All new for the 2022 CCM Tacks AS-590 skate is the ability to choose which runner you would like to purchase with your skate. You will have a choice between the Step Blacksteel, Step V-Steel or the Step Steel.
Note: Runners will arrive in separate packaging and require simple installation
STEP Blacksteel Runners
STEP Blacksteel is coated with a layer of carbon nanoparticles to create an incredibly fine hard edge. This will maximize your skating speed by requiring less energy to move on the ice.
STEP V-Steel Runners
The Stainless Steel surface is carefully polished to obtain a mirror image for a sharper edge after every sharpening and reduced resistance on the ice. With optimal glide, you use less energy during games and get more precise turns.
STEP Steel Runners
The Step Steel Runners are made with high grade steel and have a high polish finish. They have a high-precision raised profile to give hockey players a better turning radius, a superior glide, and a longer-lasting sharpening life.
Finding the right skate for you means finding the model that fits your foot best. If you’re unsure, or you’re looking for the most accurate measurement you can get, visit your local Pure Hockey. CCM’s Tacks line offers a tapered, regular, or wide fit depending on your foot. This will allow for a customized feel, closer fit and faster strides. For a better understanding of the fitting system, check out our CCM performance fit system blog.
The AS-590 has a one-piece quarter package boot and is crafted out of RFM composite, an NHL caliber lightweight material. The RFM composite has a carbon blend that is engineered for the modern power skater with intense strides looking for explosiveness without restriction. The carbon composite wraps under the boot and because of this, energy is no longer lost or absorbed by a glued and nailed outsole, but instead is now transferred directly through the boot to the ice.
Included with this skate is CCM’s Asymmetrical Tritech Tongue with EVA foam that provides excellent comfort and protection. This multi-layer 7mm tongue has asymmetrical flex points for a better wrap and foam inserts to shield from slashes and pucks.
The AS-590 features an unmatched custom feel by making the tongues interchangeable. For additional purchase you can switch out various tongue inserts to optimize feel and protection in your skate. The XS Tongue System gives the player options in thickness to either increase or decrease the inner boot volume to achieve the best fit.
Improved on this year’s Tacks line is the tendon guard. CCM uses the Powerflex Tendon to help improve the range of motion for fuller strides and increase skating power.
Helping with the custom feel is CCM’s multi-density memory foam ankle padding and Total Dri-Pro liner with polygiene. The memory foam padding includes a seamless comfort finish that wraps anatomically around your foot. The Total-Dri Pro liner with polygiene helps the skater’s foot resist abrasions while also wicking away unvented moisture.
Also found inside the boot is CCM’s Ortholite UltraLite footbed. This is a streamlined approach to the footbed that will save weight in key areas to make the skate lighter. In addition, it’s going to add comfort for the bottom of the foot and is built to release moisture out of the bottom of the boot to keep your foot dryer during play.
Rounding out this impressive skate is the Speedblade XS Holder. CCM has improved on their spring-lock system to create the SpeedBlade Xchange System; a positive-lock mechanism that tightly secures the blade to the holder and makes swapping out blades more efficient. Using this technology is as easy as rolling the BladeLock dial until you feel resistance, then popping the blade out. Place your new blade into the holder, turn back the dial, and you can be back in the game without missing a shift.
CCM has included several new upgrades into the 2022 Tacks AS-590 skate that focuses on power and explosiveness. If you are an elite-level player looking for a less expensive skate or a performance player looking to jump up a model, the Tacks AS-590 is a great option.
