CCM Super Tacks AS1 Shin Pad Review

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.
