The Reebok 11K hockey elbow pads are the top of the line elbow pad from Reebok this year. More players in the NHL wear Reebok designed elbow pads over any other. With the introduction of the 11k, I don't think that statistic will change anytime soon. For 2011 Reebok has added the ZigTech technology to the liner. Zig fibers increase circulation, increase blood oxygen levels, and promote muscle recovery. The 11k provides pro level protection with the JDP Bumper cap, and pro level comfort with the Locksleeve.
The 11K use a 2-piece design system. One piece for the forearm/elbow and the other piece to protect the bicep. This pad features a plastic base with foams on both sides for maximum protection and comfort. Reebok is calling the elbow cap the JDP® with bumper. The bumper is an EVA foam on the outside to offer additional protection to you and other players on the rink. This pad features plastic reinforcements in the forearm guard and bicep guard to offer pro level of protection.
The 11K features a 3-piece strap system. At the top there is a bicep strap that is about 1.5" securing the bicep guard to the arm. The core strap is the Arm Sleeve. This strap is a "V" shape that wraps the arm under the forearm guard locking the pad in place. The Arm Sleeve has a soft felt like exterior offering superior comfort. The last strap Reebok calls the lock strap that wraps over the forearm guard ensuring no pad movement during play.
Reebok has used The ZigTech series liner in the 11k elbow pad. This liner features key Celliant fibers which have been clinically proven to enhance oxygen levels. This translates to better circulation and more energy so you can take your game to the next level.

Comments: Hands down the most comfortable elbow pads I've ever worn! They offer great protection, and are really light weight. I tried elbow pads from CCM & Easton before finding these, and the difference is night and day. Cannot recommend these enough!!

Comments: Reebok is the #1 elbow pad and shin guard supplier to NHL players for a reason. Coming from a JOFA elbow pads with the velcro failing, these pads are a 100% improvement. I take alot of slapshots at stick&puck and the lockstrap on these bad boys hold the pads in place like super glue. They sit really deep in the elbow and offer great protection midway down your forearm as well as midway up your bicep. Perfect Pads!

Comments: I can see why they are a pro favorite. When I first put them on, they were a little tight (a problem I have with my forearms), but after playing in them today, they've really loosened up, and feel great. No frills strapping system. I will say, with most of these new fabrics and materials used, one should wear a hockey shirt with "nipple grip" elbows, to keep them in place. Typical core undershirts are a little "slippery" around the elbow areas. 5 out of 5 stars.

Comments: The first time I wore the Reebok 11K elbow pads, I could immediately tell why they're a favorite of the pros. It's amazing how a pad that provides such a high level of protection is also so comfortable. Let's start with the strapping system. Three straps absolutely lock the pad in place. I've worn these for four or five games now and they do not move! It is so awesome to put the pads on and forget about them. If you do fall or make contact with another player, the impact just disperses and deflects. You'll barely feel anything. Also, I love how 'deep' your elbow locks in to the center of the pad. Feels so secure and protected. At first, the pads almost feel too tight. Just a matter of getting used to it. Once you do, you'll never go back. The mobility is amazing too. I never feel like I'm constricted from moving at all. If anything, the feeling of security increases my confidence and increases mobility. Finally, I have to comment on the 'zigtech liner'. When I read that it increases blood flow and oxygen levels, I just rolled my eyes and thought, 'That's just marketing hype.'
