What is the CCM Jetspeed FT4 Pro Skates made of? Are they durable?
With One-Piece Boot Speed Technology from CCM, energy transfer is improved while weight is decreased. In order to improve fit and maximize the amount of energy transferred from the body via the skate and onto the ice, the composite one-piece construction decreases empty space within the boot.
The middle stiffness level offered among the CCM skate models is the FT4 Pro boot, which is made to maximize quickness and agility. The FT4 Pro’s stiffness performance index reads 195, which is between the 180 of the Ribcor index and the 215 of the Tacks index.
Multi-density memory foam comfort pads have been added to the internal padding to improve comfort and ensure a tight fit. The smooth contour pro pad that is injected into the top of the boot alleviates pressure at a high point.
An established standard eyelet lacing mechanism is used to extend the Jetspeed series. Additionally strengthened for further durability are the top eyelets.
The TotalDri Pro+ liner is a feature of the FT4 Pro skate. Like any effective moisture-wicking liner, its meant to keep your feet dry and the skates light while you are on ice.
The TotalDri Pro+ liner also has worn patches in the typical high-wear areas. As a result, the skate’s liner should be more durable overall and continue to provide comfort over time.
The asymmetrical toe cap is new for this year. The new toe cap maintains the same level of protection while reducing the amount of negative space in the boot, increasing the overall fit and once more emphasizing energy transfer.
The Molded CCM Ortholite Ultralite footbed in the FT4 Pros is an ultra-lightweight insole to provide maximum comfort and support for your arches.
CCM knows every player’s feet are unique, now with their new fit system, you can find your fit in any CCM Skate model. Choose from Tapered, Regular, or Wide and get the fit that will best help you to achieve top performance.
The Wide Fit will be most similar to the previous Ribcor skates but with a little more width in the toe box. While the Regular Fit will be most similar to the Tacks series. The Tapered Fit will be slightly narrower than the previous Jetspeed fit.
The main change I noticed was how much tighter the heels were in every fit option. The new fit appears to be successful.
How do CCM Jetspeed FT4 Pro Skates Perform?
With a multi-layer metatarsal guard and 7mm white felt to increase ankle and foot wrap and protect against lace bite, the tongue of the CCM FT4 Pro is identical to previous iterations of the Jetspeed tongue.
The Pro tongue with 10mm black felt, and the Lightweight 4mm tongue are the replacement choices, or bespoke options, that are readily accessible.
Step BlackSteel’s additional 4mm height also results in a larger attack angle and turning radius. The FT4 Pro skates come with the CCM XS holder. This provides the trustworthy rapid-release mechanism that elite players are now using worldwide.
Is there a difference between the Senior, Intermediate, Junior, and Youth versions of CCM Jetspeed FT4 Pro Skates?
When you first put on your skates, push your foot forward until your flat toes just make contact with the toe cap. You can see behind the heel of your foot as it descends the skate by bending your knee forward.
The skates are too big if you can easily insert a finger behind the heel. Place the tip of your finger firmly between the heel of your foot and the back of the skate.
Each player may have a particular fit, but generally speaking, hockey skates should be one and a half sizes smaller than your shoe size. Most players believe this will be a close game. For instance, you should choose a skate size 7.5 if your U.S. men’s shoe size is 9.

Intermediate Hockey Skates
