After many years of use and feedback from players around the world who have worn Zena pads, Douglas has redesigned the series. The cushions have been streamlined to fit closer to the shell, reducing the bulk and weight. The “QB” series has been eliminated and replaced with the versatile “25” series, a true multi-position style pad. The belt and buckles have been removed to now offer a cantilever pad in the Zena series.
Douglas has incorporated the same Air-Management protective properties in the “ZENA” series that has made Douglas the leader in the professional and collegiate ranks. The “patented” breast plate assembly allows a fit for all players, and are adjustable up and down. The anatomically designed pads specifically contour to fit a woman’s body. It is important that women athletes understand they now have a “choice” in innovative shoulder pad protection other than those available in the industry. AC measurement and bra cup size are needed when ordering your Zena pads.
The protective padding (cushion) of the shoulder pad is made of open cell foam. Within the foam are thousands of tiny air cells. By adhering the outer fabric to the foam, a sealed environment is created trapping the air inside of the cushion. When an outside force is exerted on to the shoulder pad shell (load spreader), the force causes the shell to push on the cushion, forcing the air to move within the cells of the foam out 360 degrees, thereby lessening the blow from being felt straight in to the point of impact. There is a much wider area of dispersion, resulting in less trauma to the body.
