WARRIOR ALPHA DX FAMILYWarrior is about to release their new 2019 Alpha DX protective line and we are excited to show you the new gear! Warrior wanted to accomplish a couple of things this year, which was to reduce weight while maintaining protection and mobility. Find out what they added this year!
Alpha DX Shoulder Pads have two big features I want to point out, Dynamic Cap and DX Shell. By introducing these two upgrades, Warrior has reduced bulk and slimmed down the profile of the shoulder pads to give players more mobility and agility on the rink. The Dynamic Cap shoulders still offer pro-level protection against high mass, low velocity impacts like bodychecks. Second feature, DX Shell, is their new form of elite-level of protection this year.
Alpha DX Elbow Pad this year makes them even more mobile and lighter than the previous QX. With the introduction of DX Shell that replaces the VPS foam, a lot of weight has been taken out without sacrificing protection. Achieving better mobility was done by adding another hinged point down on the forearm.
Alpha DX Shin Guards do a great job of deflecting impact energy away from the leg because Warrior suspended the liner away from the ribbed shell. Since the leg isn't directly touching the shell it won't feel nearly as much of that impact energy, so players can confidently block shots and skate through chopping sticks. DX Shell has been added to the calf and thigh guard to once again reduce weight and increase player protection. An injected plastic insert helps to reinforce slash and blocked shot protection to the calf. The DX Shin Guard has a very comfortable neoprene and nylon Y-strap that keeps the leg locked in and is comfortable all game long. Players can expect to find an anatomical fit that feels close-to-the-body and great responsiveness.
