Made in Canada, the Vaughn Ventus SLR Pro Carbon leg pad is constructed with pro foam core internals and a full-length carbon fibre reinforcement, to provide greater pad edge strength, superior pad durability and flex return.

The design of the core allows the pad to flex with the goaltender's body movements and reduces stress to the knees and hip joints. In addition, it allows for increased speed and rapid movements on the ice.

Vaughn has even widened the inside landing pad to encapsulate and cushion the leg to better support body weight when doing down into the butterfly. The outer leg cradle is shaped to cover the outer calf area and extend coverage into the side profile of the pad to cover gaps and add protection when up tight against the post to eliminate openings.

The biggest change on the SLR Pro Carbon pads is the strapping system. Vaughn eliminates all leather straps and resorts to Velcro, to provide a lightweight and secure method to strap up. You're given the option to secure your knee strap either across the knee or down to the calf; the Active Rotation Control strap below the knee controls the pad's rotation around your leg, and is harnessed by a magnet.

Traditional leather calf straps are replaced with a Velcro Y-strap, equally support the length of the calf/shin. Furthermore, a leather boot strap is replaced with a half leather/half nylon strap, the nylon reduces tension and increases the lifetime of the strap.

Goalie Leg Pads Sizing

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.

Floor-To-Knee Measurement
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

    1. In your bare feet, place the soft measuring tape at the inside of the bottom of your foot.
    2. Slightly bend your knee.
    3. Run the soft measuring tape up your shin, to the middle of your knee.
    4. Match your Floor-To-Knee measurement with the provided sizing chart

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.
