A swashbuckling player needs protection to match modern cricket, who likes to stand out and make a name for themselves. Continuing the look of the Shockwave bat, the new Shockwave 2000 cricket batting pads are a fantastic, international quality leg guard that will stand up to the trials of test matches, one-day games or twenty-twenty matches.
It’s a batting pad with an in your face attitude to match the wearer. Loud. Colourful. Dynamic. The cold blue colouring catches the eye immediately, while the fractured, angular designs evoke the feeling of chaos and destruction that modern batsmen so crave.
For a batting pad that promises to make you stand out, it is imperative that it performs. The Shockwave 2000 leg guard boasts high-density foam bolsters, which are reinforced with cane rods. This ensures high levels of protection, without additional weight. When performing at the highest level of cricket, this combination is crucial to get right.
The protection continues thanks to the full-length high-density foam wing. Against fast bowling, the ball can often sneak past the front of the pad and crash into the batsman’s leg. However, with the wing in place on the side of the batting pad, this issue is consigned to the past.
Twenty-twenty specialists will be delighted to see the gel zone knee with Poly-armour. This will allow batsmen true flexibility of movement at the crease, whether playing forwards, dropping to a knee, or lining up a ramp shot.
Our Vapour foam instep will benefit those batsmen looking to play slightly longer innings, giving batsmen additional comfort and protection around the foot and ankle area. Comfort when batting for long periods is essential, and our Vapour foam instep is a tremendous addition to these batting leg guards to ensure this.
With protection in place, you are ready to take on the cricket world with the Shockwave leg guards. Time for you to make an impact.
