I would have to say that the shoulder pads are where you see the most improvements when it comes to looking at the construction. I have to say that the black and yellow colors were a solid choice on Warrior’s part, but I mean, who can go wrong with those colors? The entire “jacket” (the foam underneath the sternum guard and spine guard that covers the length of your chest and back) is ventilated, which helps pull hot air out from in between your pads and body and pull cool air in. This also reduces the weight of the pads by 15% compared to the Warrior Dynasty AX2. Now where we see the real improvements in protection is the Smart Cap
Looking at the shin guards, along with some sweet performance upgrades, there are also some cool aesthetic features as well like on
Last but not least I present the AXLT elbow pads, which still offer that great look you’re raving about. With a hinged 2-piece design, you’ll notice some great separation between the bicep and forearm guard for less restriction when you’re shooting or passing. The strapping system in my opinion is one of the most crucial features of an elbow pad considering comfort and fit are what make elbow pads feel the best. I’ve always been a fan of the nylon forearm strap they’re using because you don’t have to worry about it stretching out over time, increasing the longevity of the pad. The strap at your joint utilizes their Sling Wrap, which is a Y-shaped neoprene strap that covers the forearm for a more secure hold. Finally, the bicep guard has a standard elastic strap to finish it off. Similar to the AXLT shoulder pads, the elbow pads use Smart Cap technology, which like I said before is multiple layers of foams on top of the molded plastic cap that increases the impact area to spread the energy out and away from your body. The foams in the bicep guard and forearm guard are ventilated for extra air circulation and reduces the weight of the pad by 10% compared to the AX2. The liner is the same story with the WarTech and Polygiene™ combination. With tons of great features, the Warrior Dynasty AXLT protective package is not one that you want to pass up on, as you are going to get lightweight, advanced level protection at an even better price. Of course you can get all of this great Warrior gear at Inline & Ice Warehouse so keep checking back for more insight!
