Mobile and Massive: New CCM Premier Chest Protector

Mobile and Massive: New CCM Premier Chest Protector

CA teaser (1 of 1)It’s fitting this is the first CCM chest protector to bear the “Premier” brand long associated with Reebok because it is also the biggest departure from the original P1 arm-and-body unit that remains popular and prevalent even in NHL dressing rooms today.

The new CCM Premier Pro is completely redesigned, with more adjustability, better coverage, improved protection, and their new proprietary impact-absorbing D3O foam in the sternum. They even changed the shape of the segmented blocks on the chest and around the belly, using ergonomic design principles to reduce break-in time and increase range of motion. But for all the changes, the first thing that goalies are going to notice is how big they look in it.

That includes Carey Price, who has been wearing the new Premier Pro Chest Protector during this record-setting (and almost certainly award-winning) season with the Montreal Canadiens.

Jonathan Bernier certainly took notice.

When Bernier got to put on the new CCM Premier Pro for the first time last fall, he felt it was too close to the season to adjust to something different from his usual chest protector. But after watching Price in the new unit, he plans to make the swap this summer.

“One thing playing against Carey a couple months ago, you can see his shoulder are really wide,” Bernier told Ingoal Magazine late in the season. “He looks really big and the arms are really mobile.”

The NHL has heard from other teams about the size of Price, and Bernier’s comments matched the feedback from InGoal testers. But there is a lot more to the new CCM Premier Pro Chest Protector than size and protection.
