When it comes to football gear, it’s crucial that every piece of equipment fits properly to ensure player safety and protection. Xenith shoulder pads are crafted with advanced materials and built to offer players lightweight performance to minimize fatigue late in games when the game is on the line, but achieving the right fit is essential. 

From youth to varsity and beyond, Xenith shoulder pads prioritize player safety. In this guide, we’ll explain how to fit Xenith shoulder pads correctly to dial in comfort and enhance wearability. Explore the complete shoulder pad lineup.

Steps to Fit Xenith Shoulder Pads

Properly fitted shoulder pads are integral to an athlete's performance and safety. Please follow the instructions below to be sure Xenith shoulder pads are fitted properly. Using a standard, soft measuring tape, measure the width of the back from the edge of the left shoulder to the edge of the right shoulder.

Step 1: Measure The Athlete

We recommend using a soft tape measure to measure from AC joint to the opposite AC joint to determine the correct size.

Step 2: Refer To The Sizing Chart

Once measurements are recorded, take a look at our sizing chart located online to determine the proper fit and proper size shoulder pads.

Step 3: Try On The Shoulder Pad

It's time to pull on the pads. Put the shoulder pads on and fasten the straps - be careful not to over tighten the straps, resulting in restricted movement or discomfort.

Step 4: Ensure Coverage Of Shoulders & Sternum

Make sure there's no pinching around the collar or neck. Lift the top shoulder plate to ensure the secondary pad coverage over the shoulder. Also, confirm the pads cover the sternum and shoulder blades.

Lightweight. Low Profile. Superior Comfort.

Football is fast and physical, so we make shoulder pads to keep up with the demands of today's game. Xenith pads provide athletes playing at all levels with enhanced protection, comfort, and elevated performance - all within a lightweight, low profile design that's easy to clean, store and maintain
