VAUGHN VENTUS SLR3 PRO CARBON GOAL PADS
Further optimized for the changing game, the SLR3 Pro Carbon features a Pure Composite core, QuickSlide, an L-shape profile, and a tapered stiffness profile. This list barely scratches the surface—Vaughn really went above and beyond to enhance their SLR2 to fit all goalies of all sizes, with even more custom options available for those who prefer different tech. These pads are ideal for butterfly and hybrid goalies.
The pads are made of jenpro material on the outside and have more of an L-shape profile compared to the SLR2, which was more S-shaped. Vaughn reintroduced their highly favoured QuickSlide along the inner surface of their pads for this iteration. QuickSlide is renowned among many high-level goalies as having some of the fastest slide in the game.
Vaughn added a Pure Composite core, and when combined with carbon fibre layering, it gives the pads a firmer perimeter and unparalleled pop on the rebounds. The stiffness has been redistributed to accommodate taller goalies who may have had some blocking challenges with the softer SLR2. At retail, the SLR3 is constructed to be stiffer at the top above the knee roll and more flexible near the boot.
