The CCM Extreme Flex E5.9 Intermediate Leg Pads offer many technologies seen on the E-Flex 5 Pro pad, but at a more affordable price point. The use of CCM’s proprietary DUAL1TECORE, Quick Motion Strapping System, and SpeedSkin external make the E5.9 an excellent value option.
The CCM EFlex 5.9 leg pads are wrapped in CCM’s proprietary SpeedSkin material. SpeedSkin is just as thick and durable as traditional Jenpro, but its embossed texture allows for an effortless slide.
The core of the E5.9 goalie pad is made up of CCM’s DUAL1TECORE Technology. While also being incredibly light, the DUAL1TECORE gives the pad a different flex profile in key areas. The boot and shin of the EFlex 5.9 are soft and allow for torsional flex, feel and mobility. Above the knee, the pad has added stiffness to maintain seal and structure along the ice.
The break setup on the E-Flex 5.9 pad consists of one outer break, paired with an internal pre-curved single break. This gives goalies flex at the knee and five hole closure, while maintaining the pad’s seal to the ice.
Boot Angle & Toe Taper
To maintain flexibility and compliment the DUAL1TECORE, the E-Flex 5.9 has a deep ultra soft boot channel. This 90 degree boot angle gives goalies a soft feel, while making power pushes and other movements easier.
CCM uses recessed foam with a removable knee cradle wrap to allow customizability and comfort. This deep knee cradle is designed to help close the five hole and prevent you from falling off the knee stack, while still having unrestricted mobility.
Knee & Thigh Protection
The E5.9 does not have any knee/thigh protection included. The wider recessed knee cradle works best with an independent kneepad; a kneepad is also generally recommended for shot and impact protection.
The EFlex E5.9 features CCM’s Quick Motion strapping system. Through work with the biomechanics team at Western University, CCM was able to find out what straps were actually needed on a pad, along with which configuration performed the best. The two velcro calf straps and knee strap make the pad lighter, along with giving the pad great responsiveness and butterfly drop speed. The toe bridge of the EFlex 5.9 has a velcro bungee system, in the place of traditional skate lace. CCM’s bungee system is quick and secure, and allows for more flexibility, easing the stress on goalies’ joints.
