CCM Super Tacks AS1 Skates
- Updated: February 2, 2018
CCM changed the game with their one-piece hockey skate back in 2016, and in 2018 they will take it even further with the release of the all-new CCM Super Tacks AS1 Skates. Let’s dive right into the details and find out what is unique and special about the Super Tacks AS1 skates.
The CCM Super Tacks AS1 skates will continue to use CCM’s incredible MonoFrame 360 technology. This one-piece boot frame, constructed with premium carbon composite, increases the foot contact area with the entire skate boot, leading to a better overall fit and improved energy transfer with each stride.
In terms of fit, the CCM Super Tacks AS1 skates are going to stick with the same anatomical fit that you’re familiar with already. The skates will offer a form-fitting 360 degree fit around your forefoot, heel, and ankle. Fit is improved with CCM’s Speedcore 3 technology within the core of the boot. This super-lightweight, rigid core is going to be thermoformable, meaning you get the benefits of an awesome customized fit and incredible performance.
Inside the CCM Super Tacks AS1 skates, you’ll find a TotalDri pro liner with durazone abrasion protection. This material offers high-performance moisture wicking to keep your feet dry all game long. Due to the rigidity of the skates, CCM has included a dense padding around the collar of the boot for impressive comfort. Additionally, they’ll be offering multi-density memory foam ankle padding to aid in comfort. The asymmetrical foam comfort pads will wrap anatomically around your foot to help offer a more customized fit and, of course, improve comfort.
When it comes to the tongue, CCM has added more flex to the CCM Super Tacks AS1 skates with their Tritech flex tongue with molded lace bite protection. This setup provides the advanced protection and comfort you need, while also adding that forward flex that is most crucial to each stride out on the ice.
Beneath your feet, the CCM Super Tacks AS1 skates will offer a lightweight composite midsole for greater energy transfer. Your foot will also rest on a brand new CCM Orthomove footbed which offers customized arch support inserts to fit your needs. Swapping out for the arch support level you need will help to enhance the fit of the skate and improve performance.
Underneath your skates, a SpeedBlade 4.0 holder remains the standard, and SpeedBlade black runners are included. These premium runners receive a special oxide treatment which increases the hardness, gives you a longer edge life, and helps to resist corrosion.
The brand-new CCM Super Tacks AS1 skates will be available for pre-order on March 27th from our friends at Ice Warehouse, and will officially launch on April 27th.
