Superior impact management and lighter weight design help reduce fatigue allowing the athlete to play stronger longer
2 in 1 system – inner vest can be used for 7-on-7 or non-contact practice
Carbon fiber composite shell is lightweight, allowing players to move faster
The inner compression vest is made of automotive grade foam which performs 20% better than standard EVA foam and can be used without the exoskeleton for non-contact days. The design holds the padding close to the body for maximum range of motion and is machine washable.
The exoskeleton has a narrow front design and molded to fit the athlete’s body allowing for better range of motion.
The CarbonTek™ exoskeleton uses a military grade buckle system specifically designed for a solid and secure fit with no unnecessary bulk making the shoulder pads perform better, longer, without slowing you down.
The front exoskeleton is narrower and molded to fit the athlete’s body allowing for better range of motion.
The OS Technology Compression Vest comes in +2”, +4” and +6” extended length for full rib protection.
CarbonTek’s technology is one of the biggest gamechangers in protective equipment that I’ve seen in some time. The players absolutely love everything about it: feel more protected, disperses the energy of impact, and can move better with the increased range of motion. We wear it at all positions, and once they put it on, they refuse to wear any other pad again. This pad is ahead of its time!
The CarbonTek™ pads are a revolutionary system that is quickly changing the game of football! It gives players maximum mobility to perform their best while also protecting them to the fullest. I put one of my RBs in it after an injury to his AC joint. Since then, he’s been constantly hit and hasn’t reported any pain or discomfort, proving the technology works and protects the athletes!
The CarbonTek™ staff and rep that I work with are great and help in any way that they can. I am excited to see what is next for CarbonTek™ as they continue to change the game!
As a long time head football coach, I have seen football shoulder pads transform over the years. I am a big believer in staying ahead of the curve and doing anything I can to make sure my players have the best shoulder pads possible. CarbonTek™ has been a great partner in helping take care of my players and going the extra mile to make sure everyone is comfortable with their protective shoulder pad. The OS Technology used in the new CarbonTek™ shoulder pads and other products takes football science to a whole new level. It gives me the confidence to look a recruit in the eye and tell him that I am doing everything I can keep him safe.
The pads were amazing. I separated my shoulder and conveniently your staff came through with the pads the very next day. I was able to have them for the following game and wore them for the next 4 games. I played quarterback but my main duties were running the football so the pads came in handy. I never had a problem the rest of the season and was able to play without a fear of further injury.
The CarbonTek™ Shoulder Pad System has revolutionized the way we protect our student-athletes at Auburn. It is light weight and allows excellent shoulder mobility without giving up shoulder protection. The under padding stays in place and moves with the shoulder giving constant protection without interfering with performance. The pad is anti-microbial and easily laundered. In the event of injury, the system can be left in place and X-rays obtained allowing good anatomical viewing.
I grew up using the average football shoulder pad from the age of 5 until I played in college. I always wondered why there wasn’t a better product. After using the CarbonTek™ shoulder pad I realized that this was the product I was looking for. The light weight of the pad that forms to your body and allows you to move fluidly without restriction is what makes this product second to none.
The CarbonTek™ shoulder pad system provided excellent protection to our student-athletes this past season, and proved to be efficient in mobility and force absorption with our injured athletes. The two-part system was both comfortable and flexible and did not impede our athlete’s performance.
The CarbonTek™ pad is the best out there. I felt like I wasn’t wearing anything because it’s form fitting and really lightweight. But it didn’t keep me from feeling protected as I was able to take many punishing hits.
