The SST Pro-X head protection guard set for pitchers and infielders will protect and perform without distraction. SST Prospect Performance Guards are unlike any other padded cap for pitchers, only covering the most at-risk area of a pitcher’s head. This allows the pitcher to wear concealed head protection without any physical or mental distraction. When used with a properly sized hat, the guard is virtually unnoticeable. Constructed with lightweight carbon fiber, the Pro-X set provides dual coverage for right and left side head protection. The inside of the SST Head Protection Guard is lined with a high density polyurethane padding for added comfort and protection. Due to competition level and higher game speeds, players around the age of 13 and up are recommended to wear Pro X Guards. Players should be fitted accordingly for proper coverage.
All SST Products have been put through a battery of impact tests ranging from 60-93 MPH. Using a headform, triaxial accelerometer, and launcher, we were able to determine a very tangible difference in G Forces when impacted with and without the SST Head Guard.
