XP1000 Shoulder Pads
In any game of rugby, going into contact is a guarantee and in order to help defend the vital parts of the body and lower the risk of injury, you need a product designed by the number one professional body armour producer in the world.
The XP1000 Body Armour provides 12 pads across the arms, chest and back to provide coverage across the bicep, sternum, kidneys, ribs as well as a large back padding for protection when tackling or being tackled.
When taking out the opposition, players must feel like they can operate their body in the full range of motions without any restrictions that would otherwise compromise performance. The XP1000 has a 3D moulded system providing ultimate flexibility and coverage acting like a second skin, whilst maintaining impact absorption.
When on the move for 80 minutes, it is inevitable that moisture will build up under clothing. Adding an extra layer may seem to increase this however the XP1000 has a 4 way stretch that enhances the range of movements designed to accelerate the pull of moisture away from the skins surface. The body is then kept dry and the chill effect is eliminated.
The compression X1 fabric is a high performance compression fabric to support the muscles and improve circulation to further enhance performance on the pitch. Along with this, the fastwick dry insert fabric gives players a greater breathability.
The XP1000 Body Armour is available in sizes S-2XL so if you are looking for defence like no other, the XP1000 is for you.
