The Bauer Supreme One90 leg pads are the Senior Pro version of the new Supreme TotalONE leg pads, and they share many of the same design characteristics.
For starters, the One90 gives the goalie the ability the "personally" adjust the custom flex of the goal pad to adapt to any style of play. The leg pads utilitze a unique "MyFLEX" system - molded flex inserts that fit into pre-formed channels inside the foam body of the pads. The flex inserts come in two different stiffnesses - medium (yellow) and hard (black). By inserting the desired flex insert into the channels both above and below the knee (or by not inserting the flex inserts at all), the goalie can achieve up to 9 different flex configurations for a personalized fit.
Also new to the Supreme One90 pad is the re-designed knee lock, which is based off of the popular Adjustable Knee Lock (AKL) design of the previous Supreme line. Like the older Supreme knee lock, the knee lock on the One90 is attached with heavy duty velcro and can be moved approximately one (1) inch in any given direction for a customized fit.
The leg channel is wide and has a medium depth to it. The inside calf padding features a 1" thick low density foam pillow, which can be removed if desired. The boot strap can be placed in two different locations on the inner boot scoop, and the calf straps are easily replaceable as well. The thigh straps and buckles are made of nylon webbing, and these can be moved to different strap locations both at and above the knee.

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.
