PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Vaughn 7100 is a great "first pad" for the beginning goalie, as it has great protection and many of the attributes of more advanced pad at a beginer level price.  New goalies ages 5-7, or smaller goalies who are just starting out will be glad that they chose the 7100.

The 7100 has HD foam in both the internals of the pad, and also in the outer roll.  This foam acts to keep the pad rigid, and helps it retain it's shape and minimize twist.  Some youth model pads use lower density foams which both compress over time, and allow the pads to twist out of shape.  The boot break in the pad is very flexible, and the boot scoop is also tapered on the inside.  The soft boot allows the goalies ankle to move more freely while attached to the pad, and the tapered boot allows the goalie to keep the inside edge of his skate blade on the ice while striding or pushing off.  Traditional knee rolls and Vaughn's popular Tribal graphic - the same graphic that the NHL goalies wear - complete the look of the pad face.

The interior of the pad features a deep knee lock and boot channel to keep the pad square on the young goalie's leg.  The knee is secured in place by a large velcro strap that sits across to pieces of LD foam that flank the leg, and next to this knee lock (on the inside of the leg) is a large LD foam block.  Together, these pieces will hold the pad in place, and they will also protect the knee against impacts on the ice when going into a butterfly position.  One leather boot strap holds the pad to the skate, and nylon straps with plastic clips run up the leg so that even the least experienced goalie can attach the pads easily.

Additional features include:

  • Velocity style tribal graphics
  • Padded adjustable knee cradle keeps you properly positioned
  • Inside edge knee, calf and ankle protection allow for spirited play
  • Available in White/Black/Silver color only (as shown)
  • All sizes are plus 1 sizing with tall thigh length

SIZE CHART

The Key factor is the overall length. The length can be divided into three sections:

A.The boot

B.Instep to knee

C.Knee to top or thigh rise

The proper length of the goal pad boot is determined by the goalie's skate size. The next key area is the instep to knee that determines the shin length. Finally, the knee to top or thigh rise is a personal measurement depending on how much pant and pad overlap the goaltender prefers. A general rule is 7" to 8".

A.Skates size: provide the skate size for proper boot fit.

B.Instep to knee: measure from instep to the front center of kneecap while leg is in slightly bent position.

C. Thigh rise: measure from front center of kneecap up the thigh to desire height.

A + B + C = Estimated size of pad

If fitted properly, the goalie's knee should rest directly behind the center knee roll 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.
