Brand new for 2019, Warrior Goalie is proud to introduce the 2nd generation of the Ritual GT line and showcase the Warrior Ritual GT2 Intermediate Goalie Glove. The Ritual GT2 Intermediate is designed for today’s goaltender that is looking for a solid glove, encompassed with a deep pocket and snappy closure right out of the box.
Starting with the graphic, Warrior has reshaped the graphic to create a long, clean and sleek visual to make the goaltender look taller.
While the Ritual GT predecessor was a polarizing glove, the GT2 Intermediate features new key upgrades throughout the thumb, pocket and liner to make catching even easier. With the all new thumb shape, goaltenders will find a more traditional feel on their hand. This upgraded feel makes the hand sit naturally in the glove, allowing the goaltender to utilize all of their hand strength to close the glove effectively.
Now, the GT2 Intermediate features a 75 degree closure, which is similar to the other stock breaks that Warrior offers, however the entire palm is laced in and not removable. This 75 degree closure feels like your index and middle finger are pulling right to the tip of your thumb. While the palm is not removable, it is laced in and creates more space inside the glove and more adjustment space with the internal straps.
Aiding in the snappy closure, there is a redefined break in the Double Tee. This new break has been moved from the finger side of the Tee to the thumb side of the Tee to make for a seamless, flat and easy closure. For the actual pocket of the Double Tee, the spines have been thinned out to create a deep visual look that is almost all lace. This pocket has just enough material in it to keep its shape, but the lace in the Double Tee helps deaden the puck for ultimate retention.
On the back of the glove, the open wrist allows for easy articulation so the goaltender can easily present their glove to the shooter. Also, this opening allows for a better fit between the chest protector and glove so there is less interference during play.
If you are an intermediate-level goaltender looking for a traditional feeling glove with all of Warrior Goalie’s technology and designs, all with a snappy closure right out of the box, the Warrior Ritual GT2 Intermediate Goalie Glove is for you.
