Flex is such an important component of goalie gear that CCM went as far as naming one of their best selling lines of equipment after it. Pushing forward the mobile chest protector market, CCM has released the E2.9 intermediate goalie chest protector, and we at Source for Sports have gotten a chance to improve it.
The E2.9 int goalie chest is already a great platform, but there is never a reason to say no to extra protection. In this case we at Source for Sports have added an improved belly protection by beefing it up with HD foam. Extra protection was only one of the upgrades we included however. The special white colourway is also Source for Sports Exclusive to help you stand out in the dressing room.
But enough with our upgrades, the E2.9 intermediate goalie chest protector was already a great chest to start with. Flex, being the partial namesake of the chest took a priority in its design. But segmenting the chest piece, the CCM E2.9 int chest protector is considerably more flexible than its older brethren based off of the original Eflex Shield. This extra flexibility is especially helpful when the goalie needs to make basket catch saves.
Adjustability is also a very important part of designing a solid chest protector, especially in the intermediate sizes when goalies are usually growing. CCM has achieved this by focusing on adjustability in two places specifically. The first is the shoulder, which allows the goalie to adjust the body larger as they grow. The E2.9 chest protector also features an adjustable elbow cup to ensure the arm still fits as the body is adjusted for size.
CCM`s new E2.9 intermediate goalie chest protector offers a great blend of adjustability, protection, and flexibility. By adding even more protection to the package the E2.9 is a chest that should be exciting to goalies in rinks everywhere.
