The Tacks Vector Premier shin guards are a Source Exclusive product that uses the TAcks AS 580 model with more advanced features from the AS-V series. The guards notably inherited some major upgrades from the highest-end models, including a Shot Block Shield, an abrasion-resistant lower pad, a comfort donut shape on the liner, and an ADPTFit padded Hyper X lock strap.
The shin cap has been made of tough PE plastic and engineered with an Anatomical Shield Design for max coverage and comfort. In addition, underneath the kneecap is a groove fit for your tape. To combat wear and tear that tends to occur near the bottom of the pad, CCM also implemented an abrasion-resistant leather piece at the bottom of the shell.
Knee Cap & Protection
The knee area uses a JDP kneecap design and a protective comfort donut on the inside to keep your knees secure while you play. These features both enhance protection and keep everything in place. The JDP design specifically disperses impact force away from the knee. The comfort donut on the inside liner provides supplemental space for your knee and keeps it further away from the impact point while simultaneously holding everything in place.
A major upgrade that the Vector Premier shin guards are equipped with is the Shot Block Shield that wraps snugly around the calf to absorb and disperse force on impact. There is often not enough padding here on most gear, although adding extra padding can sometimes hinder movement. On the Vector Premier, however, they have added a calf shield with a rounded anatomical shape to wrap seamlessly around your leg. Combined with the soft cushioning and liner on the inside, the shield can further mold nicely around your leg.
The inside ADPTFit sublimated removable liner has been cut and proportioned to fit along your leg, coinciding with the Anatomical Shield Design of the shin guards. With this design, the pads can fit snugly to your leg, increasing both comfort and protection. The donut cutout around the knee portion of the liner helps keep impact even further away from the knee.
A feature unique to the Vector Premier can be observed at the bottom of the liner. The tough nylon material in this area makes the liner more cut-resistant and durable against wear and tear, which could occur from constant contact with your skates.
The Vector Premier comes equipped with an ADPTFit length-adjustable calf strap, which is designed to offer max comfort and adjust to your build and shape. In addition, the pads come with a fully adjustable dual calf strap and a Hyper X lock strap for a perfect, snug fit around your shins.
The CCM Tacks Vector Premier Junior Hockey Shin Guards come in 11”, 12”, and 13” sizes.
