When purchasing equipment for a young player, it all starts with finding the right fit. Equipment that fits correctly will keep skaters protected and comfortable as they begin to skate more.

Bauer enhances the fit of the NSX shin pad with an anatomically molded shin cap and a deep anatomically fitting knee cap. This construction helps give a personalized feel to the shin guard, and will feel like an extension of the player’s leg thanks to this secure and well-fitting design. Bauer also includes their Y-shape, EZ fit lock strap to improve the overall fit. This strapping system helps to secure the knee and calf areas to ensure the shin guard stays in place, keeping the protection where it needs to be throughout games and practices.
For the protective features of the NSX shin guard, Bauer includes a hard shell and MD foams in the calf. the MD foam helps to keep the pads lightweight, while also providing extra impact resistance to this key area.
Inside the shin guards, a comfort liner provides an improved feel in the knee pocket, while a hydrophobic mesh liner is used throughout the pads to provide added comfort and to help dry the NSX shin guards faster in between skating sessions.
With a quality fit and some good features from Bauer at a low price point, the NSX shin guards are a great option for youth-level beginners.
