Product Information

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.

The clavicle channel system protects your shoulders and absorbs impact around the AC joint.
