Frequently Asked Questions about our Ball Hockey Shin guards
This is your go-to place for unraveling all those perplexing questions you might have about selecting and properly wearing shin guards for ball hockey.
If you choose shin guards from a recognized ball hockey manufacturer like Knapper, you can trust they're designed to handle ball hockey-related impacts.
Wearing shin guards during ball hockey games offers numerous benefits, including protection against injuries from impacts and collisions. They can prevent serious damage to your shins, a particularly vulnerable part of your body during play. Furthermore, knowing you're protected can boost your confidence, allowing you to play more aggressively and take calculated risks.
The type of shin guard suited for your play style depends on how you play the game. For players who frequently slide or block shots, a more protective shin guard with additional padding might be beneficial, like on the AK7 Pro shin guards. On the other hand, if you're a fast, agile player, you might prefer a lighter, more streamlined shinguard for greater mobility. We recommend our AK5 shin guards model for such players.
The ideal length of ball hockey shin guards varies from person to person, as it depends on the length of the individual's lower leg. A properly sized shin guard should sit comfortably from just above your ankle to just below your knee. Refer to our sizing chart for a more precise fit.
