CCM includes their top-of-the-line D3O smart material in the 9080 model. D3O has a unique molecular structure which allows molecules to flow freely in standard conditions, giving the material a soft and flexible feel. But on impact, the molecules lock together to absorb and dissipate impact energy, reducing the amount of force transmitted to your body. This means that the stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, offering you unparalleled protection. And after the impact occurs, the molecules return to their free-flowing state, giving you maximum comfort and mobility.
CCM strategically positions D3O technology in the 9080 model to offer the best combination of protection and comfort. In the calf, D3O smart material is partnered with compress molded exposed foam with PE inserts. These technologies combine to produce excellent shot blocking protection. In the knee caps, JDP construction is reinforced with D3O for a pro-level cap designed to disperse the force of impact away from the knee.
The Tacks 9080 shins have a two-strap attachment system - an upper lock strap and a length adjustable calf strap. These combine to secure the top and bottom of the shin pad to your leg, and the adjustable strap allows for some customization based on the size of your calf and the feel you’re looking for. This model also includes a removable comfort liner with knee-cut out for airflow, a personalized feel, and the ability to keep the liner clean.
Shin pads may not be the flashiest piece of equipment, but they are vital to protecting your legs and keeping you on the ice shift after shift. The CCM Tacks 9080 includes plenty of performance and protective features you need to play your best game, making this model an excellent option at this price point.
