Integra Arm Guard
Epoch Lacrosse’s Integra Arm Guard is for the player looking for extra protection. Engineered using a dual density compression molded foam to be lightweight and resistant to lacrosse stick checks while improving flexibility and movement. The Integra Arm Guard is engineered with a two piece 4-way stretch spandex, 1” elastic bands, internal silicone print to reduce slippage and reinforced with TPU for extremely comfortable arm protection. The revolutionary Sandwich Locking System on the bicep and forearm virtually eliminates pad slippage while allowing for a customized fit and added protection. The hard shell cap with carbon fiber reinforcement is designed to give players needed protection without limiting maneuverability.

Our engineers are lacrosse players, and know lacrosse inside and out and what advanced players are looking for in their protective equipment. They were set out to create the ultimate lacrosse protective gear sourcing the most technologically superior materials available in their creation – Phase Change Technology, Carbon Fiber and Tri-Layer Dual Density Foam Stack.
Phase Change Technology
Our engineers sourced this high performance textile from the aerospace industry where it has been used with great success lining the space suits of astronauts to regulate their body temperatures. Phase Change Technology is engineered to absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort and moisture control. The new Phase Change Technology used in our Integra gloves, arm guards and shoulder pads senses your body heat and reacts accordingly. Micro crystals within the material (which are always at a consistent room temperature) absorb and melt (similar to an ice cube) when you sweat to cool you down. When you get cold, the Micro crystals then turn to a solid, contract and form a shield to preserve your body heat and warm you up.
Our Integra Plaeyrs Glove uses a non-rigid stabilized carbon fiber that is an extremely lightweight and “flexible” carbon fiber that has improved impact protection and is also resistant to abrasions. Our engineers incorporated Carbon Fiber into the design of our glove utilizing it to protect the thumb and back of the hand. Carbon Fiber is also used in other high impact areas such as the elbow caps of the arm pads and the bicep pads on the Integra Shoulder Pads.
Compression Molded Dual Density Foam
Dual Density Foam: This foam reduces the amount of stitching needed on the pad, improving flexibility, movement and protection. From a design standpoint, this also allows Epoch to be more precise in the shape of the pad, giving the Integra Protective Line an overall cleaner, and more precise look.
Sandwich Locking System
The revolutionary Sandwich Locking System eliminates pad slippage while allowing for a customized fit and added protection. The hard shell cap with carbon fiber reinforcement is designed to give players needed protection without limiting maneuverability.
