The Bauer Nexus 2N Shoulder Pad was built for the player looking for maximum protection and coverage without sacrificing weight or mobility. Compared to Supreme and Vapor, the Nexus is the bulkier of the bunch, making it a good choice for physical players who are consistently blocking shots or battling on the boards.
Bauer brought over advanced IX-Foam Technology from their helmet division to bolster the shoulder caps. IX reinforces the molded PE shoulder caps for elite impact protection, which also helped slim down the overall cap profile this year for a better out-of-the-box fit. MDP Technology, the 2N's unique multi-density foam layering system, can be found on the spine and the sternum to deliver next-level protection for the most vital part of the shoulder pad.
Internally, the Nexus 2N boasts a ThermoMax microfiber liner that manages moisture by rapidly wicking it away so it can evaporate. New to the Nexus is the Sanitized treatment process that keeps the pad smelling fresher for longer, since it prevents odor-causing bacteria from forming.
