New for the AXIS 2 is the new 591 glove that’s based on the 590 with some tech improvements for even better mobility and light weight design. We also see improvements to an already well balanced blocker board with no giving you larger rebounds, it also matches the glove an even lighter design.
The biggest change we see is on the 591 the removal of the traditional wrist strap across and a new a CROSSFORM strap that gives a greater range of motion while still being connected to the glove. Inside is a new HEAT FORM finger system that with your body heat keeps your fingers in place giving a more natural hand position for better control. CCM has also used LITECORE design to save up to 15% from the previous AXIS glove so you can react quicker and more efficiently.
The CCM blocker has always been one of the preferred blockers with its well balanced comfortable design. They’ve gone ahead and kept the same great feel but give you an even lighter board and greater rebounds from the face, for some added comfort when directing those shots to the corner we have an added padded wrist strap that reduces the feeling of the nylon so you can really that blocker directed where you want the puck to go. The new DURAPALM has that same great feel of AX SUEDE but with the odor fighting properties of Polygiene with odor crunch.
