CCM Premier R1.5 Junior Goalie Catch Glove
New for 2016 is the CCM Premier R1.5 Junior Goalie Catch Glove. The junior premier series has a very popular following with younger goalies. With NHL superstars like Marc Andre-Fluery, Roberto Luongo & Corey Crawford using the CCM Premier series goal equipment, many goalies want to look and play like their hero’s. The Premier series is not just about looking like an NHL goalie, it is built for performance. The Premier R1.5 junior glove is built with a lot of the features of the pro Premier series. The one piece cuff/thumb protection is a great junior feature. Some two piece junior gloves get sloppy over time and the break between the cuff and thumb gets very wide. We have seen a lot of goalies take shots to this opening and get some unnecessary bruising. With the one piece cuff/thumb, this is not an issue since this piece is one solid injection molded piece. The off-set single t also seems to allow junior goalies to open and close the glove properly. Again we see way too many junior gloves on the market today that neither open nor close properly.

CCM E-Flex II Glove Vs. CCM Premier Glove
CCM has two lines of goalie gear, the E-Flex II and the Premier series. Each line is made for a particular style goalie. The E-Flex II line is built for the hybrid style goalie who prefers to use many different save techniques and also likes to have more mobility while playing. The E-Flex II glove is built with a deep thumb angle which helps direct the puck into the pocket. This glove also uses a 600 break angle which is a break that comes straight through the middle of the hand. The CCM Premier series is built for the coverage style goalie who plays big and likes to use the butterfly technique as their preferred save technique. This goalie is always trying to maximize space and size and their goalie gear. The Premier goalie glove has a shallow thumb angle which creates more surface area. The Premier glove also uses a 590 break angle which is a break that is closer to the goalies fingers. Both gloves use a one piece cuff construction and both gloves use the same materials. Depending on your style and needs will determine which CCM goalie glove is right for you.
Sizing Differences: Youth, Junior & Intermediate
Many parents do not understand the sizing terms used in goalie equipment. Youth, junior and intermediate are often confused as too which term goes with which age group. We will explain the differences to help eliminate any errors in the ordering process. Youth goalie gear is the smallest on the market. This is generally for your five year to eight year old goalies. Youth gear is generally less expensive and not made with high quality materials. Higher quality materials and foams at a youth level pose two issues. One; they are too stiff for a small goalie to move around and two; the goalie will outgrow the gear before they even break it in. Therefore it is ok to have lesser quality at the youth goalie gear age group. The junior goalie equipment is for the eight year to the twelve year old goalie. This again is not made with the highest quality materials. The quality is certainly better then the youth gaolie gear however the need for flexibility and movement outweighs the need for high end materials that will last several years. In the junior level gear, specs are more defined and equipment is made with performance in mind. Generally junior goalie equipment will have a lot of performance features that will be found in higher level gear. Lastly is the intermediate level goalie equipment. Intermediate gear is generally for eleven to fourteen year old goalies or even smaller adults. This gear generally uses higher density foams and higher quality materials. Goalies in this age group put a lot of wear and tear on their gear so manufactures need to build it accordingly. Everything about intermediate gear is made with higher level performance features and extra protection features. Players at this age group are playing faster and shooting harder therefore the goalie gear needs to be better as well.
