XPROTEX Slappr Batter’s Forearm Guard: What’s AIC?
The XPROTEX Slappr batter’s forearm guard features impact-absorbing Advanced Impact Composite (AIC) material, which is designed to reduce impact load absorption significantly. AIC can reportedly reduce the impact load generated by a 100 mph fastball to the equivalent of being hit by a 40 mph ball, which drastically reduces the chance of a career-threatening injury. AIC adds no undue bulk or weight, and the Slappr has a slip-on design with no straps, Velcro, or clasps, making it a batter’s forearm guard with maximum protection and maximum comfort.

The foundation of XPROTEX is its patented Advanced Impact Composite (AIC) material. AIC provides a lightweight, flexible, cooler and less restrictive solution to body protection with greater coverage of vulnerable body parts and better impact resistance than comparable products.
