Brian's GNetik Pro II Leg Pad Features
The Brian's GNetik Pro II Goalie Leg Pads are a brand new, top of the line offering from Brian's, "The Custom Goal Company", for 2015. The GNetik Pro II's feature a double break that has been engineered by Brian's and has been dubbed their Hyperflex 4 break design. The Hyperflex 4 is the softest break that Brian's has ever offered, and it is even feature on the GNetik Pro II's boot break. In addition to their super-soft break, Brian's features their ultra lightweight, E-Foam in the construction of the pad. They have even managed to decrease the weight of the pad by a whole 10% without sacrificing any protection! The GNetik Pro II's are designed for the hybrid-style goaltender who is going to have a tighter butterfly and play a more "reaction" style of play.
Brian's GNetik Pro II Leg Pad Upgrades
There have been several performance upgrades this year in the Brian's GNetik line. The first, which was already mentioned, is the fact that Brian's has been able to use their E-Foam to cut 10% of the weight out of the padding. In addition to that, Brian's has replaced the SBA material that was originally featured on the GNetik line with their durable Primo material. They have added this synthetic Primo to multiple areas of the pad including the knee cradle, boot, toe binding, and they have even wrapped the knee block in it. As for the adjustment of the pad, Brian's features their new Smart Strap system. This means two straps at the toe, and one nylon boot strap as opposed to the traditional toe ties. Finally, one of the most visible changes in the Gnetik Pro II's is the elimination of the knee rolls on the face of the pad. This also played a big role in reducing the final weight of the pads.
|Weight:||5.46 lbs||Weight of a single leg pad measured in pounds (Sr 34" Int 30" Jr 28" Yth 23").|
|Pad Style:||Reaction / Hybrid||The style of play ("Reaction/ Hybrid" or "Blocking/Butterly") that the pad was designed for. "Reaction/Hybrid" pads tend to be more flexible and have more breaks - great for those with a narrow butterfly. "Blocking/Butterfly" pads tend to have fewer breaks and are more rigid - better for goalies with a wider butterfly.|
|Knee Breaks:||Two - Hyperflex 4 (Very Soft)||Breaks in the foam & material of the outer roll. Pads with zero (O) knee breaks tend to be more rigid and have less flex, while pads with one (1) or two (2) knee breaks are "softer" and have more flex built into them.|
|Width:||11 Inches||Width of a single pad measured in inches.|
|External Material:||Synthetic Leather, Nylon||Type of external material.|
|# of Straps:||3||Number of leg attachment straps.|
|Strap Type:||Knee Lock Elastic Strap, Smart Strap Calf Strap, S||Type of attachment strap.|

|BRIAN'S Goal Pad Custom Sizing Guide - SENIOR LEG PADS
|Ankle to Knee
||Stock Pad Size

||38 + 1"
The Key factor is the overall length. The length can be divided into three sections:
B.Instep to knee
C.Knee to top or thigh rise
The proper length of the goal pad boot is determined by the goalie's skate size. The next key area is the instep to knee that determines the shin length. Finally, the knee to top or thigh rise is a personal measurement depending on how much pant and pad overlap the goaltender prefers. A general rule is 7" to 8".
A.Skates size: provide the skate size for proper boot fit.
B.Instep to knee: measure from instep to the front center of kneecap while leg is in slightly bent position.
C. Thigh rise: measure from front center of kneecap up the thigh to desire height.
A + B + C = Estimated size of pad
If fitted properly, the goalie's knee should rest directly behind the center knee roll with the pad securely attached to the goal skate and properly strapped on the goaltender's leg. Generally, this will ensure that the pad breaks (bends) at the knee/shin and ankle as designed for optimal performance.
RATINGS & REVIEWS
Rated 5 out of
Must have for the hybrid
I purchased these a month ago. No break in period required. I love the lightness of these 36+-1's: They butterfly nicely. Very good rebound control- -kick out rebounds to the corners, and provide great coverage for 5 hole. Velcro strapping system is a great feature because of ease of adjustment, retaining consistent adjument, flexibility, and I really like that it reduces dressing time vs the traditional leather strapping system. I use these pads on average 4-5 days a week.

PRODUCT Q & A
on your genetic 11 pads I wear 33 +1 in vaughn 4 will 33 +1 in your pads fit and are you getting in any more..
The ankle to knee will fit about the same, though you might notice that the thigh rise in the Brians is a little bit higher than it would be in a Vaughn. Older model pads are no longer produced and will likely not come back into stock. However, some brands might be able to get you an older pad via the custom ordering process. For more information on that, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

i am having a tough time trying to figure out my size for the brians gnetik 2 pads. from ankle to knee i am 17 in., knee to thigh 8 in., skate size 10 1/2, and i am 6 ft tall. i currently use Bauer RX10 - 37+1
It's tough to say for sure without seeing your knee placement when trying on a new pad. However, you could probably start with a 36 +1 in a Brian's. Brian's typically has a larger standard thigh rise, so the overall length would probably be similar to what you have now. However, whether the pad fits well will be determined by your knee placement.

If I am a 35+1 in the zero g pro stocks what size should I get for the gnetik 2s?
I would recommend going with the same size if they fit.

How durable is the matte material compared to the jenpro and is there a difference in how it reacts when sliding on the ice (does the jenpro slide better)?
The matte (which is basically their bucky material in different colors) is not quite as durable in my experience compared to traditional Jenpro used by the company. Edges and corners will wear a little faster. However, where the puck actually impacts, the material is perfectly fine.

My ATK is 17.5 skate size is 8 and I'm 5'9 wondering what my size in these pads I would most likely need ?
I would say roughly a 34+1, but here is a video on how to get sized properly.

My atk is 18.5 I'm 6'2 and like my pads a tad big I wear a 36+2 p4 and they run a tad small what size would you recommend
For an 18.5 ATK, we'd recommend going with a 36" pad. The thigh rise on these pads tend to run big, so a 36+2 Brian's would actually sit close to an inch taller than a Reebok 36+2. You could go with a +3 if you wanted even more height, but that would make for a really tall thigh rise.

If I got a 1-1-1 flex would it last longer than the 4-4-4 flex or would that not even determine how long the pads will last until they start wearing out and turn at the thigh like my Reebok 18Ks, thank you.
The durability will probably be better in a stiffer pad, but for performance reasons, that would be probably be extremely difficult to break in and use the way you want.

Does the velcro boot strap come with a replaceable leather strap?
I wear my boot strap on the back of my skate (like Lundqvist) and was wondering if I did not like how the velcro felt if I could replace it with a leather strap.
The leather strap is available with the accessories that come with the leg pad.
