So when you cut down on that extra weight while getting the same great protection, that is a lethal combination. The low-profile design of these pads, especially on the shoulders, is what makes this such a popular choice for pros and consumers. The less bulk, the more mobility you have, and that is the other big theme CCM wanted to touch on.
Another thing that the pros and consumers were complaining about was the chest piece riding up on your neck when you put it on. With the new sternum construction, they added comfort foams around the collar and placed the sternum guard underneath the other 2 pieces, which gives the shoulder pads that low-profile feel that doesn’t get in the way. They also slightly changed the fit for the shins and elbows to be more anatomical, so that when you put it on, it stays as close to your body as possible, reducing any extra bulk. So if you wanted some more insight into CCM’s goals for this line, check out the video below for more information.
