The CCM JetSpeed FT1 Elbow Padsfeature the same RocketFrame Composite from the JetSpeed FT1 skates in the outer portion of this bicep guard. CCM used composite in this FT1 Line for the first time ever in order to make their gear lighter and more protective than it has ever been before.
The FT1's forearm guard received a big upgrade too, boasting an anatomically-shaped PE insert reinforcement topped with hydrophobic DryFoam. It uses nylon strapping to attach the forearm guard to the body of the elbow pad, allowing all three pieces to flex for next-level mobility. Thanks to this, the new arched bicep strap provides a more secure fit that also helps to promote better range of motion with this updated design.
The CCM JetSpeed FT1 elbow pad was also given significant improvements in the liner. Aside from the microfiber underside of the forearm guard, the rest of the pad consists of their premium laminated DryFoam liner. Right off the shelf, players will notice the significantly softer feel but the big improvement comes in the moisture-management department. CCM strategically used this combination of foams and liner materials to aggressively push sweat out of the pad to minimize moisture absorption. The result is an elite-level elbow pad that stays lightweight and dry all game long.
