Vaughn's VE8 senior goalie knee pads are an integral part of keeping the goalie's knees protected during play. Building off of previous knee pad designs the VE8 maintains the same amount of top end protection as well as ensuring that it will sit in the correct spot all game.
The VE8 Pro, unlike other knee pads on the market include a garter belt to help keep the knee pad where it is supposed to sit. The garter belt in combination with the silicone on the back of the three attachment straps do a great job of doing this.
The VE8 pro senior goal knee pad needs the garter belt, as its design with two full shields of protection is quite big and may slide down the legs if it were not for said garterbelt. These two shields have molded polyethylene components for shock dispersion and increased protection.
The knee pad also features 2 different kinds of synthetic leather on the kneecap of the knee pad. The Clarino suede leather grips the inside of the knee, and the traditional synthetic leather helps the high contact zone at the knee stand up to the abuse of playing goal.
