From memory, I don't think 90% of goalies knew the Lefevre split was coming? Bernier's pad had nothing to do with Axis, just coincidence they looked similar. Lefevre and CCM were already going their own separate ways by the time that pad was built.
Bernier's pads were literally a EFlex without at the knee rolls, the X Stiff (pro only core), and, I believe. Max rebound foam. They didn't have the new core material of the Axis, they didn't have the hardened inner edge, they didn't have the molded calf wrap, they didn't have the new face material.
