The CCM Tacks 210 hockey helmet 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 210 model.
- Two-piece shell for impact absorption
- A sleek low-profile look with geometry that helps absorb impacts
- Multi density VN and EVA foam liner for solid comfort and protection
- Tool-free adjustment for a personalized fit
The Tacks 210 features a 2-piece shell with the same pro-preferred look used in the top-of-the-line Tacks X model. This shell’s geometry helps to absorb impacts from all areas. The construction also includes plenty of air venting throughout the shell, which helps to keep your head cool throughout the game.
Under the shell, CCM uses a multi-density VN and EVA foam liner for solid comfort and protection. There are fewer gaps in the liner for a more head hugging fit and customized feel. 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 210 uses this adjustment feature to ensure that you are getting the best fit possible with this model.
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 210 offers solid protective and comfort features with fit enhancements at a low price-point.
