The CCM Tacks 9090 Senior Hockey Skates is in a category of its own with an elite level skate at such a competitive price point. The all new 9090 will feature a 3D-Lasted anatomical fit for maximum comfort and performance. This is built with CCM's RocketFrame, which is a NHL-caliber lightweight composite material, for a lightweight boot that wont compromise on stiffness.
The 9090 has also been upgraded to an extra stiff carbon composite outsole that offers superior torsional rigidity. This will result in a more explosive stride, maximizing energy transfer.
CCM has made an upgrade to the liner, with a new TotalDri Pro liner. The upgrade offers a more durable liner that wicks moisture and sweat away from the boot. Combine this with the vent hole, the two working together keep the boot lightweight and keep your feet feeling dry for longer.
The TriTech Flex Tongue was first introduced with the CCM JetSpeed FT1 skate and returns with the 9090. The base is a familiar 7mm white felt pro tongue and is supplemented with a medium density foam insert to disperse the tightening pressure of the laces.
One of the best parts about the Tacks 9090 has to be the foam and padding used in the skate. You will be getting a elite level stiffness and rigidity without hindering the comfort of the boot. CCM has included there Smooth Contour pads around the collar of the skate, accompanied with multi density memory foam for a customized fit.
A SpeedBlade holder provides 4mm of extra height from the ice to allow for up to 10% greater turning radius for a more aggressive angle of attack. The SpeedBlade Black steel provides a carbon oxide coating to cut the ice with less friction and provide a longer lasting sharpening as well as advanced performance.
