The Bauer Elite goalie pants were built with fit, performance, function and protection in mind.
Starting with the exterior, Bauer has built these pants with a very durable nylon exterior. The stretch fabric in key areas ensures the pants are moving with the goalie's movement and not fighting against them. The synthetic leather lower cuff inserts are positioned in such a way as to prevent fraying that could be caused by velcro on your knee guards or the block system of your pads.
The liner sees Thermo Max+ that is used to wick away moisture while it helps keep you cool and dry.
The fit of the Elite goalie pants is a more tapered design, however is fully adjustable with the allowance to extend the pants 1" under the belt without giving up protection. The dual belt system has become standard for that extra snug fit if needed, plus the capability of wearing your chest protector inside or outside of your pants.
Protection starts at the squared off legs with the thigh protectors reinforced with Shocklite, which is a e thicker foam that provides phenomenal protection but also stays mobile and flexible.
The hips are protected by HD foam blocks that let you stay mobile but protected. The Bauer Dynamic2 Flex technology is used on the front area near the hips to give you maximum coverage, increased flexibility and better range of motion when in the butterfly transition.
Seeing the increased use of secondary knee guards, Bauer introduced a knee guard attachment located just inside the front cuffs of the pant legs. This will accept any knee guards that have top tabs attached. Learn more about the Bauer Elite Intermediate goalie pants.
