The CCM Extreme Flex Shield E1.5 chest and arm protector is brand new for 2016, and it is built specifically with today's Junior and Youth goalie in mind. It is a very agile unit, and it uses many of the same design features that you'll find on the new E-Flex Shield pro chest & arm protector.
The thick, segmented molded PE foam shoulder wings have a slightly more narrow design to enable the arms to move well, though the shoulder joint, upper chest & belly are full covered for excellent protection. In keeping with the premier line, the top of the wings have separate wing and chest adjustment tabs that allow the goalie to both customized the height and horizontal position of the floaters, as well as the height of the belly pad on the goalie's torso. The sternum guard is made of molded PE foam for great protection to this sensitve area, and anatomical PE foam blocks provide excellent belly protection. A single, compression molded HD foam shoulder cap provides excellent protection while also allowing for a full range of motion.
The arms are made of squared-off blocks of molded PE foam blocks for max coverage and predictable rebounds. A large, 3-inch wide single elastic strap keeps the arms in place and also allows for 1-2" of length adjustability for a custom fit. An independent adjustable elbow protector provides some of the best protection in the business.
The rib protection is made of low density foams and does a great job of extending the coverage higher and deeper than CCM chest guards of the past have done. Finally, dual adjustment straps around the mid & lower back help customize the fit of the unit to the goalie's torso.
