The Bauer Nexus 8000 Hockey Shin Guards are the premier model in the Nexus Line. The 8000 shin guard uses advanced EPP Foams throughout the bulk of it's construction due to this foams lightweight and protective properties.
The Nexus 8000's offer a classic fit compared to the rest of the Bauer Vapor and Supreme shin guards. A majority of the protection is made of an EPP Foam that is also found in high-end hockey helmets. This EPP Foam is very protective and is also one of the lightest foams on the market. To further the level of protection, Bauer included thick poly inserts on the calf wrap and dome protection pieces.
Internally, the Nexus 8000 shin pad has a fully removable liner that is made up of Bauer's new 37.5™ Technology. 37.5™ helps to regulate a player's body temperature by not only evaporating body sweat but more importantly releasing trapped heat that most pads would keep in.
