These Fairtex kick pads are made in Thailand using a high quality, odorless, microfiber.. which makes for an alternative for those wanting to avoid leather products.
Each pad is roughly 100 grams lighter than the standard KPLC model, leather-based kick pads. Similar to the “super” kick pads by Top King, these pads have an extra layer of padding positioned down the center of the pad for extra forearm support. This makes absorbing the impact from heavy kicks a lot easier. Additional padding was added within the pads as well, also to enhance the impact absorption.
The top of the pad is soft, which allows the trainer/holder to simulate a fight scenario by throwing some light punches at the student/training partner. These pads are sold as a pair.
