Race Face Rally FR Leg Guard - Men's $0.00
Designed and tested by pro riders Darren Berrecloth and Paul Basagoitia, the Race Face Men's Rally FR Leg Guard give you ultimate protection with the benefit two-piece articulation and freedom of movement that puts Robocop to shame.

A Fit Specific Strapping System delivers customizable comfort and the strength to keep your armor locked under extreme stress. The inside of the straps are lined with soft material to prevent chafing, and convenient 'grab tabs' make it easy to adjust the Rally FR Leg Guard on the fly.

When i pulled these out of the package my first thought was "that looks like storm trooper armour". Anyway, these are some seriously durable knee and shin guards. Took a few nasty falls with these before the season ended and i came out of the falls without so much as a scratch (on my legs). Very breathable as they dont have the enclosed sleeve on the back apposed to Race Faces DH model. I'd suggest these to anyone who wants a little leg protection when attempting gnarly descents .
Men's Race Face Rally FR Leg Guard
Overall these leg guards are great!
Here are is my feedback to help the next person get the most out of their purchase.
The one regret that I have is I wish I ordered large instead of extra large. Based on the sizing chart, the measurements I took was border line between the large and extra large, since this was the case I assumed the large would be a tight fit. Once I actually put them on, I could tell the large would of been a better choice... so my point is, if you are borderline between two sizes, go with the smaller size.. Other than that, I've got no complaints..
I will say this, by having an extra large pair, the bottom of the guards rest at the top of my foot so I never have to worry about them slipping when I loosen the straps..!

I do alot of woods XC style riding which has long climbs and equally long downhills and I am curious if this would be too heavy or cumbersome for this style of riding. I am really looking for something to protect my legs from sticks and brush on the trail...will these work?
I have an older version of these and I used them for XC stuff wtih lots of logs and rocks. They worked pretty well but for really long climbs I would take them off and stash them in my Camelbak. For just brush and sticks you really don't need anything hard padded like these though.
Race Face Armor Fit Guide
Good protection, good fit
It uses three straps across the calf and one that criss crosses around the back of the knee. Fits really well. Doesnt breath extremely well but very comfortable. I would definitely recommend them.
Extremely disappointed. I have the arm version and am happy with the fit and
coverage. My old Fox launch knee/shin pads were on their last leg after 2.5
seasons so i figured i'd try the RF Rally legs to go along with the arms i already
had. Fit for these pads felt good and seemed relatively secure from movement.
However, the coverage is terrible. There is no protection on top of the knee (above
the kneecap). Whenever you bend your leg, it forms a scope that completely
exposes upper soft knee tissue and lower quad area. I had a recent crash
and sure enough this vulnerable area was slammed. Fortunately it was just
bloody and bruised with no long lasting damage. The basic Fox launch pads kill
these things! Save yourself an unnecessary injury.
Do you guys have these in stock in...
Do you guys have these in stock in Large?
No, and I don't see that we have any on order... Might be a while before we see any larges in.
Hmm, there must be a reason Backcountry has not ordered more of these. I won't trust anything Backcountry.com doesn't. This just made my decision not to order these from another site that does have large's in stock!
These leg guards are great. I totally forget I have them on when I'm riding. They awsome and don't move around, even when climbing.
Great fitting leg guard
I was skeptical at first but the fit is really great and the quality of protection is great for brutal conditions. Any leg guard that doesn't require removal for a climb or two is well worth the coin.
I had the previous years Roach/RF pads. These are improved.
1. Better strap length.
2. Straps are attached to the pads better.
3. Knee stays in place better due to stronger elastic in the top straps and slightly different material cut.
These don't move around, and they don't interfere with pedaling.
An improvement to an already good pad.
