With an ultra light pro spec construction, the Crease 200 Goalie Leg Pads have an outer spoiler wedge which provides the illusion of a wider pad and gives the goalie more effective rebound control. Using SURGEX technology, the Crease 200 knee system provides customized fit and full range of motion, while full flat face construction allows for maximum blocking area.
In addition, the plus 1" sizing helps seal off the 5 hole and with its hybrid style, the Crease 200 gives you the flexiblity you need to stop the puck.
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.
