Using cutting-edge biomechanics research and feedback from an impressive list of pro players, CCM has completely revamped the Ribcor line. With new construction properties and an enhanced design, the Ribcor 68K is a truly innovative offering for players that are looking to get the most out of each stride.
The Ribcor 68K features a full composite quarter construction that works in tandem with the all-new FlexFrame Technology. FlexFrame is a series of reinforcements in the skate’s core, with strategically placed flexion zones in the eyelets. This affords players increased forward flexion to generate power and lateral stability to help maximize energy transfer. Smooth Contour Pro padding around the ankle collar provides a comfortable edge, allowing players to dig deeper into turns with ultimate comfort.
Inside the skate, CCM uses a new contoured heel lock design. This design replaces the need for the Pump from previous Ribcor models. Now, the ultra-comfortable and secure fit is built right in. Multi-density, symmetrical foam anatomically wraps around the player’s foot and ankle, offering a custom feel and increased comfort. Also, the 68K has CCM’s TotalDri liner with Durazone abrasion protection. This liner wicks moisture away from the foot, and provides wear reinforcement to high stress areas of the skate.
Further enhancing comfort and protection, the Ribcor 68K employs a 7mm felt tongue with embossed lace bite protection. This tongue uses reinforced felt layers to maximize protection, stabilize the foot, and provide unmatched comfort.
