The CCM Gel Pad Lace Bite Protector is a thin, comfortable and ergonomic gel pad helping to protect from lace bite injuries. Lace bite injuries are common amongst hockey players. The sharp and painful sensation that runs through your foot can be treated with the gel pad. More common in newer and more stiff skates, lace bites are a hockey player's worst nightmare. Wrapped in a soft, polyester sleeve, the PU gel pad will do its job and fight off those progressive lace bites.
