The heart and soul of the Tacks 4052 boot is CCM’s new Internally Supported ATTACKFRAME™. Comprised of internal reinforcements in both the heel and eyelet facing, these reinforcements store and release energy as the player flexes forward; and when combined with CCM’s Formula T4 Core, the result is a responsive boot with great acceleration.
The new SpeedBlade 4.0 Holder design provides an additional four millimeters of height (when compared to the older E-Pro holder), which allows for a greater angle of attack and more aggressive turns. Complementing the SpeedBlade 4.0 Holder is CCM’s SpeedBlade Stainless steel runner, which provides a long lasting edge for long term performance. The holders are then riveted to a Vented Fiber Nylon Composite Outsole which helps increase torsional rigidity and maximize energy transfer.
CCM’s commitments to fit and comfort are easily seen in the new Tacks 4052 skate. The Contoured Fit profile provides a close fit in the heel and ankle with a medium width throughout the boot. A quick drying, heavy duty, Microfiber material lines the inside of the boot, which ensures a comfortable fit along with great durability. Add a 7mm Felt Tongue with EVA foam and you have a boot that provides lightweight performance with great fit and comfort. The package is finished with CCM’s Fit System footbed for added comfort and support.
