Vaughn Ventus SLR3 Youth Goalie Leg Pads – Special Edition
New for 2022 is the third generation of the popular Ventus SLR line from Vaughn. Goalies Plus will provide our customer base another Special Edition version of the Ventus SLR line in youth sizes. We will have four unique colors ways available – White, Red & Black; All Black; Blue, White & Red; Black, Orange and White.
The Vaughn Ventus SLR3 is called a Youth size by Vaughn, we feel that this pad is more of a hybrid of a youth and junior pad. Compared to other youth goalie leg pads on the market today, the Ventus SLR3 is a much higher quality. This pad has a pre-molded s-shape which allows a goalie to maximize their butterfly coverage. This is a true goalie leg pad, not just a piece of foam with a channel cut out for the legs.
The SLR3 also has the Quick Slide material on the inside of the pad which is a huge upgrade compared to other traditional “youth” pads that are generally a nylon or a cheap synthetic leather. Along with the quick slide material, the inner edge is made of a high-density foam which allows a young goalie to properly develop butterfly techniques. Another reason we feel that this is a youth/junior goalie leg pad is the sizing. The Ventus Special Edition SLR3 Youth pad comes in 24+2 and 26+2 sizes. The 26+2 is not generally a youth size, this is generally a junior size.
If you have a goalie that is in between youth and junior, the SLR3 is the perfect pad. The Ventus SLR3 is also great for the parent looking for a high-end youth goalie pad as well.
