# Lightweight Airprene Body - The lightweight airprene body is pre-shaped to conform to the natural bend of the elbow allowing the pad to provide ultimate comfort and flexibility.
# Dye microinjection logos - Micro injection logos complete the design in typical DYE fashion.
# Cup Shaped EVA Foam Elbow Pad - The cup-shaped elbow pad wraps around your elbow for a more custom fit. This goes beyond the pre-shaped fit of the airprene section. The new cup-shaped design was developed to provide you with the most comfortable fit possible.
# Hollowed EVA Forearm Padding - This new style of foam wraps all the way around, covering the inner arm and providing more protection. The hollowed chambers of this new foam allow more air circulation around the forearm by keeping areas of the pad away from the skin, giving the pad a lighter feel.
# Vent Ports - The new vent ports and 4-way stretch air-mesh offer optimal air flow to your forearms in conjunction with the hollowed EVA foam for the maximum amount of air circulation of any elbow pad available.
# Gel Shorts - The gel inserts are highly impact resistant and help absorb brute force created from intense slides and dives.
# Adjustable Strap - The adjustable strap allows you to tighten the elbow pad to your liking and helps keep the pad in place.
# Integrated Slider Glove - The new integrated Slider Glove acts as a glove without the extra hindrance of covering your fingers. This new comfortable design provides reinforced palm protection to help against abrasive slides, while the back of the Slider Glove features neoprene compression for added protection to the back of the hand. The placement of the Slider Glove helps to prevent the elbow pad from sliding up your arm and offers unrestricted movement allowing you to have maximum control and feel of your marker.
# Elastic Finger Loop - The elastic finger loop is an optional way to secure the Slider Glove, keeping the pad in place, but without interfering with finger movement.

Thermal formed pads are excellent and very impact absorbent. They are well vented and comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I am an athletic front player and I feel very safe with these pads on. I donít even think twice about getting bumped up with these on. The pads themselves are tough, flexible and again very impact absorbent. I feel they are better than other pads because a they have flexion points in their designed making it move with you well as you play.
The NXE pads are nice but are clunky and not very well anatomically designed.
The PE pads are nice but are somewhat stiff. Their shape is very nice. The foam plates were not covered or protected so I assume they would get torn up if you wear your pads on the outside.
The DYE pads are better than these 2 others in both of these aspects. The fit snug, do not move from their place, and are robust.
Con: A little pricy but cheaper than an emergency room visit, and more comfortable than having sliding raspberries on your elbow. I recommend them highly.
