The CCM Tacks 110 hockey helmet combo includes plenty of protective and comfort features for its price point. CCM has emphasized both excellent comfort and fit throughout the entire Tacks line, including the 110 model.
- Two-piece shell for impact absorption
- Air venting for maximum air flow through the shell
- Multi density foam liner for solid comfort and protection
- Tool-free adjustment for a personalized fit
The Tacks 110 with cage features a 2-piece shell with the same pro-preferred look used in the top-of-the-line Tacks 710 model. This shell’s geometry helps to absorb impacts from all areas. The construction also includes plenty of air venting throughout the shell. This venting system helps to keep your head cool during games, whether you’re breaking a sweat in warm-ups or hopping out on the ice in overtime. And with a professional look, this helmet has a style that any level of player can appreciate.
Under the shell, CCM uses a multi-density foam liner for solid comfort and protection. This traditional VN foam uses a top and bottom layer, combining to produce a great combination of both protection and comfort. The bottom layer is a thick foam that provides most of the protective features, helping to absorb impacts from all areas. The top layer is a memory-like foam, adding another degree of protection while also giving you the comfortable feel you’re looking for throughout the helmet.
Comfortability and fit are also enhanced with the single tool-free adjustment mechanism found throughout the Tacks line. This system uses an occipital adjustment tool at the back of the shell, allowing you to expand and contract the helmet to give you a personalized fit. A helmet, like any piece of protective gear, must fit correctly if the protective and comfort features are to function as intended. The Tacks 110 uses this adjustment feature to ensure that you are getting the best fit possible with this model.
A CCM cage is also included in this model, using the 580 facemask for face and chin protection. This cage comes in Silver, with thin round wires designed to provide great visibility. This cage also features a multi-density foam chin cup with fabric, providing high levels of both comfort and protection.
Scientists indicate that brain injuries and concussions are mainly due to linear and rotational accelerations of the brain. No hockey helmet can prevent or eliminate the risk of head injury, including concussions, but a properly fitting helmet with protective features is crucial to limiting injuries of all kinds on the ice. The CCM Tacks 110 offers solid protective and comfort features with fit enhancements for a low price-point helmet.
