The LT90 Ventus chest & arm was an excellent unit for goalies seeking both great coverage and mobility. The new LT98 Ventus chest protector continues what the LT90 did and even adds some upgrades to make it a truly premier unit for professional level protection. The shoulder floaters have been squared off and contain a large air cushion underneath, which adjusts position via Velcro to give goalies the ability to customize their protection. Two more layers of shoulder pads reside under the floaters and air cushions, ensuring goalie safety without hindering arm movement.
The front of the LT98 has changed slightly from the old LT90 to offer more flexibility to goalies. The belly padding is now a large flap composed of six HD foam segments. This large cluster of HD foam segments is attached to the pad with adjustable elastic straps to give excellent flexibility and customizability, allowing goalies to alter how flexible their chest protector is. More HD foam segments wrap around the side of the body to give further protection. The sternum plate has been shortened and reinforced with carbon fiber on the LT98, reducing the weight of the unit and maximizing the protective qualities of the LT98
The arms utilize wide plastic caps covered with HD foams to provide incredible coverage while making this unit impenetrable to pucks. The mid-arm floaters are constructed to provide mobility while keeping goalies safe with HD foam padding. New on the LT98 is a pad on the back of the wrist. This is designed to provide extra protection to the glove side so goalies never have to experience a stray shot finding skin underneath the glove cuff.
