New for 2022 from CCM is the updated Tacks protective line. The Tacks AS-V shoulder pads have been upgraded with slick new gold graphics and many features also available on the AS-V Pro, including D3O foam, ADPTFit, Vent-Tech, and an Anatomical Shield Design. The AS-V offers premium protection with the traditional Tacks fit.
Shoulder Caps & Protection
The JDP-injected caps use D3O Lite foam on the inside to disperse force away from the impact point, effectively protecting your shoulders from harm. CCM continues to use D3O foam in their protectives, including in the AS-V gear. D3O foam has amazing cushioning and absorption properties, so much so that it’s even used in military equipment. In addition, the outer side is covered on the front with exposed SD foam for increased coverage.
The Tacks AS-V shoulder pads are equipped with multiple layers of protection over the torso and sternum. The Vent-Tech floating sternum provides both aeration and a high degree of coverage. The underlayer of the sternum is made of mesh for good breathability, and the middle layers incorporate both molded HD foam and D3O Smart Material. The front is covered with a molded MD EVA foam, Flexmotion base jacket with elite rib protection designed to contour around your torso.
The spine is protected from impact force using the same plastic shields found in the sternum area. The Vent-Tech construction permits good airflow, so your back can keep cool and comfortable while you play.
The biceps on the AS-V Pro can be adjusted in both length and width, allowing you to customize your fit for wherever you need bicep protection with its ADPTFit straps. Protective features in this area include an injected plastic guard and a foam bicep cushion.
The AS-V Pro uses a sublimated liner and soft-feel front stretch panels for quality comfort and protection. The liners have been treated with an antimicrobial agent to keep you cool and dry, and the stretch feel panels have been engineered to move with you, ensuring that you are covered for the whole game.
Abdominal Protection Piece
The AS-V Pro does come with a removable and adjustable abdominal protection piece, attached with velcro. This piece uses HD foam, as well as Vent-Tech technology to keep you cool. The Velcro adjustability covers a wide range, letting you decide how much of the pad you want to use.
The Tacks AS-V Pro Senior Shoulder Pads come in Small, Medium, Large, and XLarge sizes.
