When one thinks protection, the mind generally wonders between heavy-duty, uncomfortable yet strong armor. What if there was a product as effective but less strenuous?
Adidas have identified this gap with their super light and comfortable Adidas CX11 Batting Pads. With its high density foam blocks it gives you maximum protection yet light enough to allow you to turn for the tricky second. Because they are so light and comfortable it is a perfect match for a young cricketer but also for the professional.
This piece of batting equipment is perfect for any sort of stance. Kevin Pietersen is one of the most prolific run scorers in the game and has a very obvious wide stance. He is able to stand this way due to the Adidas CX11 Batting Pads. With an extra lip to cover up the calf, batsmen such as Pietersen have the ability to face square leg yet play with confidence.
When Mitchell Johnson was firing them in at over 145kph these giants were able to withstand it all.
It is blended in beautifully with the traditional three straps and three rolled knee roll.
Adidas, like their bats got a little cheeky in the design as they incorporated their ever so famous three stripes running all the way down the pad which in no way diminishes its shielding power.
