New for 2022 is the smaller sibling of the G-NETik V: the G-NETik X5. Brian’s really demonstrated their design capabilities in the mid-level X5 with a bevelled thumb, No Slip SBA synthetic palm, and laced-in 35° break angle. The X5 looks to upgrade your game, no matter the level you play at.
The X5 uses Jenpro synthetic leather material along the exterior, which is a well-renowned material for its consistent toughness and water resistance. The palm exterior is equipped with Game Ready leather material for extra reinforcement in an area that gets quite a bit of action during the game. On the inside, the palm is lined with No Slip Grip Nash material to help you keep a good and effortless hold on the glove, no matter how wet the inside gets while out on the ice. The finger stalls are also made of Brian’s AirKnit material for great breathability over your fingers.
The laced-in 35° break angle is the same as that seen in the G-NETik V, which is more of a fingers-to-thumb closure. This catch angle has an amazing snappy feel on the close.
The X5 is built with a double-T pocket design, which is a naturally deeper pocket and works with the snappy break angle to offer superior responsiveness. The extra lace and open space make it noticeably easier to both see and track the puck on the ice. Brian’s also integrated their sharply bevelled thumb to help funnel pucks into and toward the pocket better. This functionality works in harmony with the large double-T pocket, allowing you to catch the puck with precision and ease.
The X5 employs multiple strapping styles to keep the process simple and the glove secured to your hand. The backhand and wrist strappings use traditional styles; velcro and webbing respectively. An elastic thumb strap has been implemented for a secure fit that won’t obstruct movement or closure. We already touched on the No Slip Grip along the inside palm, which works in tangent with the floating wrist pad and strap.
The catcher uses a one-piece cuff for stability on saves and security on the fit. It also gives the glove a slick, modern design.
