How are your shin guards made?

All of our shin guards are handmade in Wales, UK

Will the personalisation come off? Is it a sticker?

No. We do not use stickers to personalise our shin guards. Our personalisation is ‘infused’ into the guard during manufacturing therefore it has a hard wearing coating making the graphics or personalisation permanent. It will not peel off like a sticker would over time.

The Shin Guards are expensive, why?

We use only the highest grade of Carbon Fibre and although Carbon Fibre has been used for shin guards before, other brands often use ‘fillers’ or fibreglass to reduce their manufacturing costs. We only use 3k twill weave pre-preg carbon fibre that is manufactured in the UK and is the highest aerospace grade commercially available. We use 6 layers of this carbon fibre in every pair we produce and the shin guards are made to order by hand. Producing moulds and the consumables required to make each pair all costs significant amounts of money. We think we are very competitively priced compared to other brands on the market and what they supply.

Do I need to replace the shin guards every season?

No. Buying new shin guards every season is a thing of the past with the Patronus Elite Carbon Fibre shin guard. We have some customers that are still using their shin guards from 2011! If you look after the shin guards properly after each use, there is no reason why you can’t continue to wear them for many seasons and years.

How do I wash the Patronus Shin Guards?

How can I keep them in good condition?

To ensure our shin guards remain in good condition it is recommended that they are cleaned once per week after use with warm soapy water and a cloth. It is also imperative they are kept in their drawstring bag before and after use for safe storage.

What are the benefits?

The Patronus Sports Elite Carbon Fibre Shin Guards are 22 times stronger than traditional plastic shin guards. This provides for high impact shock absorption and force dispersion, reducing your risk of injury substantially. The lightweight and low-profile design also means that you are able to have the ultimate protection without having large, uncomfortable shin guards weighing you down.

What is Poron XRD?

Poron XRD is the padding on the back of the shin guards.

Comfortable, flexible, and lightweight, Poron XRD allows for soft, non-constricting padding and cushioning while still absorbing more than 90% of energy when impacted at high strain rates.
PORON XRD protection is a cutting edge technology that has been specially designed to utilise the natural behaviour of polymers to its advantage. It exploits the phenomenon that polymers can act as either a soft or hard (firm) material dependent on either temperature or the rate of impact.
In the case of Poron XRD protection, at room temperature or 'at rest', it is soft and contouring to the touch. But when impacted, the material behaves like a much firmer material, allowing it to readily absorb the energy of an impact.

Thus PORON XRD material acts as a layer of wearable protection. It is soft to the touch, lightweight, contouring, and testing confirms that it absorbs more than 90 percent of energy upon repeated impact.

Because it is lightweight and flexible, like a ‘second skin,’ PORON XRD protection will not constrict freedom of movement or range of motion, allowing end users to achieve their peak.

Are the shin guards suitable for football players of all ages?

Yes, we have 4 different sizes to accommodate football/soccer players of all ages – from children to adults.

How do I know which size shin guards will fit me?

We have a handy size guide on our website and as a general rule, if you currently wear a medium shin guard in another brand, you will also be a medium in the Patronus Sports shin guards. Sizing is, however, up to our customers. Some players choose smaller shin guards others prefer large guards or more protection.
