Review of CCM Ribcor 100K Pro Ice Hockey Skates
CCM Ribcor 100K Pro Skates were created with the player looking to do it all in mind, maximizing agility and range of motion. The extremely flexible innovations in the Ribcor 100K PRO ice skates will maximize your agility and grant you unrivaled mobility.
Ribcor 100K was created to maximize energy transfer, improve performance, and enable maximum forward flexion while extending your range of motion. There was much anticipation for the Ribcor 100K. We were eager to put a few of the technological advancements to the test on the ice.
For serious hockey players, CCM designed the Ribcor 100k skate. A hefty price tag is also attached to it. The CCM Ribcor 100k skate is not an entry-level model.
Before I stray from the subject, let’s talk about some of the incredible features of the CCM 100k skates.

What are the CCM Ribcor 100K Pro made of? Are they durable?
Players’ forward flexion can be increased with the new Flexmotion tongue. The tongues’ ribbed pattern both makes it possible to take a long skating stride and offers good lace biting protection.
Designed with the best steel available and carbon-coated technology for exceptional edge toughness and glide. You can dig in the ice with confidence and control because to the higher blade.
Still belonging to the CCM family but with a softer stiffness level is the Ribcor boot. This promotes quick movements and increases your range of motion, which will help you be as agile as possible on the ice.
The dazzling silver-lined design is layered over a black finish in the new CCM Ribcor 100K Pro graphic. CCM adds a gorgeous finishing touch to the boot with their trademark Ribcor green embellishments along the tendon guard and heel base.
The tongue is intended to aid ankle mobility when you lean forward. I love this because I prefer to tie my laces tighter. Additionally, it lessens “lace bite,” which I’m sure we’ve all encountered at some point.
Are CCM Ribcor 100K Pro Comfortable? And how do they fit?
Personally, I think buying skates that are snug on your feet is a good idea. If you’ve ever played hockey on painful skates, you know it’s not enjoyable.
The boot is made of RFM composite and is one piece. A premium material that is lightweight and actually has variable stiffness indices. It is a variable flex, which has never been observed before.
A moisture-wicking layer called TotalDri helps keep your feet dry and comfy by wicking away perspiration.
With this liner, the ADPT memory foam works well. These symmetrical foams fit and comfort varied foot shapes anatomically and wrap the player’s feet firmly but pleasantly.
This skate is more nimble than earlier models on purpose from CCM. This means that you can move and modify more quickly than ever with these skates. The new boot technology has made it simpler to stop, cut, turn, etc.
STEP Blacksteel (+4 mm) is steel and works with the new SpeedBlade XS holder. These are composed of the best steel available and have been carbon coated for enhanced edge toughness and incredible slide.
Players can dig farther during their turns thanks to this elevation gain, which raises peak speed.
The Comfort Pad is extra padding that is located close to the top of the boot to help with comfort. It also aids in providing ankle support, which I greatly value. Memory foam cushioning in the ankle area only enhances the benefits.
The footbed is probably the most crucial piece of the skates’ side cushioning, even if all of it is necessary. Your foot will rest in it the entire time, therefore, if it’s bad, your feet will suffer greatly.
This is why CCM included its OrthoLite molded footbed in these skates. To get the most out of your skates, they are made to fit your feet’s shape.
The SpeedBlade XS holder is located in the lower section of the Ribcor 100K Pro. Players can locate what is known as CCM’s BladeLock technology at the back of each holder.
This locking knob secures the blade to the holder and helps keep it from slipping off during play. The result of this design is that each insert offers players a consistent and maximized energy transmission.
Is there a difference between the Senior, Intermediate, Junior and Youth versions of CCM Ribcor 100K Pro Skates?
Step forward into your skates so that your flat toes barely touch the toe cap when you initially put them on. Bend your knee forward and look behind the heel of your foot as it descends the skate.
If your finger fits easily behind the heel, the skates are too big. Put a strong push with the tip of your finger between the back of the skate and the heel of your foot.
Each player may have a preferred fit, but generally speaking, hockey skates need to be one and a half sizes smaller than your shoe size. For most players, this will be a close game. If your U.S. men’s shoe size is 9, for example, you should select a skate size 7.5.
SENIOR Hockey Skates
Senior hockey skates are sized to fit adults and full grown teenagers with a Men’s US shoe size of 8 or greater.
Intermediate Hockey Skates
Intermediate hockey skates are sized to fit kids in the range of approximately 10 to 13 years old with a US shoe size of 5 to 7.
Our Verdict/Overall Thoughts on CCM Ribcor 100K Pro Skates
The price tag ($999.99) is not what I consider “cheap.” However, as a hockey player, you are aware of the high cost of equipment in general.
Nevertheless, I have always adhered to the principle that you get what you pay for. You will receive top-tier equipment if you spend a lot of money on it.
I’ll be honest with you; aside from the price, there isn’t much to complain about with these skates. They have made significant progress since their previous skate regarding how they appear, feel, and perform.
