Reebok is the pioneer of the injected molded one-piece cuff and thumb and goalies have come to love the Reebok Premier gloves.
The new XLT features a one-piece cuff and thumb design, and the specificially radiused thumb angle both protects against repeated shots to this area, and it directs pucks into the new, deep double T-web pocket. To further protect against puck impacts, Reebok has added ridges to the XLT cuff plastic for increased durability.
The opening cuff in the glove is detatched, which allows for great wrist mobility. The backhand features three tigthening straps - wrist, backhand and fingers. New on the XLT, Reebok has added a crosslink foam to the backhand for increased finger protection from the sticks and skates from crashing forwards.
The interior palm includes Reebok's "SureGrip" material to give the goalie more leverage when closing the glove, which increases hand reaction and response time.
