CCM Jetspeed FT480 Senior Ice Hockey Skate
The CCM JetSpeed FT480 Black Skates were built for players looking for elite-level performance and comfort without the big price tag.
CCM used their NHL-caliber 3D-lasted RocketFrame Composite boot that offers explosive power through each stride. This year, the FT480 looks to stand out from the competition with its composite outsole, which is lighter and more responsive than the typical TPU.
The other truly significant upgrade on this FT480 skate is the brand new quick-releasing SpeedBlade XS Holder. The patented BladeLock system mechanically attaches the runners to the holder in order to maximize energy transfer, to increase longevity and to prevent the steel from accidentally releasing like some of the "spring-lock" holders.
Inside the JetSpeed FT480 is CCM's pro-inspired Total-Dri Liner. This dual-material construction aims to manage moisture while keeping feet locked into place. Near the Smooth Collar pads, the FT480 boasts strategically-placed Dura-Zone anti-abrasion pads that prevent premature wear-and-tear inside the boot. On top of the foot, CCM used a 7mm felt tongue that is reinforced with internal foams and external HD foams in order to provide top-notch protection without compromising forward flexion.
