The CCM Extreme Flex Shield pro goalie pants are a completely new design, built to protect and enhance the play of today's mobile goaltender. They feature new technology to help goalie's control rebounds, and also use some older tried but true features that goalies have come to love.
New for 2016, the Extreme Flex Shield pants use a "Flex Zone System" at the waist - a higher waistand made of segmented molded lightweight foam plates at the sides and the back. This new design provides more protection to the sides of the body while also allowing goalie's 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 both an exterior and an internal belt.
The extrerior of the pants feature segmented ADIPRENE foam pads at the upper thigh & groin. This new foam deadens impacts and helps goalies more easily control rebounds to this area. The legs have a more rounded design at the thigh, and the padding is made of 1-piece solid HD foam for incredible protection. Additionally, there is 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.
The pants themselves are made of 420D high abrasion textured nylon, with stretch zones in the legs and crotch.
