Vaughn’s Pro V Elite 2 Carbon senior goalie leg pads are the evolution of the older Pro V Elite. Utilizing the soft pad face of the VE8, and mating it to the SLR strapping to create a hybrid of the two. The Pro V Elite also features a brand new graphic to visually separate itself from the other Vaughn pads available.
The Pro V Elite Carbon features good old synthetic leather for most of the construction of the pad, as well as the traditional Vaughn Nylon and Airknit in the leg channel. The big feature here is the quickslide inner gusset, which lowers drag and increases the slidability of the pad massively.
Vaughn has used an internal construction very similar to the VE8 pad in the Pro V Elite. It utilizes slightly more carbon in the area above the top break in the pad. This extra carbon helps to keep the shape of the pad over time as well as surface area in the butterfly.
Vaughn has decided to go with a single internal, single external break on the Pro V Elite to match the VE8 line of pads. The single break construction allow for a reasonable amount of flex for the goaltender, but still keeps an “arrowhead” shape when the goaltender drops into the butterfly directing pucks to the corners.
The Pro V Elite 2 features a very deep 45* boot. This allows the pad to sit on top of the skate allowing for a very attached feeling through the boot of the pad. The flexible boot helps with puck control and maintaining a feeling of control over the pad itself.
The knee cradle of the Pro V Elite 2 pads is very similar to that of the SLR2. The PVE pad features a large stable knee block with a suede covering to prevent any slipping off the knee stack. The pad also features a removable knee flap if the goaltender prefers to strap down to the calf from the knee.
Knee & Thigh Protection
The PVE pads feature no included knee and thigh protection. The knee cradle offers a large caved out area that would be very appropriate for an individual knee pad however.
The Pro V Elite Carbon has a very similar lightweight strapping system that is seen on the SLR2. This strapping system features new bungee toe ties, for quick and easy attachment as well as more give. The most prominent feature of the SLR strapping is the RRC strap. This strap allows the pad to pivot at its balance point and drive into the ice even faster. The RRC also features a magnetic attachment system so there is no wear from Velcro on the inside of the leg channel.
The Pro V Elite Carbon 2 pads feature a 90* toe taper, with just a slight rounding at the very tip. This 90* taper works well with the softer pads as the torsional flex always allows it to sit flat on the ice and provide the maximum amount of seal possible.

Deciding your Goalie Pads size is crucial for having total control while moving in the crease. Sizing your pads properly is the difference between getting that perfect seal on your butterfly, and feeling clunky or unprotected in the net. Below we have compiled some information to better assist you in deciding which size is right for you.
Your Floor-To-Knee measurement will give you a good indication as to what "Pad Size" you will need. This measurement can be matched up with the provided sizing chart above.
How to Measure your Floor-To-Knee
What to look for when trying on your new pads.
Once you have your new leg pads, you’ll need to make sure they fit you properly. To do so, you’ll need to put the pads on with your skates. There a couple things to do to check size, once you have the pads on:
1. Stand straight and bring your feet together. This will show you the overall height of the pad, while on. Your pads should not be taller than your hips. Ideally you want the top of your pad at the half-way point of your thighs. A pad fitted for a young growing goaltender can be a little taller, so a little above the half-way point is normal.
2. Next you want to get in your stance, keep your hands in a ready position, and drop to your butterfly. Without moving your legs to correct your butterfly, bring your heels together. This is where you assess your knee position. For a proper fit, you want the middle of your knee to sit directly on the center of the knee stack. If you’re looking for growing room, you want the middle of your knee to land roughly 1.5” below the center of the knee stack (1” for JR).
Not getting a complete seal while in your butterfly?
If you're having trouble getting a full seal in your new pads, it may be the way you’re strapping them up. Make sure your boot strap and top straps (above knee) are loosened up a bit. The reason you want these straps loose is because they have a direct effect on the rotation of the pad. Having a loose boot strap makes it easy for your foot and ankle to rotate as the pad moves. Same goes for the top straps, as you don't want them pulling down too hard on the thigh rise.
