Bauer Vapor 1X Junior Hockey Shin Guards
Shin pads take a beating! They're the thankless heroes in the realm of hockey gear, and it's about time they got some love. Thankfully, Bauer has heard the call and seriously upgraded their 1X shin pads. Replacing the majority of the once plastic shell with their Curv composite technology, these pads have gotten feather light and that much more protective. The knee cap is a regularly injected molded piece and features ample foam inserts before tapering down into the composite powered shin guard. The calf wrap features familiar AEROLITE Technology that also makes its way up into the thigh protector. AEROLITE is used to ensure the components are plenty protective without adding excess weight Finally, the liner is powered by 37.5 fabric amplified by Bauer's new Tech Mesh process where a system of miniature supports separate the layers of fabric creating a channel for airflow to move through and dissipate the moisture accordingly.
