The Tacks name is legendary among hockey skates. Boasting a rich history dating all the way back to 1905, we knew any new boot to bear the “Tackaberry” name would have a lot to live up to. Let us be the first to say, the CCM Tacks 6052 Junior delivers as a price point skate with elite level stiffness and performance!
The heart and soul of the Tacks 6052 Junior boot is CCM’s new Monofilament Reinforced ATTACKFRAME™. Comprised of stiff polymer fiber reinforcements in both the heel and eyelet facing, these attack fibers store and release energy as the player flexes forward; and when combined with CCM’s Formula T6 Core, the result is a boot with pro level support and explosive speed.
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 stiff Carbon/Glass Composite outsole which helps increase torsional rigidity and maximize energy transfer.
CCM’s commitments to fit, comfort, and attention to detail are easy to see in the new Junior Tacks 6052. The Contoured Fit profile provides a close fit in the heel and ankle with a medium width throughout the boot. A comfortable Duretex material lines the inside of the boot, with Clarino helping to smooth out high abrasion areas at the high ankle, as well as the top of the tendon guard. Duretex is smooth to the touch, and performs impressively in terms of both durability, as well as moisture wicking properties. Add a 7mm Felt Tongue with internal EPE foam and external, injected, lace bite protection, and you have a boot that provides lightweight performance with superior fit and comfort. The package is finished with CCM’s Air System footbed; a highly perforated design promotes proper ventilation and quick drying time.
