The Bauer Nexus protective lineup has been built off a classic fit platform to provide a volume fit for ultimate coverage with controlled movement. The Nexus 1N shoulder pads, the top tiered model in this protective line, features Seven+ Technology, a technology tested and proven in some of Bauer’s current helmets. This along with other high quality foams and plastics take the 1N shoulder pads to new heights in pro level protection.
Seven+ Technology is a molded foam specializing in multiple impact management. This foam is able to withstand repeated impacts of both high and low energies and still hold its natural shape significantly better than traditional foam constructions. Being Bauer’s ultimate line of protection, the Nexus 1N features this Seven+ Technology in the shoulder caps and sternum guard visibly seen in its orange color, this is what makes these shoulder pads so protective, whether it’s getting hit or dishing them out.
The chest construction is made multi-segmented to enhance the overall mobility. For additional protection throughout the entire pad, HD foams can be found safe guarding the front side panels, spine guard, kidney panels, and the arch support covering the collar bones. The bicep guards feature a 2-piece free flex construction made from a molded thermoformed component to promote more mobility in the arms while still maintaining that ultimate coverage.
Lastly, the 1N is lined with Bauer’s patented 37.5 Technology. This is a revolutionary liner deemed as “hockey’s fastest drying fabric” made to evaporate sweat which keeps players dry and cool.
