The U+ 09 skate utilizes U foam which was only found in the Pro model prior to 2009. With U Foam technology, you get a truly customized boot once it has been heated and formed to your foot. The U+ skate starts with the players foot and when heated takes the foot's unique shape. The competition uses a preset shape, and forces the players foot into that shape. The construction and strength of the U Foam allows the skate to form to the ankle without any limitations. U Foam is also used in the heel to allow the heel to lock into place once the boot is heated. The Forefoot also incorporates the U Foam to provide a close to the foot fit to provide maximum energy transfer. Once set, U Foam is stronger than any other core construction CCM has ever used providing maximum energy transfer and push off. If your looking for an edge in the game, look no further than the U+ 09.
Note: This skate comes with Proformance Light Runners, not the Rocket runners that are pictured.
