IRB Approved, make sure you’re well protected as you take and make the hits in Gilbert’s Evolution Rugby Head Guard in Electric Blue. The head has less flesh than many other parts of the body which means blood vessels are closer to the surface so a small cut or abrasion can cause a lot of bleeding which can be prevented by wearing a head guard in rugby. Ears are also subject to a lot of trauma such as the continuous tearing and healing of the cartilage. This causes the ear to deform through the fluids that are drawn to the impact area trying to offer protection and in turn hardening. However, a head guard is the best prevention of ‘cauliflower ear’. This head guard helps to maintain performance throughout the game. It is crafted with a unique front to back padding configuration which provides an aerodynamic padding system designed to fit the contours of the head. The air vent sections provide ventilation to keep the head cool and the hollowed out ear areas provide improved playe5r communication. The extra long stretch lace system allows for more adjustability and improves the fit.
