The Warrior Alpha DX Senior hockey gloves are a new line of protection as Warrior takes a leap into protective equipment under their Alpha product line. Warrior offers a dynamic strike composition of glove which features an old school look with an anatomical feel that is designed to improve puck control and provide optimal hand protection.
The tapered fit allows the glove to contour the natural shape of your hand with a hybrid flex cuff at the end of it to extend your range of motion.
The Alpha DX gloves use a two material construction to provide durability and a sleek look. A lightweight polyester wraps the foams to reduce weight and increase breathability throughout. A synthetic leather accents the polyester and completes the look.
A traditional four-roll design with a tapered fit is found on the back of the glove. The 4-roll design offers a traditional feel and the tapered fit helps to secure the glove to the hand better and offer additional mobility. The hand is protected by Warrior’s Impax+ foam, which is a high-end mix of VN and HD IXPE foams and shield inserts to disperse impacts.
Finger Design & Protection
The Alpha DX gloves mix a traditional four-roll design with a more modern cut in the fingers. The index and middle finger offer a three-piece design for increased mobility coupled with the standard two-piece design on the ring, and pinky fingers. The fingers are protected by Warrior’s Impax+ foam, which is a high-end mix of VN and HD IXPE foams and shield inserts to disperse impacts.
As part of the Alpha DX’s Buttersoft Feel, an Axi-Flex thumb is provided on the gloves to improve dexterity and grip on the stick. This thumb is designed to flex towards the palm to better close the hand, but locks up and becomes rigid when flexed backwards.
The cuff of the DX is designed as a flex cuff which extends your range of motion to allow for better puck handling and less binding against your elbow pads. However, the hybrid cuff still remains tight enough to your hand to protect your wrists from slashes.
Palm Material & Gussets
The Buttersoft feel incorporated into the gloves features responsive lycra gussets and Warrior's Axi-Flex thumb. This, combined with a Pro Palm+ offers a great mix of feel and durability that has been tested at the game’s highest level.
The yellow WarTech FnC used by Warrior has become a staple on all of their protective products. Powered by Polygiene, this liner is designed to keep you dry, clean and odor free. The composition of the liner inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria, and all you need to do is wipe it with a warm cloth every month or so to keep it performing at its best.
Sizes & Colors
The Alpha DX senior gloves are available in 13”, 14” and 15” sizing and offered in six different colors: Black, Black/White, Black/Red, and Navy.
