The Bauer Supreme line is a widely popular and successful protective line. Known for its supreme coverage of the body, the supreme line helps set the pace for protection as well as ventilation and strap lock system. The Supreme 190 Shoulder Pads offer outstanding features and benefits.
Let’s start with protection. The shoulder cap is constructed from thermoformed cap with PU foam to help absorb the blow to make it easier on your shoulder. The sternum has PORON, XRD, and PE inserts with Vent Armor foam. MD foam and Vent Armor foam make up the spinal protection, as well as front side panels, and back kidney panels. The bicep guard has an adjustable free flex construction to help maximize protection but does not restrict movement making shooting, passing, and dangling that much easier. Some shoulder pads do not protection your stomach which could lead to some painful blocked shots or slashes. However the Supreme 190 Shoulder Pads include a belly pad which is assembled with removable MD foam.
The base body uses patented free flex chest construction to help deflect objects off instead of absorbing the hit or shot. The 190’s use an anatomical overall fit and a hook and loop closure arm strap. Lastly, the liner uses Thermo Max to provide a great vented system and enhanced comfort.
The Supreme 190 Shoulder Pads are one model down from the MX3 making them not as advanced but they still offer great protection and features for your dollar.
