Brian's Optik 2 Pro Senior Custom Goalie Leg Pads
Brand new for 2019, Brian’s Custom Sports has introduced their next second adaptation in the Optik series with the Brian’s Optik 2 Pro Senior Custom Goalie Leg Pads. Brian’s aimed to reach a new level of creativity with the first Optik line and the Optik 2 takes that concept and improves key features to push the bar even higher for Brian’s gear.
Starting off with the outer structure of the Brian’s Optik 2 pads, you will see the familiar outer roll from the previous Optik pad that both reduces the weight of the build and improves five hole closure.
Looking at the outer shape of the Brian’s Optik 2, the FLX and FLY models are back with an all new MAX option to help satisfy all styles of goalies wanting to use the Optik 2 pad. Starting off on the returning options, the FLX option is similar to a double internal break with an 80 degree toe taper which is meant for a hybrid goalie who wants more of an S curve to their pad. Finally, the FLY option will be for a goalie who has a wider butterfly and wants a stiffer pad setup with a 90 degree toe taper.
On to the brand new new MAX option, Brian’s decided to create this option due to customer input and popular trends in custom orders. The MAX option will be a middle ground between the FLX and FLY option, featuring the S shape as seen in the FLX but offering a stiffer build that a goalie needs for long term use but will not be as stiff as the FLY option. The MAX option will come as a 90 degree toe taper that will help the pad sit slightly higher on the goaltender.
All three Optik 2 options will feature harder rebound patterns to allow the goaltender to kick pucks out away and hard to the corners. Each will feature an ultra lightweight E foam pad core implemented to keep the Optik 2 at a very low weight construction.
The inside edge of the Brian’s Optik 2 will feature the popular Primo sliding edge as seen in other Brian’s models. Primo is designed to give the goaltender a quicker sliding surface while adding durability for long term use.
Moving on to the back of the pad, Brian’s has slightly refined the leg channel from the Optik build. The knee cradle is made of a high grade nylon which makes for a more comfortable landing. Brian’s has added a stiffness to the knee to create a more stable landing when going down in to the butterfly. The final touch on the knee block is the 45 degree angle edge that helps reduce the risk of the knee blocks interfering with each other during movements and recoveries.
The leg channel features the popular 2 inch Smart X strap as used in the previous model that will help over rotation and will keep the knee tight into the knee lock. From below the inside of the calf to the outside of the knee, there is a removable 1 inch wide strap that can help secure the knee further into the pad, similarly found on the Gnetik3. In the calf, the Optik 2 pad features a large removable air pillow that provides extra support under the calf when down in the butterfly.
Finally, the boot strap features the same seatbelt style smart boot strap with an elastic smart toe cord for a more responsive connection to the Optik 2 leg pad.
If you are an elite-level goaltender who previously enjoyed the Optik leg pad or is looking for the newest and best offering from Brian’s Custom Sports, look no further than the Brian’s Optik 2 Pro Senior Custom Goalie Leg Pads.
