Brand new for 2021 are CCM’s latest iteration of the RibCor skate line, the CCM RibCor 86K Ice Hockey Skates! This new skate is designed to help maximise agility on the ice and give a good balance of comfort, fit and performance.
Starting off with the quarter package, the RibCor 86K Hockey Skates feature a composite quarter package using an injected synthetic composite. This durable boot shapes your foot better for a good fit around your foot. This boot will have a good structural stiffness and a performance stiffness of 130 which will generate a good skating performance.
New for this year on the RibCor 86k Hockey Skates will be the ability to customise your tongue with the new XS tongue system. The replaceable felt tongue with 6mm felt and an asymmetrical flex point will better fit to your foot shape while offering good lace bite protection. And if you prefer a thinner or thicker tongue, the XS system allows for easy replacement of the tongue giving you a customisable fit out of the box.
Onto the interior, the RibCor 86K Hockey Skates feature an HD microfibre liner. This high-performance moisture wicking material works to keep players as dry and comfortable as possible all game long. Going hand in hand with this liner is the ADPT memory foams. These symmetrical foams wrap snugly but comfortably around players feet, providing an anatomical type fit and comfort for all different foot shapes.
Moving to the lower half of the RibCor 86K Hockey Skates is where you will find the SpeedBlade XS holder! On the back of each holder, players will find what is known as CCM’s BladeLock Technology. This is a positive-lock dial that tightly secures the blade to the holder and helps prevent the blade from loosening during gameplay. In turn, this design provides players with consistent and maximised energy transfer within each stride. For added comfort there is the CCM Ortholite footbed for increased support.
Partnered with the new SpeedBlade XS holder are the XS Stainless Steel runners. These runners provide a long-lasting edge for long-term performance.
With the new XS tongue system and upgrades in just about every aspect of the skate, the CCM RibCor 86K Ice Hockey Skates are for the recreational-level skater that is looking to further enhance protection, comfort, and performance!
