Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Equipment Combo
New for 2019, Vaughn Custom Sports has introduced their brand new leg pad model in the Ventus SLR line. The Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Leg Pads are designed specifically for today’s butterfly goaltender and features key materials and features to excel this pad above the rest.
Starting off with the face of the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 goalie leg pad, the graphic is designed as a series of long color zones that start at the lower outside of the pad, travel in toward the middle and then shoot toward the upper outside of the pad, creating the illusion of a wider leg pad.
Moving on to the internal build of the Vaughn SLR2 Pro Carbon, the leg pad comes without outer breaks but still has a single internal break below the knee to help shape the pad to help cover the five hole. The SLR2 features a high density, full pro core structure with a carbon insert throughout the length of the pad. On top, the SLR2 Pro Carbon has an added piece of carbon that sits on the top portion of the face of the pad to help create a rigid and stiff thigh rise. A pre-shaped curved upper profile has been implemented and helps along with the stiff thigh rise to create an optimal seal to the five hole area.
Down toward the bottom of the pad, the boot break features a stiff build to help the pad sit up on the goaltender’s leg. Despite this build appearing as a stiff pad, the SLR2 is designed with strategic flex points to provide a responsive pad that will create easy and quick movements during usage.
On to the outer gusset, Vaughn has used a solid outside roll with a beveled shape to prevent shots from skipping up and over the pad when making saves. The inside edge of the SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads are designed to be flat to have a full complete seal on the ice and is made up of Vaughn’s proprietary QuickSlide material that helps create better pushes with less effort.
On the back of the Vaughn SLR2, the knee cradle is comprised of an MSH3 liner with plenty of space for any size of knee pad to fit comfortably. The knee block features a Velcro knee strap that can be run behind the knee or angled down to the calf. Inside the calf wraps, the Reactive Rotational Control strap is added to provide a snug internal fit. This RRC strap can be adjusted to the goaltender’s preferred tension to create a faster responding pad and is fully secured with a magnetic quick clip.
On the leg channel of the SLR2, the calf wraps have been extended to fit more on top of the goaltender’s leg to create a better response from the pad. Closing off the leg channel, there is a Y-Strap that pulls through the outside and doubles back over itself. At the ankle, the same style strap is featured to help pull the pad up on to their skate and lock the goaltender’s leg to the pad.
Finally, the boot strap of the SLR2 features a hybrid build between traditional leather with an elastic middle. This allows the goalie to wear their boot strap snug but still allow the foot to engage when in deep movements. Also, this strap is fully adjustable which allows it to be placed under the skate, behind the heel or removed entirely. The new toe bungee system on the SLR2 line is designed in the same vein as the boot strap, where the toe of the skate can be worn tight against the pad but will stretch and engage when needed. The toe tie is made of an elastic stretch cord with a unique plastic and clip system that snaps in place in seconds.
In comparison to the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Senior Goalie Leg Pads, the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon features a domestic build with carbon and higher quality materials.
If you are an elite-level goaltender looking for a flat faced and responsive leg pad made for a butterfly style of goaltender, the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Leg Pad is the pad that will write “Your Story”.
Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Glove
New for 2019, Vaughn Custom Sports has introduced their brand new evolution of the Ventus line. The Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Glove continues to be one of the lightest gloves on the market while keeping the traditional Vaughn feel.
Right out of the box you will notice the graphic which is designed with a series of long color zones that move from the middle of the cuff, travel out toward the pinky side of the cuff and then shoot out into the thumb area, creating a wide visual look.
Coming as a two piece cuff design, the SLR2 Pro Carbon will naturally have more flex and freedom for the goalie to catch with ease. The cuff is lined with a carbon panel that gives the goalie the most protection and durability while adding the least amount of weight.
Moving on to the palm area, the closure angle follows the previous Vaughn Ventus lines with a 45 degree, full hand closure. By design, the glove has a large catching profile with a wide based, extra deep pocket that gives greater net coverage. Protection has been added to the palm with Shock-Shield padding and carbon inserts to give the goaltender superior protection in case pucks are not caught clean in the webbing. The pocket of the SLR2 features a single T design with carbon at the top for added reinforcement to prevent it from folding in. This single T design also has a unique webbing pattern in which the lace runs through the middle of the T versus the edge. This allows for more lace in the pocket and better durability.
On the backhand of the SLR2 Pro Carbon, a flared cuff gives the goalie a wide range of motion to help present their glove to the shooter easily. Internally the glove features Neoprene flex and positive grip in the hand to provide more control over the glove. Padding has been added to the thumb, inner wrist, hand base, and fingers along with added carbon inserts to the palm and thumb areas to provide solid protection. Internally, several adjustment points have been placed to fasten the goaltender’s hand comfortably to the glove on the back of the hand and over the wrist.
Compared to the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Senior Goalie Glove, the SLR2 Pro Carbon features a domestic build with carbon and higher quality construction. Also, compared to the SLR2 ST, the SLR2 features a two piece cuff opposed to the SLR2 ST’s one piece cuff.
If you are an elite-level goaltender looking for a lightweight and mobile glove with a two piece design, the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Senior Goalie Glove is the glove that will help you write “Your Story”.
Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Blocker
New for 2019, Vaughn Custom Sports has introduced their brand new evolution of the Ventus line. The Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Blocker continues to be one of the lightest on the market, and one of the lightest that Vaughn has to offer.
Right out of the box you will notice the graphic which is designed as a series of long color zones that move from the bottom outside of the blocker, travel diagonally to the inside and then shoot up and back toward the inside, creating a full graphic over the face of the blocker for a wide visual look.
Looking at the face of the SLR2 Pro Carbon blocker, you will notice the flat faced design with a defined top angle that features an HD foam board with an added carbon insert through the face that helps control shots in to corners, giving the goaltender time to recover. Wrapping around to the flat design of the sidewall, Vaughn has provided an HD foam board with a carbon insert on the face for superior protection and a reactive blocking surface.
On the backhand, Quickslide has been lined on the bottom edge for added durability during RVH or paddle down movements. Further down, a flex cuff has been implemented for added rotation for quality projection angles along with an adjustable wrist strap for a customized fit.
Continuing on the palm of the SLR2 Pro Carbon, Vaughn has used a high hand and palm position to create a balanced feel on the blocker, along with a VX suede palm with a double layer of suregrip for control and durability. The palm has gone through an anti-microbial treatment that will help prevent growth of bacteria inside the palm of the blocker. On the index finger, the inner seam has been removed to not only create a more comfortable feel, but also to provide durability.
Finally, on the thumb and finger protection of the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon, the fingers are protected by two flaps that create a wall over the finger tips composed of HD foam and carbon inserts. Between the hand and sidewall, an air cushion foam pad has been added next to the thumb along with a double layered index finger protector for added protection for odd pucks that may ride up the goaltender’s stick.
In comparison to the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Senior blocker, the SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior features a domestic build with carbon and higher quality construction.
If you are an elite-level goaltender who is looking for a lightweight and reactive blocker, the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie blocker is the blocker that will write “Your Story”.
