Working with many trainers we have come to learn that styles of coaching pads are a personal preference and these preferences vary from trainer to trainer but there is an overall understanding that for practicality the pads need to be lightweight, easy to manoeuvre, comfortable and can absorb impact effectively.
Coaching pads are a crucial training aid to teach skills such as Balance, speed, movement, distance and punching combinations whilst static or when attempting to simulate an opponent’s movement around the ring in a more realistic competitive environment.
The Pro X 7 Series Heavy hitters pad is made from only the best quality supple leather goat hide and a combination of flexible lightweight materials that allows the pads to flex naturally when the inner foams are being compressed. The air foam layers are protected by additional foam materials and a gel layer that catches the initial impact and quickly absorbs the force to protect both the opponent and the user.
The internal part of the mitt needs to enable the user to grip the pad in as natural a position as possible so internally is a palm domed area allowing for a more natural grip reducing undue stress and tension on the inner forearm muscles. Incorporated around the dome is an anti-slip material that allows additional grip to the fingers reducing further movement of the pad when being hit.
The outer finger area is perforated for ventilation allowing the anti-microbial moisture wicking material to aid cooling and hygiene.
There is a generous layer of raised padding under the wrist to aid in the support of wrist flexion for those heavy hitting sessions.
As you know when putting pads on and off the strap system needs to be simple and effective so a wide easy quick release strap is added for additional tension thus reducing the pads from independently moving and slipping.
A great professional coaching pad that will give many hours of protection.
