CCM Extreme Flex E4.9 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads
The new CCM Extreme Flex 4.9 Leg Pads (CCM EFlex 4’s) build off the iconic Stanley Cup winning goalie pad. The new Extreme Flex 4.9 leg pads pushes the limits of design while providing the competitive advantage of foot speed and seal to the ice. CCM uses DualLiteCore Technology that provides a torsional flex to maximize movement on your feet with a reinforced stiffer thigh rise to deliver maximum seal and coverage to the ice. Their quick motion strap system provides the perfect balance of fit and responsiveness to adapt to butterfly drops and recovery. They use a flexible toe string system for a dynamic fit to attach your skate to your pad, thereby optimizing connectivity and mobility.
There are some very noticeable differences in the CCM Extreme Flex 4.9 compared to past generations. The most noticeable difference in the new Extreme Flex 4.9 Goalie pads vs. the 2017 Extreme Flex 3.9 is weight. The 2019 version comes in at 20% lighter. This is because of the new DualLiteCore. This core is very similar to the 2018 Premier Litecore in weight but they do have performance differences. The main performance difference is the DualLiteCore has a torsional flex foam in the upper part of the pad (from the bottom of the knee up) which allows the pad to have more lateral flex. This lateral flex allows the pad to move more independently with the goalie and helps eliminate the feeling of the pad being to stiff or binding the goalie up. This type of pad is generally preferred by hybrid style goalies. One thing we noticed with the new DualLiteCore vs. the older core in the 2017 series was elimination of the need for a double break. In the 2017 generation of the Extreme Flex 3 pads, we offered a double break version because the double break allowed for more flex in the pad from the bottom of knee and up. With the new DualLiteCore, the flex is built into the pad and therefore eliminates the need for that double break.
Another noticeable new feature of the Extreme Flex 4.9 vs. past generations is the strapping systems. The 2019 Extreme Flex series has gone to all elastic strapping in the knee and calf areas. This elastic strapping allows the pad to be worn tighter on the goalies leg while allowing the pad to rotate properly when the goalie goes into the butterfly position. Goalies like the tighter feel while adding performance value, it also makes putting the pads on and taking them off very fast and easy. The elimination of the leather straps also helps reduce the overall weight of the pads.
Also new for 2019 is a new toe tie bungee system. For years manufactures like CCM have used a skate lace to connect the toe of the pad to the toe of the skate. In recent years, after market bungee toe tie products have become very popular because they allow the toe of the pad to stretch from the toe of the skate with an elastic type effect. This stretching and recoiling improves the recovery process of a goalie but also takes pressure off the goalies ankles, knees and hips because it eliminates the quick stop and jerk process that skate lace has when it runs out of slack.
The Extreme Flex 4.9 will continue to use the Speed Skin Technology for the outer material. The material is quicker and more explosive when sliding side to side in the butterfly movements. Speed Skin reduces friction between the pad and the ice and there gives the goalie a better glide. This is very important late in games when the ice conditions are at there worst. In testing, Speed Skin performs better than Clarino and is just as durable.
The CCM Extreme Flex series is made for the “hybrid” or athletic style goalie. Goalies that want movement and flexibility choose this style of pad. The CCM Extreme Flex E4.9 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads are recommended for A thru AAA hockey levels.
