Product Description

Vaughn Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon Senior Chest & Arm Protector

 

New for 2018, Vaughn Custom Sports releases the newest creation in their most accomplished Velocity family line, the Vaughn Velocity VE8 XP Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Glove. While keeping the same great success as the V7 XF Pro Carbon, Vaughn was further able to incorporate reinforcements through the unit to increase performance.

Vaughn has kept their lower weight reduction which is 17% lighter compared to its first generation in the V6 2200. As noted above, the VE8 Pro Carbon is based off of the ever popular V7 XF Pro Carbon, one of the most used chest protectors by NHL and Pro level goaltenders.

The body of the VE8 Pro Carbon starts with an Ultralight HD foam with their carbon material reinforcements, ultimately increasing protection and reducing weight. Kevlar Ballistic plates line the stomach to further provides maximum protection in the body. This carbon material reinforcement can be found in the belly pad, shoulder floaters, shoulders caps, stomach wings and biceps. The sternum plate of the unit is also lined with carbon material reinforcements to add extra protection to the heart guard which seats itself under the shoulder floaters for seamless mobility. The shoulder floaters, while still being lined with carbon material, have 4 strategic cuts in them to segment nicely to the goalies body and conform to current NHL specs. Building on top of the popular shoulder design, Vaughn has added “Mrazek” straps which sit directly a top the shoulder floaters and close via a snap design. This new feature allows goalies, who tuck their chest protectors, the ability to run their suspenders directly over top of the floaters. Goalies will find this more comfortable as the suspenders will not fall off the shoulder or roll in tight towards the neck.

Between the body and shoulder floaters are smaller removable/adjustable flaps which the goalie can place to their wants and needs. These flaps help to cover any pucks that might sneak through the body and offer more seamless coverage. Lastly, the rib protection wraps comfortably around the body with seamless edges under the arms to reduce the risk of stingers on the side of the body.

The VE8 Pro Carbon incorporates the use of Velcro attachment points at the shoulder blades, ultimately connecting the shoulder floaters, shoulder caps and spine plate. With these adjustments, the chest protector can be tailored to match the needs and feel of the goalies. Lastly, Vaughn has reengineered the wrist section to give the goalie a better fit when putting their glove and blocker on. The thinner profile allows for a more seamless integration.
