New to 2017, the Brian’s OPTIK series will be featuring a truly innovative design for their catcher and blocker– the BOA system.
Brian’s OPTIK Catcher:
Replacing traditional back hand strapping, the BOA System allows the user to dial in a custom fit ensuring a secure, comfortable feel. Not every goalie is going to like a traditionally sized palm– in this design, the BOA allows for the goalie to tighten the glove hand to their specifications. This is particularly helpful for someone with smaller hands, that is seeking a pro-level goalie glove.
Redesigned shape based on the positive feedback of the Darling spec glove, the re-designed shape ensures maximum circumference and blocking surface.
Brian’s OPTIK Blocker:
Replacing traditional back hand strapping, the BOA System allows the user to dial in a custom fit ensuring a secure, comfortable feel. The BOA system allows for a completely customized fit around the blocker hand. Hands come in all shapes and sizes, and this feature allows for an ideal fit for every goalie.
Re-designed index finger protection around finger tip. Removable foam pillow provides increased comfort and thumb protection.
Ready for sale on 11/1/2017, Brian’s will be introducing a third series of goalie gear to accompany their GNetik and Heritage lines– the OPTIK.
The OPTIK series will feature the thinnest profile leg pad on the market today. The unique shape provides an extremely lightweight feel, without sacrificing durability. Here are some of the new key features/highlights:
The elimination of the outer roll decreases weight, while improving thegoaltenders vision on pucks that need to be seen in tight. Traditionally, outer rolls were designed to give the stuffed goalie pads structural support, which is no longer needed with the modern engineered foam core pad.
OPTI-SLIDE inner gusset construction provides the ultimate slide and seal across the crease. The Primo liner, hardened HD foam sliding edge and bindingless design creates a smooth and quick slide.
Flex Core and Fly Core Options– The newly engineered foam core is available in TWO distinct options. The “Flex Core” emulates feel and flex for a hybrid/reactive goaltender that is looking for maximum mobility, flex and torque on their pad. This has a distinct “S” curve and an aggressive 80-degree boot taper. The “Fly Core” provides a butterfly style goalie a straighter and more rigid core to maximize coverage and seal along the ice. This pad has a 90-degree boot taper, and is the stiffer option.
