Maximum Performance Guaranteed.

PowerBlade Elite is made with our advanced, patented Bolt monofilament fiber and is the next generation in engineered performance. Designed around performance criteria that measures both athlete-surface and ball-surface interactions delivering a quality turf system with the best combination of durability, playability and safety. PowerBlade Elite is an engineered system specifically built to meet the stringent laboratory and field tests of FIFA. The FIFA Quality Concept ensures that your Shaw Sports Turf field delivers the maximum level of performance and quality to your athletes.



PowerBlade Elite sand and rubber or sand and Geofill systems are installed in a layered formulation specifically developed for the needs of soccer. The layer of sand on the bottom acts like a penetration barrier and sports the penetration of the foot into the surface. A mixed infill allows more penetration of the foot and will make the athlete feel less stable when running or turning on the surface. This is measured through a performance test called vertical deformation. A one or two millimeter difference in vertical deformation can mean the difference between passing or failing the test to qualify for FIFA Recommended Field.


Shock pads provide additional safety and performance benefits, including shock attenuation which can help prevent injuries from tackles, trips and falls throughout the season. Shock pads are highly elastic and provide great shock absorption. The system deforms very little at the point of impact but effectively spreads the impact over a larger area, creating a stable platform for the athlete - balancing performance and safety without sacrificing one for the other. A proper pad system will yield a g-max level lower than 100 (safety) yet have vertical deformation (foot stability) and force reduction (lower extremity protection) values in range of high quality grass.

Other benefits include:
-Shorter pile height (less fiber material required)
-Can be used over traditional drainage bases
-Easy to install Makes turf replacement easier as it shouldn’t disturb the base underneath
-Can be used for 2 to 3 life-cycles
