Comments: After about a ten year hiatus after playing Jrs, I started skating again in a mens league 2-3
times a week. Intially I was wearing a mid-level Easton skate that were the worst. Cheap
steel, flimsy boot, bottomed out like crazy..
After about a year I decided to spend the $ on the type of higher end skates I was used to.
The last high end skate I owned before these were the CCM 1052's
I ended up going with the RibCor 28K.. They are very cool looking first of all. I actually
baked them at home in my kitchen oven and skated on them the next night.. Right off the
bat I could tell they were great skates.. Incredibly light, responsive as hell ,and I cut get
wayyy over on the boot with out bottoming out.. The boot is very supportive and the pump
helps customize the fit (ive have ankle surgery and its always been an issue with boots)
I also notice a boost in my speed, and a little spring to my start from a dead stop.. I think
the 4mm lift/angle is the main reason for that.
The dual lace zones is a plus and eliminates lace-bite. There was literally no break-in time
(for me ) on these skates.
The only issue with these skates is that there are two hinged metal eye-lets about three
holes down on the boot (this hinge allows for the dual zone lacing) The hinge tends to
stick a little resulting in a few extra seconds in lacing and unlacing (you kind of have to tug
the lace to unstick the hinge)
Other than that I couldn't be happier with the RibCor line
