CCM Tacks 9080 shoulder pads are built for the player who is looking for high-end protective and mobility features at a lower price point than the top-of-the-line option.
- D3O smart material for lightweight protection
- Dual-layer stretch base jacket for a personalized fit
- HD foam torso for added impact resistance
- Molded PE floating spine for increased mobility
- Customizable bicep adjustment for enhanced arm protection
- Comfort mesh liner for dry comfort
The Tacks 9080 model, like the top-end Super Tacks AS1, features D3O smart material in many areas of the shoulder pads, providing premium impact protection and shock absorption. In the shoulder caps, the 9080 features D3O and JDP cap construction, designed to disperse the force of impact away from the shoulders. These technologies combine to provide excellent impact resistance from any type of contact. In the sternum, CCM uses molded PE foam to go along with the D3O technology. This elite foam, when combined with D3O, offers high-end floating protection, allowing the pads to move with you for enhanced injury prevention in this key area.
CCM implements their dual-layer stretch base jacket and adjustable strap system for the construction of the 9080. This anatomical 3D design prevents the shoulder pads from lifting so the protective features, like D3O, stay close to the body, acting as an extension of the torso. And the adjustable strap system provides a personalized fit, ensuring the protective features of the entire shoulder pad work as they are designed to.
CCM also places a focus on protecting key areas like the kidneys and spine. The Tacks 9080 uses HD foam for excellent kidney coverage and molded PE foams for floating spine coverage, protecting you as you move. And for added torso protection, CCM uses their removable belly pad, which also provides customized comfort.
The Tacks 9080 includes a customizable bicep adjustment for pro-level protection and a personalized fit to help secure the pads to the upper arms, and also features a comfort mesh liner designed for maximum air flow and mobility to keep you dry and cool while keeping the pads lightweight.
With plenty of top-end technologies and performance benefits, the Tacks 9080 shoulder pad proves to be an excellent option for the elite player who is looking for a great value.
