When it comes to putting your body on the line our team have taken more than their share of hard hits. We’ve faced fast bowlers on the pitch, and taken on armed criminals in the line of duty, but through it all there’s one thing we learned, protecting your body is paramount.
Back in December of 2014 an idea struck us. What if you could take the bulky protective gear that today's professional cricketers wear and streamline it like a bullet proof vest? It was an idea that could revolutionise the game.
Introducing AURA; Australian made and manufactured, it’s the latest in advanced protective performance wear and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
After lengthy consultations with cricketer’s of all abilities, it was clear that the Velcro straps on conventional padding hindered the player’s ability to perform while the materials used to make the pads only offered the bare minimum in safety.
We knew that improving these weaknesses in conventional padding was the key to creating the future of protective performance wear. Better performing materials that molded to the individual's body.
Inspired by the ballistic equipment worn by Special Operations units, AURA uses a combination of advanced shock absorbing materials to deliver the highest level of protection, while maintaining the flexibility and freedom of movement Cricketers need to perform at their peak.
We didn’t want our cricketers just to take a hit, we wanted to make sure they could hit back.
This is where AURA excels. Unlike other padding systems which offer limited protection at the cost of mobility, AURA molds and flexes with an athlete's body offering a full range of motion, while instantly hardening under the stress of high energy impacts. This means an athlete can move freely and perform at their optimum level under any condition, confident they are protected from even the most aggressive bowling.
AURA has been tested and retested under the harshest conditions, all to bring you the next generation in protective performance wear. #AURAHASARRIVED.
What our customers are saying..
“AURA has also improved my batting as i can take a clear step forward without my thigh pad coming down and distracting me. As well as that, i love how it is pain free when being hit, compared to my last thigh pad which hurt whenever i got hit.”
“I love wearing AURA’s equipment. Lightweight, comfortable and strong, it sets me up to perform at my best. Whether it’s my thigh guard set when batting or the compression sleeves to bowl and field in I can’t go wrong with AURA. Thanks guys!”
“I really enjoy using the AURA gear. It is light weight, durable and most of all very protective. Due to the material used and the design, if you do get hit the equipment fully protects you. I am looking forward to using AURA again this coming season and would highly recommend it.”
