Cameron Cwrote a review of G-Form Pro-X Shin Pads on August 11, 2015
I'm lucky enough to have a wife that really likes to mountain bike. I upgraded my wife's pedals to a nice pair of platform pedals, which have worked out really well for riding. The problem is that my wife kept scraping her shins on the platform pedal pins. I bought her a pair of these shin guards cause she needed something simple to protect her shins.
These shin guards work great for non-aggressive riders who just need something simple. It's saved my wife's shins. They're not hot on a summer day but they do keep your shins warm when the temperatures drop.
The added bonus to the shin guards is they seem to keep mosquitoes off of your shins/calves. After riding a camping for a couple of days, all of my wife's mosquito bites were located above where the shin guards had been.
Bottom line: She can't ride without them!
