With so many different kinds of protective pads out there, it can be hard to separate the contenders from the pretenders.
That’s why it’s so big that Evoshield pads are making waves with professional athletes. From baseball to football and softball, big-time stars are starting to wear some of the most comfortable pads out there.
What makes them so good?
From a CNBC report:
Unlike the rest of the marketplace, which are sold as a one-size-fits-all product, Evoshield uses a proprietary substance that turns a gel into a hardened material and allows consumers to custom fit their protective device.
“The problem with standard plastics and foams that have been used is that they are antiquated,” said Justin Niefer, one of Evoshield’s co-founders. “They are one size fits all and they don’t actually fit to your body and hug it close enough to actually protect it from high impact.”
Whereas your old pads might be bulky or they might not fit 100% correctly, Evoshield’s pads are designed for a custom fit on your body.
And the result, says Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton, is protection without having to sacrifice comfort or range of motion.
“They’re so light, but so durable and so hard,” Hamilton said. “You don’t even know they’re there and it doesn’t affect your play at all.”
