The Shotblocker XT Shorty is designed for players who wear their skate tongue inside the shin pad. This featherweight, durable, energy absorbing guard offers proven protection for the top of the foot where players are vulnerable to be injured by pucks and stick contact. The Shotblocker XT Shorty is engineered for performance, convenience and comfort. The middle hinge allows for full movement of the foot while skating so the player doesn’t even know it’s there.
- Protects the front of the foot.
- A featherlight 50 grams.
- Convenient fold-and-fasten system.
- One size.
- One Pair of Shot Blocker XT Shorty.
The patent pending Shot Blocker XT Shorty offers what all other products on the market are missing: The ability to skate as though nothing additional has been added to the skate. Weighing only 50 grams per skate, players can play to their full potential and not worry about noticing anything different about their skates. The middle hinge allows for full movement when skating and the material, a high impact modified engineered resin which is overmolded with an energy absorbing thermal polymer means the Shot Blocker XT Shorty can even outlast the skates themselves.
- Whether you want total skate protection or selected skate protection, there is finally an answer to the significant increase of foot injuries.
- The Shot Blockers skate protection is like nothing else on the market and has been approved for use in the NHL by the director of hockey operations for the NHL.
- Made of a polypropylene-graphite composite that has been used for many years to make orthotics.
- The aim of the Shot Blocker is to protect your feet without affecting performance.
- The Shot Blocker XT Shorty, XT, XT Lite and XT Pro offer a solution for every level of player and is recommended for anyone over the age of twelve.
- The unique hinge design of the Shot Blocker XT Shorty tongue protects the top of the foot and front of the ankle without the player or observer noticing it’s there.
- With the trend of foot injuries in the NHL increasing significantly in the past 2-3 years, this product was developed to be light weight, while having an ultra shock resistant foot/ankle guard system that can be fitted to any skate without affecting the performance of the athlete.
