CCM Extreme Flex E5.9 Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads – Single Break
Along with the Special Edition Double Break that Goalies Plus offers, we also have the stock Single Break Extreme Flex E5.9 goal pads in all black and all white.. The Double Break offers extra flexibility for the goalie with a narrow or medium butterfly position, the single break is for the goalie with a wide butterfly position. We understand that especially in adults, there would be a portion of the goalie population with wide butterflies that still want a hybrid style pad. From the bottom of the knee to the top of the pad, the Single Break Extreme Flex 5.9 has a stiff zone which works well with a wide butterfly for coverage. The shin and boot area of the Extreme Flex E5.9 pads have softer zones, which allows for more lateral flexibility in the pads which in turn allows the goalie greater range of hybrid movement compared to a stiff “butterfly” style pad.
There are some very noticeable new features to the Extreme Flex E5.9 series on the front side of the pad. Starting with the new knee roll design, CCM has created a uniquely shaped molded knee roll utilize the new CONTROL Knee Roll technology. This technology provides a better seal to the ice in the butterfly position while adding a level of rebound control in the knee area that is unique to the Extreme Flex E5.9 pad. The core of the Extreme Flex E5.9 pad will use the DUAL1TECORE which is extremely lightweight and built to provide better lateral flex in the lower portion of the pad. This core is known for the explosive rebound is creates when the puck rebounds of the shin area. The boot area will have a 90 degree boot with the softer feel that most goalies prefer for quicker and easier recoveries from the butterfly position. CCM will again use the popular Speedskin on the out layer of the E5.9 pads. The Speedskin material is known for its enhanced slidability when the goalie is moving side to side – especially on bad ice surfaces. The E5.9 pad will also come stock with a bungee style toe tie system.
Moving to the backside of the Extreme Flex E5.9 Intermediate pads, you will notice the tight and deep fit that is obtained through the Quick Motion Strapping System (QMSS). The QMSS system keeps the pad tight to the goalie leg which provides better feel and performance for the hybrid style goalie. The knee and landing area of the Extreme Flex 5.9 pad will continue to use the 3D Grip/PE Foam with a raised inner edge stabilizer. This knee design has been known for its excellent pad seal and stability with maximum impact absorption. The knee cradle will also continue to use the same design as the previous generation Extreme Flex 4 series. The knee cradle will feature recessed foam with removable knee cradle wrap which will help seal the 5-hole in the butterfly technique.

Bungee Toe Tie: The CCM Extreme Flex 5.9 intermediate goalie pad comes stock with a bungee toe tie system. For years manufactures 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 and creates more power pushes for the goalie. This toe system 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.
