The T100-MB30 Leg Pad is a flexible pad designed for the Reaction or Hybrid goalie looking for a softer, more flexible pad. The MB30 fits more like a traditional pad in that the leg and boot channels are deeper to allow for a snug fit to the leg and foot. Goalies who like wearing a pad that fits closely to his/her leg will love the MB30.
The pad face is constructed of softer, high density LD foams to help keep pucks closer to the goalie upon impact. Knee rolls, outer roll breaks both above and below the knee, and a softer boot break give the pad great flexibility.
The knee cradle and leg channel are wide enough to allow for great pad rotation, yet deep enough to allow for a snug fit. An offset boot channel and toe tie allow the goalie to recover quickly to his or her skates from the butterfly position, and they allow for a wider stance if desired. The wide inner knee cradle is great for goalies who wear additional knee protection under the pants.

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