First Look: CCM Super Tacks AS1 Protective
Content by Tyler Dowd
Brand new for the 2020 season is the Super Tacks AS1 Protective line from CCM Hockey! The Super Tacks line is one of the most easily-recognizable lines in hockey, with everything from sticks to skates. CCM looks to build upon this widely popular line with the release of their brand new AS1 Protective Equipment that incorporates their most advanced features to date!
CCM Super Tacks AS1 Gloves
Getting right into it, lets take a look at the new Super Tacks AS1 Gloves. Thanks to the anatomical feel and D30 protection, the Super Tacks AS1 Gloves offer superior comfort, feel, and protection. The Super Tacks AS1 Gloves feature an anatomical fit that is snug on the hand and progressively opens towards the wrist and cuffs.
CCM incorporated their soft Pro Clarino palm and Pro Flexthumb for an unrivaled fit and feel. Thanks to an extra layer of reinforcement added to the palm, the Super Tacks AS1 Gloves have some of the most durable palms on the market!
Paired with the palm is CCM’s D30 protection in the inserts that fully protect the hand while maintaining a high level of mobility. Moving to the interior, the Super Tacks AS1 Gloves feature a Polygiene-treated liner, which helps prevent odor causing bacteria.
CCM Super Tacks AS1 Pants
The Super Tacks AS1 Pants are CCM’s take on the traditional-cut pant. These pants feature a classic CCM cut, but will have an anatomical, close to the body feel. Additionally, the Super Tacks AS1 pants incorporate an internal belt system and a +1” pant adjustment system, giving players a customizable fit and feel.
These pants are loaded with CCM’s D30 protection in the thighs, hips, and all the way to the lower spine area. The caps are designed to disperse direct impacts away from highly sensitive areas like hip joints. The height adjustable floating spine protector offers superior impact protection, as well.
After reading about the new gloves and pants, it is no surprise that the Super Tacks AS1 Protective line was designed with protection and comfort in mind. Not only was this ideology carried out in the gloves and pants, but to the all-new Super Tacks AS1 Shoulder Pads, Elbow Pads, and Shin Guards, as well! Along with protection and comfort, CCM also focused on the customization aspect for the new Super Tacks AS1 Protective line, making them CCM’s most protective and customizable gear to date!
CCM Super Tacks AS1 Shoulder Pads
The Super Tacks AS1 Shoulder Pads feature a dual-layer base jacket, preventing excessive movement of the pads during the gameplay, resulting in an anatomical, close to the body feel. The shoulder caps are constructed on CCM’s D30 material, designed to disperse the shock from direct impacts. Additionally, the Super Tacks AS1 Shoulder Pads feature an adjustable strap system, allowing for front and rear adjustment for a highly customizable fit.
CCM Super Tacks AS1 Elbow Pads
The CCM Super Tacks AS1 Elbow Pads feature a dual-layer bicep construction, providing players with elite comfort and protection. This goes hand in hand with the D30-infused elbow cap for superior protection. Also, as seen on all of the new AS1 protective line, the Super Tacks AS1 elbow pads utilize the new adjustable strap system that allows players to customize the way the pads fit and feel on their arms.
CCM Super Tacks AS1 Shin Guards
The CCM Super Tacks AS1 Shin Guards follow suit with the rest of this new product line: comfort, protection, and a customizable fit. These new shin guards feature a JDP-constructed knee cap for ultimate protection. Additionally, they are lined with CCM’s D30 protection on the interior, giving the Super Tacks AS1 Shin Guards an added layer of protection and comfort. Like the rest of the line, the Super Tacks AS1 have incorporated their new adjustable strapping system, allowing for a personalized fit.
The CCM Super Tacks AS1 Protective Line is available for pre-order now, and hits stores on April 26th!
