The Super Tacks AS1 shin pad picks up where the original Super Tacks model left off. One of our bestselling pro level shin pads is further improved. Upgrades to the AS1 include a new liner, strapping system and new shin cap design while still maintaining some of its most popular features like the JDP knee cap and D30 Smart Material.
The pro level JDP knee cap is designed to disperse the force of impact away from the knee. D30 Smart Material works in conjunction to further absorb shock from impacts.
A new adjustable, exposed high-density foam thigh protector ensures your pants don’t end up getting caught up mid stride while also providing complete coverage.
Pro strength anatomical shin cap design has a mid-volume shape. New tape groove located at the top of the shin cap designed to lock shin pad tape in the optimal position.
One of the reasons the Super Tacks AS1 is one of the most protective shin pads on the market can be credited to its great liner design. The use of mid density foam around the knee cut-out “donut” area prevents the foam from over compressing and saving your knee from bottoming out on big impacts.
The liner is asymmetrical and has another mid density insert along the inner shin channel, resulting in a locked in fit that also steps up to protect when blocking heavy shots.
There’s also an option to detach the bottom portion of the liner to allow extra room for players who tuck their tongues under their shin pads. It’s a nice little feature for skaters looking to increase mobility.
Finally, the liner is removable for quicker drying and so it can be washed.
New customizable adjustment strap system for the lower calf accommodates pretty much any size calf. The upper lock strap has a nice comfort liner where it touches the back of your knee but is designed to securely lock in the fit.
The AS1’s redesigned calf protector features premium exposed high-density foam combined with D30 for superior shot blocking and slash protection.
