Hockey is a rough game, and that's part of the reason we love it so much! However, it's still good to keep yourself safe when bodies are colliding at the rapid speeds of the sport, and Easton has worked hard to provide a top-tier set of shoulder pads that can take the brunt of any hit. The Stealth CX shoulder pads are made to withstand just about anything, so let's see what makes this armor as strong as it is!
The Stealth CX's feature Dual Shox EPP and EVA layered foams in the shoulder caps to offer exceptional energy dispersal. These two layers of foam are fused together, resulting in an incredibly strong AND incredibly light pad that will keep you playing longer and faster. The torso padding of the CX is also designed to provide shock absorption with less to weigh you down. Easton utilizes their Hyperlite foam to ensure you will be covered when pucks and spearing shaft ends come your way. The Hyperlite foam is also resistant to tears and abrasions, keeping this unit protective and practical for as many uses as you can throw at it.
The Stealth CX shoulder pads also include a feature being seen on other high-end shoulder pads. The sternum and spine plates are made of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) to offer a hard surface to cover the ciritcal areas of your body. This armor is made to withstand impacts by absorbing and dispersing energy.
Sometimes the level protection the CX offers can lead to the issue of lost comfort and mobility. However, Easton has constructed a design that is designed to fit naturally, move with your body and be exceptionally lightweight. The bicep guards have a two-piece design to allow natural arm movement. The inner liner is designed with Bio-Dri fabric to keep the unit light and comfortable. There are even vents placed strategically throughout the unit to keep air moving through, keeping you dry and comfortable as well as reducing the weight of the pads. The caps are made to be low profile, presenting opposing players with less area to hit.
Overall, if you're looking for truly pro-level protection and performance, Easton has you covered. The Stealth CX are a tremendous option for any player seaking the best equipment to suit their game!
