Elite players need high-level equipment, including elbow pads, that will keep them protected but won’t restrict their movement. The 2022 CCM Tacks line of protective equipment does just that, especially in the top-of-the-line models, with the help of many top technologies and innovations.
One such feature is D3O smart material. This technology offers a lightweight feel that provides terrific protection against impacts of all kinds on the ice. D3O has a unique molecular structure that allows the 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 regardless of the hits you take during a game.
In the AS-V Pro elbow pad, D3O is combined with CCM’s JDP cap and molded foam coverage which helps to disperse the force of impact away from the elbow. In the forearm, D3O is used with compress molded exposed HD foam. These technologies combine to offer elite overall protection down the arm.
CCM implements their 2-piece flexmotion construction with extended coverage for bicep protection. This reinforced molded EVA foam and anatomical design optimizes mobility in the upper arm while providing extended protection.
For the attachment system, the AS-V Pro includes a dual pull middle lock strap and wrap around forearm strap. This 360-degree surround strap system is designed to secure the elbow pad in place while maintaining an excellent level of comfort and mobility. With three high-quality straps, this pad will move as you do and stay locked in place. Speaking of comfort, CCM uses a sublimated liner to keep you cool an dry through out the game.
While there are other pieces of protective equipment that get more attention, elbow pads are very important and vital to injury prevention. CCM offers excellent protection and mobility in the Tacks AS-V Pro pad, built for the elite player who is looking for a comfortable and high-performing option.
