looks like they contact you after you submit the order on the website so I guess they are trying to keep pricing somewhat secretive?

I tried ordering a blocker and it wanted my order number and which league I am in. No prices :(

Prices now on the L87 customiser:

- Pads: $2200 CDN

- Glove: $650 CDN

- Blocker: $540 CDN

I think you can make the graphics look nice if you combine a bunch of the color zones and keep it more simple - but I like white based pads anyway. My preference (below) makes it basically the EF3 graphic.

There seem to be a couple bugs in the customizer where the dropdown selections for Option X seem to be pulling from the list for Option Y instead. E.g. the Index Protection and Hand Fit ones should be switched.

One thing I like a lot is that they took a nod from the Bauer customizer and rendered the gear as a 3D rotatable object (though Bauer's is a bit more polished). On the downside, I couldn't find a way to view the whole set together (pads + blocker + glove all in one picture) to see how it looks as a whole. Additionally, it would be nice to have information on what some of the custom options mean:

For someone not familiar with the CCM terminology, the only thing they'd know from this is that the latter two are probably bindingless, but no indication as to how they differ from one another. You can also order the pads with different cores, but nothing to tell you what differentiates the, for example, soft vs. stiff versions of the same single internal/single external break pads.

Also somewhat disappointed that you can't mix and match custom options between the lines - given that each set they make will be bespoke, it doesn't make sense to me that one can't get, for example, a deep, soft boot break (EF4 and 12.1) on the 4.1 pads.

So far we've seen their versions of the Retroflex, PII, and EF4 pads, all of which seem right in line with what you'd expect from CCM's retail custom offerings, just built in Canada. The posted prices (pads - $2200 CAD/$1700 USD, blocker - $540 CAD/$415 USD, glove - $650 CAD/$500 USD) are higher than what you'd pay from the smaller Canadian manufacturers like Passau, Kenesky, JRZ, etc., but name recognition + having built all of CCM's pro gear might be able to command that higher price point. I am interested to see what innovations they will bring to their 20.1 line next week.

I gotta say the gear looks sharp and the 12.1 catcher especially looks awesome to me.

The blockers however look swollen or fat or puffy or unflat....something looks off,  especially the12.1 along the perimeter. 

Looks like you can push it in and it'd make a *squish noise.

Great graphic set up. I had envisioned that when I saw the customizer and now I don’t have to do it 😂😂😂

From what I can see of the pictures online of the gloves, I can't seem to see any D3O in the fingers. I'm assuming that's proprietary to CCM then?

Could this mean that the overall protection of the Lefevre gloves going back to pre D3O integration?

D3O is exclusive to CCM. It’s in all their product and extends past goalie. 
 

They could use a generic viscoelastic gel foam for similar sorta effect. 
 

From memory, this glove will have have A tweaked catching surface or tweak vs CCM line of 580, 590, or 600

Regarding Pricing:

Attached are screen captures of the 16 highest priced blockers, gloves and leg pads on Goalie Monkey. I am not defending any manufacturer or retailer, nor am I making a comment about where in the galaxy any of these pieces are manufactured, but I see nothing surprising about Lefevre's pricing in the context of CCM, Bauer, Vaughn or Brian's:
