Brian's G-Netik X5220999330005
Brand new for 2022, Brian’s Custom Sports proudly introduces their newest pad line to the world; introducing the Brians G-Netik X5! While being custom designed in Canada, Brian’s has taken feedback from their pro advisory team and retail consumers alike to provide high end levels of equipment designed for today’s butterfly goaltender.
Following the success and popularity of the visual look of the G-Netik IV, Brian’s has added more color zones while keeping the long lines across the glove to visually distract shooters. A soft nash palm with a laced in 35 degree break allows for easy closure right out of the box with a natural middle finger to thumb closure.
Looking at the visual presentation, goalies will notice a smaller cuff and larger catching surface to help give a large visual look while still protecting the hand as necessary. Structurally, you will find a solid one piece cuff design which helps prevent pucks from skipping between the body and glove. This one piece cuff design also provides extra stability for stickhandling and gripping the stick.
Looking at the pocket of the glove, the G-Netik V features a Double T with the maximum pocket depth allowed per NHL spec. However, with how this glove is designed, you will notice a visually larger basket which gives the illusion that the pocket is deeper than most gloves.
The X5 offers a traditional Velcro and webbing wrist strap to allow maximum comfort and mobility in the wrist on the glove.
To maximize the grip and hold on the goaltenders hand, the G-Netik X5 features a no-slip SBA liner and floating pad in the wrist to provide maximum mobility.
Closing off the glove, the backhand has strategic reinforcements to protect the tips of the fingers during RVH seals against the post and even from errant sticks or skates while trying to freeze the puck. This backhand protection provides the proper amount of protection without weighing down the glove.
