The all new Epoch Integra shoulder pads incorporate an amazing new carbon fiber technology that is flexible and soft yet as strong as steel. We loved the soft, supple feel of these pads. The freedom of movement was amazing. This could easily become a go to for elite level collegiate and high school middies and D poles who want beefed up sternum players but complete range of motion. The Super wide straps and huge Velcro placement areas really make it easy to situate this pad exactly how you want it. Epoch opened up the neck on this pad so that it will not ride up on you when torquing into a shot or streaking down the field during a clear. The bicep pads are removable or course and we really really like the simplistic and efficient style that Epoch brought to these pads.
