This design allows for freedom of movement as well as a great feel for improved control as you work on your stickhandling.
The design is enhanced with lightweight polyester construction, helping to reduce overall weight without sacrificing durability. And CCM’s pre-angled one-piece open cuff provides plenty of mobility and protection at the top of the glove.
