In combination with the Warrior Brand and legendary goalie gear designer Pete Smith, the Warrior Ritual G3 Sr. pushes the envelope of goaltending equipment and technology to a new level.
Beginning with an improved lighter core of the G2, the G3 Sr. gives the goalie more energy throughout the game due to less weight being pulled during the course of an ice session. The thinner profile at the top of the pad helps reduces any negative feelings from thigh rise overlap or bulky feeling when the goalie is moving throughout the crease. This also keeps the top portion of the pad closer to the goalies body for a tighter seal and maximum five hole coverage. The inside of the thigh rise features Warrior Profile Lock which allows the goaltender to choose closure of the thigh and five hole.
At the bottom half of the pad, the G3 Sr. features a square toe which maximizes the goalies coverage along the ice. This square design helps prevent “tilt-loss” which is the potential over or under rotation a goalie may experience while dropping down. The square boot design finally features a slightly rounded inner toe which promotes smooth transitions while getting up and down in the butterfly.
The leg channel of the pad has a minimalist and clean setup to further promote easy attachment for goalies, but to also enhance pad rotation. The Active Response Straps include a neoprene sling wrap setup behind the goalies knee to either attach across the knee, or angled down to the calf. On top of the sling wrap is a nylon strap which connects via a plastic buckle next to the knee or angled down at the calf. This setup helps keep the goalies knee centered on the knee block so the pad does not over or under rotate. The calf has a solid wide Velcro strap which has a thinner Velcro attachment on the outside of the leg. This setup fully encapsulates the leg and offers smooth rotation for the goalie.
The Active Response toe straps remain similar to the G2 Pro setup which the elastic attachment at the toe running through the front opening of the cowling and the boot strap being able to run through the third heel opening in the cowling or behind the ankle. These elastic straps hold the pad tight to the leg and ankle, but enhance rotation and movement for the skates.
In comparison to the Warrior G3 Sr. leg pads, the G3 Pro will feature upgraded internal foams and materials.
If you are a goalie who is looking for one of the most technologically advanced pads on the market without breaking the bank, the Warrior G3 Sr. is the pad for you.
Coming from Reebok P4 I tried the G2 Pro version of this pad. It was also lightweight, but the strapping setup seemed not to well thought out. Everything I disliked about the G2 they have fixed in this version. I can't speak of the durability, I have only used them about six times. What I can say is strapping is adjustable. The toe and boot strapping is much better elastic than the G2. Seal is great and slides better also. For a senior model they build a great pad here.Review by bigguy35er (Posted on 3/27/2017)
I play dek hockey and needed a pair of pads that I can put to my liking whenever I need to change things up. Very lightweight the glove and blocker are very nice except the stitching on my fingers for my blocker have come apart. I recommend getting a back up lining for your block but overall I love the pads.Review by Brandon (Posted on 1/12/2017)
Build quality has gone up significantly over my G2 Pro classics. It's rigid but still very forgiving. Only took me 5 games to fully break it in. Flexes well at the knee break and at the thighrise if needed. The internals have been improved, although with a tad more flex than the pros. The thighrise no longer "twists" from using the profilelock feature. Slides well, and the sling straps work much better than the old velcro straps.Review by ruckus007 (Posted on 6/23/2016)
