WHAT IS PULSE?
Anatomically and ergonomically designed based on feedback from collegiate and
professional catchers, PULSE equipment provides light and comfortable fit but
with superior performance and protection. PULSE stands for Protective Ultra
Lightweight Shock Absorbent Ergonomic – all terms catchers agree describe
PULSE CHEST PROTECTOR
The TPX® PULSE Chest Protector includes advanced dimple padding which
provides the most effective impact reduction system and lightest chest protector
on the market. It has cutting-edge removable suspension floaters, shoulder
guards and groin protectors to provide superior protection and is constructed with
independent design to mimic player movement. The soft and sleek components
increase comfort and the over-the-shoulder harness give catchers a superior
comfort fit in a chest protector.
The PULSE Chest Protector is constructed using black nickel hardware with a
strategic pad design utilizing top-grade memory foam. It is available in large and
intermediate sizes and in black, gray, navy, royal and scarlet colors.
PULSE SHIN GUARDS
Similar innovative and orthopedic design comes to shin guards in 2008 with the
all-new TPX PULSE Shin Guards. The anatomically inspired design features a
sleek, tapered shin with high-impact resistant plastic, reducing weight and
improving mobility without sacrificing protection.
The PULSE Shin Guards also feature an enhanced triple knee design to improve
comfort and function. There are additional built-in shin and knee cap padding
cushions to offset high-impact areas and extra, removable toe caps. Sandwich
mesh side padding reduces weight and increases breatheability, making the
PULSE Shin Guards unmatched in performance and protection.
TPX PULSE Shin Guards come in adult sizes large (16-inches) and XL (17-
inches) and an intermediate size (14.5-inch) with a double knee cap. Both sizes
come in black, gray, navy, royal and scarlet colors.
