new for 2018, CCM has overhauled their ExtremeFlex Shield line and brought out the CCM ExtremeFlex Shield II Pro Senior Goalie Chest Protector. Building off of the already successful design, the ExtremeFlex Shield II Pro has new shapes and technology sure to turn heads.
Shield II Pro pants are built off of the successful Premier pant, but feature a new waist to provide a tighter fit. Starting at the top, the spine of the pant is made of molded HD foams which come up a bit higher on the back, which is meant to butt up right against the backplate of the chest protector.
The waist features segmented HD and LD foams with strategic cuts to angle up the waist and sit tighter against the body. Most goalies who do not tuck their chest protector will appreciate this new design. Right at the waist, the Shield II Pro pant will feature a 1 inch zipper extension. When the zipper is undone, the entire length of the pant will extend 1 full inch to provide extra length if desired.
At the hip, there is a similar design to the Premier pant which features 3 segmented pieces with added D30 protection to provide against shots sneaking in to the hip. Moving down through the groin and hip, there will be molded HD foams with lightweight EPE foams to provide the butterfly goaltender great protection.
Finally, the Shield II Pro pants come with an internal belt for goalies that have a thinner waist and want a very tight fit to their body. While the top portion of the pant is already tapered, goalies can still crank the belt tight to their body and still let the hip padding sit a little wider off of their body.
