New for 2019, Brian’s Custom Sports has released their second tier model of the widely popular Brian’s Optik line. The Brian’s Optik 9.0 Junior Goalie Blocker is a mix between the Subzero and G-Netik lines to bring key elements out of both models to continue to reach new levels of creativity and function.
Starting off with the face of the Brian’s Optik 9.0, the graphic features a main color zone that starts at the bottom of the blocker and extends most of the way up the blocker before turning to the outside edge. Several small accent graphics are placed throughout the unit to give variety on customization and visual design.
Looking at the board of the Brian’s Optik 9.0 Goalie Blocker, you will notice the thin beveled shape that helps cut down the overall weight of the blocker while giving the goaltender a balanced feel. Even with this design, this blocker still has a thick board that sits across the back of the wrist and hand to give the goalie the protection and balance needed to make key saves.
Flipping around to the palm side of the Optik 9.0, a flared cuff gives the goaltender a wide opening to provide great mobility for blocker projection as well as reduce potential interference with a chest protector. On the wrist, a Velcro strap runs from the side wall across the wrist that helps provide the goaltender with their preferred fit and help stabilize the sidewall to give full control over the unit.
Next, the blocker palm has a reinforced SBA no-slip material to provide optimal grip while fitting snug to the goaltender’s hand without loosening up. On the index finger you will find HD foam sewn around the finger to protect the goalie from pucks riding up the stick. Finally, the finger stalls are lined with X-antimicrobial material to help fight bacteria and reduce bad odors.
If you are an intermediate-level goalie who is looking for a lightweight glove that offers a customized fit with a game ready closure, the Brian’s Optik 9.0 Junior Goalie Blocker is the blocker for you.
New for 2019, Brian’s Custom Sports has released their second tier model of the widely popular Brian’s Optik line. The Brian’s Optik 9.0 Intermediate Goalie Glove is a mix between the Subzero and G-Netik lines to bring key elements out of both models to continue to reach new levels of creativity and function.
Starting off with the face of the Brian’s Optik 9.0, the graphic features a large main color zone that starts in the middle of the cuff, travels to the pinky area and then shoots up through the lower palm to the thumb side of the glove. Several small accent zones are also placed throughout the glove for added variety of customization options and visual design.
Moving on to the build of the Optik 9.0, a one piece cuff design gives a naturally large appearance for better visual representation to the shooter. On to the pocket and closure, a redesigned shape on the build with a single T creates a deep large pocket for the goaltender to further help with visual representation and catching surface that will help naturally guide pucks in to the pocket. Topping off the pocket, the same 40 degree break angle from the Optik and SubZero Pro glove is implemented to give the goaltender a closure that is generated by the goalies fingers and finger tips, but has a break that aligns the palm that gives a game ready feel.
Internally on the Optik 9.0 Intermediate, an SBA no-slip material is used through the hand to provide a comfortable feel that provides grip when the goaltender’s hand sweats. On the wrist area, a floating wrist pad that sits slightly off the base of the glove is utilized to give the goaltender maximum flexibility when reaching toward pucks, along with a nylon strap pulls over top that is easily accessible for quick adjustments. On the back of the hand, a pad sits over the top below the fingers with an adjustable strap to provide the tightness the goaltender prefers.

New for 2019, Brian’s Custom Sports goalie equipment has released their second tier model of the widely popular Brian’s Optik line. The Brian’s Optik 9.0 Junior Goalie leg pads are a mix between the Subzero and G-Netik lines to allow any style of goalie to be comfortable in a Brian’s leg pad.
Starting off with the face of the Brian’s Optik 9.0, the graphic features a main color zone that starts at the bottom of the pad and extends most of the way up the pad before turning to the outside edge. Several small accent graphics are placed throughout the pad to give variety on customization and visual design. Moving on, the outer roll is dramatically thinned out to reduce weight and allow for better five hole closure.
Looking at the outer shape of the Optik 9.0 Junior, you will notice the pre-curved design due to the internal breaks that are similar to the Optik “FLX” option that features a double internal break 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 in to the corners of the rink.
Next on to the inside edge of the Brian’s Optik 9.0 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.
Moving on to the back of the Optik 9.0 leg pads, Brian’s has used a slightly wider leg channel than the previous model to allow for a comfortable fit throughout the leg pad. On the knee cradle, Brian’s has used a laced in design to help keep the knee block tight to the pad along with nylon on the inner landing surface to give the goaltender a comfortably landing they can grip to when in the butterfly. This knee block features a 45 degree cut in the top edge that helps create space for the goaltender during movements to reduce the chance of interference between the leg pads.
On to the strapping of the Optik 9.0 Junior, it starts with a knee strap on the knee block that can be reversed in case the Velcro wears down over time to improve the lifespan of the strap This strap can also be angled down or straight across according to the goaltender’s preference, allowing any goalie to feel comfortable in the Optik 9.0. On to the calf strapping, Brian’s has provided a Y strap on the inner part of the calf to pull the calf wrap in to create a balanced fit on the leg pad. This Y strap allows for a customized fit due to the adjustability of the straps and the large connecting area. Completing the leg strapping, a final strap over top pulls the sliding edge in place and closes the leg channel.
Finally, Brian’s Smart Boot Strap is featured and 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. The final touches of the strapping comes with the Smart toe set up that features an elastic build to provide consistent tension that allows the goaltender to get effective pushes without restriction.
