included a line of steady airflow through the liner to keep you at top speed. The micro-mesh comfort liner will also wick away moisture to keep your leg dryer.One inch nylon straps under the back of the knee promote an even steadier fit while the wide tapered neoprene strap secures around the middle of your calf.

wow
After 14+ yrs of my jofa 8090's I never thought I would replace them, well I took a shot and cracked one of them. I looked high and low at every shin guard on the market and found the answer in these. They are amazing very lightweight and flex and move with you right out of the box. If you are in the market I cannot suggest them enough.

Pros: Helped improve my game, Quality, Easy to use
The Easton Mako shin pads are the first new pads that I have bought since the 90's. I always thought my old Jofa's were great, till I blocked a shot with the side of my knee. After that I acquired a pair of Warrior hustler pads and they were ok but they just did not fit right. From the first time I put the Easton's on in Total Hockey they felt great and comfortable, they are light weight with out loose any protection. I Love the way Easton is going with their equipment. As for the use on the ice the Mako's are light and the fit under the Reebok edge socks is tight fitting and slim. You can go out and play to your fullest without any thoughts about the Mako's not holding up or movement. Overall I am
extremely pleased with the Easton Mako shin pads.
