The much anticipated CCM Extreme Flex 4 has finally arrived. As seen on NHL goaltenders such as Carey Price and Pekka Rinne the new E-Flex brings massive changes to the already mega popular line. CCMs DUAL1ITE core is a prominent new feature in this years E-Flex. The new pad core brings in the E-Flex 4 at 4.7 lbs, and 15% lighter than the E-Flex 3. The DUAL1ITE core does not only cut back on a significant amount of weight it also allows for a better torsional rotation of the pad and an improved ice seal. Similar to the PREMIER 2 the E-Flex 4 comes stock with CCM’s quick motion strapping. CCM has eliminated all traditional leather strapping and replaced it with a responsive Velcro system that allows for faster velocity when dropping into the butterfly and quicker on ice recovery. Paired with the quick motion strapping on the E-Flex 4 is the ever more popular bungee toe tie system. The bungee system is quicker and more effective than traditional skate lace, allowing for greater pad stability and range of motion in he goaltenders foot. Not only is this CCMs lightest and most effective E-Flex pad yet but it is also their more comfortable with the addition of molded calf protectors and knee stack material the E-flex 4 provides a solid wrap around the goaltenders leg.
