It says there is a “Stabiliflex” knee block

The “Stabiflex” is the the same as the Ultrasonic in terms of integration into the pad but it has a 25% give hence the “flex”

Lol.  It’s all marketing bs.  Would love to see true science/data to prove this 25% flex.  One could argue the ultrasonic has 25% flex if you press hard enough on it.

Sounds interesting to me especially because it means I was right. Ultrasonic knee block stiffness should not be on a “flexible” pad like Vapor. Stabilislide makes a leg pad feel super boxy

Sounds like it's just a regular old knee block with a term thrown on it to distinguish it?

Kind of like how "CoverEdge+" on Warrior basically means they made the gear thicker lol

Which brand is the most obnoxious about their tech naming?

It's gotta be Warrior right?

"Ultrasonic" is pretty cheesy.  I just love all the tech names for foam and fabric.

It sounds like a Philips electric toothbrush

Honestly I think this bullshit all started with the P4

I don't disagree that most of the naming is brutal. Also looks cheesy AF to have it embroidered on the gear at the store. #ProLogosWhenOrderingVaughn

However, the number one thing people don't consider is why this stuff happens? The companies try to make sure that consumers walk into goalie monkey who know nothing about the gear and clean leave understanding why their product is better than the competitors.

By naming the technology and labeling on the gear, they hope this helps the battle. The pad is the core. You can't see the core. It's hard to market the changes under the hood.

This is in pretty much all product marketing these days unfortunately, not just hockey gear. Ford's "Sync" technology or "PowerBoost" V6 engine, Apple's "Lightning" charging accessories, "cold-filtered" beer from Coors, etc. It's all meaningless marketing-speak.

Anyone ordering anything? Was just messing around with the customizer. I like this graphic way more than Ultrasonic.

This is the graphic I will go with once I figure out exactly which specs I want. I agree that it is a lot better than the UltraSonic graphic.
