Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Special Edition Goalie Equipment Combo

Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Senior Leg Pads – Special Edition

Now available is the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 gear in special edition colors.  There are four custom color ways – Black, Red & White; Black, Blue & White; All Black and White, Red & Black.  These color ways can only be found at Goalies Plus.

New for 2019 is the second generation of the popular Ventus line from Vaughn.  The Ventus SLR2 line was created as an option to the Vaughn Velocity line.  The Velocity series is a flexible and soft pad that is extremely popular with hybrid style goalies.  Some Vaughn pro goalies wanted a hybrid pad that was a bit stiffer then the Velocity pad but did not want a stiff blocking style/butterfly style pad.  With input from goalies like Matt Murray of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings, the Ventus SLR series was born.  The SLR and now SLR2 series is a combination of a hybrid and butterfly style pad combined into one.

Some of the new features is the SLR2 pad are a stiffer section from the knee up which allows for greater coverage in the butterfly position by keeping the thigh rise rigid.  From the knee down, the Ventus SLR2 pad has a softer feel compared to a traditional blocking/butterfly pad which allows for better movement and easier recovery techniques.  The face of the SLR2 pad is very firm which allows the puck to rebound off the pad at greater distances compared to a traditional hybrid style pad. Also new on the Ventus SLR2 pad is the new inner edge material.  Vaughn is now using a quick slide material on the inner edge, the knee landing and outer calf wrap.  This quick slide material will greatly increase the side to side speed of a goalies butterfly slide.  This material will help tremendously later in games when the ice is chalked up and slow.  Another new feature of the Ventus SLR2 pad is the toe bungee system.  For years manufactures like Vaughn have used skate lace to connect the toe of the pad to the toe of the skate.  In recent years, after market bungee toe tie products have become very popular because they allow the toe of the pad to stretch from the toe of the skate with an elastic type effect.  This stretching and recoiling improves the recovery process of a goalie but also takes pressure off the goalies ankles, knees and hips because it eliminates the quick stop and jerk process that skate lace has when it runs out of slack.  The vertical roll on the SLR2 has also been changed for 2019. The vertical roll (outer roll) is now a triangular design which eliminates weight and increases rebound control. The last change we would like to mention on the 2019 SLR2 pad is the top binding.  Just like on the 2018 Velocity VE8, Vaughn has gone to a more square and stronger top binding.  This style binding allows for a stronger and tighter seal when the goalie is utilizing the butterfly technique.

Vaughn SLR2 – VE8 XP Spec Special Edition Goalie Catch Glove

The Vaughn SLR2 – VE8 Spec Special Edition catch glove is something unique to Goalies Plus and our SLR2 Special Edition series.  This glove was made to match the Ventus SLR2 Special Edition pads & blockers but as a VE8 XP spec glove.  The reason we choose to go with this spec is because the VE8 XP has been a much more popular glove then the Ventus gloves. We felt it would be best to match our custom series with this particular model.  The SLR2 – VE8 spec gloves come in four custom color options – Black, Red & White; Black, Blue & White; All Black; White, Red & Black.

The SLR2 – VE8 spec glove is a 75 degree palm angle. This glove is made for a goalie that likes the feel of the CCM/Reebok Premier glove but wants to stay in the Vaughn family.  The SLR2 – VE8 Pro XP glove has the single cuff design that adds strength and stability to the wrist area.  This feature is also popular with goalies that like to stick handle with the pocket of the glove facing upward.  The palm of the glove has an extra layer of foam on the outer portion of the glove that adds extra protection for the goalies hand. Another new feature is the split T design of the pocket.  At the base of the pocket there is a single t that splits into a double t the higher it goes in the pocket.  The single t at the base gives the glove much more flexibility then a traditional double t base.  As the pocket transitions into a double t, the glove then takes on the soft open characteristic of a double t pocket.  This is popular as it creates a soft catching pocket which is much more forgiving then the single t pocket.  This t pocket design also allows the glove to open and close fully which give the goalie the blocking surface area and the max closure of the glove.
