20.2 x Px3 - A Photo Essay

Px3s arrived about a month ago.  I haven't been able to skate yet as I've been rehabbing an injury

Slow work day today so I thought I'd post some SxS pics with random thoughts.

Fronts -

  • Both pads are base size 32. 
  • 20.2s on the left are +3, Px3 is +2.5
  • Px3 is slightly in the foreground and the tops haven't really curved yet so, but its really weird to me that Lefevre's "flex" option still seems to present stiffer and squarer

Backs -

  •  Left side on picture below shows the right leg of the Px3
  • Right side is the 20.2
  • Notice the difference in the FRS

Boots -

  • I realize now I didn't get a very good picture of this.
  • 20.2 is back on the left here.  Notice the cord binding the pad veers off to the right, I'm guessing this is to help keep the inside portion of the boot bound in place and flat.
  • Px3 has a discernable concavity to the boot channel.  20.2 is pretty flat
  • I think there's benefits re: having a thicker instep on the boot when you're in the butterfly

Thigh Rise

  • This was kind of marketed as the killer feature this year
  • 20.2 measures around 2-3/8" thick
  • Px3 slimmed it down to roughly 1-5/8"
    Both the outer roll and the thigh rise taper down as you get to the top of the pad
    As you get closer to the below-knee break we get back to standard outer roll thickness

Sliding Surface

  • Mistakes were made when ordering (see the white nylon calf wrap on the Px3 on left)
  • This SxS pic really shows you how much slimmer the top of the thigh is on Px3
  • Sidebar, the PPF on the 20.2 here is a year old and still going strong
  • Notice the Px3 flares out at the bottom of the shin and is noticeably thicker along the boot instep

Gloves

  • Another mistake here, I forgot to change to skate lace.
  • Single T on Px3 (top) vs double T on 20.2 (below)
  • Either the single T or the traditional cord seems to hold the T shape better

Does the concavity of the boot channel offset the thicker boot on the PX3? Otherwise, it looks like the below knee break on the PX3 is higher up (i.e. the knee block is higher) than on the 20.2. I actually ordered mine down a size based on conversations with the folks at TGC and from these pictures it looks like that was a good idea.

Not really, boot channel is about 1/2" deeper than the rest of the bottom of the pad

Shin length should be the same across both lines but i took another 1/2" off the thigh rise due to how much stiffer these are above the knee.

I have no complaints moving to a shorter shin - been in a 33" since Koho 560 through EFlex 4 and dropped to a 32" when the 20.1 came out

Thank you for the pics and comparisons!  I have 5 skates on my PX3 and am loving them.
