Vaughn Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon Goalie Leg Pads

New for 2018 is the Vaughn Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon Goalie Leg Pads. There may be a little confusion between the Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon Leg Pads and the Velocity VE8 Pro Leg Pads (the word carbon is not present in the second version). The VE8 Pro Carbon Pad is the domestic pro version and the Velocity VE8 Pro is the off-shore version. There are a few small details that are different between the two pad but the biggest difference is the country of origin.  The domestic VE8 Pro Carbon pad does offer more custom options but he VE8 Pro pad can also be custom ordered in different colors.

The Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon goal pad has been completely re-designed for 2018 compared to the previous V7 generation.  The biggest two changes a consumer will see is the strapping system and the reduction in weight.  The previous generation Velocity V7 still had a traditional strapping system but the 2018 VE8 has gone to the quick strapping that is very popular these days.  The VE8 Pro Carbon uses elastic straps like most brands but with one major change from other competitors; they use a magnetic clip system to connect the strap to the pad.  Most companies use Velcro to connect to the pad, this is great at the beginning but the Velcro tends to loose its sticking capacity very quickly.  Once this happens, the strap becomes useless.  With this magnetic clip system, you will never have to worry about debris getting in the Velcro and loosing its ability to attach.  Another difference you will feel on the VE8 versus older Velocity series is a stiffer ankle flex.  While still very flexible compared to a blocking or butterfly style pad, there was a lot of feedback from Vaughn’s hybrid style goalies wanted this area to be a bit stiffer as the older pads would break down very quickly in this area.  Vaughn also made another change and that was to the top binding.  The Vaughn went away from a thin traditional binding to a thicker and more square binding design.  This design change will do a better job sealing the five hole and creating extra strength to the pad while in the butterfly position.  The Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon also uses a layer of carbon fiber in the face of the pads and we have seen that this layer adds an increased velocity to the rebound coming off the face of the goalie pad.  Since goalies are wanting the rebound to shoot off the pads faster and further, this layer of carbon fiber helps create that desired effect.

Please note that on Goalies Plus current inventory, the quick slide material was added to the inner edge of these pads
