Designed to provide maximum net coverage, the Vaughn XR Pro Carbon catch glove is sure to keep the larceny going all game long.
A completely new design has been utilized for the V7 XR catcher. The one-piece design is certainly something that isn’t new to the goalie world, but the design itself is made to create the largest catching surface possible. The cuff box is smaller than most, giving Vaughn the ability to create a catching face that can take up an amazing amount of space while still being legal. The glove has a very wide-open design, allowing it to cover as much net as possible with the benefit of still being able to trap the puck. The single-T web gives the glove excellent feel for the puck, and the pocket itself is gargantuan.
The result of the geometry of the glove is a closure heavily sided on the fingers. Supplementary to the geometry is the lightness of the glove. Vaughn has utilized more carbon fiber in this glove than past models to provide unmatched performance while keeping the glove light. Carbon fiber lines the finger-edge and palm of the catching face for improved stiffness and protection when facing impacts. The vertical T-bar also has a carbon reinforcement to improve the strength of the perimeter of the glove. Carbon fiber has also been utilized on the back of the thumb to provide improved protection and lighter weight.
The inside of the glove is familiar to any who have used Vaughn in the past. The strapping system features the common wrist/backhand/fingers design, and the internal lining utilizes a grip material to give you better leverage over the glove and to help you maintain control as your hand sweats.
The XR Pro Carbon glove is fully customizable and is available in the new V7 graphic, and Diamond Stitch graphic, or the Vintage graphic.

Keys to a Proper Fit:
- The goalie's fingers should extend out to the end of the finger stalls of the inside palm to ensure a proper fit. However, any more than 1/2" from the tip of the goaltender's finger to the end of the finger stall and the goaltender will not have the leverage needed to properly close and control the glove.
- The heel of your hand should line up with the heel and cuff of the catcher. If not, the proper balance between the cuff and catching portion of the glove may be disturbed, making the glove too cumbersome while sacrificing protection.
