CCM JETSPEED FAMILY:Meet the face of arguably the best player in the game right now, Connor McDavid. As he gets suited up for a night of dekes, hits, goals, and just pure high adrenaline action, he puts his trust into CCM's Jetspeed FT1 family for protection and mobility. Let's go through this quickly growing protective line to see why it's drawing in some of the best players in the world.
The shoulder pad can benefit players in different ways. If you love dishing out big hits, blocking shots, and are that grinder down in the corner, then you probably want to go with something bulkier like the Super Tacks line. If you're agile, crafty, and need the most amount of mobility to deke and get a quick shot off, then the Jetspeed line is calling your name. The mobility and low profile are incredible, thanks to the Amplified Mobility construction in the front and rear panels.
The panels are split into three pieces which are attached by elastic straps. This new construction allows each piece to move independently to the player's movements. Jetspeed doesn't stop there, because the collarbone protection has a floating two-piece design, and the shoulder caps use three 1" elastic straps that connect to the body of the shoulder pad. With these features, the mobility in the arms are some of the best on the market and allow for a superior range of motion. For protection, the FT1 is made up of a few different high-quality foams. The torso is protected by molded Zotefoam which offers pro-level protection and lightweight feel. Zotefoam is also a closed cell foam meaning that it absorbs less sweat to keep you dryer during the game. The shoulder caps are lightweight, yet super protective with the use of EPP U+Foam, helping players stay light, agile, and still be able to dish out big hits. The bicep guards are a one-piece, molded medium-density foam with a length adjustment strap allowing players to really dial in the fit. Saving the best protection feature for last, Rocketframe Composite is used in the vital areas: sternum, and spine. If you've heard of this technology before, it's because CCM uses this material in their top end skates. Rocketframe Composite reduces weight but increases protection. Another great update that was introduced to the FT1 family is the dual-zone liner, adding moisture management and comfort. The red laminated portion is soft to the touch and helps repel sweat away, while the black portion called, DryFoam, has a vented design to help promote airflow and push that repelled moisture out. The FT1 shoulder pad has a contoured, anatomical fit with a low profile.
CCM has done an extraordinary job of developing the FT1 hockey glove. The FT1 has it all; coverage, durability, mobility, stick feel, and comfort. The first thing I want to point out is the protection it offers with D30 Lite Foam in the fingers and backhand. D30 Lite, which is found in the Super Tacks family, absorbs and dissipates impact energy, keeping you much more protective against slashes and incoming pucks. The D30 rests in-between PE inserts and Zotefoam which helps reduce the weight of the glove but giving elite level protection.
Now you're probably wondering how the feel for the stick is so good. CMM upgraded and re-designed the palm from the QLT glove. The FT1's palm now has a Pro Clarino base with a double-stitched overlay in the palm and thumb. This provides players with a creaseless palm and extended bottom for absolute ultimate stick feel and long-lasting durability. Helping players obtain maximum wrist mobility for dangles and quick shots, CCM introduced a new flared, 3D-shaped flex cuff and cuff roll. The cuff is attached with a piece of flexible fabric to help extend wrist motion and to keep protection where it needs to be. The segmented backhand and three-piece index finger only add more mobility to an already amazing feel and fit right out of the box. Finally, your hand will rest inside the extremely soft laminated liner that will help wick away moisture throughout the game. The fit profile is a tapered fit - which is snug in the fingers and backhand but then opens up in the cuff.
