Vaughn Ventus SLR3 Youth Goalie Leg Pads – Stock
New for 2022 is the third generation of the popular Ventus SLR line from Vaughn. 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 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.
