The Warrior Ritual G5 Pro trapper introduces CoverEdge+ technology into Warrior’s trapper lineup. With Warriors innovative face forward design, this new technology helps goalies attack shooters more aggressively by taking away more of their shooting angle while still remaining in their same stance.
Warrior uses regular Gen Pro on the G5 Pro trapper. Warrior has improved the protection on this glove by adding HyperComp to the palm. The addition of HyperComp will prevent stingers by adding an extra layer of protection and promote longevity because there is no worry of plastic cracking in the glove.
The first thing you’ll notice about this glove is not only that it’s more comfortable, but also that it is truly game ready. The new break angle is the same as the G4, but by no means is the glove the same. The redesigned thumb angle makes the glove fit more naturally on the hand providing comfort and making it easier to use.
The Warrior Ritual G5 Pro Catcher features a single T pocket design. Usually this means a smaller pocket but Warrior has created this single T using AxyFlex technology which allows the T to hinge when the trapper is closing to allow for a more secure catch with the puck in the pocket.
Strapping stays familiar with the G5 Pro, keeping the same strapping style as the previous G4 trapper. The removable palm is carried over as it has been in the previous iterations of the G series. This allows goalies to change the catch angle of the trapper with additional palms available through Warrior if they so choose.
The cuff on the G5 Pro allows the goalie their full wrist mobility without any restrictions. A one piece cuff and thumb design lets the goalie present their glove the way they want to hold it. This makes the goalie feel more comfortable using the glove and therefore making the goalie more confident when making a glove save.
Warrior has an impressive customizer for the G5 Pro, allowing more options and an easier process than some other brands. The graphic itself on the pad is aesthetically pleasing. Different break angles are also available through custom ordering, choices between 60, 75, or 90 degree finger positioning.
