CCM Premier R1.5 Junior Goalie Blocker
Premier blockers are among the most protective in the game, and the R1.5 is no exception. Developing goalies will find a durable, safe, and performance oriented option. With centered hand placement and an adjustable cuff players can customize their fit to their preference and open up area to increase mobility for stick-handling. Unique embossed synthetic hand grips in the palm provide an unreal level of hold, and will keep you confident in you pokes and sauce.
The binding-less face also aids in consistency and is more durable over the long run, lacking the bindings and transitional areas that result in early decay. While laminated dual density foams aid in controlling rebound direction. Finally, LD foam and an injection molded lock thumb combine to keep those vulnerable fore finger and thumb areas safe in even the most unpredictable situations.
Measure your hand from the heel of the palm to the tip of the middle finger, then consult the chart below to find the size that will work for you.

Key to a Proper Fit:
The blocker should be fitted based on hand size. The goalie's fingers should be no more than 1/4" from the end of the fingers in the palm. If the fingers are too long, chances are the hand tabs that tie down the palm to the blocker are too large. This will cause the blocker to wobble, tilt or rotate on the goaltender's hand, seriously affecting control while limiting coverage (blocking surface).
