When purchasing equipment for a young player, it all starts with finding the right fit. If you’re unsure about which equipment fits your child best, or you want an accurate measurement and assessment, visit your local Pure Hockey. Bauer’s NSX line of gear tailors to the young beginner with straightforward equipment that still includes some quality features to keep players comfortable and protected on the ice.
These features start at the top of the shoulder pad with Bauer’s molded shoulder caps and molded sternum. The shoulder caps also include MD foam for some lightweight protection. MD foams are used throughout the NSX shoulder pads for increased impact resistance. These foams are found in the front side panel, spine, and bicep protectors. And not only do these foams provide the protection needed, but they also offers quality comfort that players will appreciate as they begin to spend more time on the ice.
Bauer also includes some easy-to-use features that will help you dress your young player efficiently so he can hit the ice in no time. The first is an oversized head opening with comfort collar. The larger opening allows you to easily place the pads over a young player’s head and onto his shoulders, while the collar provides lasting comfort while he or she is skating. And for the biceps, Bauer includes their EZ sleeve in strap, allowing arms to easily slide through without the need for extra strapping. With these features, players will be comfortable and parents can get them geared up in no time.
For the interior of the shoulder pads, Bauer includes a hydrophobic mesh liner which provides some added comfort and helps the NSX pads to dry in between sessions.
The shoulder pads are a vital part of a young player’s protective equipment, so it is important that both the parents and skaters appreciate the features and benefits of a particular model. Bauer’s NSX shoulder pads provide the right comfort and protection for these young players at a value that parents are looking for.
