The Warrior Alpha QX5 Shoulder Pads are the starting point in the Alpha lineup. These pads provide solid protection and mobility for recreational players. The front and back panels are made of mid-density foams for impact absorption and have hard molded plastic (PE) inserts in the sternum, spine and clavicle areas. The QX5s also have PE inserts in the shoulder caps and bicep guards for extra impact dispersion. The QX5s are secured by two traditional elastic velcro stomach straps.
