When Aero carefully analysed the ergonomics of batting - especially sprinting, the body position when taking stance, playing forward and back foot shots they identified many problems with old style thigh pads. They didn't fit, they didn't integrate and in some cases they just didn't protect at all. They noticed that the hip was often exposed from playing pull shots, leg glances, back foot defence and even sweep shots. Most players didn't have both thighs protected, especially the youth who play on bouncy artificial wickets. But of most concernthey were uncomfortable, inhibited running, never stayed in place and were constantly in need of re-adjustment (sometimes during every over).In many cases youth cricketers just did not bother with any protection. And then there's the evil smell !The outcome of an intensive 3 year development are these Lower Body Protectors called Strippers. They deliver the key performance elements ofbetter protection, better comfort, better speed and better durability for all batsmen in a unique and balanced way.Strippers design is an integrated system which protects both the upper and lower thighs, around the inner groin, the hip bone as well as part of the buttocks. It's why aero has a "lower body protector rather than just thigh guards.Strippers use the best materials 3D moulded high impact plastics, multiple closed-cell foam combinations and user friendly, antibacterial polyester mesh.The Lower Body Protector is designed to integrate with Aero Leg Protectors in a completely natural way making the whole combination up to 9% faster between the wickets. You'll run as though you're not wearing thigh guards at all!
Available in small, medium or large. To establish the correct size measure from the middle of the knee cap to the top of the hip bone - the strippers have a dual waist adjustment so the most important sizing measurement is the knee to hip bone one not the waist measurement. Small should be 48-51cm, Medium 51-56cm and Large 57-61cm.
