    Best leg armor?





    Obvious I'm in the need of some leg armor, price isn't really an object here. Protection and comfort are important to me. My foot slipped off the pedal while landing from a wheelie drop, the pedal spun around and slammed the hell out of my shin... lots of pain, and might have twisted my knee. So any suggestions for protection?
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    I would suggest a full coverage one like this

    Yes they look bulky but once broken in they protect really well and are comfortable
