Brand new for 2020, Warrior Goalie has unleashed their fifth iteration of the Ritual line. Building off the successful previous G3 and G4 lines, the G5 is an all new beast that we think every goalie should check out. The Warrior Ritual G5 Intermediate Goalie Glove is incredibly light and specifically designed for the goaltender to get the most out of their equipment.
Starting off with the biggest change from the G4 to the G5 is CoverEDGE+. CoverEDGE+ is an easy concept to understand with little explanation needed. This brand-new feature applies a face-forward design that adds a new dimension to maximizing your coverage in the net. By bringing the face of each piece of the G5 gear forward, the angle to the puck is further cut down, allowing you to get a piece of pucks that would just miss more conventionally designed gear.
Returning from previous Warrior lines, the G5 Intermediate Goalie Glove features the removable palm liner. Stock, the G5 Intermediate comes with a 75-degree removable liner. Inside of the palm is where CoverEDGE+ is visible with added materials that pushes the glove off the hand and closer to the ice. This helps for in tight situations and helps create a more natural hand position for the goaltender.
Around the entire perimeter of the glove, you will find Warrior’s clean construction which is essentially a bindingless style perimeter to help prevent any premature wear.
Finally, an all-new AxyFlex Tee construction is noticeable on this glove compared to previous iterations. This tee construction not only increases the pocket size of the G5 trapper but helps keep the tee stay in a consistent shape longer and helps prevent against collapsing as seen in some other gloves over time.
If you are an intermediate-level goaltender looking for a glove that is highly adjustable and helps make routine saves easier, look no further than the Warrior Ritual G5 Intermediate Goalie Glove.
