Vaughn Velocity V9 Pro Carbon Goalie Leg Pads – Pro Return Jeremy Smith

The new Vaughn Velocity V9 goalie leg pads are not your parents Velocity leg pads, they are a highly technical goal pad with the newest technology on the market today.  Some may look at the series number V9, meaning this is the ninth installment of the Velocity series and think this is just the same old pad with a new graphic.  In some years that may have had some validity but not the Velocity V9, this pad is pushing the envelope of technology.  Starting with a whole new Carbon Core, the Velocity V9 now has a carbon infused foam that is unique to Vaughn Custom Sports.  This Carbon Core makes the pad extremely light and provides a very active rebound response, much more active then previous generation Velocity pads.  The Carbon Core creates a rebound almost identical to the very stiff “butterfly” style pads. One of the great things that Vaughn was able to do with the V9 was maintain the hybrid feel that a Velocity has become known for.  The way they were able to balance the hybrid feel with the active rebounding properties was through the thickness (or profile) of the core.  This created a thinner profile pad which again eliminates weight and also takes away the bulkiness of the pad.  The vertical roll on the V9 has also been thinned out for 2020.

Goalies plus was able to obtain brand new Velocity V9 gear made for Jeremy Smith of HC Kunlun Red Star of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
