The DD style shoulder pad, in the Legacy Series is designed as a multi-position pad beginning with Running Backs, Defensive Backs, Tight Ends, Linebackers as well as Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers. The DD is designed as a FLAT, low profile pad, with belt's & buckles. The DD's lightweight, and streamlined design, makes it the perfect for players that want solid protection and greater range of motion. With the DD's front, that give the player the flexibility they need to make the big plays. The Air-Management system of open cell foam, soft removable channels, streamlined plastic shell along with 1" belts and buckles, creates the FLAT PAD Design that helps disperse the energy of contact collisions.
The protective padding (cushion) of the shoulder pad is made of open cell foam. Within the foam are thousands of tiny air cells. By adhering the outer fabric to the foam, a sealed environment is created trapping the air inside of the cushion. When an outside force is exerted on to the shoulder pad shell (load spreader), the force causes the shell to push on the cushion, forcing the air to move within the cells of the foam out 360 degrees, thereby lessening the blow from being felt straight in to the point of impact. There is a much wider area of dispersion, resulting in less trauma to the body.
All LP pads are made with Charcoal plastic, Black cushions, Silver Bias and removable channel system.
