This Legguards model took 18 months to develop.

OBO refined and tested the concept and detailed designs using goalkeepers from Holland, Germany, United States, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. 

The underlying rationale for the legguards design stems from the modern games, playing trends, new rules, and resulting playing requirements that the goalkeeper is very mobile.

Goalkeepers of the future will need to be much more agile and versatile in the use of their feet. In fact, the best goalkeepers will almost become an extra defender.

The legguards are shaped to give excellent rebound control from almost any angle.

The ball control is achieved by a design centred around the natural movement of the human body and the use of carefully selected foams. Because the design allows the body to move naturally, more power and controlled rebound are achieved.

The LEFT and RIGHT legguard are not the same because goalkeepers don't have the same requirements for each leg. The left leg is wider and is angled differently to maximise width while minimising the chance of a ball skidding past the outside edge of the legguard and into the goal.

At a senior Goal Keepers Clinic at the famous Southgate Club in England, fully kitted goalkeepers were required to run through cones. When timed, the results were astounding. The design of the OBO LegGuards and Kickers enabled the OBO goalies to cover the distance in 30 seconds, while goalies equipped with other brands repeatedly took over 45 seconds.
