When Hayabusa originally introduced their Kanpeki line, they raised the bar for mixed martial arts sparring gear. After carefully re-engineering and improving their striking shin guards, the Kanpeki Elite 2.0 set is ready. Built with beautiful full-grain leather that give these hand-crafted shin guards a raw and traditional look. But a quick look at the specs and you'll find the quality is anything but simple.
Premium quality padding, inspired by Deltra-EG technology, protects your shin and instep. The reliable padding is designed to absorb even the hardest kicks without "bottoming out" (where the padding is compressed to its maximum).
Triple-layered padding offers unrivaled instep protection. And if you're tired of catching a shin right in the space where the instep meets the shin area, you'll love the Kanpekis. Their unique padding addresses this issue by offering a slanted section, eliminating those annoying gaps so often found between the shin and instep areas.
Dual hook-and-loop straps keep everything firmly in place to achieve zero shifting while you spar. Full-coverage shin protection with comfortable ridges make these the perfect pair of shin guards for training all-out kickboxing or MMA striking.
Little more than I wanted to spend ;-) but still a good price. I've heard good things. Guess I'll find out for myself how good they are.
