The CCM Tacks 7092 Hockey Shin Guards replace the Tacks 5052 Shin Guards in CCMs previous Tacks line. The CCM Tacks 7092 Hockey Shin Pads are built to suit the needs of an elite level player offering great protection and comfort. The pad features CCMs D3O LITE impact sensitive foam in the knee cap as well as the calf area. The knee cap is covered by a hard plastic (PE) shell with CCMs JDP design allowing impacts to be dispersed and pushed away from the knee joint. The Tacks 7092 Hockey Shin Guards can withstand all types of abuse from pucks and sticks with its medium density foams found throughout the knee wing and calf wrap. The knee wing on the CCM Tacks 7092 Hockey Shin Pads provides some extra protection from shots with more of CCMs mid-density foams paired with plastic inserts.
Inside the pad is a microfiber liner that helps wick away sweat and provide extra comfort with segmented low-density foams. The liner can easily be removed from the pad to make cleaning the pad a breeze.
This year CCM has introduced a new strapping system for their Tacks line which features a nylon strap on the top of the pad called the lock strap. This strap features a mesh sling to provide comfort to the back of the leg and protect against the strap rubbing up against the leg. Below that strap is a 3-inch wide elastic strap that is designed to create a close, anatomical fit and secure the calf wrap."
