The CCM RBZ 40 skate was designed for beginner players who need support and comfort in an entry level skate.
It has a generous anatomical fit profile with a standard heel. Unlike the highest end RBZ skates, the RBZ 40 has more of a traditional fit and follows the typical "1.5 sizes smaller than shoe size" rule of thumb. Skate fit, however, is ultimately a matter of personal preference.
The outer shell of the RBZ 40 uses tech mesh with a multi-layered core. These two elements in conjunction with a relatively stiff inner layer, creates a sandwich-like construction that offers a good amount of lateral support. Comfort foam can be found in the ankle area to slightly add heel lock.
The tongue is made of one-piece comfort felt for additional support. The RBZ 40 has an injected outsole which serves as the platform for mounting the E-Blade holder with Proformance™ Stainless Steel.
For the beginner skater that isn't looking to spend a lot on skates, these RBZ 40 skates from CCM are a great option.
