PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Premier X28 is a flat faced pad with a solid outer knee roll, and the stock version comes with a nice, pre-curved double break core - internal foam breaks both above and below the kneewhich help give the pad more flex than you would anticipate in a pad with a solid outer roll.  Additionally, the internal pad foam mold has a softer "FLEXCORE" boot break built in, which is great for goalies who want more flex in the ankle.

The knee lock has been modified in the X28 to include Reebok's  "MAXCOVERAGE" design.  On the inside of the knee, this design features a wider, thicker knee raiser which provides a more stable landing platform while going into the butterfly, as well as an additional blocking surface when going into your knees together/ankles together "Giggy-fly" when blocking five hole shots.  On the outside of the knee, the outermost knee cradle flap has been significantly shortened, and a new, additional knee lock strap postion at the top of the outside calf flap can create an extremely wide, extremely loose fitting knee setup.  By opening up the knee, the pad is allowed to slide towards the inside of the goalies leg, which presents a smaller five hole to the shooter.  Goalies who like a traditional set up can also attach the knee lock strap to the outer knee lock flap, which holds the knee more tightly to the pad.

On the inside edge of the pad, the calf position has been moved forward and includes a 1/2" HD foam "SOLIDSEAL"  pad to provide a more stable butterfly platform, as well as an additional blocking surface on the ice.  At the knee, the traditional straps that run outside and over the top of the knee raisers have now been run through channels in the knee raiser itself.  By moving the strap position, the straps are kept from pulling the thigh rise up off of the ice when going into the butterfly.  Combined with the SOLIDSEAL calf wrap, both of these features give the pad a complete seal to the ice in the butterfly.

  • Shallow / Soft leg & boot channel design
  • Loose Fit 2 calf straps for a tighter seal to the post
  • Soft foam comfort knee cradle
  • High Density / Low Density foam core for a balanced weight design
  • EPE foam solid knee raiser for incredible pad seal
  • Legal thigh protector comes standard

SIZE CHART

Reebok utilizes a "Floor to Knee" fit guide to determine the proper leg pad size to meet your needs.  To determine your "Floor to Knee" measurement, measure the distance from the floor (in bare feet) to the middle of the knee cap, straight up, knees slightly bent.  Find this measurement in the chart below, then look at the number above it to find your pad size.

If fitted properly, the goalie's knee should rest in the center of the knee cradle 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.
