This will be your definitive source for all information on the new 2018 Covert QR Edge glove line.  All the details on fit, protection, construction and feel for this new line of anatomical style gloves from Warrior Hockey.

To begin, the Covert QR Edge line is a progression from the Covert QRL line of gloves launched in 2016.  That model line introduced all-new features like our improved Covert Taper fit, Phantom lightweight foams and most noticeable, from a function perspective, the Axy Flex cuff.

For 2018, the Covert QR Edge line add some new features and product improvements to move our design, protection and functional progression forward.  All with the goals of providing the player with a protective glove that moves with the hand and feels butter-soft right off the shelf.  The success and amazing feedback from our Butter-Soft Feel tech and construction method, from Alpha, has now been applied to the full Covert QRE line.

Covert QRE Pro Glove:

The Covert QRE Pro glove is a spec we provide to NCAA and Pro teams in Europe.  This product is taken directly from our professional team offering and is built for high performance, protection and durability.

Th QRE Pro includes a key performance feature from the Covert line, the AxyFlex Cuff.  The free-floating cuff allows moves with your arm/wrist and avoids any interference during play.  The AxyFlex glide panel on the back hand allows the cuff to flex back for optimum range of motion during shooting and stick-handling.  This model also introduces our all-new upgraded ExoFoam package that is super-lightweight multi-density with added flat premium plastics for incredible impact protection(Fingers, backhand, Thumb rolls).  The Pro SmartPalm is a combination of high wear durability Clarino 8080 base layer with an additional Clarino 8080 overlay for maximum durability.   An additional three-segment index finger for added dexterity and grip feel.  Also adding in the WarTech FNC liner for a fresh and clean glove life.  Polygiene bath-treated foams, palms and inner liners wick away moisture from the hand and impede bacteria growth – which causes gloves to stink.

This glove is built for higher end play by semi-pro or AAA players, who are on the ice a lot and are looking for added protection, lightweight and long wearability.

The QR Edge glove is the glove with all the bells and whistles.  It has all the upgraded materials in every part of the glove.  Palms, outer covering, gussets, inner liner, foams and decoration are best in class and premium in every way.

The new and improved AxyFlex floating Cuff is the main feature of the glove.  It allows maximum coverage without any restriction.  The cuff moves with your hand and arm and doesn’t get in the way of stick handling and wrist/snap shots.

Ultimate wrist mobility freedom when stick handling and shooting all while offering full slash protection coverage. The floating cuff moves with your hand.

The QR Edge has an all new upgraded Exo Protect Foam package that is super-lightweight with added premium plastics for superior impact protection(Fingers, backhand, Thumb rolls).  Our product development team worked on the all-new protection package to improve on impact management without adding weight.  Their impact test results show a 26% increase in impact protection and absorption from the previous QRL Phantom Foam package.  This was achieve by using foams that usually used in hockey helmets.  The best foams for a weight to impact absorption ratio.

High-end The SmartPalm+ is a combination of high wear durability and superior stretch/feel of black Clarino base layer with an additional Gatorskin Clarino overlay for maximum durability.  Stretch and vented finger gussets for maximum mobility and grip and release of the fingers.  3D Mesh Thumb stall for additional ventilation and stretch for the AxyFlex Thumb to activate.  An additional three-segment index finger for added dexterity and grip feel.
