Brian's Gear

Recommended Posts

Is the Optik replacing both the Gnetik and SZ? Looks like they're tying both style of pads together and offering options to customize it either way.

Does this make their pad releases every two years instead of every year?

So... I've been on the fence about releasing this, but the website is where "all the good stuff" will be. Instagram is about providing website traffic... 

I am very pleased to announce that we are receiving early access to Optik for review purposes. These will NOT be provided for free. I believe in transparency and will always note if gear was provided for free. 

All red

35+1.5 

Fly Core Profile 

Pretty much stock...

There is a call scheduled with Brian's today. 

New primo colors is something I can ask about. 

Anything else?

TGN when are going to get the skinny on your call with Brians?

I forgot to ask, my bad! I know red is available, haha 

I can confirm next week

@Big2 in regards to the BOA, I'm pretty it's on all new models moving forward. If someone custom ordered a GNetik after the release of Optik, I bet Brian's would accommodate the BOA

I know this will not be addressed. Right now the focus is on Optik. It's available in 2 pad cores and that should address anyone looking to Replace an SZ or GNetik this year

Hey guys.. 

To answer a couple questions..
We are working on ordering a few more primo colors... it was a tough push to get the primo stock on the sliding surface this year but management finally agreed... it has been a great mod on the gusset and greatly improves sliding... however compared to other materials its very expensive and adds a lot of expense to the goal pads, believe it or not. 

Also, we believed that this line was so great, we wanted to offer it to every style, not just "SZ3" / Butterfly goalies... so that is why we offered 2 options.. although, it leads to what will we do in the future... this year the SubZero3 will phase out.. next year we are going to meet and discuss next week. Our biggest concern with this line was that retailers were going to be mad about the OPTIK killing both SZ3 and G-NETIk sales/investment, but we were overwhelmingly surprised there was very little push back and they understood our thought process.

What is the defender material?

It's one of the non jenpro materials. I can't remember if it's like cordura or the side gusset nylon 

Where on the pad is it?

Its a type of nylon though?

Yes, it's one of the materials for non sliding areas. It won't look like leather

The goalie in the game after mine tonight had some nice swag. This was in Newington, CT in the CHL. 

Are you a member on here swag man?

After being pressured by @SaveByRichter35, I guess I'll post my recent order at Players Bench, in Prince George, BC. 

Colours: Silver is weave, powder blue is weave, middle dart is black weave, outer roll dashes (colour 5 on customizer) is black weave. The rest is matte black.

Pads:

  • 34+1" (Skate size = 8.5, 17.2 ATK, 10" thigh)
  • 84 degree toe taper
  • FLX core
  • soft boot
  • the rest is stock (smart strap, smart toe, smart boot strap)

Blocker

  • BOA strapping

Catcher:

  • BOA strapping
  • Double T (requested no Thief eyes, just OPTIK logo)
  • Black skate lace pocket
  • game ready palm

Ordered the 84 degree boot, because I tried on GN3TIK's with the same boot, and loved the seal, without tripping me up. Left everything else stock, because it sounds like everything I want in a pad/glove set. Black primo on the inside sliding area and toe binding, as well.

 

Only 8 weeks to go...
