CCM Extreme Flex Pro Special Edition Review

CCM Extreme Flex Pro Special Edition Review

CCM Cover 250 pxInGoal Magazine was the first to get an up-close look at the new CCM Extreme Flex Pro pads back in September, including a day on the ice with Canadiens’ star Carey Price and a visit to the Montreal factory of legendary father-and-son equipment designers Michel and Patrick Lefevre.

Now, after more than a month of testing with goaltenders from a wide range of backgrounds and experience ranging from beer league to major junior and Canadian University, InGoal has launched the first in-depth review of the new line from hockey’s oldest manufacturer. With 16 pages of images and information, it provides a complete breakdown of what to expect – and contrary to the assumptions of some, what not to expect – from a line that was built around the puck-stopping preferences of Price.

The CCM Extreme Flex Pro was designed to be a softer, more flexible alternative to the Reebok P4 line, with a flatter boot break that allowed the goaltender to feel more connected to the pad, especially down around the skate and shin, moving with them as a more-responsive extension that is ideal for those goalies that like to play a more reactive or athletic style.

    Always go to see CCM back in the show. The new pads remind me of the original Gatekeeper pads. I always hope that CCM will eventually redo the CCM Vector Pro Pattern, Miller and Brodeur.
