Skate CCM Ribcor 86K Ice Hockey INT/SR
CCM’s latest iteration of the Ribcor skate line, the CCM Ribcor 86K Ice Hockey Skates! This new skate is designed to help maximize agility on the ice and give a good balance of comfort fit and performance.
Starting off with the quarter package, the Ribcor 86K Hockey Skates feature a composite quarter package using an injected synthetic composite. This durable boot shapes your foot better for a good fit around your foot. This boot will have a good structural stiffness and a performance stiffness of 130 which will generate a good skating performance.
New for this year on the Ribcor 86k Hockey Skates will be the ability to customize your tongue with the new XS tongue system. The replaceable felt tongue with 6mm felt and an asymmetrical flex point will better fit to your foot shape while offering good lace bite protection. And if you prefer a thinner or thicker tongue, the XS system allows for easy replacement of the tongue giving you a customizable fit out of the box.
Onto the interior, the Ribcor 86K Hockey Skates feature an HD microfiber liner. This high-performance moisture wicking material works to keep players as dry and comfortable as possible all game long. Going hand in hand with this liner is the ADPT memory foams. These symmetrical foams wrap snugly but comfortably around players feet, providing an anatomical type fit and comfort for all different foot shapes.
Moving to the lower half of the Ribcor 86K Hockey Skates is where you will find the SpeedBlade XS holder! On the back of each holder, players will find what is known as CCM’s BladeLock Technology. This is a positive-lock dial that tightly secures the blade to the holder and helps prevent the blade from loosening during gameplay. In turn, this design provides players with consistent and maximized energy transfer within each stride. For added comfort there is the CCM Ortholite footbed for increased support.
Partnered with the new SpeedBlade XS holder are the XS Stainless Steel runners. These runners provide a long-lasting edge for long-term performance.
With the new XS tongue system and upgrades in just about every aspect of the skate, the CCM Ribcor 86K Ice Hockey Skates are for the recreational-level skater that is looking to further enhance protection, comfort, and performance!
When you receive your skates, try them on and push your foot forward so that your toes (while flat) barely glance the toe cap. Bend your knee forward and look behind the heel of your foot down the skate. If you can fit a finger behind the heel easily, the skates are too big. A fingertip should be securely wedged between the heel of your foot and the back side of the skate.
While all players might have their own preference for fit, hockey skates should be 1 ½ sizes down from your shoe size. For most players this will be close to the proper fit. For example, if you are a U.S. Men’s shoe size 9, you would want to go with a skate size 7.5.
