The CCM Jetspeed Skates Review

The skate designers at CCM hooked me up with a pair to test them out way early. I’ve been skating on the CCM JetSpeed 300 skates since January and although I wasn’t sure about the name at first I’m a big fan of the skate. Here’s my review on these bad boys.

Although the JetSpeed 300 is a model below their top skate in the JetSpeed line-up, I’ve found them to perform just as good as any top level skate model I’ve ever skated on or tested.

One of the features that I’m the most excited about the JetSpeed skates is the fit. They were a great fit in the heel right away (something our store was critical of with the RBZ skates). This is going to be a huge advantage for CCM as there aren't many skates on the market that lock the heel as well as the JetSpeed.

CCM achieves this new level of heel lock with the design of their new fully contoured composite shell - the RocketFrame. It’s designed to provide a higher overall level of support while improving heel lock. And it works.

The comfort of the entire skate was really good out of the box - once I heat fitted them I had virtually zero break in time during my first game. While the fit in the heel is quite snug, the fit through the forefoot and instep is a bit more on the generous side. This is a good thing because this is the most common foot shape we see on our fitting bench – narrow volume heel & achilles/wider volume forefoot.

This skate is really light. CCM has used a selection of lightweight components like their new dual zone clarino liner that’s really comfortable and dries quickly, and a full composite outsole with exhaust vents to achieve this.

I found the upper of the skate to be pretty stiff. Because I don’t like a skate that’s too stiff in the upper my preference was to drop the top eyelet to allow a greater range of motion and get over top of the skate better. I was previously wearing 20K's and did not have to do this.

It also seemed to lessen any lace bite across the top eyelet area. And that’s not a knock on the tongue – I like the tongue on the JetSpeed – it’s very close to the felt tongues that pros use on their custom skates without the added bulk and weight.

The top JetSpeed skate comes with a pair of CCM custom Curex insoles as well as a pair of standard issue insoles. The custom CCM Currex insole is really comfortable and can be custom fit by us to your foot's arch profile. It's available in three different arches - high, medium and low. Once properly fit, the Currex arch cradle will help distribute pressure evenly to stabilize your foot and improve responsiveness.

This is the first time I've actually played on the Speedblade 4.0 holder (besides demo ice times). I like it - it feels stiff and responsive. I custom profiled the steel to 13' radius with a forward pitch - it might be more of a personal preference. I like a more aggressive forward pitch and think that almost all new skates could have more forward pitch out of the box (but that's where our sharpening department is here for).

We'll also carry exclusive Source for Sports models featuring upgrades that provide really excellent value: · Jetspeed Control (based off the JetSpeed 290) - $399 Sr, $299 Jr, $129 Yth · Jetspeed Vibe (based off the JetSpeed 280) - $299 Sr, $199 Jr · Jetspeed Shock (based off the JetSpeed 270) - $199 Sr, $149 Jr

The line-up JetSpeed skates are worth checking out no matter what price point you’re looking at
