The G-NETiK line from Brian's has been an extremely popular pad in the past and now it is available in the the new Brian's GNetik 5.0 Leg Pad in 2014. Like the G-NETiK Pro, the 5.0 comes standard with flat knee rolls and a square, double-break outer roll. The thigh rise is a little thinner to save weight and allow for easy movement. An 80 degree toe taper keeps the bottom of the pad square, while allowing clearance for your skate to push off from any position. Soft breaks at the boot, as well as both above and below the knee work together to make the G-NETiK 5.0 flex with the goalie's leg. The cushioned nylon leg channel is wide for easy pad rotation, and it features extended calf wings that wrap around the leg for complete protection. Just like the G-NETiK Pro, the 5.0 is built to use either the Smart Strap system, or traditional straps system (sold separately).

Pad Style:Reaction / HybridThe 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:2Breaks 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:10.5 InchesWidth of a single pad measured in inches.
External Material:MicrofiberType of external material.
Strap Type:Elastic Smart Strap w/ Options for Leather StrapsType of attachment strap.
Adjustable Straps:YesDoes the leg pad have straps that can be easily moved or replaced
Thigh Protection:NoneType of upper leg protection.
Toe Attachment Type:Toe TiesType of piece that attaches the pad to the toe of the skate.
Made In:PhillipinesCountry of origin.
Warranty:One Year LimitedPeriod of time the product is covered under a manufacturer's warranty.

Brian's utilizes an "Ankle to Knee" fit guide to determine the proper leg pad size to meet your needs.  To determine your "Ankle to Knee" measurement, first measure the distance from either ankle bone to the middle of the knee cap, straight up, knees slightly bent.  Next, determine the desired height of your pad on your thigh, then measure from the center of your knee cap to this point.  Finally, determine your skate size.  Find these measurement in the chart below, then look at the pad size on the left hand size of the chart to find your pad size.

If fitted properly, the goalie's knee should rest in the center of the knee cradle 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from never buying reeboks agian! these pads re the best pads ever,i came from a reebok 18k leg pads and its been better ever since. There isn't any binding around the the knee stack or the calf and it makes slides much faster and the last longer then the p4s. the pads are super light and when i go down in the butterfly,the pad rotates well. One odd thing is when going on one knee,the pad will make a squeak sound. The thy rise is a few inches bigger than a normal plus 1 and having it squared off makes a really good seal to the ice. Overall,this pads is worth the money and a lot better than reeboks and the coolest thing a bout this pad in there is no leather straps!(besides the boot)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Slider! I purchased a set of the 5.0's for my 13 year old son right after he gave them a test drive at the local Total Hockey goalie demo days. My son tried on and tested several other pads that day (Bauers, Warriors & CCMs). The 5.0's were the ones that put a smile on his face and a, "Dad these are the ones!" response from him. Brian makes a very good - no, check that - an EXCELLENT pad. These 5.0's were the best sliding and lightest pad he wore that day. My son's goalie coach has mentioned on how his sliding has improved with the 5.0's. He is coming off a set of Reebok's. Brian's Smart Strap is not a gimick, my son loves it. Couple this with Brian's durability and you got one heck of pad. The only con that I have is the graphic, I think it is out dated and too busy. Something cleaner and simplier would make me happy, but my son likes it. Go figure. The 5.0's may not be the cheapest pad out there, but they are the best vaule out there.

quick size question.

What is one size up from a reebok p4 30+1 in brians pads?
Asked by: Heipfam
Typically Reebok/CCM is a size larger than other manufacturers so if your looking to go up a size in a Brians, your going to probably be a 30+1

C Price Strapping

My son is currently wearing P4 Reeboks and he uses a Carey Price strapping position on the elastic strap for the knee cradle, due to large knee pads. Can the 5.0's accomadate this type of strap position?
Asked by: Heipfam
Yes, because the Velcro on the calf wrap runs so high up that you can attach the knee Velcro down to the outside calf. Very similar to the "Carey Price" knee velcro strapping.

thigh rise.

i have a reebok premier 4 pad and the thigh rise is a little small is the thigh rise on this pad bigger than a p4 leg pad? (its +1)
Asked by: Heipfam
I'd say the GNETiK thigh rise is a but taller than the P4. It is not a very significant difference.
