Price: $48.00


Description Sizing Shipping Information
Made from ecological leather, "Geko" Forearm Protectors PRO, decrease the chances of getting injured during historical fencing trainings. They are very durable and specially cambered to be as resistant as possible.

Even though these protectors look as if they are made of natural leather, no materials of animal origin have been used in the production. The material is quite easy in cleaning and maintenance.

Rubbers on the protectors ensure the proper setting and fitting to forearms. Thanks to additional adjustable velcros, "Shell" Elbow Protectors can be mounted and fitted with the set.

In comparison with "Vectir" Forearm and Elbow Protectors, PRO covers are a bit shorter and better fitted to the forearm's shape, which ensure more comfortable usage.

Price per pair. One Size, Black Only.
4 oz lighter for the pair than the standard forearms.
Smother feel since its the synthetic leather. Same plastic inserts for protection.
Attached with Velcro straps. The velcro in the center is the attachment point if you have elbows.
Slightly shorter as well as you can see from the pictures. The Geko is on top.

I like the Geko arms, more coverage than the DMZ. I'm not a fan of the wrap around elastic and velcro. Overall they are the best I have come to use.

4 of 5 Pretty good but needed to customize April 28, 2020
Reviewer: Wolfheart from Earth  
Nice and tough but doesn't stay tight around the forearm so it slips around.  It's okay though because I have a few solutions in mind to be exactly what I need.

3 of 5 Better than the regular SPES forearm guards... December 15, 2018
Reviewer: Jon from NC United States  
In order to make these more usable, here are the modification that I made:
-removed the last plate on the non-strap side of the protector, in order to get a tighter fit, and the inside plate was/is useless in terms of protection IMHO.
- removed the hooked velcro piece, cut the elastic, and then reattached the velcro to get a tighter wrap, length would vary based on your jacket and arms.
-added strips of hockey tape to the inside of the protector where it comes into contact with the jacket to create more grip and hold the  protector in place since it interferes with the cuff of SPES heavy gloves, which often cause it to rotate and shift out of place.
All-in-all, these are decent forearm guards that could have used a bit more field testing before going into production, because they could have been really good.
