The Bauer Supreme 2S Elbow Pads are ideal for hockey players who want affordable, elite-level protection. The 2S Elbow Pads have upgraded protection in a few key areas. The first being the elbow doughnut, which has IX Foam protection. IX Foam is very comfortable and absorbs big impact energy before it reaches the elbow joint. Surrounding the forearm is Vent Armor Foam and an injected PE mold. They increase protection to high velocity impacts like blocked shots or slashes without sacrificing weight. The entire forearm piece is anatomically constructed to maintain a contouring, low profile fit.
Bauer is introducing their AMP (Active Motion Protection) to give players more mobility, which is achieved by the split forearm cap. By adding a hinge below the elbow, the protection stays contoured and close fitting to the body as well. Up top, the bicep guard is attached to the body via two elastic nylon straps for even better mobility while protecting the player with thick, medium-density foam and closed-cell foam. Between the foams are injected plastic inserts to boost impact protection from sticks and pucks.
The 2S Elbow Pads have a three-piece strapping system including a Y-shaped anchor strap which prevents pinching of the skin and keeping the elbow from slipping. The other two elastic Velcro straps help to finish locking down the arm and to keep protection snug and secure. Internally is Bauer's Thermo Max+ Liner that is anti-microbial, and does a great job of managing sweat and moisture.
