The three best CCM hockey gloves for 2022 offer optimal performance in a glove’s two most important functions: protecting the hands from injury, and allowing enough comfort and freedom of movement for a player to work magic with the stick. Too much bulky padding means you can't stick handle, pass, or shoot with maximum finesse. You need enough sensitivity in a glove to feel the stick, and your range of motion should be as expansive as possible. Superior hockey gloves strike a good balance, offering both effective padding and the ability to dangle at will. These gloves from CCM deliver this balance to match your skill level—and your budget.
CCM Jetspeed FT4 Pro Gloves ($209.99)
CCM took the most popular features from the Jetspeed glove and improved them in a modern design that feels as great as it looks. With specialized technologies found throughout the glove, the FT4 Pro offers performance features the elite-level player wants.
Constructed with pro-approved polyester and synthetic leather, the Jetspeed FT4 Pro includes premium Zotefoam, HD polyethylene foam, and polyethylene inserts for optimal finger and back-of-hand protection. This coverage gives players three levels of high-end materials for total defense against slashes and impacts in a lightweight package.
Today’s players continue to prefer the tapered fit on the Jetspeed gloves. With a new back roll design and tighter fitting backhand and fingers, the FT4 Pro gloves follow a perfectly anatomical shape for ultimate comfort. This ergonomic fit combined with the pre-angled open Flexcuff and two-piece Pro Flexthumb make these gloves some of the most comfortable and flexible on the market.
The palms feature Pro Clarino with reinforcement for a seamless palm-to-cuff transition inside and out, in comfortable gloves with an elite-level feel. Inside the glove, CCM installs a polygiene-treated laminated liner that includes an antimicrobial treatment to help control odor-causing bacteria. PU cushion foam in the liner delivers added softness.
CCM Super Tacks AS1 Gloves ($199.99)
CCM Super Tacks AS1 hockey gloves represent an equipment evolution in protection and feel. The Super Tacks AS1 provides an anatomical fit that is snug around the hand yet opens up toward the wrist and cuff to enhance flexibility. This design delivers ultimate control and feel without sacrificing mobility or comfort—ideal for the high-level player who needs a glove that acts as an extension of his or her hand.
Super Tacks AS1 gloves include CCM’s responsive D30 smart material in the fingers and back hand. This material allows molecules to flow freely in standard conditions, providing a soft and flexible feel. But at the moment of an impact, the molecules tighten to absorb and dissipate the energy of the blow, delivering unparalleled defense. In this glove, CCM combined the D30 with premium polyethylene foams and inserts to produce lightweight yet enhanced impact protection and shock absorption in key areas. The senior model includes a two-piece, pro-flex thumb construction for increased mobility and excellent grip.
The Super Tacks FT4 features a Pro Clarino palm with Clarino reinforcement, offering a pro-level feel and exceptional durability. Because the palm incurs the most wear-and-tear on a hockey glove, CCM commits to providing high-quality materials in this area. Designed for the elite player who needs a durable option, the extra-sturdy palm also benefits a player at any level who wants a glove that won’t wear down quickly.
CCM Tacks 4R Lite Pro Gloves ($139.99)
CCM adapted their Tacks 4R Lite Pro gloves from the popular 4R Pro model. A custom hockey glove available exclusively at Pure Hockey, CCM’s 4R Lite Pro comes with an array of features that add up to cool style and impressive protection.
CCM constructs these gloves with pro-selected polyester to help maximize fit. At the top of the glove, an open, segmented cuff with polyethylene inserts offers increased protection and more freedom of movement near the wrist to optimize stick handling.
For added protection in the fingers and backhand, the Tacks 4R Lite Pro gloves include dual-density foams with polyethylene inserts. These high-quality materials provide layers of impact protection against common hockey hits like slashes and blocked shots. These foams also keep the gloves lightweight to improve performance. The 4R Lite Pro includes a reinforced Pro palm that offers a high-level stick feel and solid durability. A flexible thumb bends towards the stick but not backwards, guarding against the common injury of hyperextension during contact.
