Sharing much of the same technology as the more expensive RBZ models in the CCM skate line, the RBZ 90 skates offer excellent performance at a great value.
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. It is ultimately, however, a matter of personal preference.
Just like the RBZ and the RBZ 100 models, CCM uses what it calls Action Form™ Composite for the outer shell. The RBZ 90, however, uses a pro reinforced EPP Foam core, which contributes to the relative lightweight of this skate. 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 also 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. Heel lock from the deep heel counter is further enhanced through the use of high density memory foam. The RBZ 90 comes with the CCM Air System footbeds.
The tongue is made of Pro Injected Foam and Felt with Added Lace Bite Protection. It provides a nice balance of support and flex. The RBZ 90 has the ventilated fiberglass outsole which provides a good amount of rigidity under the boot. 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. The RBZ 90 comes with the SpeedBlade Stainless Steel runner.
You'll find exceptional value and performance that is designed to increase your foot speed in this RBZ 90 skate from CCM. Try them out today.
