CCM’s commitment to offering high-level mobility and protection in the new 2022 Tacks line continues in the Tacks AS-V elbow pad. Like the top-of-the-line model, the AS-V features D3O smart material for enhanced protection throughout the construction of this pad. D3O works using a unique molecular structure which allows molecules to flow freely in standard conditions, giving the material a soft and flexible feel. On impact, the molecules lock together to absorb and dissipate impact energy. After the impact, the molecules return to their free-flowing state. This means that the stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, offering you unparalleled protection.
For the elbow cap, JDP technology is reinforced by D3O, providing a lightweight construction that disperses the force of impact away from the elbow joint, while also offering elite impact and shock absorption technology for overall protection. For forearm coverage, D3O is combined with compressed molded PE foam for excellent impact resistance, giving you full protection down the arm.
For the upper arm, CCM uses a 2-piece flex motion construction and sublimated liner for comfort and mobility, while also working in tandem with the Tacks shoulder pads to provide full coverage.
The Tacks AS-V elbows feature middle lock strap and wraparound forearm strap for a locked in feel. These attachments are unique from each other but work well in this three-strap system, providing 360-degree surround strapping developed to maintain an excellent level of comfort while remaining secured in place.
CCM’s new Tacks line of protective equipment offers excellent features that promote comfort, mobility, and protection. In the Tacks AS-V elbow pad, CCM has used some top-of-the-line innovations that make this model an excellent option for this price point.
