A lightweight design with an economical price that still offers the strength and protection of AiR Flex technology, including raised corrugations. Arch features 7mm vapor holes, maximizing ventilation and air flow next the body. It's treated with AEGIS Anti-Microbial and a 3-point belt system.
Extended Front Cushion
The arch has an extended cut in both the front and back – for extra protection for young bones. The Y Flex is the only youth shoulder pad to offer this extra protection as standard item. The extended cuts protect the sternum, ribs and back.
Premium Youth Pad AiR Flex Appearance
The Y Flex is a dramatic entry level shoulder pad for the youth player. The impact channels on the padding mimic the look of the AiR Flex. Just like the AiR Flex, the Y Flex also has 7mm vent holes throughout the arch. No other shoulder pad in this category offers the features that are standard on the Y Flex.
The Y Flex features a two-layer padding system that features EVA impact foam for maximum protection, plus a layer of comfort foam to help with the fit and comfort of the pad. The moisture-wicking Aero-Dry spacer fabric helps move sweat and heat away from the body.
This product is treated with AEGIS Microbe Shield, and antimicrobial, which acts to resist the development of bacterial odors in our product.
3-Point Elastic Strap
Young hands sometimes struggle with belts, so the Mid Flex features a 3 point attachment system that utilizes elastic straps.

Does what it should do as far as pads go. price is right. My kids used these playing WR/TE/and RB If your kids are in football though and playing these positions... I would highly recommend and even perhaps insist that one purchase the additional back plate available for around 15 bucks...and/or the rib protector kit. it protects your kids back from injury from "cheap illegal shots in the back with the (NOT INCLUDED) back plate. We found this out the hard way. But get the back plate it will save you headaches and tears and agony from your kid having to nurse a bruised back and possibly miss games sitting on the sideline. Two kids missed the season on our team from week 2 because they did not have the extra back plate protector and got clipped in their backs. One kid suffered a ruptured disk and was going to have to have surgery. so get the back plate and you wont be sorry you did when your kid comes up and thanks you.... (laughing) that he was properly protected and that "big hit" really didn't hurt so bad. I modified one rib protector for my 14 year old because he was so tall the small back plate(remember this is not included in the pad package you have to buy it extra)did not give him proper coverage over his back... so we drilled out a spot on the rib-cage protector and it worked fine for C.Y.A. <=cover your a@@! See a video review and fit on kids on youtube under schmeggmann...since Azon is such a pain in the A to upload videos to this is easier to do it this way.
