Goalie Equipment Guru Brian Heaton Focuses On Control To Create The CCM HEATON 10 Goalie Equipment Line
Montreal, Quebec, July 2, 2001 ... The CCM brand of The Hockey Company - a world leader in hockey equipment and related apparel - has unveiled the CCM HEATON 10 line of goalie equipment for Fall 2001. The latest goalie equipment line created by goalie equipment guru Brian Heaton, the CCM HEATON 10 line was also co-developed by perennial NHL All-Star Goalie Martin Brodeur and will be worn in competition by Brodeur next season.
In the CCM HEATON 10 line, Brian Heaton and Martin Brodeur have developed goalie equipment that allows all goalies to "Control Their Game." By emphasizing a controlled fit using CCM's exclusive Form Intensive Technology (F-I-T-) System™, the goalie pads, blocker and catch glove fit comfortably and securely to give netminders the confidence to go down or slide as needed without the fear of their pads shifting.
Handmade in Canada, The CCM HEATON 10 line has been crafted with innovative design features that will benefit all goalies regardless of style of play. The GP 10 Pro goalie pads features a deep anatomical knee and leg channel to provide a secure, controlled fit when blocking all angles. The GM 10 Pro catch glove has been designed with a molded palm construction and is steam-fitted, so the glove feels broken in and is ready to play right out of the store. The new wrist lock feature on the GB 10 Pro blocker stabilizes the wrist and eliminates side-to-side rotation.
To go along with these features and benefits, the CCM HEATON 10 line has been designed with the newest high tech materials. Among the most notable materials, the GP 10 Pro goalie pads and GM 10 Pro catch glove have been designed with H2O water-phobic material in the knee/leg cradle and palm, respectively, to reduce moisture absorption and control weight during play. The use of Tempur-pedic memory foam in the GP 10 Pro goalie pads absorbs the speed of the puck at impact and controls the rebound.
The CCM HEATON 10 Goalie Pads, Catcher and Blocker are available in a wide variety of sizes, including custom sizes, and in Full right. They are all available in Red/Black/White, Blue/Black/White, Black/White and custom colors. The CCM HEATON 10 line of goalie equipment will be available at hockey specialty shops and sporting goods stores beginning in October 2001.
