Expect comfort, mobility, power, and performance from the Source Exclusive CCM Tacks hockey skates.
The 2018 line of Source Exclusive CCM Tacks hockey skates is about to drop. Coming to a Source For Sports near you on July 6, 2018! If you’re part of the CCM Tacks family, you’re going to love the upgrades we’ve added from the Tacks 9060, 9070, and 9080 models to offer you the very best value in the game.
The Tacks Vector Pro Skates are the crown jewel of the Source Exclusive CCM Tacks family. Built from the CCM Tacks 9080 hockey skates, the Vector Pros have NHL and Elite Level features as well as upgrades you’ll see on the top-of-the-line CCM Super Tacks AS1 hockey skates. Starting with the base features – the quarter package uses 3D-Lasted technology for a precise, ergonomic skated boot for the best possible fit. When it comes to Vector Pro boot quality, these skates live up to their name as RocketFrame Composite is a lightweight, NHL-calibre material used in the boot construction. The Vector Pros also benefit from the 9080’s SpeedCore 2 for the right amount of stiffness while remaining lightweight, rigid, and thermo-formable. The TotalDri liner and multi-density memory foam will keep your feet dry and comfortable each shift, while the abrasion resistance zones will help maintain the boot’s shape and durability. Now for upgrades which bring the Source Exclusive Tacks Vector Pros from good to great skates. Every model in the Source Exclusive CCM Tacks family is equipped with the TriTech Flex 10mm white felt tongue from the Super Tacks AS1 for supreme comfort and molded protection against lace-bite without sacrificing mobility and forward flexion. To polish it all off, at the bottom of the Tacks Vector Pros, you’ll find the popular and impressive SpeedBlade Black Oxide runner. Not only will you get more from this blade due to its oxide treatment leading to a longer edge life and corrosion resistance, but you’ll look cooler than the opponent.
CCM Tacks Vector Plus Hockey Skates
The Tacks Vector Plus skates are built from the CCM Tacks 9070 hockey skates with Super Tacks AS1 upgrades. The Vector Plus boot uses MetaFrame technology to provide an ergonomic boot along with RocketFrame Composite to maintain a light weight like the Vector Pros. The skate core is SpeedCore 2 stiffness like the Vector Pros for a rigid, lightweight, thermo-formable quality. While the 9070s have a 7mm white felt tongue, our Tacks Vector Plus skates benefit from the Super Tacks AS1 tongue for a thicker 10mm cushion of protection to protect against the hard slashes, puck contact, and lace-bite. Once again, HD Micro Fiber abrasion resistant zones assist in maintaining the longevity of this skate on the inside, so you can focus on your play and not your feet. Not only that, but multi-density memory foam and a smooth contour pad along the ankle will add the comfort you need all game long. Don’t forget the SpeedBlade Black runner for that sleek look just like the Super Tacks AS1.
CCM Tacks Vector Hockey Skates
Last but not least, the Source Exclusive CCM Tacks Vector Skates are based on the Tacks 9060 model. The baby brother of the bunch, the Vector skates take upgrades from both the CCM Tacks 9080 and 9070 models as well as the CCM Super Tacks AS1 model. The quarter package uses MetaFrame technology and a synthetic composite material providing the best ergonomics for the 9060 skate segment. SpeedCore 1 stiffness in the core provides another rigid, lightweight, and thermo-formable option for this skate segment. While the skates above benefit from the AS1’s reinforced concave TPU outsole with exhaust for ventilation, the Tacks Vector skates benefit from a similar upgrade, but from the Tacks 9070 model. Naturally, the Tacks Vectors have the pleasure of using the AS1 tongue as well, meaning 10mm of comfortable protection without sacrificing forward flexion and mobility.
