  • SPES Light Forearm Overlays

    The Light overlays were designed for customers looking for lighter, shorter and narrower forearms with a wide range of modification options. This forearm model belongs to SPESLAB products, which means that it is a full-fledged but prototype version of HEMA equipment. They can be used by both women and men, regardless of the size of their jackets. The overlays will be perfect during training, regardless of their intensity or the simulators used.

    There are velcros on the inside, designed to attach, for example, shell elbows. They are fastened with two rubber straps, and finished with velcro. The lights are made of microcellular styrogum, which is characterized by both high durability and strength. They have special elastic straps with strong velcro, which allow keeping the overlay in the shape set by the user. In practice, they fit different hands.

    NOTE! The product is delivered disassembled. It has the so-called shape memory, and the customer himself gives it a suitable form before the first use. After training, put them back in folded form with fastened straps. This will prevent possible loss of its shape, which may occur after a longer break in use. You can modify the shape of the Light overlays yourself and adjust it according to your individual needs. They are comfortable and at the same time, do not restrict movement, they also do not have any elements that could interfere with HEMA training.
