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.

CCM Super Tacks AS2 Pro Hockey Stick Review
This year’s model of the Super Tacks stick comes in the form of the AS2 Pro. Much of the same thought process of designing the AS1 went into the AS2 Pro.
