New for 2017 is the Extreme Flex E3.5 Junior Blocker from CCM. Starting with the front face, CCM designed the blocker bindingless, giving it more blocking surface with increased durability. There is a center palm position for great balance, as well as an emboss synthetic palm providing great hand grip on the stick. The palm guard itself is a reinforced hand, offering durability for the goalie. The palm gusset is made of ventilated mesh, increasing breathability and comfort during play.
Moving on to the lock thumb protector, it features a molded thumb offering greater protection than the Extreme Flex II 760 predecessor. The finger protectors feature a low-density foam wrap for optimized protection, while the blocking board is made of laminated dual-density foam with PE board, helping to maximum rebound control. Lastly, the Extreme Flex E3.5 features an adjustable fit cuff, which will help the goalie during stick handling and other puck movement.
