Brian's Optik X2 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads
New for 2021, Brian’s Custom Sports has released the offshore version of the widely popular Brian’s Optik 2 line, the Brian’s Optik X2 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads.
Starting off with the face of the Brian’s Optik X2, the graphic features a similar graphic to the domestic Optik 2. With aggressive lines and edges, mixed with strategic polymesh vents, this graphic really stands out. Next to the graphic, you will see a streamlined outer roll which helps reduce overall weight, increase flex and aid in better five-hole closure.
Looking at the outer shape of the Optik X2 Intermediate, you will notice a pre-curve like the MAX core found on the Optik 2. With double internal breaks, this pad will curve to your desired shape. At the toe, the X2 pads come with an 80-degree toe taper. This design offers easier transitions in and out of the butterfly with harder rebounds to help direct pucks naturally into the corners of the rink.
Next on to the inside edge of the Brian’s Optik X2 Leg Pads, Brian’s has used their Primo material that helps make butterfly slides easier and more efficient. This sliding edge also features a pro binding design where the binding is recessed into the pad with the slide plates over the top to optimize the sliding surface for efficiency.
On the leg channel, Brian’s has used a slightly wider leg channel than the previous model to allow for a comfortable fit throughout the leg pad. The leg channel is closed off with a large Velcro strap that wraps across the back of the calf. At the knee, you will find a 2 inch wide elastic strap that can either run across the knee or down to the calf. If you choose to run the strap down to the calf, the outer knee flap can be removed via a small lace bridge.
Down at the boot, Brian’s has continued the use of their smart strap system. The Smart Boot Strap is made with high-grade nylon that is commonly used in seat belts to provide the durability the goaltender needs in a boot strap. This strap is fully adjustable for the goaltender to help find their most effective fit and feel. Capping off the strapping system is the Smart toe set up that features an elastic build to provide consistent tension that allows the goaltender to get effective pushes.
If you are an intermediate-level goalie who is looking for a lightweight pad that offers great designs inspired by the domestic counterpart, look no further than the Brian’s Optik X2 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads.
