In combination with the Warrior Brand and legendary goalie gear designer Pete Smith, Warrior is proud to keep tradition elevated with the brand new Ritual GT Classic Intermediate blocker into the market for 2017.
On the exterior, the Ritual GT Classic Intermediate has binding-less construction to increase durability and maximize blocking surface. The sidewall is also extra reinforced to create a rigid sidewall to further protect the hand when in a blocking butterfly scenario. The index finger protection has been revamped with a wider shape to further close off pucks sneaking up into the fingers.
Just like the G3, the GT Classic Intermediate comes with a removable palm that is upgraded and revised. The main difference is within the palm padding does not extend past the wrist and allows for opening for trying on the blocker and in game play. The liner comes in 4 sizes, Intermediate, Medium, Large and XL. These palms all fit different sizes and widths of goalies hands. Their preference can also be adjusted by positioning the palm lower or higher on the board to create the best blocking style. Intermediates comes stock with this GT blocker. To note, the GT palm can also retrofit in to the Intermediate Warrior G3 blocker.
If you are a goalie who is looking for a blocker that is one of the most technologically advanced, balanced and lightest on the market, the Warrior GT Classic Intermediate is the blocker for you.
In combination with the Warrior Brand and legendary goalie gear designer Pete Smith, Warrior is proud to keep tradition elevated with the brand new Ritual GT Classic Intermediate catch glove into the market for 2017.
The design of the GT glove features a clean binding-less construction and perimeter which gives the glove less chance of wearing out on the edges and a more solid feel on the hand. The base of the T has been redesigned to give a little bit more flex in the T of the glove. This conventional T flex gives the glove the ability to open even wider, close seamless and make it easier for stick-handling.
The palm of the glove is now fixed and is not removable which allows the goalie to get the maximum amount of grip on the inside. The new break angle of the glove features a 70 degree closure, which is sa slightly more horizontal break compared to the stock 75 degree angle of the G3. The glove also has enhanced protection directly over the palm section of the glove to provide more protection against odd shots but still providing the maximum game ready feel.
On the backhand, there is a more traditional design which includes the ability to make adjustments while the backhand is closed, rather than opening it like on the G3. Also, the armadillo style padding has been moved slightly to cover a little more on the back of the wrist. The internal wrist area now comes with a removable shim which can tighten up the wrist for those who want an even tighter feel.
Overall, the presentation of this glove opens very wide to the shooter and makes the surface area of the glove look very large. This wide open surface and unique design in closure allows the GT to act as a great similar design to the Ritual G3.
If you are a goalie who is looking for a glove that is one of the most technologically advanced, balanced and lightest on the market, the Warrior GT Classic Intermediate is the glove for you.
In combination with the Warrior Brand and legendary goalie gear designer Pete Smith, Warrior is proud to keep tradition elevated with the brand new Ritual GT Classic Intermediate pad into the market for 2017.
Beginning with a re-engineered version of the G3, the GT Classic Intermediate has more internal cuts and breaks which help create torsional and lateral flex in the pad which gives the goalie more energy throughout the game due to less weight being pulled during a game. 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. Warrior has gone with a clean inside of the thigh rise and a slightly different core break above the knee which gives a good amount of bend when flexed but will hold its shape while covering the five hole.
Continuing on the successful design on the G3, the GT now has a slightly tapered inside toe edge which aids in the torsion of the pad all while sealing the ice. This tapered design helps goalies get more flex and bend in the pad which can help reduce stress on the hips and ankles when dropping down. Combined with the strategic internal breaks at the boot and below the knee, the GT Classic Intermediate pad gives a complete seal along the ice from the boot to the thigh rise.
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. Keeping with hybrid tradition of the pad, the GT has a brand new outer post wedge that serves a dual purpose in protecting the leg but adding comfort in the butterfly. The post wedge now has circular edges which are made softer and more flexible to feel more comfortable against the back of the leg when transitioning and in recoveries. Also, the pad comes stock with standard skate lace toe ties, rather the Active Response Elastic toe setup.
A more notable change on the GT line, the knee black has been reduced 1 inch in length from the inside edge of the pad. With this reduction, goalies are still able to get the tight seal on the ice, but the reduction also improves mobility while moving around the crease.
If you are a goalie who is looking for one of the most technologically advanced pads on the market, the Warrior GT Intermediate is the pad for you.
