For 2018, CCM builds off their successful Tacks line of skates and offers key upgrades to the CCM Tacks 9090 Senior Ice Hockey Skate
On the outside, the CCM Tacks 9090 Senior Ice Hockey Skate is composed of a 3D lasted quarter package and CCM’s Rocketframe composite material. This anatomical fit wraps around the foot for better fit and control within the skate. Moving to the inside of the boot, the core will be constructed with CCM’s Speedcore 3 stiffness. This heat moldable core is super lightweight and stiff which allows skaters to generate more power from their stride.
Internally, CCM is featuring symmetrical multi density memory foam to provide a more detailed custom style fit inside the Super Tacks. On top of the foams, Tacks 9090 skates come with the TotalDri liner that will help wick away moisture to keep the foot locked and dry throughout the game. CCM also added abrasion spots in the high wear areas to help with the internal durability of the skates.
Moving from the boot the Tacks 9090 will have an extra stiff carbon composite outsole, which will provide the most efficient energy transfer from the foot to the skate. Finishing off the skates will be the SpeedBlade 4.0 holder which offers pro level durability and increased attack angle for players to get lower on their edges. CCM’s top level Speedblade Black steel will come standard on the AS1 which features a harder oxide treated runner to provide longer edge life and better durability.
