The Reebok RIBCOR skate series was designed to give the player Mind Blowing Agility with the type of control that allows you to turn on a dime. In addition to that, it lives up to the reputation that Reebok skates have earned as being among the best for out of the box fit. They are easy to break in, offer good flexibility and of course allow for a unique type of customized fit through the use of its Pump® technology. For those of you that aren’t familiar with that technology, the Pump® allows you to control the amount of air that you circulate into the air bladders around the ankles, thus enhancing heel lock and giving you the option to adjust for fit in a matter of seconds between shifts. The RIBCOR 24K has a tapered fit in the ankle and is slightly narrower in the heel and the forefoot in comparison to the Tacks and RBZ lines from CCM.
Reebok uses synthetic light weight structure in the quarter for enhanced forward flexion. Featured in the core are non-woven reinforcement fibers for added support. The other two elements of the agility profile that contribute to forward and backward flexibility are the boot cut and the 13° forward lean (RBZ is 10°, while current Tacks are 16°). Heel lock is achieved from a combination of a tapered fit in the ankle, the use of internal ankle foams, and the Pump®.
The tongue is made of 7mm high density felt with foam inserts to enhance the fit and comfort. The 24K features a low profile injected outsole which enhances energy transfer. This is where you will find the SpeedBlade Pro holder which provides an additional 4.0 mm of height to increase the angle of attack. Within the SpeedBlade Pro holder is CCM’s stainless steel runner made to provide a long lasting edge for long term performance.
If you’re looking for a comfortable skate with good value, Reebok’s 24K skate might be for you.
