CCM Axis A1.9 Senior Goalie Leg Pads. Building off their successful flat faced design, the Axis A1.9 has integral new pieces of technology that provide the best seal and movement for today’s goaltender.
Starting with the internal core of the pad, the Axis A1.9 Senior has a tremendous weight reduction all thanks to the LiteXCore Technology. On top of this core is specific HD and LD foams which gives the goaltender one of the most active rebounds to date.
This is due to CCM utilizing a fully elastic and nylon style setup to keep the pad connected on the leg while reducing weight. You will find a 2” wide elastic strap which comes out of the knee block and can attach directly across the knee or angled down to the calf. The attachment on the outside of the knee is still removable via nylon straps and Velcro.
Building off the same technology put into previous models, the top calf strap is still noted as the most important and integral to a pads successful rotation which CCM has coined as the Quick Motion Strapping System. This top elastic calf strap runs internally along the goaltender’s calf and provides a snug support which can all be adjusted by a Velcro closure.
Following the same build pattern as the Quick Motion top calf strap, there is a large nylon strap which closes off the entire leg channel. This strap can be adjusted as tight or as loose as desired, but it is recommended to keep it tighter as it will help pull the calf of the pad tight to the inside of the leg.
CCM Axis A1.9 Senior is a 3D molded calf wedge that provides key support down in the butterfly. With the addition of this piece removing negative space, it provides more support to the goaltender’s leg while simultaneously keeping the pad sealed to the ice.
Finishing off the back of the pad, you will notice several little details which enhance the overall design of the Axis A1.9 Senior pads. On the boot channel, it is slightly flattened out, so the pad sits on top of the goaltender’s foot. Next, the inner and outer calf flaps do not extend past the goaltender’s foot, so the skate is able to grip the ice unprohibited. Lastly, the outer gusset is now bindingless and made of SpeedSkin which provides better durability and a reduced weight.
Compared to the Axis A1.9 Senior goal pads, the Axis Pro will feature higher quality construction with higher grade materials and overall better durability.
