Reebok 18K Leg Pads

The new Reebok 18K leg pads close faster, offer more coverage, and provide the solid seal needed to win. The 18K features many new and innovative upgrades over the previous model, as well as a softer flex that will appeal to both blocking and hybrid style goaltenders.The 18K is a flat faced pad with a solid outer knee roll, and the stock version comes with a nice, pre-formed S shape. Internally, the pad features foam breaks both above and below the knee, which help give the pad more flex than you would anticipate in a pad with a solid outer roll. Additionally, the internal pad foam mold has a softer FLEXCORE boot break built in, which is great for goalies who want more flex in the ankle.The knee lock has been modified in the 18K to include Reebok's new MAXCOVERAGE design. On the inside of the knee, this design features a wider, thicker knee raiser which provides a more stable landing platform while going into the butterfly, as well as an additional blocking surface when going into your knees together/ankles together Giggy-fly when blocking five hole shots. On the outside of the knee, the outermost knee cradle flap has been significantly shortened, and a new, additional knee lock strap postion at the top of the outside calf flap can create an extremely wide, extremely loose fitting knee setup. By opening up the knee, the pad is allowed to slide towards the inside of the goalies leg, which presents a smaller five hole to the shooter. Goalies who like a traditional set up can also attach the knee lock strap to the outer knee lock flap, which holds the knee more tightly to the pad.On the inside edge of the pad, the calf position has been moved forward and includes a 1/2 HD foam SOLIDSEAL pad to provide a more stable butterfly platform, as well as an additional blocking surface on the ice. At the knee, the traditional straps that run outside and over the top of the knee raisers have now been run through channels in the knee raiser itself. By moving the strap position, the straps are kept from pulling the thigh rise up off of the ice when going into the butterfly. Combined with the SOLIDSEAL calf wrap, both of these features give the pad a complete seal to the ice in the butterfly. * Quick Release: open knee cradle allows the pad to drop to the inside of your leg to close the 5-hole for more coverage * MAXCOVERAGE: A knee raised inside knee raiser with straps running through the injection molded foam for maximum 5-hole coverage and stability * SOLIDSEAL: Forward position calf wrap keeps the inside edge flat and flush to the ice giving a solid seal in the butterfly position * FLEXCORE: A new softer boot flex option for goalies wanting more flex at the ankle.

You'll find little difference betwen the P4s and the 18Ks from a performance standpoint at the high school level. The P4s will wear better based on the high end materials used but other than that they are basically the same pad. Since you're probably still growing and pad technology is continuously advancing, I would reccomend you save $800 and go with the 18Ks.

If you are still growing than the 18k pads would be good for 1 or maybe 2 seasons at that level until you need a bigger pad. If you have stopped growing than the P4 Pro would be the better option because of the thicker materials it will last longer. Both are a great option.

Question
How come only the 14k leg pads have a double break? Also, what are some main differences between the 18k and 14k leg pad?

I think the reason that the 14K has a double break is that Reebok wanted to create a more forgiving, flexible pad for the goalies that the pad is made for (beginners to intermediate goalies). Typically, goalies who are just starting out have an easier time with a pad that is flexible enough to move with their legs.

The main differences between the two pads, besides the double break, are:
- 14k graphics are not sewn on, they are silk screened on
- Leg channel is made of all nylon (no nash or clarino)
- 14K has a deep leg channel (18K is shallow)
- pad face is made of 1.2mm PU Leather (1.35mm microfiber on 18K)

Hope that helps.

There will not be a double break in the 18K pad in the near future. However, the pad does have internal breaks both above and below the knee and make the pad flex more than you would think.

Here are the differences between the two pads (materials in parenthesis are on the P4):

Front Leather - 1.35mm Microfiber (14mm Jenpro)

Nylon in Leg Channel - 400D (420D High abrasion)

Inner Core foams - HD foam, LD foam, PE foam (HD, LD & injection molded EPE)

If you're growing and will only be in the pads for a year or two, then you probably won't notice much of a difference. If you're playing at an advanced level, you're not growing anymore, and plan to play as much as your profile indicates (up to 5 times per week), then you'll want to go with the P4 because it will hold up better.
