When deciding on a new pair of hockey skates, your focus should be on fit. If you’re unsure which skate line fits your foot best, or you’re looking for an accurate measurement, visit your local Pure Hockey. CCM’s Ribcor line is their high profile skate, best suited for those with a high volume foot. But CCM has placed a focus on providing a flexible boot in the Ribcor 80K, which makes this new skate an excellent option for players with many different foot dimensions.
To create this flexible boot, CCM uses a 3-D lasted composite quarter package and their innovative Flexframe technology. This new feature was developed based on industry leading biomechanics research conducted with NHL players to provide excellent forward flexion to help players generate more power and lateral stability. The variable stiffness of the boot helps to maximize energy with every stride, ideal for the elite players who are looking to gain the extra edge every time they step on the ice.
Attached to the boot, the Ribcor 80K skate includes CCM’s new Speedblade Xchange System holder. The Speedblade XS uses BladeLock technology to switch out a broken blade quickly and efficiently. Simply roll the BladeLock dial until you feel resistance, then pull the damaged blade out. Replace your runner and turn back the dial to fully lock in the new blade. Once you complete this easy process, you’re ready to get back on the ice. And because the blade is tightly secured in this positive-lock mechanism, energy from the boot to the blade is maximized with every stride.
The runner CCM attaches to their new holder is the top-end Speedblade XS1 Black. This premium oxide-treated blade offers a longer edge life, higher resistance to corrosion, and features 12% more height than standard blades, resulting in better turns and overall performance.
Inside the 80K boot, CCM uses many high-end technologies to give you excellent comfort and protection. Their ADPT memory foam ankle pads are symmetrical foam which wrap anatomically around your foot for a customized fit and ultimate comfort. Around the collar of the boot, the Smooth Contour Pro comfort pad offers even more ankle and foot comfort. And for the liner, CCM includes their TotalDri Pro+ with Durazone abrasion protection. This high-performing, moisture-wicking material keeps your feet dry and skates light throughout the game.
For an enhanced fit, the Ribcor 80K includes the CCM Orthomove footbed. This technology offers comfortable material where your foot meets the padding. And where the footbed meets the bottom of the boot, a rigid base is included to help promote power with every stride without sacrificing that superior comfort. The Orthomove also includes customized inserts that allow you to adjust the fit of your skate based on the arch support you want and need.
The 80K model also features a lightweight composite midsole for enhanced energy transfer, an extra stiff carbon composite outsole with exhaust system for torsional rigidity, and CCM’s Tritech Pro tongue - a three-layered, 7mm black felt tongue with HDPE foam and an injected lace-bite prevention zone for ultimate comfort and protection at the top of the skate.
With a plethora of top innovations, the new Ribcor 80K skates are constructed for elite-level players who skate 4-5+ times per week and want skates that will offer them all the performance features they need to play their best.
