The CCM Extreme Flex E1.5 Junior and Youth goalie pants are a completely new design, built to protect and enhance the play of today's mobile goaltender. They mimic the design of the new Extreme Flex Shield pro pants so you know that you're getting the same design that the pros are using.
New for 2016, the Extreme Flex E1.5 Junior pants use a "Flex Zone System" at the waist - a higher waistband made of segmented foam plates at the sides and the back. This new design provides more protection to the sides of the body while also allowing goalies the flexibility to move as they need to. A slightly taller belly flap provides more coverage at the front, and the pants can be held up by using an exterior belt. The Youth model features a profiled waist design for comfort and complete coverage around the upper waist.
The extrerior of the pants feature segmented molded PE foam pads at the upper thigh & groin. The legs have a more rounded design at the thigh, and the padding is made of solid PE foams for good protection. Additionally, the Junior model has a length extension zipper hidden underneath the exterior belt channel that allows the pant leg to be extended downward by 1" - great for growing goalies (not available on YTH).
The pants themselves are made of 420D high abrasion nylon, with stretch zones in the legs and crotch.
