The Tacks line of hockey skates from CCM has been one of the most prominent and reliable lines in the hockey industry for years. With the 2018 models, this statement holds true. The CCM Tacks 9070 ice hockey skates are a middle price point hockey skate, yet they still offer many of the great features we see in the higher-end models.
Starting with the quarter package, CCM used their Metaframe Technology to shape the boot of this skate using Rocketframe Composite. This process and material are going to provide skaters with an incredible fit and lightweight feel. The core of the Tacks 9070 ice hockey skates is the Speedcore 2 that we saw on the Tacks 9080 model. This is a lightweight, rigid, and thermos-formable core that will provide excellent performance.
Now moving to the inside of the skate and the comfort features. CCM used their HD micro fiber liner with Durazone abrasion protection to offer skaters a highly durable liner that is resistant to wear. At the top of the boot you will see the smooth contour comfort pad which offers excellent foot and ankle comfort. Back inside the boot, you’ll feel the multi density memory foam ankle padding, which make the Tacks 9070 ice hockey skates feel as though you have a customized fit. To protect the front of your foot, CCM used a 7mm felt tongue with embossed lace-bite protection. This tongue features layers of reinforcement for increased comfort and protection. Moving farther down, we will look at the anatomical response footbed from CCM. This is their standard footbed and is designed to provides support and comfort.
The bottom half of the skate is where a lot of the performance features live. For the outsole of the Tacks 9070 Ice hockey skates, CCM used a concave reinforced TPU outsole with an exhaust system. This outsole offers a rigid design that will help transfer energy with each stride. Now moving to the holder and runner combination we will notice that the Tacks 9070 ice hockey skates have the reliable and durable SB4.0 holder with the SB stainless steel runner. This combination is tried and true to be reliable and offer lasting performance.
