CCM Premier R1.5 Junior Goalie Glove
The original Premier Glove was the first one piece glove to gain acceptance in the show, and they certainly haven't stopped improving. The R1.5 delivers some serious value for developing goalies, allowing them to adjust to the tender favorite glove style without breaking the bank. This edition sees an adjustment or optimization to the alignment and balance of the glove. Leveraging their previous 580/90 designs, CCM tweaked the width of the cuff and length of the fingers in the trapper to better balance blocking and catching areas to align with modern preferences. In doing so, they were able to maintain the position of the breaks to allow players to continue enjoying the benefits they offer for puck control. Meanwhile, an anatomical hand strap redesign has improved comfort and feel on the puck, and allows for quicker easy adjustment when on the ice. Finally, we haven't heard of too many pads that were more game ready out of the box than this Premier line, meaning adjusting to a new trapper has never been easier.

Keys to a Proper Fit:
- The goalie's fingers should extend out to the end of the finger stalls of the inside palm to ensure a proper fit. However, any more than 1/2" from the tip of the goaltender's finger to the end of the finger stall and the goaltender will not have the leverage needed to properly close and control the glove.
- The heel of your hand should line up with the heel and cuff of the catcher. If not, the proper balance between the cuff and catching portion of the glove may be disturbed, making the glove too cumbersome while sacrificing protection.
