New for 2017, the Alpha QX has a Quick Strike design, balancing an anatomical fit with a more traditional 4-roll look. Typical 4-roll gloves don’t taper to the wrist, and can leave too much wiggle room in the cuff of the glove – but they look awesome! The Alpha line uses a Hybrid Taper Fit, which more closely contours to the hand’s shape. This eliminates negative space and affords you superior puck control and protection while maintaining the classic appearance.
The Hybrid Flex Cuff is a flexible design that allows you to extend your wrist’s range of motion, unhindered by a traditionally-rigid poly insert cuff, without becoming vulnerable to pucks and slashes. To round out the protective capabilities, the Alpha QX uses Phantom Foam, which is a first-class foam blend, so light you won’t even know it’s there!
Every player is looking for slick hands and as such, Warrior’s Alpha line was created with the goal of “Butter Soft Feel” in mind. By using Lycra gussets, an AXI-Flex thumb, and a stretch backhand, the Alpha QX has a broken-in feel from jump, and allows you to feel the puck unlike any other glove out there.
The last details are sometimes the most important, and Warrior sure knows it! The SMARTPALM+ is a pro-tested palm that not only contributes to the already stellar feel, but also offers increased durability in the high-traffic areas of the palm. Inside the glove, the WarTech FNC liner uses Polygiene odor-control fabric to wick moisture, keeping you dry and odor free.
