Skate CCM Tacks AS-570 Senior Ice Hockey
CCM Hockey is revamping their ever-popular Tacks skate for the modern power skater. The CCM Tacks AS 570 Senior Ice Hockey Skates are built for strength and power while being lightweight. This skate provides more direct energy transfer and a closer fit to support the most intense skating strides.
Starting with the fit, the Tacks AS 570 Skates feature a close to the foot anatomical fit that players are accustomed to with the Tacks line. This form-fitting, 360-degree fit around the forefoot, heel, and ankle helps eliminate negative space within the boot, allowing for more efficient energy transfer meaning improved speed and agility.
Staying with the boot, the Tacks AS 570 Skates utilize CCM’s one-piece boot technology. This boot will help players get more direct energy transfer and a closer fit for the most powerful strides possible. The Tacks AS 570 look to give explosiveness right from push off. It will be a 150 stiffness which is a solid core for great skating performance.
On the front of the AS 570 skate is CCM’s replaceable asymmetrical tongue. This 7mm tongue will have reinforced layers for increased comfort and protection.
The interior of the Tacks AS 570 Skates will have some comfort and durability-enhancing features. The HD microfiber liner is a high resistance moisture-wicking material that helps wick moisture away from the body, keeping them dry and light on their feet. Lastly, for the footbed, CCM is using their Ortholite footbed. This will offer premium comfort and support using recycled EVA foams.
Moving to the bottom half of the Tacks AS 570 Skates, CCM utilizes their popular SpeedBlade XS holder. These holders were developed as a quick and easy way for players to replace runners on the fly, while ensuring a consistent feel every time. The holders utilize a positive-lock mechanism that tightly secures the runners to the holder to prevent the blade from loosening during gameplay.
Partnered with the SpeedBlade XS holder are the XS Stainless Steel runners. These runners provide a long-lasting edge for long-term performance.
If you are a competitive level skater looking for a skate that gives you more direct energy transfer and response, look no further than the CCM Tacks AS 570 Senior Ice Hockey Skates.
When you receive your skates, try them on and push your foot forward so that your toes (while flat) barely glance the toe cap. Bend your knee forward and look behind the heel of your foot down the skate. If you can fit a finger behind the heel easily, the skates are too big. A fingertip should be securely wedged between the heel of your foot and the back side of the skate.
While all players might have their own preference for fit, hockey skates should be 1 ½ sizes down from your shoe size. For most players this will be close to the proper fit. For example, if you are a U.S. Men’s shoe size 9, you would want to go with a skate size 7.5.
