CCM launches and relaunches both brand new and returning tech in their updated Axis 2.9 goalie catcher for 2022. The new catcher features LiteCore in the thumb and cuff constructions, a Cross Form strap, Speed Skin, Form Fit fingers, Flexmotion 2, and the highly anticipated 591 glove break to bring you the best performance and results. The Source Exclusive version of the Axis 2.9 goalie glove features a Single-T pocket with skate lace webbing, D3O enhanced palm, as well as unique color options that are different than what's offered in the CCM catalog.
Over the exterior of the Axis 2.9 catcher, CCM uses its traditional Speed Skin material for amazing maneuverability. Speed Skin is incredibly lightweight, and the game-ready fit makes it easy to break the glove in quickly. The HD foam Flexmotion 2 backhand offers amazing mobility while keeping your glove hand fully protected.
The Axis 2.9 debuts the brand new 591 glove break angle, particularly optimized for better closure, feel, and responsiveness for the butterfly goalie. When first trialling the glove, you may notice that it feels and closes very similarly to the 590 break, which is no coincidence. The 591 break is modelled after the 590 break with some modifications made along the inside and over the outward constructions.
The source exclusive Axis 2.9 pocket uses a Single-T design, which is different than the catalog model. The webbing in the pocket also features skate lace, whereas the catalog version features nylon string. The source exclusive Axis 2.9 model features upgraded D3O smart material.
The SureGrip palm is reminiscent of the materials used often in pro and high-level gear for players and goalies alike. It is a grippy, synthetic fabric that offers comfort, great performance, and amazing responsiveness.
The new Cross Form strap was designed specifically to augment that bond between your hand and the trapper. Coupled with the Form Fit fingers, the trapper has gained an even better fit and feel overall throughout the hand.
