Brand new for 2019 are the CCM JetSpeed FT480 Senior Hockey Skates! The CCM JetSpeed FT480 Skates build upon the concepts that made the JetSpeed line one of the best on the market by making key improvements to help maximize comfort, durability, quickness, and top speed!
Jumping right into the boot, CCM has gone with a 3D-lasted, two-piece quarter package. This lightweight composite boot features an ergonomic shape, which hugs the foot all the way around, ensuring that your heel stays locked in place to help generate maximum speed!
The quarter package is constructed with CCM’s RocketFrame composite material. This NHL-caliber material is not only extremely lightweight but features elite levels of protection and durability, as well.
CCM incorporated a 7mm felt tongue with molded Lace-bite Protection on their new JetSpeed FT480 Skates. This design provides ultimate protection and comfort and is paired with lace-bite protection that better protects high-wear areas for improved longevity!
On the interior of the skates, the JetSpeed FT480 Hockey Skates feature CCM’s best: the TotalDri Pro Liner. This lightweight material helps wick away any moisture, helping keep your feet dry and your skates light. For durability purposes, CCM included their DuraZone Abrasion Protection. These are abrasion patches that have been added to the interior of the boot where the eyelets are. These are high-wear areas, and by adding this feature, it greatly increases boot durability and comfort.
Continuing on the comfort aspect, CCM again incorporated their smooth contour pro padding around the collar of the boot, which provides improved durability and superior foot and ankle comfort. This is partnered with multi-density memory foam in the ankle that wraps anatomically around your foot for a customized fit.
Moving to the bottom half of the JetSpeed FT480 Hockey Skates is CCM’s brand new holder, known as the SpeedBlade XS holder! These holders were developed as a quick and easy way to replace blades on the fly, while ensuring you with a consistent feel and performance every time. The holders feature a positive-lock mechanism that tightly secures the blade to the holder to prevent the blade from loosening during gameplay. The consistently tightly-secured blade maximizes energy transfer from the boot to the holder and from the holder to the blade in every stride.
