Millikens Tegris lightweight, high impact, thermoplastic composite has been selected by Riddell for their next generation of shoulder pads the LightSpeed.

Milliken say that the new shoulder pads are the lightest shoulder pads in football, combining state-of-the-art technologies with unparalleled comfort and protection. The pads are significantly lighter than conventional offerings yet still provide the protection that players at the highest levels expect.

I dont know how they do it, but those pads are the lightest Ive ever worn, said Baltimore Ravens tailback Willis McGahee. Every guy in the league is going to be wearing the LightSpeed by the end of the season, no doubt.
