The Sock

The Gladiator’s cut resistance is a function of its construction
  • One outer-lining made entirely of polyester
  • One inner-lining made of Dyneema® –The World’s Strongest Fiber™

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 Gladiator Sock is cut-resistant, not cut-proof!

Dyneema ®

Dyneema® –The World’s Strongest Fiber™
  • 15 times stronger than quality steel at equal weight
  • 30 times lighter than quality steel at equal volume
  • Doesn’t absorb or retain water
  • Breathable, Washable, Wearable: Better air circulation than cotton

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.
