One of the lightest blockers on the market, the Warrior Ritual G5 Pro looks to improve on performance while keeping the blocker as light as possible. Warrior has continued the use of their HyperComp construction to do just that. HyperComp helps to improve consistency and durability, without sacrificing any weight. New this year is Warrior’s innovative CoverEDGE+ technology that maximizes coverage with their new face forward design, taking away more of the shooter's angle while the goalie maintains the same positioning.
Warrior uses Gen Pro material on this blocker, currently one of the strongest skins used in the goalie world, Warrior is taking a “don’t fix what isn’t broken” approach when it comes to the skin on their gear.
One of the most user friendly features of Warrior equipment is their removable palms. Warrior allows the palm to be replaced with a different size or change the position of the palm on the blocker board. The G5 PRO comes stock with a large removable liner.
Side Hand Protection
Warrior incorporated their HyperComp material into the blocker board and sideboard for added protection as well as more consistent rebounds and improved durability. Warrior first introduced HyperComp to their gear with the G4 series, proving the benefits of it by improving the blocker without adding weight. The side board of the blocker also features ample finger protection, designed to fit the goal stick without any weak spots or interference.
The G5 PRO sports an open cuff promoting a lot of mobility and ease when playing the puck.
The G5 PRO blocker has contoured finger protection that is adjustable to make sure your thumb and fingers are fully protected while finding that comfortable fit.
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. Available palm sizes include intermediate, medium, large, extra-large. Warrior stocks the following colorways in G5 Pro ; All White, All Black, White/Black, White/Black/Red, White/Red, and White/Royal.
