Sleek lightweight with a modern metallic look, the highly engineered multi-layers of woven fabric in Curv are designed to absorb most of the kinetic energy to dissipate the impact, revolutionizing the way players are protected while pushing performance to the limits.
Level 1 Curv is used in the arch, epaulets and shoulder caps to disperse any impact away from the player thru its multi-layers of fabric.
Whenever lightweight design, stiffness and strength, fatigue resistance and energy absorption are required Tepex is the material of choice.
Level 2 Tepex is used in the sub-arch of the pad to act as a cantilever to push energy back against the impact. Also with its stiffness it helps keep the pad in shape to best fit the player for comfort, mobility and keeping the pad low profile.
Honeycomb TPU is a thermoplastic polyurethane core that is welded into multiple honeycomb cells. This design disperses energy and does not break down like traditional foams.
Level 3 Honeycomb is used above the sub-arch to help disperse energy and transfer the energy across the sub-arch making the energy travel over a greater distance.
Level 4 Honeycomb is used here again below the sub-arch in the top of the lining. It is placed in strategic locations across the shoulder to absorb and disperse the remaining energy across the entire shoulder to minimize any remaining energy.
Level 5 Air management adjustable and removable clavicle pad provide the player with extra comfort and giving the final attack on energy by absorbing and dispersing any remaining energy.
