A polyester shell cases a liner made with Dyneema®—the world’s strongest fiber adding the final layer of protection against serious or even career-threatening injuries related to skate-blade cuts. The Gladiator Sock is the first customizable cut-resistant hockey sock to provide safe coverage of the entire leg; from ankle all the way up to where the leg meets the hip joint.
The solution is a knit sock with a loose-hanging liner, to grab and drag skate-blades, keeping them from direct contact with the leg. The Gladiator’s construction allows for double-layered resistance, and the last layer is the strongest possible line of defense against skate-blade cuts.
The Dyneema® liner found in the Gladiator Sock ensures a last line of defense against skate-blade cuts while providing a comfortable, flexible feel that enables the performance hockey players expect to maintain. Dyneema® is a fiber invented by DSM, a Netherlands-based company. It derives its enormous strength from a proprietary gel-spinning process that results in incredibly long, straight polymer chains. The result is a fusion of extreme strength and supreme softness. The Dyneema® brand is used in a wide and ever-increasing range of applications such as medical sutures, commercial fishing and aquaculture nets, ropes, slings, cut-resistant gloves and apparel, vehicle, personal ballistic protection, and now, cut-resistant hockey socks.
