This is our flagship of neck protection for goalies. With superior protection from impacts and cuts, our standard Combo clavicle pad is 10" in length from edge to edge and 4" in height from edge to edge. We offer different collar heights, notch cutouts for more neck clearance, and we also offer several modifications aimed at covering the area left exposed by the neck line of your particular chest & arm.
Our GPS Collar features the same protective materials used in the goalie GPS Combo, while being aimed at forwards who require protection from impacts and cuts. It does not feature the clavical pad associated with the GPS Combo, but has an available option for a bib (not pictured).
GPS Knee/Thigh Pads
New for 2013, Maltese Sports introduces our latest product, the gpsKTPs - GPS Knee/Thigh Pads.
After years of research and development in the knee pad department and based on the success of our GPS products, specifically, our neck protection, we have, what we feel is the ultimate knee protection. We use three layers of our air frothed gel to make the most comfortable, mobile and protective knee pads. But we didn't stop at the knees, we went higher to protect the thighs too. Often, when in the butterfly the thighs get exposed more than the knees and I know this from experience. As always, no hard parts used, so landing on these "stand alone" protective Knee/Thigh Pads (KTPs), will solve rock hard landing gear pads as well as missing your landing gear altogether. It's when you take a puck to the knee/thigh area and you don't hear a noise and don't feel a thing that you'll come to fully appreciate these pads from us. Goalies often complain that their knee pads of choice prevent their pads from rotating, but ours are very low profile and do not cause those same rotation issues.
GPS Lace-Bite Pads
Our first mass distributed item to NHL teams. These pads have gone through three incarnations as our materials evolved, and just like the rest of our lineup, the Lace-Bite Pads feature reduced weight while offering the same amount of protection.
The pads prevent lace bite via a simple appliance to use. While your skates are on, but not laced up, you place the pad against the affected area; bring down the tongue and lace as per usual. When you unlace your skate and take it off, the LBP stays put on the tongue. No more looking for your lace bite pads for each skate session!
GPS Mask Padding
This is ‘it’…the padding that will change how masks are finished off. Say good-bye to ineffective materials like Rubatex, EVA, EPP and anything else that is NOT gel. Our gel has an effective operational range of -40 degrees to 200 degrees. It is 100% hypoallergenic. The gel immediately rebounds to provide the same level of excellent attenuation for multiple sequential impacts. This gel appears to be foam, but do not mistake it as such. This gel looked like the gel we all know prior to being air frothed, which reduces the weight. We offer two thicknesses in the kit. The blue is ¼” thick and the gray is 1/8” thick and self adhesive so it can be married to the blue (provided you’ve cleaned it well) wherever you may need the gel to be thicker. The attenuation properties of the gel mean you can use a thinner padding, which increases overall visibility, while increasing your protection.
Easy to install, provided you follow a few basic tenets; clean the surface of the mask thoroughly using an astringent such as lacquer thinner, remove the scrim (cloth) backing from the pieces of gel to receive the adhesive (contact cement). The scrim backing is left on to keep the surface of the gel pieces clean, so do not remove it until you are ready to affix your dots. Allow the adhesive to set up for a minimum of twenty-four hours prior to use. A bonus in using the gel is that it will outlive your mask!
GPS Chin Sling
Our GPS Chin Slings are a new option for goalies, filling the need for goalies who prefer the feel of a sling in their masks. This item is an option in the GPS Mask Padding Kit, but we now offer it as a standalone item for those who wish to upgrade from the classic chin pad.
