At the end of the day, keeping protected is the main aim of any goalie when they are looking for equipment. One of the first and most important pieces to keep protected is knee pad. With the release of the SLR Pro intermediate knee pad Vaughn is doing it's best to make sure growing goalies are protected.
Keeping knee pads up on the leg has always been a big struggle for goalies looking for more protection. With 3 urethane covered straps, the SLR Intermediate knee pad will stay stuck where it is supposed to stay during play.
Keeping the knee pad in place doesn't mean anything if it doesn't protect however. The SLR intermediate features molded polyethylene pieces to make sure the goaltender stays protected. The lower profile fit of the SLR Int also works much better for goalies that are not used to having something on their knees during play.
Making sure you make it through the game in one piece is the only way you can be sure to make it to the next one. With the help of the SLR Int, the goalie can be sure that they will be skating another day.
