The RBZ skate series addresses the need for speed, and was designed to maximize explosiveness and reaction speed. The RBZ Youth skate has a generous anatomical fit profile with a standard heel and a deep heel contour to give you a nice heel lock. The typical "1.5 sizes smaller than shoe size" rule of thumb is recommended for sizing, but personal preference trumps the rules of course.
For the quarter of the skate, CCM uses what it calls Action Form™ Composite for the outer shell + Speedcore Technology in the middle. Basically, with the relatively stiff inner layer, it creates a sandwich-like construction that is very receptive to heat molding and provides an excellent combination of light weight and stiffness. The improved boot cut has been brought in a little and provides a deeper flexion zone and reduced boot fatigue. Heel lock from the deep heel contour is further enhanced through the use of high density poron memory foam as ankle padding. The fact that these react so well to heat molding just adds to the already great amount of customization that this skate offers, which of course is going to further reduce break in time.
The tongue is made of felt with added lace bite protection and is also great for protecting against hard impacts on the top of the skate. The RBZ features a vented thermo plastic rubber outsole; this is where you'll find the E-Blade holder with Proformance Stainless steel.
With so many technological advancements that all point to increasing your foot speed, there is a reason that CCM refers to the RBZ skates as Speed to the Extreme. Get Fast, with this RBZ Youth skate!
