The Brian's M-Series leg pad is the Sr. Pro version of the popular Zero G series leg pad with a flat-faced front and the new Sub Zero graphic. The M-Series pad has nearly all of the features as the Zero G, but it has a mid-level price point. If you're a young, growing goalie playing at any level, or an adult goalie playing mid to high level hockey 1-2 times per week, you'll love the M-Series.
One of the attributes that make the M-Series pad unique is the proprietary "E-foam" that is used in construction. This foam is not only incredibly light weight, but it is pre-molded into a dynamic "S" shape that, by itself (with little or no pad flex) will close the five hole on both narrow and wide butterflies. This E-Foam is rigid enough to hold the pad in this S shape and keep this shape throughout the life of the pad. Should you like even more pad flex, the H-Series comes with breaks both above and below the knee, as well as nylon thigh rise straps (which are also adjustable to different termination points on the thigh or knee).
The boot of the M-Series is tapered, the shallow boot channel is offset towards the inside of the boot, and the toe tie features both a regular and offset tie option. Goalies who play using a wider stance will love this set-up, as it keeps the inside boot of the pad from interfering when the legs are flared out in a standing position. Both the leg channel and the knee cradle are flat and wide, allowing for easy pad rotation. The wide knee cradle also works well for those who wear internal knee pads, as they can easily wrap the knee lock strap around this bulkier protection.
Like the Zero G, the M-Series is somewhat stiff out of the box, especially at the boot. The pad plays somewhat "hard", meaning that rebounds will shoot away from it upon impact.

Brian's uses an "Ankle to Knee" fitting guide to determine the size of the pad that best meets your needs. To determine your Ankle to Knee Measurement, follow these simple steps:
A. With the leg in a slightly bent position, measure from the inside ankle bone up to the center of the knee cap.
B. Measure from the center of the knee cap up to the desired thigh height.
C. Provide skate size.
A + B + C = Estimated size of pad
If fitted properly, the goalie's knee should rest directly behind the center knee roll with the pad securely attached to the goal skate and properly strapped on the goaltender's leg. Generally, this will ensure that the pad breaks (bends) at the knee/shin and ankle as designed for optimal performance.
