Warrior protective

Recommended Posts

 

We will be posting Warrior in stages this year to protect their launch dates.  We will start out with protective.

 

Gloves - 

 

Touted as the lightest, most mobile and protective glove in hockey, we start with the Covert QRL.

 

It continues the Covert story with a tapered fit, SmartPalm+ and Phantom protection, however, introduces two new features.

 

First is the AxyFlex thumb, which is a three-piece thumb (the middle part does not flex.)

 

The biggest feature, however, is the Axyflex cuff, which while not new to the market, is definitely different than all previous iterations.

 

The cuff is suspended from the glove and held by a neoprene cuff and backed by mesh.  It is stretchy and allows the cuff to move independently from the rest of the glove.  It is completely enclosed, so there's protection on the back as well as the front.

 

Full nylon outer on the QRL.

 

The QRL Pro version still features all of the features that the QRL has, however, has regular SmartPalm and isn't full nylon.

 

QRL3 doesn't have the AxyFlex cuff but still features SmartPalm and Phantom protection.

 

Dynasty glove is unchanged.

 

Protective -

 

Dynasty is unchanged.

 

The Covert QRL pant is new for 2016.  It is still forward-canted, but not as much as previous models.  It features their IST gusset that keeps the pant moving with the player, and has an floating internal pant belt system.  420 denier nylon outer and segmented back leg protection. The kidney and spine pads have been redesigned as well, offering very good protection.

So is the replacement for the Dynasty HD series due out next year? 2 year cycle?

 

I'm curious what kind of improvement the QRL line brings over the standard QR stick.

Now that the QRL gloves are available retail, any idea when they'll be on the Warrior customizer?

 

I asked the same question to Warrior on Twitter and they responded with "not for a few weeks"

Will Warrior be coming out with a full protective line this season?  Is the QRL the "lighter" run of their gear and the Dynasty the "heavier" or more protective line of their gear?
