The Ultra Rugby Mouthguard is a superb rugby specific model that combines the ability to breathe more easily with the ability to talk coherently in every phase of play, whilst keeping protection at its optimum.

It is made from a new material unique to Shock Doctor, which becomes very pliable and soft when placed in hot water, thus enabling a superb fit. It is suitable for both adults and children.
