New players, take note: the Tacks 1052 Elbow Pads will be just the thing you need to break into the sport of hockey without breaking the bank. Joint discharge PE caps disperse the force of impact away from the elbows, protecting these crucial joints. An extended floating bicep is comfortable and offers a recreational level of protection. An overlapping lock strap attachment is firm and offers a comfortable fit. These elbow pads are great for players just starting out with the sport.
