Starting with the visual look, the G4 Pro has a new red color to showcase some new changes. First, you will notice a reinforced sternum protector which is designed to give more protection to the breast plate and heart area. This design still has strategic cuts to give flexibility when flexing forward. Next, there are 2 large side rails added between sections on the chest and sides to help fill certain gaps that pucks used to find.
Moving down to the stomach, the G4 Pro has an improved belly pad that offers more protection with higher density materials. These materials will help offer more protection when catching pucks and being square to the shooter. There are large elastic straps that run from the backplate to the sides that replace elastic straps with plastic buckles. This elastic strap setup is closed off with a Velcro closure which can be adjusted at any angle to give the goalie a true dialed in feel. Also, there are removable stomach and side flaps which can be removed, angled or adjusted to fit any goaltenders frame.
New on the G4, there is a lace in shoulder and arm design. This lace in feature allows for goaltenders to shorten or lengthen the arms to find their exact fit. On top of this design, the arms have been re-measured and are now slightly shorter in length. Across the back, the G4 Pro has 5 adjustments for goaltenders who would like to move the shoulder floaters either way, move the neck in either direction or be able to tighten or loosen the back plate. With this adjustment style on the G4 Pro, it proves to be one of the most universal chest protectors which fit nearly every goaltenders shape.
Moving in to the arms, the G4 Pro will feature ShockShield and AxyFlex technology to provide a wide range of motion and flex. The ShockShield design is made with a hard plastic which will help disperse the impact across the plastic cap which helps move the puck hard and away from the arms. Warrior has reinforced the G4 Pro arm design with their HyperComp material which adds in even more protection. The AxyFlex design is a hinge like movement through the front of the elbow which provides unmatched forward flex and closure to give the goalie ultimate mobility.
