The XV HD QB|WR pad offers an attached back plate and smaller arch cut to reduce the plastic that gets in your way. The arch cut gives you maximum range of motion and versatility. Designed for Quarterback and Wide Receiver positions. The XV HD is the shoulder pad against which all high school shoulder pads are measured. The XV HD has many of the same features as our pro-level shoulder pads and was upgraded this season with higher-density EVA foam for greater impact absorption and durability. The moisture and heat management system of the XV HD allows airflow to and from the body allowing the skin to dry and the body to continue its natural cooling action.

The XV HD pad has many of the same features as our pro-level pads: high density EVA foam for greater impact absorption and durability, ventilated arch has raised corrugations and 7mm vent holes, and pre-drilled holes for accessory attachment. This pad has a clavicle channel system to help with impact specifically around the AC joint. The pad is designed to be low profile for improved mobility and is the lightest varsity shoulder pad we can build while maintaining pro-level standards.

The OL/DL pad has an exclusive non-epaulet design available only from Schutt Sports. The elimination of the epaulet gives your opponent nothing to grab on to.

With pro-level features and a design made for high school players, the Schutt XV HD Adult Football Shoulder Pads - All Purpose are the latest in Schutt's popular XV line. A newly-designed, high-performance arch minimizes the weight and still delivers the same impact zone protection. The pads include a higher density EVA foam that allows heat and sweat to escape, keeping your body cool and allowing you to perform at a high level. The epaulets and caps are positioned and sized to eliminate grab points and allow a maximum range of motion. The clavicle channel system protects your shoulders and absorbs impact around the AC joint.

Recommended for linebackers, fullbacks, tight ends and lineman, these pads are ideal for those who do the dirty work on both sides of the ball. They feature a longer cut to accommodate various positions on the field, while providing maximum coverage and comfort.

The XV HD Skill gives you a deep cut for a wide range of motion while still maintaining a long cut to give you the protection you need. Designed for Running Back, Tight End, Safety and Defensive Back positions. The XV HD is the shoulder pad against which all high school shoulder pads are measured.
