The Vaughn Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Leg Pads are the newest addition to the Velocity family lineup.

The VE8 features similar characteristics and flex as previous velocity models by building upon the successful velocity core.  The strapping system however has been completely revamped for the VE8.

The pad has a single outer roll break, with internal breaks above and below the knee for that flex which will be familiar to Velocity users. The face of the pad features flattened knee rolls which assist with the overall vertical and torsional flex of the pad.

For additional stiffness, Vaughn have used a Carbon layer running the entire length VE8 Pro Carbon pads. 

The new angular graphic is eye catching for goalie gear nerds when watching games, but it has also been designed to be visually distracting to the shooter. The theory being that the large breaks within the lines appear to be almost like netting.

The largest update to these pads over previous Velocity pads is within the leg channel and the strapping system across the calf. Vaughn implemented 2 elastic straps with magnets replacing the buckles to increase the speed of getting the pad on/off but also reducing overall weight. The buckles rotate on the outside buckle so any interference is now removed because of the freedom the buckles have. This new buckle system is used on the boot strap as well, enabling you to achieve a super dialled in fit with a simple on/off function.

Continuing on the success of the RRC strap (Reactive Rotation Control), Vaughn has redesigned this upper calf strap with more elastic to create more stretch on the leg. They did remove the magnetic buckle and replaced it with Velcro on elastic for better durability. For those who do not like the RRC strap or a tight fit, this strap is 100% removable to create a looser feeling on the leg.

A thin outer gusset on these pads enables you to get better pant/pad integration when going in to the butterfly. This thinner outer gusset also helps reduce the weight of the pad which ultimately keeps your body less fatigued. Within the knee cradle, Vaughn has reengineered the way the knee cradle is put together and the amount of options you have for the knee Velcro strap. The knee lander and knee block have full Velcro to give a nice solid landing block to give the best a stable feeling when down. The outer knee flap is also fully removable so for goalies like to angle their knee Velcro knee lock down to the calf, you can unlace the outer flap to create a seamless and smooth rotation.

Lastly, Vaughn has created a slightly larger calf wrap to fully encompass the leg into the pad. The wrap runs from below the knee to the top of the goalie skate, but has a segment which wraps directly behind the leg to give ultimate protection and closure into the pad. This segment is finished off with a large Velcro double back strap, similar to what was found on the RRC upper calf strap.

Comparing the various Velocity pads, the VE8 Pro Carbon leg pads will feature a higher quality range of materials and also a North American build.
