The Bauer Nexus Elevate shin pads are a Source for Sports exclusive model based on the Nexus N7000 shin pads which feature upgrades through the pad to add value and provide a better functioning product. The Elevate features a traditional feel and volume fit for players looking for a classic construction with controlled movement. The width of the knee cap and shin shell has been improved on to provide a better wrap around the leg as well a more natural skating stride when playing. The shin cap is vented for improved airflow and has an ergonomic shape made in a thermoformed construction.
The main liner of the Elevate has been upgraded to that from the N9000 and offers added MD foam in a multi segmented design to improve protection and add comfort. The liner is also fully removable for easy washing and cleaning. The calf guard and thigh protection features MD foam for good energy dispersal and protection against slashes and impacts.
The Elevate is upgraded again to feature the strapping system from the N9000 and fastens with a 2-strap system that features an anchor strap around the calf guard for a better lock on the leg and an elastic strap around the back of the knee. The shin pad is lined with a Thermo Max liner to keep you cool and dry while playing by wicking moisture away from your body and base layer.
Source for Sports exclusive upgrades include a fully removable padded Thermo Max liner and a two-strap fastening system with anchor strap around the calf guard.
