Brand new for 2020, CCM has unleashed their newest line of Tacks Goalie Skates that are specifically designed to wrap your foot. Now, movements around the crease are done with complete comfort.
Starting with the boot itself, the CCM Super Tacks AS3 Pro Senior Goalie Skates feature full one-piece boot monoframe technology which directly results in ultimate energy transfer for faster movements. The material on the one-piece boot is made of Rocketframe composite which combines a super lightweight with NHL caliber protection. Generally, the Super Tacks AS3 Pro skates have an anatomical form-fitting all around fit on the forefoot, heel and ankle. At the boot collar on the heel, you will find an asymmetrical design which provides the ability for the goalie to get into a deep stance without the outer edge digging into their heels. This stiff and comfortable support is integral for high level performance.
Moving to the tongue, CCM has utilised a memory foam with moulded lace bite protection to further provide comfort and stability throughout their use. Adding to the comfort, the AS3 Pro skates come with a TotalDri Liner that has a moisture wicking material to help keep feet dry and from slipping inside the skate.
For the midsole and footbed, the AS3 Pro skates come with a combined lightweight design and moulded footbeds to improve energy transfer during all movements in the crease. This entire boot, midsole and footbed are heat mouldable to help the break in period and maximise the comfort of the skate.
The Super Tacks AS3 Pro skate comes with the new and improved quick-release SpeedBlade XSG holder. For goalies who like to swap their steel with ease, the XSG holder allows for that action without the steel getting loose in the holder. Specific runners are designed for the XSG holder, and you will find that the skate comes with XSG1 Black steel, with an extra 2mm of height. The black coating helps provide a longer edge life and the extra height gives even more life for sharpening’s and attack angle.
Compared to the Super Tacks 9380 Senior goalie skate, the Super Tacks AS3 Pro will feature higher quality construction with higher grade materials in the insole, outsole and holder.
If you are an elite-level butterfly goaltender who is looking for ultimate comfort without losing energy transfer in all crease movements, look no further than the CCM Super Tacks AS3 Pro Senior Goalie Skates.
