The CCM Tacks 9090 ice hockey skate shares almost every specification with the top-end AS1 skate, except the 9090 model comes in a two-piece boot construction for players who appreciate a traditional, two-piece feel. Otherwise, the 9090 offers pro-level materials and features at a more affordable price than the AS1.

  • SpeedBlade 4.0 holder with SpeedBlade Black runners for geometrical stiffness and corrosion-free durability
  • Premium composite outsole for a light, rigid transfer of energy
  • RocketFrame Composite quarter package with SpeedCore III technology for stiff, thermoformable fit and performance
  • Double stitching throughout for increased durability
  • TriTech Flex tongue for comfort, mobility, and protection
  • Embossed lace-bite guard for impact protection
  • Total-Dri liner for soft, dry comfort
  • Smooth Contour collars for high-ankle abrasion protection
  • DuraZone patches for protection against shin guard wear
  • Anatomical Response footbed for vented, contoured comfort

The Tacks 9090 enjoys an upgrade with CCM’s SpeedBlade Black runners, coated in a black oxide that helps the blades stay sharp and corrosion-free, and held to the skate in the SpeedBlade 4.0 holder with SpeedRib construction. This unique geometrical design harnesses the power of triangles for increased torsional rigidity and improved energy transfer though each stride. The holders also offer one of the most aggressive turning radiuses available.

The holder joins CCM’s premium composite outsole—the 9090 is the only Tacks skate to feature this specification—that’s lighter and more rigid, akin to the SpeedRib technology, for better energy transfer. The outsole is also vented to allow interior moisture to escape the boot for dry on-ice comfort and a quicker off-ice dry time. The 9090 also features a composite midsole.

The quarter package comes in CCM’s RocketFrame Composite material, with a SpeedCore III inner core. The SpeedCore III offers the same stiffness as the AS1 skate, for pro-level response and performance. Both materials are extremely lightweight and highly thermoformable. The new 3-D lasted process offers a superbly anatomical fit, and when baked for a custom fit, the skate will feel broken in before it even touches the ice.

CCM emphasizes durability this year, and the injected vamping improves the skate’s durability, as do the brass eyelets, the eyelet facing, and the double-stitching in the tongue, tendon guard, and vamping. The tendon guard is fully injected, and an upgrade over last year’s version with more stiffness and durability.

The top of the quarter package includes CCM’s Smooth Contour collars, helping reduce annoying high-ankle abrasions—a common problem in high-end boots. The Tacks 9090 tongue is CCM’s TriTech Flex model with lace-bite protection. The 7mm white felt delivers pro-level thickness and the injected center foams promise excellent comfort, mobility, and protection. The embossed lace-bite guard protects the skater’s foot against lace bite, but the embossing also helps stabilize the laces for a consistently accurate tongue wrap all game long.

The Tacks 9090 skate includes a Total-Dri liner to wick away unvented moisture from the foot for a soft, dry, comfortable feel. The liner’s textures help lock the foot in place when it’s sweaty, for power maintenance and foot stability. And for skaters who wear their shin guards beneath the skate’s tongue, DuraZone patches help reduce liner wear. The ankle pockets come with thick memory foams for a comfortable feel and fit. The footbed is CCM’s vented Anatomical Response model that works with the outsole vent to help push moisture out of the boot and promote a cool airflow. The Tacks 9090, like all Tacks skates, is a medium-volume skate for players with standard forefoot, instep, and heel-depth dimensions.

The CCM Tacks 9090 is built and designed for elite-level players who expect the best performance from their skates. The two-piece composite boot design and pro-level features make the 9090 an attractive offering for players looking to save a little money but who still want to hit the ice wearing one of the best skates on the market.

SENIOR Hockey Skates
Senior hockey skates are sized to fit adults and full grown teenagers with a Men's US shoe size of 7 or greater.

JUNIOR Hockey Skates
Junior hockey skates are sized to fit kids in the range of approximately 8 to 12 years old with a US shoe size of 2 to 6.5.

YOUTH Hockey Skates
Youth hockey skates are sized to fit toddlers and young children in the age range of approximately 9 years old and younger with a US youth shoe size of 1.5 or smaller.

*Female Skaters*
The difference between men's shoes and women's shoes is 1.5 to 2 sizes. So, if you wear size 9 women's shoes, that translates to a men's size 7.5 or 7.0, which would put you in a size 6 senior hockey skate. More simply put, go 3 sizes down from your women's shoe size in order to find your hockey skate size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable and perform excellent!!!! I've been going back and forth on replacing my Bauer Vapors that I've had for 8 years. Didn't want to because I hate breaking in new skates so I had been contemplating just getting new blades put in again. After trying on a few different pairs of skates and fell in love with these immediately when I put them on. After they were baked they felt even better. I was nervous to use them for the first time this past Thursday night but to my surprise and had never felt better on the ice. I normally get my skates done with a radius but was advised to hold off by the salesman because he said these were higher in the back so already had a forward rake to them. I had them do a 5/8" cut and just used them right out of the box and it was unreal. I am so happy with these skates I only wish I had bought them sooner. They were expensive but it was money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skate! Let me start off by saying that I've been using Bauer skates for 40 years. My last 2 skates were the Supreme 5000,which lasted 12 years and the Vapor X90 which wore out after 2 years. The material on the liner wore out from skating in 2 mens league games a week in such a short time. Totally unacceptable! I got these skates around 3 weeks ago. They are very comfortable with amazing heel lock. They skate like a dream. Very supportive and do everything that I ask them to do and then some. Transitions,crossovers front and back,stride and explosiveness are all to an elite level. What really sold me on the skate is the construction of the liner. Specifically the upper part that comes in contact with your shinpads. It is made of a clarino like material which is way more durable than anything that Bauer is offering. Even in their top of the $900+ skates. It is more substantial than the Ultra Tacks liner which costs more even on clearance. It also has a nice pad at the top around the collar. While not a one piece boot like the AS1,I would say that it compares to the boots Bauer is putting out at the top of their lines at a substantial price reduction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best skates I've ever owned. I'm extremely impressed with my first pair of Tacks. But, I don't know how qualified I am to review them since all my earlier skates were entry-level ones. (50-years ago, my first pair were used, trade-ins.) After only 3-games of use, I'm still in the break-in stage. But, as to skating/performance, I adjusted to them in a couple minutes. The foot/ankle support and lock is great. I Iike the super-hardened, black SS blades and quick change, bolt & nut fasteners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade Was skating on an old pair of CCM Super Tacks 652's and these were an awesome upgrade. Break-in time was super short and by the end of my first ice-time, I was skating as well as I ever did in the 652's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tacks 9090 Great skates once they are broken in. If you have a wide foot, this skate is for you.

How would you compare these to the supremes? Better or similar?

Asked by: Roc 760
These will have a similar type of anatomical fit as the Bauer Supreme skates.
