The QuickLite lineup is all about optimal mobility and the QuickLite QLT 290 elbow pads definitely delivers with the introduction of VentShield Technology. VentShield is the hard perforated plastic found protecting the bicep, it’s tough and incredibly lightweight making the 290 elbow pads take breathability, protection, and optimized weight to the next level.
To provide excellent mobility, the 290’s were designed as a 3-piece construction made with DryFoam Technology which is a closed cell foam that absorbs less sweat to allow the elbow pads to remain lightweight and comfortable throughout the game. The elbow cap is the fan favorite JDP design that provides better shock absorption against both hard and soft impacts. Both the bicep guard and forearm guard are floating which provides a lot of flexibility. For extra protection in the forearm CCM included a segmented molded high density foam overlay which provides a really good wrap and lightweight protection.
The liner is made with a moisture wicking premium mesh which is very soft and cushioned so your arm will be dryer and more comfortable. For the strapping system CCM uses a 3-piece design, the bicep strap is an elastic strap, the mid strap is lycra, and the forearm strap is a locking nylon strap that gives great security.
