The ZWEIKAMPF Shin Guard is the world’s first serially produced 3D printed shin guard. Its anatomy, which is the result of innumerable 3D shin scans, is perfect for every football player. It can even be custom-printed according to the 3D scan of an athlete’s own shin. The structure of the 3D printed shell, combined with the unique Y-Structure and the "gritty" relief, offers optimal impact protection. The two layers behind the structure differ within their degrees of strength according to the player’s desired level of comfort. Players can also print their name and player number on the inside. The Shin Guard weighs only 75 g and is 7 mm thick.
