This Pre-curved Strike Shield has been pre-shaped to match the kicking movement. This way, the kick pad will absorb the impact of a kick more easily and remains stable. Lonsdale’s Curved Strike Shield is made of high quality synthetic leather with reinforced and double stitched seams that ensure an extra long lifespan. The kicking pad is also equipped with firm handles on both its sides and the back. This Kick Pad is durably designed and can therefore be used for kicking, kneeing and punching, at home as well as in the gym.
