CCM Extreme Flex E4.5 Youth Goalie Leg Pads
New for 2019, CCM has developed their newest adaptation in the Extreme Flex franchise. The all new CCM Extreme Flex E4.5 Youth Goalie Leg Pad pushes the limits of design while providing the competitive advantage of foot speed and seal to the ice.
Starting off with the face and graphic of the CCM Extreme Flex E4.5 Youth Goalie Leg Pad, CCM has used a traditional knee roll as part of their visual design. On the graphic, the CCM E4.5 has created a new visual look that utilizes triangle shaped large color areas, a long color zone to break up the outer edges and inside color zones and then three long triangle accent streaks which contains rippled lining throughout these three zones to create a shadowing effect.
Throughout the pad, you will find CCM’s proprietary “SpeedSkin” synthetic stamped material that creates a new level for style and function. It is designed to perform the best out of all materials offered and is meant to increase the ease of sliding and glide that a goalie needs during use.
Continuing the build of the pad, the CCM E4.5 Youth has new DuaLiteCore Technology which promotes torsional flex to maximize movement on the goalie’s feet and works together with a reinforced stiffer thigh rise to create a better seal and coverage on the ice. The CCM Extreme Flex E4.5 Youth comes stock with a single outer break and a pre-curved single inner break core to help close the goalies 5 hole. CCM E4.5’s new 90 Degree Ultra Soft boot allows the goalie to get into a deep stance and load up for powerful pushes without the pad fighting against the goaltenders leg. The construction of the shin and boot on the CCM E4.5 allows for the pad to give a spring like flex during play to work with the deep and natural movements of the goaltender.
Moving on to the outer gusset of the pad, the CCM E4.5 Youth uses a thinner profile on the top of the pad in the thigh and knee area to allow the pad to hug the leg and sit closer to the body, not only in the stance but down in the butterfly as well. The knee block of the E4.5 knee raiser uses Nylon and PE Foam (Polyethylene) which is a durable, lightweight, and resilient material to provide a softer landing that is less stressful on the goaltender’s knees.
On to the leg channel, the CCM E4.5 Youth features a revised Quick Motion Strapping System that sits on the inner area of the leg channel on top of the goaltender’s calf just below the bend of the knee. CCM’s Quick Motion strap promotes a responsive connection between the goaltender and their pad that can be tightened or loosened up for the goalie’s preference. The Quick Motion strap that sits on the outside of the leg channel is a standard Velcro strap, similar to what is found on the knee. Between the inner calf wrap and sliding surface, the CCM E4.5 Youth feature a calf wedge to provide more support which makes younger goaltenders have more support and comfort in the butterfly.
On the theme of full elastic strapping, the boot of the CCM E4.5 Youth now features a Flexible Toe Bungee style system. These flexible toe ties allow the goalie to get their skate close and tight to the pad so that the CCM E4.5 pad will stay up on their leg in all movements. The toe ties also help the goalie get a large range of emotion with no restriction to help get quick and powerful pushes when in the butterfly.
If you are looking for an adjustable, lightweight and responsive leg pad made for an entry-level goaltender, the CCM Extreme Flex E4.5 Youth Goalie Leg Pad is the choice for you.
