When aero carefully analysed the ergonomics of batting... especially sprinting, the body position when taking stance, playing forward and back foot shots —we identified many problems with old style thigh pads. They didn't fit, they didn't integrate and in some cases they just didn't protect at all. We noticed that the hip was often exposed from playing pull shots, leg glances, back foot defence and even sweep shots. Most players didn't have both thighs protected, especially the youth who play on bouncy artificial wickets. But of most concern.. .they were uncomfortable, inhibited running, never stayed in place and were constantly in need of re-adjustment (sometimes every over). In many cases our youth cricketers just did not bother with any protection. And then there's... the evil smell!
The outcome of an intensive 3 year development and 5 years of player feedback is aero's Lower Body Protector which we call StrippersTM. They deliver the key performance elements of...better protection, better comfort, better speed and better durability for all batsmen — in a unique and balanced way. slots StrippersTM use the best materials —3D moulded high impact plastics, multiple closed-cell foam combinations and user friendly, antibacterial polyester mesh.
The Lower Body Protector is designed to integrate with aero's Leg Protectors 1 in a completely natural way.. .making the whole combination up to 9% faster between the wickets.. .
you'll run as though you're not wearing thigh guards at all.
