Endorsed by England captain Joe Root the New Balance Batting Pads return with a familiar but vibrant look. The new improved design on the batting pads appeal to cricketers of various levels, whether that be an international level cricketer, or a junior level cricketer making his first steps in the game. New Balance have a batting pad to suit the needs of all players, regardless of their ability. For example, the DC 1280 Batting pad is suitable for the highest level of cricket, a test quality batting and containing a 7 cane system in the shin bolster as well as tilton foam to provide impact protection suitable for the grandest stages in cricket. In contrast, for those making their first strides in the game, a club level batting pad, the DC 580 provides the perfect armour.
