The CCM QuickLite Hockey Elbow Pads are the flagship CCM QLT elbow pads and provide unbelievably lightweight, elite-level protection. The QuickLite elbows have a 3-piece design with floating bicep and forearm guards to allow the arm to move freely and flex without the pad getting in the way. This is also the only elbow pad in the lineup to use the extremely lightweight and protective Zotefoam®.
Using Zotefoam®, the elbow pads are able to significantly cut down weight without sacrificing protection. The bicep guard uses the Zotefoam®, in combination with a molded HD foam to wrap around the upper arm and offer great protection. Along the ouside of the arm, CCM also uses their Ventshield, which is an engineered sturdy plastic piece that's vented to allow air to flow through to the pad while protecting that area. In the forearm, the QLT uses the same Zotefoam® and molded HD protection with extra vents on the underside of the arm. The elbow cap itself uses the time-tested JDP design used in each generation from the Reebok KFS to the CCM RBZ elbow lines. This construction directs the energy from impacts away from the sensitive elbow joint and dissipates the energy in the surrounding padding.
Inside the pad, CCM uses Dry Foam technology to reduce the weight of the pad by using closed-cell foams that absorb less sweat. To ensure a locked-in fit, the QLT has an elbow donut to prevent any slippage and to keep the protection in place.
