The highly anticipated update to CCM’s Tacks line is finally here. Engineered for developing more powerful strides, the AS-560 is a recreational-level power skate that offers everything you need to get on the ice and start skating. The skate includes an HD microfibre liner and lace bite protection on the tongue.
Skate Fit & Stiffness Profile
The Tacks line is designed to support acceleration and larger strides. The AS-560 skates have a 125 stiffness rating, which is a bit more flexible than standard Tacks skates to make them easier for developing skaters to start skating in. These are perfect if you play primarily recreational hockey or if you’re not quite ready for stiffer skates. These skates are only available in Regular fit.
The boot uses a 3D-injected construction, which is an ergonomic boot-shaping system that focuses on improving comfort and durability in the shell. The boot has been textured to further enhance that durability.
Liner & Internal Padding
CCM uses an HD microfibre liner in the AS-560 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.
The skate uses a 7mm felt tongue for comfort and coverage. It also includes an embossed, foam lace bite protection reinforcement around the centre for additional protection against both impact and lace bite.
The insole on the AS-560 IS CCM’s signature footbed, which is both lightweight and very comfortable.
Steel Runner, Holder & Blade Profile
CCM constructed the AS-560 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.
One of the most noticeable updates made to the Tacks series was the amended outer design and graphics. CCM rolls out new colours and text logos to represent a fresh start to the line in 2022. In addition to the modern, techy styles on the side of the boot, you’ll also notice the new gold graphics to replace the old yellow, as well as the clean “Tacks” and “AS-560” redesigned logos all throughout.
