CCM Extreme Flex E6.9 Intermediate Goalie Catch Glove – Special Edition
The CCM Extreme Flex E6.9 has an all-new design for 2023. Gone is the 600 break that previous Extreme Flex gloves have had. New is the 581 break on the Extreme Flex E6.9 catch glove. The 581 break is based of the 580 break which in the past few years has become a very popular choice among professional goalies. The 581 break has a much better feel and closure compared to the 600 break Extreme Flex gloves. Along with the new 581 break, Goalies Plus has changed the pocket of the E6.9 catch glove to a skate lace pocket on our Special Edition version which we feel makes the closure even better.
Just like the Extreme Flex goalie pads, CCM will be using the new Litecore material in the E6.9 catch gloves thumb area. The Extreme Flex E6.9 with Litecore is 15% lighter then past generations of CCM catch gloves. The Litecore molded cuff thumb design will allow for great consistency over time as it will not flatten out like past generation thumb molds.
Also new is the addition of heat moldable foams to the palm of the CCM Extreme Flex E6.9 catch gloves which allows for easier break in and a more personized fit. On the backside of the catch glove, the strapping system has been redesigned to allow for greater adjustability to the back goalies hand and fingers. CCM will continue to use the FlexMotion Design which is a segmented HD molded foam in the back hand. So what does that mean? It means that the backside of the Extreme Flex E5.9 is flexible without losing protection. By making the Extreme Flex E6.9 flexible on the back of the hand combined with a wide and flexible wrist cuff, the E6.9 combines puck catching performance as well as control in stick handling and shooting techniques.
Speedskin: The outer material of the Extreme Flex E6.9 glove will use the Speedskin material. Although the Speedskin is most noticeable on the leg pads because it reduces friction between the pads and the ice, it is also a very durable material, By using the Speedskin on the E5.9 catch glove, it helps promote overall durability to the glove.
Palm: This area of the Extreme Flex E6.9 catch glove uses a layered felt and foam technique for a natural feel and closure. A common misconception of goalie gloves is that they are like baseball gloves and the outer material is how you break the glove in. This is not true with a goalie glove as there is felt internally that protect the hand. The thicker the felt, the harder to open and close the glove. The thinner the glove, the easier to open and close the glove but shots will hurt – commonly called stingers.
Pocket: Goalies Plus has changed the pocket lacing from a traditional cord string pocket to a skate lace pocket on the Special Edition Series. Skate lace pockets are very common on custom orders and now it will come standard on our E5.9 Special Edition catch gloves. The general opinion on skate lace pockets is that they are softer and therefore help reduce the amount of pop outs or drops while a goalie is in the catching technique.
Internal Strapping: A new cross foam strapping allows for a customized fit on the back of the goalie’s hand and the finger area.
Goalies Plus will be carrying five custom colors:
- Black, Royal Blue & White
- Black & Red
- White, Black & Orange
- All Black
- All White – Backside of the glove is black
