The 2019 CCM Jetspeed Vibe Junior Hockey Skate is a Source for Sports Exclusive model based on the Jetspeed FT470 skate, with key upgrades taken from the Jetspeed FT480 and the FT2 skate. These hockey skates boast a RocketFrame Composite boot with MetaFrame technology. This composition provides an ergonomic boot shaping system guaranteeing a comfortable fit made from NHL-caliber, lightweight composite material.
The CCM SpeedBlade Xchange holder and steel system, as seen on the high end Jetspeed FT2 skate and the Ribcor 80K skate, is another significant upgrade found on the 2019 CCM skates.
The Jetspeed Vibe Skates feature MetaFrame Technology in the quarter package which offers an ergonomic boot shape that feels great out of the box and can be further customized with heat molding. The synthetic composite boot also provides a good skating performance and a rigid material to generate power from.
CCM’s Jetspeed line is built with a tapered fit in mind. The forefoot is slightly narrow and the heels/ankle area is narrow and anatomical.
The traditional 7mm felt tongue featured on the CCM Vibe skates is the same one seen on the FT480 skate. The molded reinforcement layer down the front of the top five eyelets increases comfort and protection without sacrificing forward flexion. With molded lace-bite protection, the thick felt allows the tongue and boot to wrap nicely around your foot while still being able to provide maximum comfort. The tongue also features the bright red Jetspeed FT2 cosmetics, offering a more visually appealing hockey skate.
CCM’s TotalDri liner is comfortable and dries out quickly between ice times. Just like the FT480, the Vibe skate also has Durazone abrasion protection applied to the top two eyelets for additional durability in areas where the tongue can create the most friction with the liner.
The Smooth Contour comfort pad is the soft padding located at the top collar of the boot and is a big improvement over previous models. When cutting hard on tight radius turns, this padding will help prevent the boot from biting into your foot.
The CCM SpeedBlade XS holders were created to provide extreme speed, maximum energy transfer and allow players to easily swap out their blades. The holder features CCM's own BladeLock technology to secure the runners in place, while also offering a simple way to change them without the use of any tools. The lock dial mechanism tightly secures the steel to the holder, which ultimately should translate into better energy transfer when skating.
SpeedBlade XS1 is a premium stainless steel that has an oxide treatment to provide a harder outside edge to the steel in order to hold an edge longer and prevent “slip-outs”. XS1 steel is 2mm taller than standard the XS model to provide tighter turns and longer sharpening life. These CCM runners are also seen on the Jetspeed FT2 skates.
The CCM anatomical response footbed is one of CCM’s standard insoles. It provides a comfortable surface for the foot to land on, and a barrier between you and the rivets. The medium density foam insole has contoured edges to cup the heel of the foot and is ventilated to keep your feet cool and dry. To completely and surely dry the skate boot, remove the insoles from the skate after each ice time.
The Source for Sports exclusive model features symmetrical multi-density memory foams that heat mold easily and will provide customized fit and comfort.
