The Bauer Supreme S170 chest & arm protector is based off of a very popular design from years past (the Supreme One95), but it features design adjustments to meet the requirements of the beginning to intermediate level goaltender.
For starters, the S170 features larger, wide, segmented HD foam shoulder floaters that give the goalie a wide shoulder profile in the net. Additional shoulder caps sit below the main floaters for added protection. Between the shoulder floaters sits a HD foam reinforced sternum protector to provide extra protection to this sensitive area.
The belly padding consists of HD foam blockers which are segmented near the waist to allow the goalie to bend forward without pushing the entire unit up towards the neck. The foam blocks are also angled so that the unit can flex naturally with the goalie's waist and body. The belly padding also features Bauer's popular Adjustable Belly System (ABS) - removeable pad extensions that can be customized to lengthen the belly padding by up to 3 inches.
The arm construction is made using pre-molded HD foams for superior impact protection. The arm padding is tapered to fit nicely inside the goalie gloves, and plastic / soft foam liner elbow caps provide excellent protection. The arm are adjustable in length to allow the goalie go customize the fit based on his / her needs.
