Being able to innovate is one thing, but doing so in a way that provides benefits to both professionals and the regular consumer are paramount. CCM simultaneously does both to bring the best in hockey technology to the all-new Super Tacks skate. According to CCM, the Super Tacks was roughly five years in the making which had engineers innovate through leading hockey biomechanics research and state-of-the-art construction technology. CCM utilizes some key upgrades and innovative designs to maximize performance while skating to help you take your game to the next level. Let’s take a closer look at the revolutionary design of the CCM Super Tacks skate.

The biggest change seen on the CCM Super Tacks skate is the use of Monoframe 360 Technology. Essentially, the boot is a one-piece carbon composite frame with a fully anatomical shape, molded to the player’s foot to wrap around 360 degrees. This helps provide the player with more foot-to-skate contact for more direct energy transfer. CCM has also eliminated the use of an outsole so you can put more power into your stride and onto the ice. Due to the nature of the boot design, the skate delivers an anatomical heel-lock, perhaps one of the best we’ve see on any CCM skate to date. With the design of the skate you can expect a better, more customized fit overall.
For the core of the skate, CCM utilizes a heat-moldable t-form design and this facilitates the skate being extremely lightweight, rigid, as well as thermo-formable. These features coupled together provide the skate with a core that excels in generating the most performance possible from your input during your stride. The midsole of the skate is comprised of composite, designed to enhance energy transfer from boot to blade.
Moving to the inside of the skate, the Super Tacks features a TotalDri liner with a Durazone abrasion patch. TotalDri helps to keep your feet dry and the skate lightweight by wicking away any excess moisture that might accumulate within the skate boot. CCMs conscious choice of using an abrasion patch offers high resistance to constant wear and aims to prevent any unwanted tear over time.
Noticing the subtleties around the skate, CCM uses a Smooth Contour Pro padding design around the collar of the boot for superior foot and ankle comfort. This should help keep you comfortable during those long sessions on the ice or daily ice times. The use of Multi-Density Memory Foam in the padding of the ankles, helps to wrap around the player’s foot for an anatomical, customized fit for increased comfort and better control of the skate.
Pro Level Performance
CCM doesn’t compromise when it comes to the performance of the Super Tacks. Specifically, the ADV Pro Molded Tongue with injected lace-bite protection is lightweight and molded to the player’s foot and upper ankle to provide a better fit along with increase comfort. The additional lace-bite protection that has been added to the tongue provide enhanced protection against any sticks or pucks that might come in contact with the skate.
Moving to the bottom of the skate, CCM outfit the Super Tacks with the Speedblade 4.0 holder that has proven durability with an increased attack angle. Together, you’re able to get the most out of your stride with better cornering. As for the runner, Speedblade Black provides excellent performance and the oxide treatment on the steel increases edge life with enhanced resistance to corrosion.
If CCMs goal was to design a skate with superior fit, and unheard of performance, then they certainly succeeded. With its 360-degree anatomical design, the skate keeps you locked in with zero heel slip, and perhaps, the most comfortable fit of any CCM skate out there. Additionally, from the construction of the tongue, and subtle ankle and collar padding, you and wear these skates for daily ice times, and still be comfortable.
One thing is for certain, the moment you take your first stride in the Super Tacks, you will definitely feel more explosive than before. Give these skates a chance, you’ll be blown away. As always drop by so we can fit you up with the correct skate size for the best fit possible.
