New for 2014, the Vaughn 2000 Velocity 6 Chest and Arm protector has been re-worked to make a great unit even better. Every piece of this chest guard has been examined and redesigned if necessary to improve the basic fit and feel, and also reduce the overall weight.
For starters, the shoulder floaters have been widened and made more square at the top outside shoulder location for added protection. Additional, removeable pillows under shoulder floaters for custom fit. Separate, secondary HD foam protection sits beneath the main floaters and over the shoulder joint, and an additional, widened HD foam rib cage wing helps keep pucks from slipping under the arms.
The chest pad design features three (3) independent layers for extreme flexibility and protection with multiple load paths to decrease impacts. The lower chest pad belly flap allows the unit to flex when crouching so the unit stays positioned even in a deep crouch. New side chest pad extensions extend over the upper rib cage to both increase protection and cover the side attachment buckle. The sternum plate now features a sheet of carbon fiber for unmatched protection here.
Arm floaters are anatomically positioned to stay in place while moving, and wide bicep molded caps add to protection and net coverage. Multiple adjustment points for arm width and elbow cap position insure a custom fit.
