CCM Premier R1.9 Intermediate Goalie Catch Glove
New for 2016 is the CCM Premier R1.9 Intermediate Goalie Catch Glove. The Premier series is built for the coverage style goalie who likes to maximize space in the net and is generally using the butterfly as their preferred method of making a save. The Premier glove comes from a long line of series starting with the Koho 560, 570, 580 & 590 series. It then changed names to the Rbk and Reebok Premier series and now to the CCM Premier series. All of these gloves are the same manufacture and same lineage. This style glove has had a cult like following over the years. The R1.9 uses the 590 break, the palm closure of this glove has a different feel from other manufactures. This break allows the glove to close and open fully, allowing the maximum blocking and coverage area. The Premier glove also uses a shallow thumb angle which again maximizes surface area. The one piece cuff has been a fixture on the Premier gloves for years because of the rigidness it provides. The thumb is injection molded so it keeps its natural shape and does not flatten over time.

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.
