For 2015, Bauer has introduced the Reactor 7000 goal pants to offer a similar level of protection as the 9000 with a few material differences to keep the price lower. The 7000 features a telescopic knee design in order to optimize the joint protection of these pants when combined with a thigh guard. The thigh protection consists of beefy layers of foam and plastic to offer superb protective qualities and keep the pants light. Molded plastic and LD foam floaters keep the hip area guarded against shots and slashes. Molded foam padding surrounds the waist to compliment the protection of the chest & arm.
The internal liner of the 7000 is a comfortable mesh. The pants feature three mechanisms to adjust the closure of the pants: An internal belt, an external nylon belt and a traditional lace tie. The inside of the Telescope knee has a velcro segment sewn in to allow the goalie to connect Reactor thigh guards to the pants should they choose. Jenpro reinforcements are also stitched on the high-wear areas at the bottom ot the pant legs and Telescope knees to increase longevity of the pants.
A hinged, molded foam spine guard finishes off the fantastic level of protection the 7000 has to offer. The waist padding is flared out slightly making these pants ideal for goalies who like to tuck their chest & arm into their pants.
