For the first time on the Ribcor line, the RibCor 100K Pro will have CCM’s new flex boot technology in one piece. With this boot, players get more direct energy transfer and a closer fit for faster cuts. This one-piece boot has great forward flexibility and lateral stability, allowing players to get as much power and efficiency as possible. NHL-caliber RFM composite material gives the boot a variable stiffness profile of 175-185 which provides an excellent fit in all situations. New for this year on the Ribcor 100k Pro will be the opportunity to customize your tongue with the new XS tongue system. The replaceable flexmotion blade with several layers of 7 mm felt and an asymmetrical flex point fits your foot better. And if you prefer a thinner or thicker tongue, the XS system allows easy tongue change, which gives you a customizable fit out of the box. On the inside, the Ribcor 100K Pro has a TotalDri comfort lining. This high-performance moisture-wicking material works to keep players as dry and comfortable as possible throughout the game. This liner goes hand in hand with the ADPT memory foam. These symmetrical foams wrap tightly but comfortably around the player’s feet and provide an anatomical fit and comfort for all different foot shapes. The lower half of the Ribcor 100K Pro is where you will find the SpeedBlade XS holder! At the back of each holder, players find what is known as CCM’s BladeLock technology. This is a locking knob that locks the blade to the holder and helps prevent the blade from coming loose during play. In turn, this design provides players with consistent and maximized energy transfer within each insert. For extra comfort, cast CCM Ortholite Ultralite is available for increased support. In collaboration with the new SpeedBlade XS holder, STEP Blacksteel (+4 mm) is steel! These are made of the highest quality steel with carbon coated technology for superior edge hardness and provide a phenomenal slip. This elevation gain allows players to dig deeper in their turns, increasing top speed.
