CCM Jetspeed FT490 Senior Ice Hockey Skate
The CCM JetSpeed FT490 Skates boast exciting L1TEFRAME 360 one-piece boot technology that has taken the market by storm. Usually reserved for CCM's flagship skate models, this FT490 gives players the chance to experience the one-piece benefit at a lower price point. Unlike the traditional two-piece boots, L1TEFRAME 360 offers a better foot-to-ice connection, improved wrap around the foot and increased energy transfer in a lighter weight package.
Diving deeper into the boot, CCM used NHL-caliber RocketFrame Composite that is feather light, extremely responsive and very heatmoldable. Connected to the bottom of the FT490 is CCM's all-new SpeedBlade XS quick-releasing holder. The patented BladeLock mechanical dial system allows players to swap out steel in seconds, keeping them on the ice and off of the bench. Its unique attachment system maximizes energy transfer and ensures the steel doesn't accidentally release like some of the spring-lock counterparts.
Internally, the JetSpeed FT490 utilizes a dual-zone Total-Dri Liner that wicks away moisture and prevents slippage inside the boot. CCM reinforced key high-wear areas with Dura-Zone anti-abrasion pads to help improve durability. The top of the foot is well protected with a pro-inspired TriTech tongue that balances forward flexion with impact management. The thick felt has strategically placed foams along with a molded lace-bite guard for top-notch comfort and protection.
