New for 2016, the Legendary Leferve design team brings you the reengineered CCM Premier R1.9 leg pads. The Premier R1.9 Leg Pad features the lightest injection molded foam core since the inception of the line.
The new Premier R1.9 Sr. Goal pads are engineered to give the goaltender optimal weight balance when in the butterfly, reverse VH and recovery movements. With the new thinner profile on the outside edge, the goaltender will have less interference during pad rotation while going down to the ice. In combination of this thinner outside profile, CCM has incorporated a deeper knee stance by removing the air pillow between the knee and back of the pad. This allows the pad to sit closer to the knee and thigh, further allowing the goaltender to better seal their five hole aiding in more coverage.
The Premier R1.9 goal pad reduces weight throughout the back of the leg channel with a new Pro strapping system. With a single leather strap at the knee, and a single leather strap at the top of the calf channel, the pad is held to your leg in key spots and giving the pad an extremely close feel. CCM has incorporated a 4” wide Velcro calf lock keeping the leg snug into the pad, but allowing fast rotation. Since the growing popularity of the CCM line, the knee lock strap is now angled down into the calf providing a wide open feeling at the knee to accommodate larger knee pads and further promote fast pad rotation down into the butterfly and reverse VH. Featuring a redesigned boot angle, this pad will help promote pucks to rocket into the corners and reduce the risk of negative rebounds back towards the front of the net.
Lastly, the CCM Premier R1.9 goal pad come with a brand new redesigned knee pad meant to sit tight to the knee and tuck under the pants. The new knee pad features a comfy landing side with added knee and thigh protection to not only keep knees safe but to add comfort in the butterfly.
Compared to the Premier Sr. Pro Pads, the Premier R1.9 pads will feature quality construction and materials on the outside skin of the pad along with solid HD foams in the core of the pad.
Utilizing maximum coverage and the fastest pad rotation the Leferve design team has created the Premier R1.9 goal pad is built for the intermediate level goalie wanting the best CCM has to offer.
