The Easton Synergy EQ50 shin guard is the top of the EQ line shin guard from Easton. The EQ50 is for the player who constantly is grinding into the boards and takes/gives some beatings. Easton has stepped the EQ series up by introducing a new strap system and added better impact padding.
The EQ strap system is improved for 2011. Easton is using a solid 4" neoprene strap for the calf. This strap is both comfortable and provides a wide range of fits for different calf sizes. The EQ50 features a new soft neoprene pad located on the strap below the knee. This is one of the first shin guards I have seen with this bonus pad. This means no more annoying calf rash!
Easton has introduced, HEX-FOAM a new type of material to the EQ50 protective line to help further increase protection and performance. HEX-FOAM is a lightweight molded foam where each pad helps disperse impact and offers improved ventilation.
- Wider kneecap allows the knee to sit deeper into the pad providing additional protection to the outside of the knee
- HEX-FOAM offers increased protection with less weight and improved air circulation
- Sling Tec™ cradles and supports the shin a comfortable distance away from the outer shell of the pad. This space between the shin and shell allow impacts to be dispersed before reaching the shin.
- The Sling Tec design has been re-engineered on the Easton EQ line to offer improved durability and allow the leg to sit deeper in the shin shell
- Ribbed shin design to reduce direct impacts
- HDPE Calf Wrap to provide advanced protection to the back of the leg
- Extra padding located on knee joint (XJP)
- Dry Flow™ shin liner with Griptec- Easton's unique system that releases moisture and excess heat created during play
- Griptec material keeps the shin pad in the right place on your shin
- InMotion Fit technology offers an improved fit to keep the pad in place and move with the body throughout the game
- Ergonomic shin allows for shin and knee to sit deeper and offer a more comfortable fit
- Kneecap provides greater lateral support while locking the knee into proper position
- Tapeline just below the knee allowing the tape to rest evenly resulting in secure fit
- Contoured design keeps the pad resting close to the leg giving a less "bulky" feeling
- Two straps:
- Upper strap under the knee with neoprene pad
- Elastic strap over the calf wrap with comfort pad
- Air vents in the shin for increased air circulation
- Knee Lock provides a deep and stable fit
- Level of Play: Advanced to Pro level of play
