The CCM Super Tacks AS1 Shin Pad is the latest and greatest in CCM's protective equipment. Like its predecessors, the AS1 focuses on maximum coverage and protection -- but here's a look at what's new and improved.
The AS1 features a JDP knee cap with D30 Smart Foam behind the cap. Both of these features do a fantastic job at spreading out the force of impact.
The calf guard also features an extensive amount of protection, this time using a closed-cell, high-density foam, and D30 foam. This ensures that whether it's a stick or a puck, the back of your calf will always be protected.
This year's shin pad includes two points of strapping. The first is a one-inch knee strap that wraps around the back of the calf. The second point is a three-inch, adjustable calf strap, that allows the user to shorten or lengthen the strap.
To finish it off, the insider liner features a soft, breathable microfiber that helps wick away sweat.
