PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Designed for the intermediate goal tender, the Vaughn 7490i Velocity Goalie Catch Glove starts with the proven Velocity design and improves key features to provide more comfort, control, and performance.  The glove is an Intermediate sized catcher - a smaller version of the 7490 catch glove for younger goalies or those with smaller hands. 

New for 2012, the 7490i has a lace break palm for improved closure and break in.  Extra padding in the palm area has been added for greater protection against stingers, and like all Vaughn catch gloves the 7490i is heat moldable for quick break in and a custom closure.  Additionally, the internal padding of the glove has been reconfigured to the new V5 style which improves both fit an closure. 

  • Designed with a deep contoured catching surface and a new wider palm area to give more depth and surface area to the glove
  • Offset T-web pocket with skate lace lacing provides a larger pocket area and improved puck retention
  • Reinforcement along the top of the T-Web provides extra support along the top perimeter edge
  • Top cuff and thumb with molded deflecting ramp limit puck skip over and provide added stability in the top edge of the glove
  • New internal hand design gives a more vertical thumb angle and hand position
  • Dual adjustable straps over the fingers and back hand provide added security and custom adjustment
  • New anchored wrist strap for an even tighter fit and adjustment around the wrist
  • Wide cuff opening provides added room for increased wrist movement and performance
  • Three piece back hand protection with HD foams with deflector ramp over the fingers to deflect impacts away from the ends of the finger tips
  • Pre-Formed shape with flex seams on internal padding for game ready feel from day 1
  • Heat moldable for a customizable hand fit

Keys to a Proper Fit:

  • The goalie's fingers should extend out to the end of the finger stalls of the inside palm to ensure a proper fit. However, any more than 1/2" from the tip of the goaltender's finger to the end of the finger stall and the goaltender will not have the leverage needed to properly close and control the glove.
     
  • The heel of your hand should line up with the heel and cuff of the catcher. If not, the proper balance between the cuff and catching portion of the glove may be disturbed, making the glove too cumbersome while sacrificing protection.
