Some hockey players may believe that there is no difference between the shin pads produced by different companies. Well, Bauer has decided to prove these people wrong and develop a pad that provides protection while not restricting mobility. The Bauer Supreme S170 Shin Guards are designed specifically for an anatomical fit and is engineered from the inside out, using specially placed material to provide the player with a comfortable, natural fit. With a closer fit profile, the Supreme allows maximum power out of every movement. With the closer fit also comes the two-strap system, featuring Anchor Strap technology. This system ensures a customized fit and the multi-segmented construction allows mobility while being completely secured to the leg.
For protection, the Supreme S170 shin guard uses a thermoformed, ribbed shin cap to provide elite protection with expert mobility.Inside the injected knee cap, MD foams work to absorb impact and provide a comfortable knee cradle. Vent Armor with HD foam protects the side of the knee cradle, and an adjustable, MD foam calf guard features a PE insert for pro-level coverage and protection. Finally, the Bauer Supreme S170 shin guard comes with a hydrophobic mesh material, which wicks moisture to keep you cool and dry all game. If you are looking for a shin guard that can protect your legs while not hindering them from accelerating, then you are looking at the shin guard for you!
