Warrior's Ritual G4 Pro is the younger sibling of the Ritual G2 Pro. With mechanical arms, the G4 Pro senior goalie chest protector offers a very unique solution to the age old goaltending problem of getting a chest to be both mobile and protective.
The arms utilize Warrior's AxyFlex technology which pivots the arm floater away from the elbow when the goalie bends their arms. This allows warrior to use much more robust materials in the construction of the arms, without the fear that they will get in the way of the flexibility of the unit.
Warrior has taken their new HyperComp carbon composite material and has added it onto the forearm and the bicep of the G4 Pro senior chest protector. This new material offers much improved protection compared to the poly-carbonate material that was in the same spot on the G3 Pro, as well as a slightly reduced weight. Also Warrior has added their Shockshield technology under the HyperComp material to allow for a much softer rebound than the stiff composite material would let on. Shockshield is a trampoline material layered under the arm that absorbs puck impact energy and disperses it without firing the puck back to the shooters stick.
One of the biggest advantages of the G4 Pro, and the entire Ritual line in general is the adjustablility of the unit. With full adjustment down the back of the chest, as well as in a sewn in arm you can get the G4 Pro chest protector fitting exactly right. Warrior has also slightly shortened the arms to help accommodate more sizes as it was found that the arms of the G2 were a bit long for each body size.
The G4 Pro goalie chest & arm protector from Warrior is a chest for a goalie that isn't afraid of change, and the advantages that come along with it.
