Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is used to provide the utmost protection for our players. The ProGuards front shell is made from 100% carbon fiber.

Carbon fiber is high in strength (22x as strong as plastic) and will withstand the impact from all challenges in a football match.

Along with its strength, carbon fiber provides excellent force dispersion which is paramount in a contact sport like football.

EVA-Tech Foam

Our Carbon Fiber ProGuards are reinforced by EVA-Tech foam to provide a second line of defence behind the carbon fibre front shell.

The EVA-Tech foam backing is utilised to provide additional shock absorption and ultimately protection of players.

The shape of the shin guard moulds to the contour of your shin allowing a streamline fit for maximum player comfort. The diamond-cut design of the foam allows efficient sweat and odour dispersion during gameplay.


Protection is at the forefront of the Carbon Athletic ProGuard. It is imperative that our players are protected with the best at all times during their football careers.

Carbon fiber provides superior protection comparative to traditional plastic shin guards. Unlike plastic, carbon fiber possesses high strength, high impact resistance and excellent force dispersion.

These properties ensure that our ProGuards provide ultimate protection and overall safety for our players.


Our Carbon Athletic ProGuards allow players to compete for 90 minutes without the burden of traditional shin guards weighing them down.

Their light weight is not a substitute for their strength. Our ProGuards provide premium protection and comfort all in one. Speed is vital in football – our ProGuards will not hold you back.
