The Bauer NSX Shin Guard was built for the rec-level or new-to-hockey player that wants higher-end protection at a more affordable price. Unlike some of the competition, the NSX strategically boasts plastic reinforcement in the calf guard, one of the most commonly impacted areas on the leg.
Internally, Bauer used comfortable and durable medium-density foams topped with hydrophobic mesh. The center portion is removable so players can throw it in the wash or simply take it out after a game for quicker drying. The strapping system is straightforward and secure, utilizing a 2" elastic lower strap and a 1" elastic upper strap.
