Roller hockey is great for those skaters that like to go out and dangle and not worry about being lined up. Every great part of ice hockey has been added to roller... but goaltending is a different story. Sliding from post-to-post can be more difficult for a goaltender than watching a Wayne Gretzky highlight video.
Mission says no more heartache for goalies. The Mission Slyde Series Leg Pads feature Slyde construction on the inside knee, shin and boot gussets. Slyde is a slick, hard plastic material integrated into the pad, that moves with you along the floor, allowing you to slide further and quicker each time you need lateral movement. Basically, these pads give you that ice hockey feel and slide to get you moving at the pace at which you want to be.
Adding to the easy sliding movement is the lightweight, butterfly construction. The square and thin profile with a tapered toe makes your regular stance feel more natural, letting you drop with an easier feel.
The Adjustable Knee Lock (AKL) lets you customize how locked-in your knees are at all times. The top straps are also adjustable, letting you choose your own fit and closure. How your pads feel when strapped to your legs is totally up to you.
An integrated under-pant thigh protector rounds out the Slyde Leg Pads. This gives you extra protection in what has been a problem area for goaltenders in the past. Worrying about dropping to the butterfly and taking one to the top of the knee is a thing of the past.
The weakest part of most roller hockey goalies is when they are moving side-to-side in the crease. Now watch yourself go side - to Slyde - to side faster than ever.
