For SPD users the journey into flat pedal riding can be a perilous one. Sure, you’re going to improve your technique and learn to bunnyhop properly, but you’re also liable to landing a set of pins into your leg. The problem is that a lot of shin guards look like they’ve come out of the Darth Vader spares bin, and for a lot of people are a bit over the top.

For SPD users the journey into flat pedal riding can be a perilous one. Sure, you’re going to improve your technique and learn to bunnyhop properly, but you’re also liable to landing a set of pins into your leg. The problem is that a lot of shin guards look like they’ve come out of the Darth Vader spares bin, and for a lot of people are a bit over the top.

The Veggie wraps are made from neoprene with a plastic insert where your shin bone will be and close on the back using Velcro. This means they are lighter and better looking than full-plastic ones. It also means that if you ride a bit of street they can be worn under jeans a lot easier, so you can be down with the kids rather than down at A&E. They won’t offer as much protection as Darth’s legs, but they will stop silly pedal slips hurting like hell.

Overall: Thinking about trying flats again? Think about trying these.
