CarbonTek shoulder pad system gives a 360° of unparalleled protection, performance and comfort.

A name recognized for innovation in team sports equipment and apparel, Russell Athletic is proud to introduce a new football shoulder pad system imagined, engineered and designed in conjunction with elite Division I equipment managers, training staffs and kinesiology labs.

Leaning on the expertise of automotive and aerospace engineers, experts in designing strong, yet lightweight materials built to manage energy in high speed collisions, Russell Athletic developed a revolutionary padding system and exoskeleton to outperform the competition.

At the core of the CarbonTek with OS Technology shoulder pad system are two revolutionary materials. The OS Technology foam compression vest performs better than standard EVA foam and the design allows for maximum range of motion. The 100% carbon fiber exoskeleton contributes to a 10% reduction in weight while still providing superior impact management. Both combine to provide a unique advantage allowing the athlete to perform at the highest level.
