CCM U+ Crazy Light



I just got a job at this store in Toronto (Mississauga to be exact) called Pro Hockey Life, check it out if you're ever in Canada, there's 23 stores http://prohockeylife.com/

And some representatives from Reebok and CCM came in and were showing us this video and a bunch of their new products and stuff. These shoulder pads specifically are literally crazy light. There was a video with some CCM U+ shoulder pads that weighed, 1250 g and when soaked in water 2000 g. The crazy light ones were 750 g and 970 g when soaked in water and I thought that was nuts! The neat thing is that they don't sacrifice any protection either compared to other shoulder pads. They're made with this special mater called UFoam so its really cool and I was pretty blown away by this new line of protection gear from CCM. I just thought it was neat to see Joe Thornton and Brent Burns talking about them and trying them on, so hopefully our guys actually wear these because we'd be a lot lighter than many teams, ha ha.

Also, IIRC Thornton has been using the same shoulder pads since Juniors or something ridiculous.

I get it. This would probably be better suited for the Adult Hockey League thread, or in "The Rink".

Personally, I'm interested. I hate heavy pads. I rocked the Sherwoods for years but after a recent injury (not related to hockey), I need to be more protected. Considering the Sherwoods are like wearing a performance fleece vest, I needed something more. So I rock grafs now. Love em.

But I'll check these out once my grafs need replacing.

When I read cool shoulder pads I thought about comics in the 90s but I was disappointed by ordinary pads...
