The Warrior Ritual G5 Intermediate Goalie Blocker 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.
Most noticeably on the Ritual G5 Intermediate blocker is the redesigned board shape. The purpose of the redesign is to increase rebounds speeds off the blocker to get pucks into corners quicker and more predictably. The blocker board faces more forward with CoverEDGE+ and has less of a curve to elongate the G5 blocker and maximize coverage toward the bottom edge.
Flipping around, the palm of the Ritual G5 Intermediate is fully removable and can be adjust to a High, Medium, or Low setting or completely replaced with an Intermediate, Medium, Large or XL liner. Stock, the G5 Intermediate comes with an Intermediate removable palm. Every piece stemming off the blocker palm is highly adjustable with many attachment points for the goaltender to find the exact fit and feel they want out of the G5. Internally, the backhand foam is tapered down toward the fingers of the blocker to help angle to nose down and create a more natural hand position for the goaltender to easily reach toward pucks and present the blocker to the shooter.
Finally, on the side of the G5 blocker, you will find an adjustable contoured thumb and finger protection. A side index finger pad can be adjusted and or removed for the goaltenders’ comfort and protection. The thumb piece itself can be angled in different ways and adjusted to be more comfortable on the goaltenders’ hand if desired.
