The Epoch Integra arm guards are made for that elite level player that wants low profile protection that still gives them the ability to go to the cage with confidence. Made with advanced, flexible carbon fiber - these feel soft and supple, but the material is as strong as steel . The floating end cap is covered with this carbon and really eats up the blows. Epoch stretched the inner sleeves about 3/4 of an inch up and down the pad beyond the high density foam and these will not slip or ride up like other pads. Epoch integrated straps which allow the pad to fully function as three separate pieces, but entirely cover all parts of your arm when flexed. Epoch is well know for quality construction in its products and the mesh they used on the interior is top notch. These are priced up with the elite class pads and we expect the high school and collegiate attack crowd to eat 'em up as soon as they see the quality and performance that is being delivered here.
