Every hockey player’s legs take a brutal beating, now they don’t have to thanks to the Gladiator Socks by Fulton Hockey. The Gladiator sock is constructed with 2 layers for extra protection, the outer shell is 100% Polyester while the inside shell is made of Dyneema Fiber that provides 360 degrees of protection to help prevent skate cuts making this sock your last line of defense. Dyneema is the world’s strongest fiber adding a serious level of protection. The Gladiator Sock is the first customizable cut-resistant hockey sock to provide safe coverage of the entire leg.
What is Dyneema? Dyneema is 15 times stronger than quality steel at equal weight and 30 times lighter than quality steel at equal volume. Dyneema is constructed from a proprietary gel-spinning process that results in incredibly long, straight polymer chains. This results in fusion of extreme strength and supreme softness. It does not absorb or retain water so it remains breathable with better air circulation than cotton, The Dyneema brand is used in medical sutures, commercial fishing, aquaculture nets, ropes, slings, cut-resistant gloves, vehicle, and personal ballistic protection; now that’s protection.
Dyneema technology allows Gladiator Socks to protect the player against skate-blade cuts while enabling flexibility and performance.
