Jalen Ramsey has been wearing the Russell CarbonTek Shoulder Pads and Backplate since his days in Jacksonville. These pads are key to his super sleek look. Ramsey, the king of trash talk, has also been known to tape a $20 bill to his backplate to represent his number 20. Now that Ramsey has switched to #5, will he tape a $5 bill..?
The Russell CarbonTek shoulder pads are some of the most unique pads on the market. These pads are super sleek, lightweight and are actually 2 pieces. You have the inner padded, compression vest that you can use for light, 7on7 work, and then the carbon fiber shell that goes over the vest. You can also get the vest with extended length to help protect your ribs.
It’s my understanding that the Russell CarbonTek pads are no longer around. They have been rebranded and are now called “2in1 Carbon Shoulder Pads”. It looks like the exact same product, just with a new name and some updated branding. They are available for $750 on TwoInOneShoulderPads.com.
