- Mid density foam thigh guard and PE shin cap
CCM places a focus on all the key areas to make sure your legs are protected from shots and stick checks. In the calf, the AS 580 includes compress molded, exposed foam. This offers good protection in an area that is often neglected but nonetheless important to protect.
In the knee and shin caps, CCM includes JDP and PE plastic. In the knee, the protective comfort donut is combined with the high-end JDP construction, designed to disperse the force of impact away from the area, a great feature for blocking shots. In the shin, the anatomical PE cap includes a tape groove to lock in hockey tape, offering you the feel you’re looking for and a unique feature to help keep your pads secure throughout the game.
The AS 580 shin pad includes a two-strap attachment system, which includes an upper lock strap which secures the pad to the knee area, and a length adjustable calf strap, allowing some personalization in terms of fit depending on your calf size and how snug you want your pads to feel.
CCM also includes a removable sublimated liner to allow for a custom fit and the ability to remove it for cleaning.
Shin guards are vital to keeping you on the ice and injury free, especially in a fast-paced game where blocking shots and stick checks are common. Even if you play infrequently, you’ll want a model that includes plenty of protective and comfort features for the right price. The CCM Tacks AS 580 proves to be a great choice, with solid technological features at a great value.
