Given the success of the Lakota, Nike has developed a defensive head that will mimic similar features of the Lakota but will be able to deliver more of a punch. By widening the face shape and reinforcing the sidewalls the Nike Alpha is the ultimate defensive machine.
Weighing in at a respectable 5.2 ounces, the Nike Alpha is one of the lightest defensive heads on the market. This head also has a texturized checkered print design on the bottom rail that is not only esthetically pleasing but also allows the defenseman to have more grip when checking your opponent.
If you are an offensive minded defenseman that likes to clear the ball and score goals then this head will help enhance your skills.
