The 2 biggest changes to the Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads are the removal of the external break, and the addition of the new QuickSlide Technology. When looking at the face of the pad, the SLR Pro Carbon featured a single external break below the knee along with a tradition square outside roll. The SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads feature a new solid outside roll with no external breaks, as well as a new beveled profile shape to both reduce weight and provide optimal coverage. The new solid outside roll is complimented by high performance carbon fiber internal and new flex profile featuring a pre-shaped curved upper for precise fit and improved 5-hole closure.
The Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads now feature a new inside edge sliding surface with QuickSlide Technology. As many goalie companies compete to create a faster sliding leg pad, Vaughn has both added a new material, and improved design to the inside sliding edge. The QuickSlide technology includes a new high-grade material that is both durable and provides more speed on the ice, as well as the new internals on the flattened inner edge that have been stiffened with a composite core for improved seal. With the new QuickSlide Technology the Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads are Vaughn’s fastest sliding pads to date.
With the extreme popularity of the strapping on the Ventus SLR leg pads, the SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads was able to improve upon without sacrificing the core elements of what made that strapping so great. First, the pieces of the strapping system that remained are the angled knee cradle, RRC strap, and hybrid bootstrap. The new editions to the strapping on the SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads are the new bungee toe system, and the new dual calf adjustments. The RRC with magnetic buckle has proved to be one of the most popular strap options in the industry and for that reason remained unchanged on the SLR2 Pro Carbon. This strap hugs top of the goalie’s calf to both react to movements as well as provide optimal rotation. The new bungee toe system is a shock cord with plastic clips that attach to each other, reducing the pull on a goalie’s hips while in the butterfly without sacrificing rotational aspects. Finally, the dual calf adjustments allow for complete control over two areas of the leg pad instead of just one with Velcro straps placed in the middle and bottom of the calf channel.
Moving from the straps to the calf and leg channel, the Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads feature a new calf wrap that provides complete coverage. The new contoured back leg padding wraps around the top of the calf down to the middle calf strap providing complete coverage that does not hinder movements. The Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon leg pads feature a clean line graphic with plenty of zones for customization.
