- Additional information
Control the trenches and impose your team’s will. Play with leverage. The S-Advantage Sleds are built and designed for virtually every position. S-Pads accurately
represent the contact position. They are equally as effective for DLs as OLs, for RBs and LBs, and for DBs and TEs. You can practice and improve all of your blocking
techniques. The sled works for hands, punch, forearm, shoulder, rip, and swim. No other sled has that many options. An S-Advantage sled is like four sleds in one.
RUN THROUGH FRAME
Your players can run through the frame of the sled. This is possible because there’s only one connector link between each pad, and the link is just above the ground. The sled also provides wide 56” center-to-center pad spacing.
GOAL LINE SITUATIONS
Because the S-Pads extend close to the ground, you can work crab blocks and goal line situations. Each pad is removable for storage. To remove, you unzip the pad and unlock the Velcro straps. The S-Pads are the only pads we know of with a two-part protective cover.
HEAVY DUTY CONSTRUCTION
Work traps, pulls, downblocks or virtually any combination on the S-Sleds. We believe in heavy steel construction. To maintain a power base, your players need a heavy sled that
resists. Each person is in essence driving 240 lbs.
PASS PRO & LINEBACKER DRILLS
Work Pass Pro drills or defensive punch techniques on the S-Pads. The curved S-Pads will force players to bend their knees. For big results an S-Advantage Sled is the right choice for your team. Even players tell us you can’t cheat the S-Pads.
NEW S2 PAD:
The new S2 pad has built into the surface of the pad a breast plate with enough “give” to allow the offensive player to gain a “handle.” The new S2 pad also includes arms (stubby short arms) that mirror the difficulty of hand placement in a dynamic combative environment.
HIT-TECH LEVERAGE MECHANISM:
The Hit-Tech (the yellow-circled breadbox-looking mechanism shown below) allows each player to leverage his pad from a starting position to an upright position, where the chest of the pad is nearly perpendicular to the ground. The pad leverages (rises) on a realistic angle. The Hit-Tech helps teach violent hands or shoulder skills. As you leverage the pad, it becomes more difficult to raise, and you encounter more resistance than just the weight of the pad. The force required to leverage the pad is 189 lbs. per inch (plus the 90 lb. weight of the pad plate). This encourages players to bring their hips through their blocks. The pad doesn’t superficially unlock at a certain point and become lighter.
