New for 2021, the Brian's OPTiK X2 INT Goalie Leg Pads bring many high-quality pro benefits to a value price point. Featuring a flat-faced flexible core design, OPTiK 2 style calf wrap system, and a primo sliding edge, the OPTiK X2 is a great option for goalies.
The face of the OPTiK 2 goal pads are wrapped in a traditional JenPro material. On the inside sliding edge Brian's has strategically used its proprietary Opti-Slide primo material. Opti-Slide is an embossed material that allows for an effortless slide across the ice when in the butterfly position.
The OPTiK X2 leg pad features a flexible core internal construction. This core design allows the pad to flex where it needs to, while remaining rigid in key areas for hard rebounds and seal along the ice.
The pad break setup of the Brian's X2 pad is one internal break below the knee, with no external breaks. This allows for the pad to flex where needed, while maintaining proper seal and structure along the ice.
Boot Angle & Toe Taper
The OPTiK X2 leg pad features an 80 degree boot angle, with a stiffer boot. The 80 degree toe taper on the X2 allows for adequate coverage, while giving room for the skate to bite the ice. A stiffer boot allows for the pad to have more overall size, as it will sit up higher on the skate.
The Knee cradle of the OPTiK X2 features a recessed nylon design with a thick, stable knee stack. While the knee stack provides seal and stability along the ice, the recessed nylon knee cradle allows the pad to easily rotate, and accommodate any knee pad.
Knee & Thigh Protection
The Brian's OPTiK X2 does not come with a knee pad, however it does have the velcro tabs for Brian's Pro 2 or G-NETiK knee pads to be attached. These velcro tabs are a great option for any goalie that prefers a more connected feel, or to prevent any knee pad slippage.
The OPTiK X2 features the same simple, yet effective strapping as the OPTiK 2 pro. This strapping is made up of one main adjustable calf strap, with a knee strap and a removable boot strap.

The Brian's OPTiK X2 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads are available in sizes 30+1 through 32+1. The X2 is a stock color offering only, available in All White, White/Black, White /Black/Red, White/Blue, and White/Red.
