The Warrior Ritual G5 leg pads have been refined by years of constant development by Mike Smith and the team at Warrior Goalie. The intermediate sizing brings all of the benefits of the pro pad in a more condensed package. With a cleaner construction and a thinner stiffer profile overall, as well as maximized coverage with the CoverEDGE+ technology the Warrior G5 INT pads take the unique Warrior formula to another level.
Warrior has optimized the angles of the front face of the pad (blocker and trapper too!) to present the most possible surface to the shooter and cut down on angles on the outside of the pad. The AIRslide technology is still present on the G5 pads, as taken from the G4. Additionally the outer roll of the pad is slimmed down to allow for a tighter seal to the post.
The HD foams throughout the pad and knee stacks make the pad extremely solid in the butterfly, as you would expect from Warrior.
The G5 INT pads feature a single break in the outer roll to allow for a reasonable amount of flex. This flex helps get that perfect five hole seal when in the butterfly.
Boot Angle & Toe Taper
The G5 INT has a soft, 60-degree boot to create a more reactive feeling. This benefits the user by being in sync with each movement and reducing any restriction when moving.
The G5 INT’s come with an adjustable knee cradle that will prevent you from missing or falling off of the pad while also providing you with more stability in your butterfly. Similar to previous Warrior models, the G5 INT’s also include an adjustable knee flap for those who prefer a tighter fit.
Knee & Thigh Protection
Each set of Ritual G5 INT’s will come with the Ritual G5 INT Knee Pad included in the laundry bag as an added bonus.
The G5 INT comes with similar strapping to the previous years model where Warrior has included an adjustable knee/upper calf strap, one main calf strap and the active response boot strap.
Sizes & Colors
Intermediate sizing begins at 30+1” (10.5” Width) going up to 32+1”. The graphic on the G5 INT is going back to basics a bit and is quite aesthetically pleasing. Warrior stocks the following colorways in the G5 INT; All White, All Black, White/Black, White/Black/Red, White/Red, and White/Royal.
