The CCM RibCor 80K Skate is designed for players that want a skate that will help them stand out from the pack. The RibCor 80K takes a totally different approach to responsiveness and power by offering the most optimized stride in all of hockey.
They accomplished this with the 3D-lasted composite boot paired with FlexFrame Technology. By using strategic areas of stiffness, the 80K gives players more straightaway power with a completely uninhibited range of motion through the stride. East-to-west agility is powered by the excellent lateral stability from the boot as well as composite outsole too.
Right out of the box, the CCM RibCor 80K Skate fits and feels like its already been broken in. This was made possible through the anatomical shape of the boot and more importantly, the new ADPT Ankle Pads. These heavenly memory foam pads fit like a dream which is no surprise as to why they are the most commonly requested in the NHL.
CCM used their new quick-releasing SpeedBlade XS Holder as well as the SpeedBlade XS1 Black Runner. Exclusively found on this 80K, the XS1 Black Runners are 12% taller than the standard steel for a better sharpening life, more custom profile options and a better turning radius too. Meanwhile, the black oxide coating increases edge retention and prevents corrosion.
Since the new runners are heavier, CCM needed to remove weight without compromising durability or style. The RibCor 80K uses fewer non-performance aesthetic pieces, most notably around the eyelets as well as a new lightweight TotalDri Pro+ Liner. The wear-resistance and moisture-management are still as great as ever, but the new liner plays a big role in keeping the skate lightweight all game long.
