The Lefevre Design Team, headed by famed pad producer Michel Lefevre, went back to the drawing board for 2014 and developed an incredible pad line, The Reebok Premier XLT Goalie Pads. Featuring some of the most advanced technologies the industry has ever seen, the Premier XLT series is sure to impress even the most critical of goaltenders.
Reebok Premier XLT Leg Pads
One of the most important innovations that Lefevre and his team developed is Crosslink Foam which makes up the majority of the padding across the Premier XLT line. This new foam is designed to provide a little bit of extra pop on rebounds so that the goaltender has additional time to recover and get back into position before the next shot is on its way. To ensure a completely smooth, true and flat seal with the ice the interior edge is binding free. The lack of bindings increases control during slides, as well as durability by eliminating an area of high-friction.
Reebok Premier XLT Catch Glove
The Premier XLT glove features Reebok's one-piece thumb and cuff design, made popular on previous models, to ensure maximum protection from any angle. Improvements for this year include the addition of a deeper pocket with a wider catching area and a tacky yet comfortable Suregrip liner on the interior of the palm. On the backhand Reebok added Crosslink Foam to provide significant additional finger protection.
Reebok Premier XLT Blocker
Similar to the leg pads, the Premier XLT blocker features a bindingless edge to add longevity by reducing wear on sensitive surfaces. This smooth edge also offers more predictable rebounds through the removal of the uneven surface that bindings can create. To increase protection the padding on the interior of the wrist and fingers has been extended and reinforced with Crosslink Foam. The wrist and thumb padding is also tied into the strap that secures the wrist in place to ensure that the protection is in the right position at all times.
The Reebok Premier XLT Goalie Equipment is a welcome improvement over last season's Premier 4 gear, and the effort that the Lefevre design team put into this makeover is apparent.
