New for 2019, Brian’s Custom Sports has released their second tier model of the widely popular Brian’s Optik line. The Brian’s Optik 9.0 Senior Goalie Glove is a mix between the Subzero and G-Netik lines to bring key elements out of both models to continue to reach new levels of creativity and function.
Starting off with the face of the Brian’s Optik 9.0, the graphic features a large main color zone that starts in the middle of the cuff, travels to the pinky area and then shoots up through the lower palm to the thumb side of the glove. Several small accent zones are also placed throughout the glove for added variety of customization options and visual design.
Moving on to the build of the Optik 9.0, a one piece cuff design gives a naturally large appearance for better visual representation to the shooter. On to the pocket and closure, a redesigned shape on the build with a single T creates a deep large pocket for the goaltender to further help with visual representation and catching surface that will help naturally guide pucks in to the pocket. Topping off the pocket, the same 40 degree break angle from the Optik and SubZero Pro glove is implemented to give the goaltender a closure that is generated by the goalies fingers and finger tips, but has a break that aligns the palm that gives a game ready feel.
Internally on the Optik 9.0 Senior, an SBA no-slip material is used through the hand to provide a comfortable feel that provides grip when the goaltender’s hand sweats. On the wrist area, a floating wrist pad that sits slightly off the base of the glove is utilized to give the goaltender maximum flexibility when reaching toward pucks, along with a nylon strap pulls over top that is easily accessible for quick adjustments. On the back of the hand, a pad sits over the top below the fingers with an adjustable strap to provide the tightness the goaltender prefers.
If you are an intermediate-level goalie who is looking for a lightweight glove that offers a customized fit with a game ready closure, the Brian’s Optik 9.0 Senior Goalie Glove is the glove for you.
- True one-piece cuff with a 35° break angle and beveled thumb design helps direct more pucks into the pocket.
- No slip SBA synthetic interior palm and floating wrist pad.
