The Brian's Sub Zero 7.0 blocker 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 is sewn directly into the board face jenpro, and the width of this board also acts to legally extend the overall width of the board somewhat. Every inch of coverage counts, and goalies will surely find this design beneficial. 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 has been shortened from the original design to give the goalie even more wrist mobility than before. 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 finger protection is comprised of accordion style HD foam boards. These allow the protection to stay on top of the fingers no matter what position there are in.
