The Bauer Nexus 8000 Hockey Shoulder Pads are the premier model in the Nexus Line, offering a pro-level of protection and mobility. Bauer used EPP Foams, which are also seen in high-end hockey helmets, on key areas of this pad because of the excellent protective and lightweight properties they have to offer.
Not only does the Nexus 8000 feature outstanding protection provided by EPP and other high-density foams, it is also very mobile. The Free-Flex two-piece bicep guard provides player with a sense of full mobility without feeling restrained by the pad. The three-piece front and rear panels also help this cause, allowing each piece to move independently from one another.
Internally, Bauer integrated the new 37.5™ Technology that lets a player's body expend more energy on the game rather than regulating body temperature. This is achieved through tiny cells in the liner that not only evaporate sweat but free the previously trapped hot air inside of the pad.
