The highly anticipated update to the CCM’s Tacks line is finally here. Ideal for the recreational player who wants to step on the ice right on day one, the AS-550 includes an HD microfibre liner, a 3D-injected boot construction, and a 115 stiffness rating.
Skate Fit & Stiffness Profile
The AS-550 skate has a 115 stiffness rating, which is a much more flexible boot compared to higher-end Tacks skates. Flexible boots are best for players who don’t play hockey as often, as well as those who are just learning how to skate and play the game. This skate will be much easier to break in and skate in for developing players. These skates are only available in Regular fit.
The boot on the Youth skate uses injected technology coupled with mesh skin. This formation softens the boot a bit more and makes it much more comfortable for small, developing feet, in addition to making the boot a bit more durable.
Liner & Internal Padding
CCM uses an HD microfibre liner in the AS-550 to keep the skates feeling close while eliminating as much potential discomfort as possible. The microfibre liner helps wick away moisture and odour and is highly resistant to wear and tear.
Similar to higher-end adult skates, the tongue on this skate is 7mm and asymmetrical for more flexibility and comfort while skating. In the Youth skate, the eyelets and tendon guard are designed specifically to help both the player and person tying their skates. The Easy-Tie Eyelets are at the top of the skate and use a simple hook eyelet system to make the skate tying process much easier.
The footbed on the Youth variation contains a Kid Sizing zone, which is designed specifically to mold to young feet. The insoles provide support, comfort, and an accurate measurement of where their feet should be sitting.
Steel Runner, Holder & Blade Profile
CCM constructed the AS-550 with their Speedblade holder and stainless steel blade. The holder has been modified to sit more elevated to help enhance stride with a more powerful attack angle. Please note that the steel in this skate is non-replaceable.
The Youth variation of this skate has similar graphics to higher-end adult skates in the new Tacks line. They have a mainly black and gold colouration with cybernetic designs and additional grey and gold accents.
