The Bauer Nexus Classic shoulder pads are the perfect shoulder pad for any recreational player or beginning skater. They are very lightweight but still manage to cover and protect all key areas. They feature mid-density foam coverage for the kidneys, stomach, chest, and biceps, while adding an additional PE plastic insert on the spine. We at Pure Hockey have added a few minor features to make this a Pure Hockey Exclusive! The old-school, tie-up chest piece adds a little style to the pad and the covered shoulder caps are safer you and your competition!
