The new CCM Retro Flex are the same great pads as the 2013 CCM Extreme Flex but in a new RETRO graphic! The name says it all for the CCM Extreme Flex Pro. It is both extremley flexible in the boot and has a good amount of torsional flex in the shin area. This allows the goalie to more easily load his/her push leg in a butterfly recovery as well as easily direct rebounds to the corner. The face of the pad is layered in a soft foam giving the goalie closer rebounds.
The new 90 degree boot angle is both flatter and softer than what is found on it's Reebok counterpart, the Premier 4. The knee and calf landings are bindingless to provide maximum durability. The tight leg channel with calf velcro allows the goalie to maintain control of the pad without having to wear the leather straps tight. The open knee craddle allows ample space for bigger knee guards as well as offering superb pad rotation and balance. Unlike the Reebok P4, the CCM EFlex pads have an flat inside medial (inside) edge, which means that the goalie is more stable and in control when in the butterfly. The knee lock Velcro can attach to the outside of the knee craddle or to the outside calf wrap.
The new CCM Retro Flex Pro leg pads are the perfect combination of a butterfly and hybrid style pad.
