The Brian's Sub Zero Pro 3 blocker is brand new for 2015, and it strikes the perfect balance of superior protection, mobility, and lightweight design.
The blocker face features a bindingless design which allows the HD and E-foam blocking board to be the maximum allowable width. The large, HD foam sideboard has been made thicker than the older SZ Pro 2 design which provides signficiantly more protection. Underneath the sideboard sits a removeable sidwall cushion to provide even more protection, and it also keeps the sidewall from being pushed inward towards the hand when it is impacted directly.
The wrist cuff features a new single flap design that creates an ultra-large wrist opening. The palm is made of a combination of cream colored Nash with a SBA "no slip" material in the palm. This SBA material gets tackier as it gets wet, which helps the goalie maintain control of the stick no matter how much he/she sweats during a game. Spring mesh finger gussets provide flexibility and promote air flow. Brian's exclusive X-static material lines the finger stalls. This material, which is made with silver fibers throughout, has been shown to kill 99% of the bacteria that it comes into contact with - great for preventing staph and "glove stink". The palm is centered underneath the blocking board for a well balanced feel on the hand.
The upgraded finger protection features a solid one-piece design for increased protection and reduced weight.
