The Ritual Chest & Arm for 2013 takes many of it's design cues from the Ritual Pro model, but the protection is geared towards those at a Senior Pro level. Intermediate/Sr. Pro level goalies who are looking for a more traditional chest & arm design will appreciate the protection, mobility, and it's many unique features.
For starters, the unit feature large, flexible HD faom shoulder floaters that extend farther down the torso than most other units. Sandwiched between these two floaters is an equally large HD foam sternum plate, and HD foam blocks sit beneath the floaters and sternum protection for an even greater level of protection. Beneath the shoulder floaters sit two additional HD foam plates which provide elite level coverage to the shoulder cap and armpit areas. The belly protection of the pad has attached LD foam protection sewn in to adequately cover the ribs and sides of the belly. The belly flap is hinged at the waist which allows it to expand slightly when crouching in the goalie's stance.
Arm protection consists of HD foam pads up and down the arms, with large, hinged HD foam protection over the elbow joint. Large oval shaped HD foam pads cover the "hinge" in the arm floater for even more protection. The tapered arms fit nicely inside any goalie glove, and the rubber tabs at the end of the velcro adjustment straps make the straps easy to grab and adjust. Molded elbow caps provide excellent protection and comfort.
Like the Ritual Pro, adjustable fit options on the Ritual include customization of the shoulder floater fit on the chest, Adjustable Chest Height straps on the spine plate, and adjustable arm lacing. The entire unit is made of Air mesh material for better mobility, and for faster drying.
