Vaughn SLR 2

Recommended Posts

I wear top end Ritual knee pads with the long, fairly rigid lower knee segment and I was noticing the professor strap interacting with it, for sure.  To be fair, I have only skated with my new pads and not played hockey yet (long story), but it was in the same part of my leg and interacting.  I found the strap itself to be annoying short and could have used a some more elastic with these particular knee pads.

One thing I noticed with this strap is that it made the my pads sit up higher/taller.  I wasn't really aware that that was an intent of the strap, but it makes perfect sense.

Good to know. My knee pads the the ritual's that came with my R/GT's, so essentially the same. I like the idea of the professor strap, but the potential interference has me questioning whether or not getting a SLR pad would work for me or not.

Yeah, I feel like the bottom segment of Ritual knee pads is particularly long and the professor strap is just north of the top of the calf.

I wear socks over my knee pads and I lengthened the RRC strap on my PVE’s. I haven’t had any issues with them catching in each other.

I ended up ordering a pair of PVEs since I couldn’t justify the extra $500 for the SLRs so I will report how they work with the vapor knee pads once I get them.

Never liked Vaughn much but I was first drawn to the SLR’s. I would’ve switched but picked Bauer due to the sliding surface. This is seriously an improvement and will definitely be my next set

The pads look very similar to Optiks with the primo material on the sliding surface and the thin outer roll; I wonder how they will compare.

Any word on if Vaughn will do a PVE 2? SLR2 strapping, VE8 pad, new Quick graphic. That would be magical!

Believe there’s a chance that Quick’s graphic will be the updated PVE 2 and exclusive to Goalie Monkey

I’m not sure why this is but if you look at the screws that hold the toe bridge on they are different colors. My senior goalie had a set of Vaughn V7 XF’s and the little leather washer like part under the screw was colored to match the color in that zone but there is no color difference here... so any reason why this could be?

I had a look at the product, and it was essentially the SLR with Brian's primo on the sliding edge. There are of course other small changes but nothing that much different. 

They decided to use flex toes which I think is a horrible idea, given how the original flex toes had the propensity to break/snap.

iono, it didn't make me very excited. Not even nearly as much as I was with the E-flex4. 

Kinda MEH in general.

Lighting.  I've taken pictures of my gear where one screw looked like a different color than the rest.

If no break is stock, will there still be an option to have a break?

if you go custom, yes. you can get no breaks, single or double

I believe basic custom is the same price as retail. Basic custom would include things like size, colors, changing breaks or flex points, and possibly changing the straps a bit. Things like custom graphic, custom or non-stock leg channels, embroidery etc will lead to upcharges that vary depending on the request. (speaking mainly on Vaughn as CCM has custom options but you cannot go outside those limitations.)

what @AG37 said is correct- basic custom options like breaks are not going to provide an upcharge

CCM has a great customizer from this bc things like custom strapping (by custom i mean not retail/stock) aren't upcharges. You wont get a 1 off pad that u could get from Brians but it seems to have something for everyone

Has anyone been told that the slr's run slightly larger?  For example, I was at a retail store looking at mainly 34+1s.  I'm currently in a 34+2.  When i tried on the SLRs, they told me it runs a little large, and i should try the 33+2.  I did, and honestly it felt like the right size.  Wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience with the SLR in particular and if the same applies to the SLR2.

If you're referring to velocity, you're right. I fit a 34+x velocity just fine, but I'm a 33+x in SLR / Warrior / CCM / Bauer / Brians

There could be some geometry changes to the boot that would make the new ones larger, as is the case with VE8 Velocity pads. 

I'm ideally a half size between a 35 and 36, at least historically with Velocity pads that settle.  I had my sales rep and Vaughn tell me I could be in a 34 with current models.

Seems like they've calibrated sizes on current model stuff to be bigger than in previous generations.

My 36 V6 pads match perfectly to my 35 VE8 pads.

Interesting.  I'd like to see the same size side by side in SLR 1 and 2.
