CCM Jetspeed FT6 Pro Protective Review
It's one of the most exciting times of the year -- and we're not talking about playoff hockey.
It's time for brands to begin releasing new hockey equipment ahead of the upcoming season. With so many new products to choose from, Larry's Sports has you covered with reviews of the latest and greatest.
First up, is the newest CCM Jetspeed FT6 Pro protective line.
CCM's Jetspeed protective equipment is a popular offering amongst youth, professional, and adult players. The line is known for being lightweight and focused on mobility without sacrificing protection -- and this year's no different.
One of the newest features for this year's line of products is the introduction of CCM's Aer-Tec Thermoregulation System. The new feature focuses on absorption, evaporation, and ventilation. The payoff is increased comfort and being able to keep players cooler in the heat of the game, thanks to increased air circulation and sweat evaporation.
Now, without further ado, here's a look at each piece of the new CCM Jetspeed FT6 Pro protective line.
CCM Jetspeed FT6 Pro Gloves
The Jetspeed FT6 Pro gloves feature a tapered fit, meaning that it's tighter in the fingers, palm, and backhand, but opens up for more mobility and wrist movement.
For the gloves, Aer-Tec can be found in the backhand to help players manage heat and avoid the feeling of gloves running hot during a game. The protection package features a mix of CCM's Zotefoam, a high-density PE foam, and PE inserts. This ensures that the glove will be both lightweight and offer protection for elite-level players.
Finally, players will also notice great off-the-shelf comfort and durability, great for anyone hitting the ice multiple times a week. This is thanks to a pro Clarino palm material which is reinforced with a Sensalast overlay for durability.
FT6 Pro Hockey Pants
Lightweight, breathable, and mobile, these hockey pants feature the Aer-Tec system and Dryfoam Technology liner to absorb less sweat and maintain a lightweight feel -- you'll barely even notice you're wearing them.
For the pants, Aer-tec ventilation can be found in the hip and kidney padding, helping keep players cool and dry. Another notable improvement is the floating spine protector and molded hybrid spine shield, providing added protection for anyone battling it out in front of the net or on the boards.
CCM Jetspeed FT6 Pro Shoulder Pads
Building on the popularity and success of the FT4 Pro Shoulder Pads, the FT6 Pro model incorporates Aer-tec into the chest protector for improved airflow.
CCM's Zotefoam ensures a lightweight, moisture-resistant pad, while molded HD foam in the spine, biceps, clavicle, and chest adds extra protection without bulk.
The Jetspeed FT6 Pro shoulder pads will be a hit for any players that want mobility and a lightweight design, without sacrificing protection.
CCM Jetspeed FT6 Pro Elbow Pads
Popular for their lightweight, comfortable design, these three-piece elbow pads follow the elbow's natural movements for optimal protection.
High-density foam and ventilation ports in the bicep and forearm offer breathability, while the JDP Elbow Cap provides additional protection.
The nylon forearm strap and Y-shaped middle lock strap keep the pad securely in place during play. Overall, it feels like CCM made some welcome improvements to the already successful FT4 Pro elbow pads and these are expected to be a popular offering in the months to come.
CCM Jetspeed FT6 Pro Shin Pad
Featuring Aer-Tec throughout the shin liner, these pads promote airflow to keep players cool while skating. The inner liner combines Zotefoam and molded HD foam for a lightweight and comfortable fit.
The shin pad also features CCM's trademark JDP kneecap design, which is great at dispersing impact away from the knee joint and offering players top-notch protection.
Like the rest of the FT6 Pro protective line, players can definitely look forward to the lightweight foams and comfortable fit. And having Aer-Tec throughout the shin liner will definitely help while skating.
The CCM Jetspeed FT6 Pro line of protective hockey equipment is a game changer for players seeking lightweight, comfortable gear without sacrificing protection.
