The Covert QRL AxyFlex Cuff

by Doug Sears Jr., Special Contributor to Warrior Hockey

A conundrum has vexed the hockey world since the beginning of the sport: How to balance the mobility and protection of the wrist. There have been many attempts to solve this, ever since the 1980s when the long, flappy cuffs Wayne Gretzky favored began to fall out of favor with the rest of the hockey world. Cuffs got shorter, elbow pads longer, and the tug of war began.

The early 1990s saw the Easton GX line, which incorporated a Velcro strap so when the wrist flexed, the cuff would maintain its protection. Players found this to be protective but cumbersome, as it slowed wrist movements and got in the way of movement at times. Since then, the hockey industry has seen short cuffs paired with long elbow pads, wrist bands with built in protection, floating slash guards attached to elbow pads, and even an adjustable cuff that could be worn short or long using a Velcro attachment.
