Your shin guards for inline hockey are the same as you’d wear for ice hockey, so the size you need will depend on whether you like to wear them under your inline skate tongue or over it. They should fit snug around your kneecap and extend down to cover the top of your ankle.
Depending on your preference, there are also different fit profiles: traditional shin guards like the CCM Tacks 9550 tend to have a bulkier yet more protective fit, whereas contoured profile guards like the Bauer Vapor have a more streamlined, anatomical profile to them. Tapered shin guards such as the Bauer X offer a middle ground between anatomical and traditional gear, having a higher-volume fit around the top half and tapering down into a more anatomical profile towards the bottom.
The most important thing to remember with your shin guards is how comfortable they feel to you and whether they hinder your skating or not.
If you’re new to inline hockey, it’s a great idea to visit us in-store and try on different types of shin guards to find the fit and feel that you like best.
The CCM 9550 suits broader beginners that prefer a bulkier fit, whereas the Jetspeed FT475 is lightweight with plenty of protection in the areas you need most, which is also an excellent option for women players. The Warrior Alpha LX 40 and the Bauer X shin guards are also fantastic anatomical choices for beginners to try out.
