The all new LT 98 catch glove has several new innovations for 2015. The design has been optimized to open the catch surface and provide a wider deeper T-web pocket to maximize catching performance. New precision molded Carbon fiber palm, back thumb and cuff front provide lighter weight increase protection and more precise solid shape to enhance performance. The internal hand features a textured grip base for greater control and grip. The material also features an antimicrobial treatment. Separate finger stalls align the hand and provide for added control and increased leverage to close the glove more securely. The back hand features a two part closure with stretchable neoprene and mesh internal glove design provide for hand security and reduce glove movement during hard puck impacts. New style back hand strapping system allows for a greater amount of adjustment or tension to be used for hand retention for a precise fit. New wrist strap adjustment system features a control and comfort foam pad over the internal wrist strap and allows tighter wrist strap adjustment and for greater range of motion in the wrist even with the strap fully tensioned. The new T-web has a deeper pocket and wider T-top increasing the amount of web area. The T-top features new plastic support stays that extend into the body of the glove keeping the web more open and durable over the life of the glove. Larger back cuff opening increase wrist mobility and adds room for forearm padding. Full pro Spec construction adds extra reinforcement to the outer finger perimeter and T-web, and added protection in the palm and thumb, and double layer finger and thumb loops. Extra-large back hand protection features a high density fingertip deflection pad, high density padding over the fingers and mid back hand, and can be fully opened to access all the hand adjustment straps and allow for quicker drying. The front cuff box has no binding construction to maximize usable blocking surface with a flared cuff design to prevent puck skip over and uses high density foam internals and a carbon fiber front reinforcement panel.
