The CCM Ribcor 44K was designed to give the player Mind Blowing Agility with the type of control that allows you to turn on a dime. They are easy to break in, offer good flexibility and of course allow for a unique type of customized fit through the use of its next generation pump, Advanced Pump technology.
For those of you that aren't familiar with that technology, the Advanced Pump allows you to control the amount of air that you circulate into the air bladders around the ankles, thus enhancing heel lock by eliminating negative space and giving you the option to adjust for fit in a matter of seconds between shifts. It is more efficient than its predecessor as it fills quicker and holds more air. The Ribcor 44K has a tapered fit in the ankle and is slightly narrower in the heel and the forefoot. You'll also find the Lace Lock feature on this skate, which allows for variability within two separate lacing zones - lower and upper.
CCM uses its Ribcor Flex construction in the quarter. This HD foam core reacts very well to heat molding, and will help reduce break in time. The two elements of the agility profile that contribute to forward and backward flexibility are the boot cut and the 13° forward lean. Heel lock is achieved from a combination of a tapered fit in the ankle, the use of internal ankle foams, the Lace Lock feature and the Advanced Pump.
The tongue is made of pro felt with an EVA foam core and has an external molded lace bite protector. The Ribcor 44K has the vented low profile injected outsole which serves as the platform for mounting the SpeedBlade + 4.0 holder, which is aptly named because of its additional 4.0mm height which provides a significantly deeper angle of attack for tighter turns. Within the SpeedBlade holder is the SpeedBlade Stainless steel runner.
