The CCM Tacks 910 helmet is an impressive release. It has a ton of protective tech built into it as you'd expect for a premium level helmet but the first thing you'll probably notice is how soft the inside foams and liners feel to the touch – and that "feel test" really translates when you put the helmet on and CCM has stats to back up why.
Working with the University of Ottawa, thousands of helmets were tested and over 4000 hours of video analysis was done to identify and measure different types of impacts including falls to the ice, hits to boards or glass, and body to head impacts. It doesn't hurt that it has a pro validated look that is surprisingly sleek for how much padding is built into it. Let's take a closer look!
