The RBZ 100 skates from CCM share a lot of the same technology as the flagship RBZ model at a fraction of the price. As a series, the RBZ skate line addresses the need for speed, and was designed to maximize explosiveness and reaction speed. It has a generous anatomical fit profile with a standard heel and a deep heel contour to give you a nice heel lock. Since it does have such a deep heel contour, instead of the typical "1.5 sizes smaller than shoe size" rule of thumb, CCM recommends 2 sizes smaller than shoe size as a starting point when getting fitted for these skates. Of course, it is a matter of personal preference though.
Just like the RBZ, CCM uses what it calls Action Form™ Composite for the outer shell + Speedcore Technology in the middle for the quarter of this RBZ 100 model. When you also consider the relatively stiff inner layer, it creates a sandwich-like construction that offers a great amount of lateral support. Since this configuration is very receptive to heat molding, break in time will be reduced. The improved boot cut has been brought in a little to provide a deeper flexion zone and reduced boot fatigue. The addition of the smooth contour high edge reduces high ankle abrasion. Heel lock from the deep heel counter is further enhanced through the use of high density memory foam. The RBZ 100 comes with the CCM Air System footbeds.
The tongue is made of Pro Injected Foam and Felt with Added Lace Bite Protection. It is very supportive, yet gives you a good amount of forward flex. The RBZ 100 has the ventilated carbon composite outsole which provides excellent rigidity under the boot. It is mainly the outsole that makes the RBZ 100 slightly heavier than the RBZ. Attached to the outsole is where you'll find the SpeedBlade + 4.0 holder. It offers an additional 4.0mm height which provides a significantly deeper angle of attack for tighter turns. SpeedRibs near the top of the holder help to increase torsional rigidity. Finally, the RBZ 100 comes with the SpeedBlade Stainless Steel runner.
