For some reason these pads are taking me back to my childhood. I’m getting this “Masters of the Universe/ Voltron” feeling.

Duuuuuuuuude...I kinda get what you're saying here.

@TheGoalNet @Brians_Joz

Will Brian's change the knee cradle area on a custom order?  All nylon instead of whatever fabric that is?  Also adding extra padding to the knee cradle as I don't wear knee pads, so I like to have it fairly snug and soft.

Yes, I believe so. 

On TGN Spec X Optik, I changed from nylon to SBA Grip on the knee landing. 

On this version, I am getting on the part that touches your knee cap and SBa Grip on the landing piece only

Having a read back through this thread I've realised that the new strapping on the IV's is similar to the mod I did on my Gnetik2's when I first got them. I re-routed the smart strap through the leather strap attachments on the outer wing (instead of round the internal calf pillow as is / was stock) to give more room in the leg channel:

What's with the varying location of where the knee stack elastic exits the knee stack? @Adam Cooper's pic from above shows outside of the stack as do some of the pictures on Brian's website and IG. Yet on the same website and IG they show where it exists through the stack. (Last one in red is obviously a custom spec.)

Wow. It’s amazing what a difference  some subtle 3D depth to the design and texture can make. I have to be honest I wasn’t a huge fan of the design as it appeared “on paper” but the final cut-and-sew product looks awesome. Wouldn’t have looked nearly as good if done as a printed graphic.

Well done!!! +1 on those horizontal breaks. Simple concept but the contrast in texture really looks incredible against the flat pad. It’s same reason why we all love the look of the visable knee rolls, straps, etc. on vintage.

The way they match the new Smart Cord with the set is a VERY nice touch.

When's the Youtube video out? Brian's/Goalie outlets haven't really posted much on the GenIVs, so it would be nice to hear their new features/direct comparisons to Opt1k on top of TGN spec stuff.

The details in this are amazing, especially in that gold stripe. The Brian’s logos are strangely placed to me though.

Where would you put the logos?

With a graphic like this it was a challenge and they got moved a few times. It's basically in the same spot on every piece, no? A few people have said this and it's not comments I had intended. I get the iron man comparison.

For me I don't love them being on 2 different materials as it kind of breaks up the lines of the graphic. I don't really have any better ideas and until someone said something I didn't even notice as I was too busy drooling over how beautiful the set looks as a whole.
