Details

Brand new for 2018, Vaughn Custom Sports releases the newest creation in their most accomplished Velocity family line, the Vaughn Velocity VE8 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads.

Continuing to build off of that Velocity core in the V7 XF, the VE8 has similar characteristics and flex, but the strapping system has undergone a complete overhaul. First, the face of the pad still features flattened knee rolls to aid in vertical and torsional flex but the edges are slightly rounded so they compound better into the thigh and knee sections. Stock, the pad will come with a single outer roll break, but still keeps internal breaks both above and below the knee. This feature will help give the pad some extra durability over time yet will still give the comfortable flex Velocity users have grown to love.

The face of the VE8 Intermediate pad features a new graphic which is a slight departure from the graphics Vaughn was using before. Now, there are harder edges and lines instead of the smooth lines they were known to use. This graphic is purposely designed to be visually distracting to the shooter by creating large breaks in the lines to create a “netting” type look.

Moving through to the side of the VE8 Intermediate pad, you will see a thinner outer gusset which helps promote better pant/pad integration when going in to the butterfly. This thinner outer gusset also helps reduce the weight of the pad which ultimately keeps your body less fatigued. Within the knee cradle, Vaughn has reengineered the way the knee cradle is put together and the amount of options you have for the knee Velcro strap. The knee lander and knee block have full Velcro to give a nice solid landing block to give the best a stable feeling when down. The outer knee flap is also fully removable so for goalies like to angle their knee Velcro knee lock down to the calf, you can unlace the outer flap to create a seamless and smooth rotation.

The largest change that you will notice is within the leg channel and the strapping system across the calf. Vaughn has created two elastic straps that function just like regular straps but have magnets replacing the buckles to increase the speed of getting the pad on/off but also reducing weight. These buckles rotate on the outside buckle so any interference is now removed because of the freedom the buckles have.

Lastly, Vaughn has created a slightly larger calf wrap to fully encompass the leg into the pad. The wrap runs from below the knee to the top of the goalie skate, but has a segment which wraps directly behind the leg to give ultimate protection and closure into the pad. This segment is finished off with a large Velcro double back strap.

If you are a Vaughn Velocity enthusiast that wants simplified and effective strapping, while still keeping the traditional feel without breaking the bank, look no further than the Vaughn Velocity VE8 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads.

Not what we hoped

My son loves the way the pads kick out the puck;; however the durability of the pads is poor. They have worn considerably in a short time and the back leg straps no longer stay clasped. My son always has to tape them.

Not what we hoped for

My son put these on and immediately fell in love with the comfort. For the review, my son plays Rec peewee so skates maybe twice a week. We purchased the pads in June ‘19 and I’m writing this Nov ‘19.
The sewing on strategic areas of the pad (toes, knee pad, etc) are already showing signs of wear and becoming frayed. The calf strap used some sort of different Velcro combo but doesn’t stay attached and quickly gets packed with snow which renders it useless. The magnetic buckles was a cool idea but the plastic piece that is supposed to keep the magnets attached spin in place which can cause the magnets to release during play. My son actually had the magnets release from the buckle during a game and stick to the goal post. It was quite a surprise when he tried to make a push across the crease.
