Open cell foam heat bonded together under over a metric tonne (1000kg) of pressure to create a 1-piece pad. This process removes any glue that can harden & shatter over time & reduces the foam de-lamination that can be seen in other pads. The outer layer of foam has a 'skin' or 'crust' reducing the friction that occurs between pad & pitch, aiding sliding & smothering. Internal shape has been modified to fit a longer leg with the 2 straps positioned to fit around the calf & below the knee. Shaped to give the max. legal (under FIH regulations) saving surface from front but also lengthened on the inside of the leg to extended the calf protection & give another increased saving surface.
Inner cell has been shaped to fit the leg but is made from heat sensitive foam which moulds under pressure and will fit the shape of the individual GK within the first couple of weeks of use. Finally the new strapping system has fully replaceable buckles (both male & female parts) & comfort pads to enhance fit & reduce twisting.
