The hardened steel legs protection. This model is one of the most universal and tested in the world. The leg protection is very simple, but reliable and cheap. It was used by hundreds of fighters of all time and in a variety of championships in the IMCF and HMB leagues, including the Battle of the Nations and IMCF World Championships.
Steel legs consist of:
- Solid steel thighs with side segment
- Large poleyns with plate
- Greaves, with two flaps on each side. Type ¾ or full greaves.
Weight: 7.5 kg/set with closed greaves ( depends on size).
Because the thigh is solid, it perfectly protects your leg, because it is very difficult to break a solid piece of steel. The side segments are attached to the thigh, which will cover your leg from the left and right hits. Protection is fastened with arm points and a leather strap that fastens around your leg. So the steel thigh will sit comfortably.
Large poleyns will protect your knees well. We added a plate to it from below. So you will not have a gap in the armor between the shin and knee, even when you running or getting your leg high. Poleyn placed over the greave and steel thigh, forming an overlap. So it can even better to take a strike. To the steel thigh, the poleyn is fastened with a leather band and a strap around the leg. Due to this, it will always be in place, not crawling in battle and not interfering.
The greave’s front part is made solid and able to withstand the hit of both one-handed and two-handed weapons. Two side segments will cover you from the left and right strikes and cover your calf muscle. This is especially important in tournaments 1 vs 1, when in motion you need to stay protected from side hits to the shin. Greaves are fastened around the legs by two leather straps. So they are in the right place and don’t slip down when you running. Also, the shin’s protection can be tied to the quilted stockings using an arm point. Below we added a leather band, to keep your greaves comfortable and they do not interfere with you during movement.
This model was once made for the fighters of the Ayna Bera club. We needed universal protection for tournaments 1 on 1 and mass battles. It should be simple, reliable, and durable. These steel legs are perfect for us. For many years, they have been used by world-class fighters, winners of the BotN and World Championships of the IMCF. A simple solution to a complex problem.
