CCM RibCor 50K Pump Senior Hockey Skates

CCM RibCor 50K Pump Senior Hockey Skates

Better late than never right? Ok, I admit that I am a little late on this review BUT this is still worth your while to read, especially if you are looking for high-end skates at a mid-range price.

The CCM RibCor 50K Skates follow the long line of CCM skates to feature the pump. While I did not find the pump that useful, I also don’t like a tight fit on my skates and I am also impatient. In other words, I tried to do the pump for the snug feel but it never seemed to do much for me. Also, there is a lace lock mechanism. I didn’t really like it but for those who want really tight skates, it probably will work for you. Now what about the rest of the skates?

I found that the 50K’s to be a rugged skate. While they are the heaviest of the CCM skates, they are the ones that probably feel the most ‘old school’. They still are heat moldable but they still resemble a more traditional hockey skate. They just feel solid. The Achilles guard is solid, the boot is solid and they just feel solid. They do feature a combination of RibCor Elite construction, EPP foam and a carbon outsole. All of this means that they feel stiff yet agile out on the ice. But it also features a great felt tongue. Lace bite will never be a problem with these skates.

So should YOU buy the skates? I think that if you are looking for a reasonably priced skate that features high-end construction, then yes you should definitely consider purchasing these skates. My feeling is that if you consider yourself a rugged, stay at home, a defender that blocks shots, then these are your skates. While these are not the lightest skates on the market, by no means are they lead weights on your feet either.

The CCM RibCor 50K Pump Senior Hockey Skates can be found for $399.99 right now if you look around and it is a pretty good deal. You are getting a top of the line skates for a mid-level priced skate. You should consider these skates, especially if you are looking for a new pair and are coming from a previous generation of the skate (CCM or Reebok).

Hockey Gear Review recommends the CCM RibCor 50K Pump Senior Hockey Skates for hockey players of all abilities.
