The 2021 CCM Jetspeed FT485 protective line is scheduled for release on May 21, but Pure Hockey has the inside scoop right now on the new gear. CCM’s mid-level Jetspeed hockey equipment offers many high-end features at an attractive price point – its incredible value will impress cost-conscious, performance-level players.
CCM Jetspeed FT485 Hockey Shoulder Pads
The new Jetspeed FT485 hockey shoulder pads feature a dual layer PE foam and vented front base that improves mobility without sacrificing durability. For bicep protection, you’ll find PE molded caps with the ability to adjust the length for custom comfort and excellent protection.
In the shoulder caps, the Jetspeed FT485 shoulder pads use molded PE plastic for lightweight, high-level protection. The sternum and spine include anatomical molded PE to provide must-have protection where it counts. Along with the PE foam used for torso protection, the FT485s also include a removable belly pad for more personalization based on your choice of fit and comfort.
CCM Jetspeed FT485 Hockey Elbow Pads
The new Jetspeed FT485 hockey shoulder pads feature an improved construction that follows the elbow’s natural movements. The hybrid three-piece design adds mobility, while the newly designed floating bicep pad helps you move more naturally.
These elbow pads are extremely lightweight and protective, with molded PE in the elbow cap and forearm with exposed EVA foam. These features help to disperse the force of impact away from the elbow.
The FT485s includes a three-strap system with nylon and elastic straps. This system is designed to secure the elbow pad in place and give you a fully customizable fit to give you optimal comfort and mobility.
CCM Jetspeed FT485 Hockey Shin Guards
The latest Jetspeed FT485 shin guards feature a new anatomical narrow-fit design that offers excellent protection without sacrificing mobility – the same design you’ll find in the higher-end FT4 and FT4 Pro pads.
The FT485 shin guard uses a two-strap system: an upper streamlined lock strap with comfort cushion and a length adjustable calf strap. The upper strap locks the top of the pad in place for a secure feel, while the bottom strap allows you to further customize the fit to your personal preferences.
The knee and shin caps use JDP material with an improved flex point, offering more freedom of movement and dispersing the impact force away from the knee joint for maximum comfort and protection. In the calf, the FT485s uses PE foam with plastic inserts, a lightweight material that is shaped to fit for more comfort.
CCM Jetspeed FT485 Hockey Pants
The new CCM Jetspeed FT485 hockey pants are designed with high-quality 400D nylon with textured side reinforcement for optimized durability and a close, tapered fit. These pants come with pro-level features such as lightweight foams, molded PE constructions in the hip and kidney, and a new injection-molded spine shield.
The Jetspeed FT485 pants are adjustable with a wide front opening and a wider belt for an easy custom fit. There is also a zipper on the inner thigh so you can adjust the pants as needed. Inside, the FT485s feature a polyester liner for great comfort and durability.
