CCM Premier 2

Recommended Posts

I've recently had some strapping issues with my CCM Premier 2.9s. I've had them for about 4 months now and the knee strap and the outer calf strap come undone routinely and find myself having to fix the strap 2-3 times every practice and game. Does anyone know of any ways to strengthen the velcro or if there's a specific way to strap them that will stop this from happening?

Is it just the velcro is worn?  This is a common issue on Senior level pads in my experience.  It happens on all pads eventually, but much faster on a senior level pad because of the lower quality materials typically used.  On pro level pads, the elastic usually stretches out before the velcro wears out.

4 months is a stupid short time for the velcro to wear out.

I had my Senior V4's velcro still hold strong years down the line, as well as my SNR R/GT's velcro is still in great condition despite owning them for almost 2 years.

I was thinking the same thing, but at the same time I have about 6 practices a week and 1-2 games.

Did you contact the retailer or CCM customer service?

I had a set of the SLR Pro's and the velcro was just awful, lasted less than 6 months.  Not surprisingly GM sold replacement kits that insert right into the calf wrap.  My PVE Pro Carbons are 1 yr old and all straps are good as new, same strapping setup as the SLR, but clearly higher quality. 

I was actually going to put a Warrior disclaimer in my original response.  In my opinion Warrior doesn't make Sr. level gear, its just Pro A and Pro B.

I think many people would challenge this.

He's not totally wrong. Warrior does make an excellent senior product that is very similar to the pro line.

Just my opinion having owned their pro and Sr gear since the release of the G3 and having owned Sr level gear from Vaughn and CCM recently as well. 

There is a distinct difference between most brands Sr and pro level gear...warrior is a bit harder to distinguish.  Specifically durability, performance and protection, which is all I really care about.

If I could only afford a set of Sr. pads and wanted the most bang for my buck, based on my experience, I wouldn't think twice about going with Warrior.
