CCM uses the top-of-the-line D3O smart material in some key areas of the 9080 model. D3O uses a unique molecular structure which allows molecules to flow freely during standard play, giving the material a soft and flexible feel. But on impact, like a body check or blocked shot, the molecules lock together to absorb and dissipate impact energy. With this tight-lock system, the stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, offering you maximum protection. And after the impact occurs, the molecules return to their free-flowing state, keeping the pants comfortable and flexible.
The hip and back are two key areas where many common injuries can occur during hockey if not properly protected. CCM uses their JDP hip cap and reinforces the area with D3O for a pro-level construction designed to disperse impact away from the hip joint while absorbing shock. And for the back, D3O is combined with a floating spine protector for a high level of impact resistance, moving as you move so the technology can do its job.
The Tacks 9080 includes molded caps in select areas of the pant for further protection. In the kidney, a molded PE cap offers pro-level impact resistance, and in the thigh, a floating molded PE cap partners with PE foam for excellent protection and comfort. The thigh guard also includes a leg zipper for a personalized fit and easy access for custom embroidery.
For overall construction, CCM uses the top-end Pro 400D premium quality nylon which reduces overall weight and optimizes durability in high-wear areas. And for fit, the 9080 includes an internal belt system developed for ultimate comfort and adjustability, a stabilized belly pad for increased protection, and a length adjusting zipper with a 1-inch length extension for customization based on your personal dimensions and fit preference.
Players need a pair of hockey pants that won’t restrict their mobility but will also keep them highly protected from the inevitable impacts of the game. The CCM Tacks 9080 is a great option for those who want the features of a high-level pant at a lower price point.
