Intro & New Features
With the Ventus SLR 2 Pro leg pads Vaughn continues its modern pad line to give a similar feel, but with upgrades to improve the already great value that they provide. With features like the bungee toe ties and the Quickslide trickling down from the SLR 2 Pro Carbon pads, the SLR 2 Pro senior goalie leg pads are sure to offer exceptional performance for their price range.
For the Ventus SLR 2 leg pads Vaughn has added their Quickslide technology which increases the slide considerably over weave leather or traditional jenpro. This is one of the key upgrades taken down from the SLR 2 Pro Carbon.
The internal foams of the SLR 2 Pro senior goalie leg pads is a full foam core internal structure, which provides a more solid blocking surface and a more predictable rebound due to the fully flat front surface.
Vaughn’s SLR 2 Pro is a no break pad that features a pre-curved design to ensure proper five hole closure in the butterfly, as well as surface area maximum coverage.
The boot break of the new Ventus pad is a 60* angle which sits much higher on the foot than Velocity model Vaughn pads. This will provide a more “on top of foot” modern pad feel that does an excellent job of putting pucks to the corners in the butterfly.
The large widened knee cradle of the SLR2 pads ensures the goaltending is landing solidly on the stack when going down, while being free enough to allow for proper pad rotation in the process. The knee cradle also features a suede surface to stop slipping which is helped by the angled velcro strap as well.
Knee & Thigh ProtectionThe SLR 2 pads rely on seperate knee protection as they do not include a knee pad or a thigh protector in the box.
The strapping of the SLR 2 pro pads is very similar to their older sibling the SLR. The Rotation Control Strap, which is a key strap to the way the SLR fits is still included. This strap allows for a tight fit that still reacts appropriately when the butterfly is initiated. The boot strap has also been switched from leather to a synthetic material that allows for more precise adjustment.
Keeping with the modern goal pad style, the Ventus SLR 2 offers a 90* toe taper to allow for the most effective seal to the ice when in the butterfly, as well as the most stability while down on the ice.
