Pure Hockey Says: The Nexus 1000 shoulder pad combines Bauer`s history of great protective equipment and used new player recommended innovation to create the NEXUS line. The Lightweight EPP Foam with the sternum protection insert for added chest protection. Anatomically molded shoulder caps so the pads sit correctly on top of the shoulders. The multi panel chest design allows for mobility while still maintaining great impact dispersion properties with the EPP foam inserts. The adjustable free flex bicep guards are segmented to allow the arm to move freely from the padding. Players asked and Bauer used that feedback to create the revolutionary new NEXUS line.
