    Warrior G5 calf wrap

    I just played around with the calf wrap and it seems that when I have it a bit tighter ( I usually have it quite loose) it works better for me. Thanks

    Warrior G5 calf wrap

    Never had a lack of protection issue with the G5 or G3 pads. I just find it strange that in order to flex the pad at the break below the knee the top of the calf wrap has to slide on and off the knee stack. It does this easy enough if you hold the pad and flex it by hand however when your in the butterfly, with you knee pressing down on the knee stack, and you go to a wide butterfly, where the pad should be straighter, the calf wrap slides off the knee stack and then while still in the butterfly if you narrow it by bringing your feet closer together, where the pad should flex at the break

    Warrior G5 calf wrap

    I can see how running the strap down to the calf wrap would help to hold the pad in a curved position with the calf wrap staying on top of the knee stack all the time however I prefer a pad that flexes at the break below the knee so that it’s straighter when needed and then curved when needed. After all this is the function of a break. If I wanted the pad to stay in a curved position then there’s no need for a break, just get them made curved. I use Warrior need pads.

    Warrior G5 calf wrap

    Can anyone explain to me why Warrior designs the calf wrap so it has to rest on top of the knee stack when the pad is flexed at the break below the knee? Below are pictures of my G5 pros and you can see in the first picture how the calf wrap rests on top of the knee stack. I’ve stored the pads upside down so that they have a nice curve thanks to the break below the knee. The issue I have with this is that sometimes while I’m playing the pads will straighten up and then they won’t return to the nice curve as the calf wrap hits the knee stack rather than riding back over it.

    G5 Toe Elastic Tab

    Here’s the steps to attach the tab to the pad. Remove the ARS strap and tuck the plastic fitting back into the hole. To make the 1/8” cord easier to install I put some Zap glue on one end for about 3” as this makes the cord hard so you can push it into place. I also use a pair of needle nose pliers to grab the end of the cord. Starting on the left pad, pass the end of the cord through the left hole in the tab. Insert the cord through the small left hole on the pad and then run the cord out the the slot on the right. Pass the cord through the left hole in the backing plate a

    G5 Toe Elastic Tab

    Here’s some instructions on how I made the tabs for my G5 pads. First cut out the 2 plastic parts and a piece of Jenpro. I used a drill to make the holes in the plastic parts. The holes on mine are all 1/8” as I use 1/8”cord and 1/8” shock cord my elastics. If you use larger shock cord then the 2 holes at the top of the tab will have to be larger to match. Fold the piece of Jenpro in half and sew along the 2 side edges. Insert the tab into the Jenpro and use a pen to locate the holes in the tab. Remove the tab and then punch out the holes in the Jenpro. I used a piece of 1

    G5 Toe Elastic Tab

    I can post some more detailed pictures in the next day or so if it would help for making them.
  8. I’m pretty sure that skived means it was cut/sliced from a thicker sheet whereas unskived means that’s the thickness it was produced at. Skived would have an unfinished look ( see the pores/ cells) on the surface and the unskived would have a finished look ( smooth skin) on the surface.
  9. If you are playing on hardwood floors put some adhesive backed Velcro on your pads and you will be able to slide. I’ve used it for years playing floor hockey. I use the hook side Velcro but I know several guys that use the loop side and it works well too. It’s easy to put on and cheap. You can peel it off and any residue can be removed with isopropyl alcohol.
  10. Here’s how I attach my C/A. I added 2 buckles to the front inside waist of the pants and a webbing loop to the back. I have buckles on the front of the C/A that attach to the buckles inside the pants and an elastic webbing strap on the back of the C/A that attaches through the webbing loop on the back of the pants. Works really well. No issues at all.
  11. Nohtaram, l had the same issue as you with that flap. My solution was to undo the lacing from the webbing tabs on the front of the flap and add 2 new webbing loops to the top of the flap and feed the top of the lacing through these new webbing tabs. I also tucked the flap in front of the internal padding so it no longer interferes with my C/A. Note I don’t use the internal belt.

    @mikemc620, I used 1.5mm plastic.

    Warrior G5

    The small hole in the glove T is likely an alignment mark put in by the material cutter ( usually a laser) at the factory. It helps the worker that’s assembling the glove align the parts as they are assembled. The hole should be in line with the edge of the glove however if you can see the hole then your T will be slightly larger than it should be, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Smaller volume factories that cut the parts by hand or with a cutting table that uses a knife blade instead of a laser would mark this point with a pen. I design kiteboarding equipment and the factories

    G5 Toe Elastic Tab

    I had some grey Jenpro from the knee pad attachments inside my Warrior pants.
  15. Just got my custom G5 pads and decided to make some tabs to attach my elastic toe laces to. I prefer to have the elastic laces attach at at point that is directly in line with the front of my skate as I find I can use less tension in the elastic, which is easier on the body and yet the pad rotates back in place consistently. I made the same sort of thing for my G3 pads and it worked great for me for 3 years. I made the tabs from some hard plastic, out of an old knee pad, some Jenpro and some lacing. I laced the tabs through the 2 front holes and through the larger circular hole and one
