The CCM RIBCOR Titanium Hockey Skate is based on the RIBCOR 76K Skates, with upgrades from the 80K and 78K. Key upgrades include the CCM XS1 Black runner that sits 2mm taller than the standard steel you find on the 76K Skate, and an upgraded TotalDri liner taken from the 78K Skate.
The MetaFrame Technology in the quarter package of the 76K offers an ergonomic boot shape that feels great out of the box and can be further customized with heat molding. The RocketFrame composite boot also provides a rigid material with structural stiffness to generate power from.
The Titanium Skate has a felt tongue with molded lace-bite protection offering the player with a traditional feel with newer lace-bite technology. The molded protection is a key feature found on the elite level 80K Skate.
CCM’s TotalDri liner is a major upgrade to this skate; it is extremely comfortable and dries out quickly between ice times. The Titanium also has Durazone abrasion protection applied to the top three eyelets and extends around the tendon for added durability where the tongue can create the most friction with the liner.
SpeedBlade XS is a quick-release holder with bladelock system that makes steel changes super easy. 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 an upgraded feature from the 80k’s which sit 2mm taller than standard the XS model to provide tighter turns and longer sharpening life.
The CCM anatomical response footbed. Not much to talk about as it 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.
