D3O Protective HYBRID Sweatbands
We are delighted to have teamed up with D30 and sport technology company TeamTek to bring to market these field player and GK protective wristbands. The simple HYBRID unit features a 5mm D3O protective plate encased in a simple cotton sweatband. The PRO unit (coming soon) has the same D3O protection with an additional plastic plate.
D3O states on it's website "the world's best impact protection for ..." It is used in protective items in sport, defence, industry, electronics and motor racing, taking advantage of it's incredible energy absorbing characteristics.
Available as single units or in pairs ... For field players we would recommend wearing the sweatbands with the protection on the back of the left wrist and the front of the right wrist, this gives the best protection given normal playing characteristics. With the PRO items for keepers we would recommend wearing the protection on the front of both wrists.
The PRO sweatbands are perfect for keepers who like to wear limited arm protection but recognise that even with the fastest reactions a ball sometimes misses the bottom of the glove and impacts the wrist. The 'bands also reduce the moisture / sweat running down the arms and into the gloves themselves.
