Vaughn brings another glove into the mix this year with the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 ST Intermediate. Keeping close to the original SLR glove from 2017, The SLR2 ST is boasting a few new changes without anything too drastic. Featuring a new large solid thumb style, wider and deeper pocket and the addition of QuickSlide, this glove brings all the right features together.
Keeping with tradition, Vaughn sticks with regular Jenpro on the trapper. The big change this year is the addition of quickslide, which isn’t going to improve much on the performance side but more so on the durability side. The Quickslide has been added to certain highwear areas such as the pocket T in order to achieve a longer lifetime for the glove.
The new Ventus glove is a 75-degree angle break, similar to a CCM 600 break. This break prompts the goaltender to position their glove more to the slide rather than up right.
The SLR2 ST trapper boasts a wider and deeper pocket keeping similar to the trend this year. The single T design along with the increased the catching area of the glove and the deeper pocket all improve puck retention. This glove is perfectly designed for anybody concerned about popouts.
The Vaughn SLR2 ST keeps the same strapping as always, with the quick adjustable wrist strap and velcro over the back of the hand and finger tips. This will allow the perfectly customized fit. If you’re looking to go more in depth, toss the glove in a skate over and it will help mold the foams around your hand.
Vaughn Ventus intermediate catcher features a flared back cuff for added wrist mobility. This design allows for ample protection while also never having to worry about you chest protection interfering with your glove.
The Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Int glove is available in multiple colours in store such as white/red, white/blue, white/black and all white.
