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.

Boot Construction
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.

Tongue
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. 

Insoles
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.

Graphics
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.

Hockey Player Skate Sizing Guide

    Things to consider:
  • Age
  • Measurement from longest point of foot (cm)

When sizing for the correct size of a skate, we always advise taking the measurements below from a sitting position and not standing upright. Additional weight on your foot/feet can skew your result and misrepresent your foot size. The reason for this is that as you put your full weight on your feet, the arch of your foot will collapse and cause your foot to appear wider or longer than it actually is.

As well, please be aware that skate sizes and shoes sizing do not match exactly. As a general guideline, skate's size 1 - 1 ½ sizes smaller than shoes.

It is ideal for a player to have a tight, snug fit both in length and width as this will provide the best performance and durability. If a skate is too big you will feel your feet slide around and you will not get the full performance out of the skates and can also develop calcium deposits - Haglund’s Deformity or “Bauer Bumps” for lack of a better term although this issue doesn’t only occur with Bauer models.

An Ideal Fit
Stand with your skates laced and your heel snug in the heel cup. Your toes should just barely feather the end of the toe box. Bend forward into a skating stance. Your toes should pull back slightly from the toe box. Once heat fit, your foot should slide back into the foams of the skate and the length you felt in your skating stance will more-or-less become you standing size.

To obtain the measurement above you will need a soft tape measure and a pen. Start by placing the tape measure flat along the ground in a straight line. Sitting in a chair, place your foot down with the longest point of your foot (usually big toe, or second toe) in line with the edge of the tape measure. Make sure you keep your weight off of your foot. Take a pen and mark the tape measure where the edge of your heel ends. Record this length in cm. This measurement will correspond with the sizing charts in each brand below, if you do not see your exact measurement, select the size with the next size increment above your measurement (i.e. you measure 24.9 cm, you would select 25.1 cm or Size 6).

Sizing Children for Growth Room
If you are purchasing skates for your child, it is common and usually recommended to add some additional room in the skate to increase the last, we recommend no more than 1 full size. Feet stop growing around ages 15 – 15 ½, and from ages 14 - 15 ½ we would recommend adding only half (1/2) a size in length. Follow the same measurement instructions as above, once you obtain your true size move up ½ or 1 size.

***Sizing of skates is very preference based and these measurements will not guarantee a fit that is right for you. Please use these as general guidelines, for the most accurate fit we always recommend getting measured by a professional skate fitter at our store or your local pro shop.***
