The Bauer Supreme TOTALONE NXG leg pad is a butterfly goalie's dream pad. Every design feature of the pad's predecessor, the Supreme TOTALONE, has been examined - and oftentimes updated - to make the new NXG a better performing, more light weight pad.
Like the older TOTALONE, the NXG features a flat-faced front with a triangular outer roll to help save weight, and also direct pucks downward to the ice upon impact. The profile has been made more straight, and Bauer has removed the MyFlex custom pad break system in favor of a stiff "Regulated Flex" breaks both above and below the knee. The boot break, however, has been made softer vertically to allow the goalie's ankle to move easily and freely when pushing, or when directing rebounds away from the net. The lateral (or torsional) flex of the boot is fairly stiff to keep the boot from twisting over time. Finally, the inside edge of the pad has been made thin, and hard HD foams enhance the pad's sliding performance and seal to the ice.
The "Adjustable Knee Lock" feature of the TOTALONE has been replaced by a wider, sewn in knee cradle in the NXG. The backing and shortened outer knee lock flap are lined with nylon for easy pad rotation, and the larger inner padding is made with PORON XRD foam for protection and extreme comfort. The landing block at the knee features Bauer's "TOTALseal" design, which moves it 1/2" from the inside seam of the pads, and therefore 1/2 closer to the goalie's knee. By keeping this pad closer to your knee, the goalie can more quickly and forcefully drive the pad downward to the ice when going into the butterfly, which creates a quicker and tighter seal to the ice.
The wide, shallow leg channel is lined with nylon and it is flanked by two "Reactor-style" nylon calf wraps. One the innermost calf wrap you'll find a 1" thick LD foam pad that is sewn onto the outside of the flap. This pad takes up any negative space between the innermost and outermost calf wraps, and is also helps drive the pad downward towards the ice when going into the butterfly position. The boot channel has a medium depth to it, and a triangular toe tie piece comes standard.
