CCM Tacks AS-V Pro Intermediate Ice Hockey Skates With Step V-Steel Runner
New for 2022, CCM Hockey is revamping their ever-popular Tacks skate for the modern power skater. The CCM Tacks AS-V Pro Intermediate Ice Hockey Skates are built for strength and power while being extremely lightweight. This skate provides superior energy transfer and a closer fit, to support the most intense skating strides.
Starting with the fit, the Tacks AS-V Pro 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-V Pro Skates utilize CCM’s one-piece “Power” boot technology. This boot is for the modern power skater with intense strides. The Tacks AS-V Pro look to give explosiveness without restriction right from push off. Players will get more direct energy transfer and a closer to the foot fit to help keep them as fast and agile as possible on the ice. This one-piece boot is built with RFM composite carbon which is a premium carbon material that delivers the best energy transfer possible within the boot. It will be a 215 stiffness which is super lightweight and thermoformable for ultimate skating performance.
On the front of the AS-V Pro skate is CCM’s replaceable metatomic tongue with D30 foam. This multi-layer 7mm tongue will have an asymmetrical flex point for a better wrap and the D30 smart material insert will help to disperse the force of direct impacts, such as blocked shots, away from the sensitive ankle areas.
The interior of the Tacks AS-V Pro Skates are loaded with comfort and durability-enhancing features. The TotalDri Pro+ liner with Polygiene is an elite-performance moisture-wicking material that helps wick moisture away from the body, keeping them dry and light on their feet. The interior multi-density memory foam in the ankle areas wrap anatomically around players’ ankles keeping them comfortably locked into place. On the back of the skate, the Powerflex carbon tendon guard, gives improved range of motion for fuller strides and increased skating power. Lastly, for the footbed, CCM is using their Ortholite Ultralite footbed with heel grip. This will offer premium comfort and support using recycled EVA foams.
Moving to the bottom half of the Tacks AS-V Pro 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.
New for the CCM AS-V Pro skates this year is the choose your steel option. This allows the player to customize their skates with your choice of STEP Steel options. Simply choose the skate with your desired performance level and finish.
If you are an elite level skater looking for a powerful and responsive skate, that allows you to customize your performance level, look no further than the CCM Tacks AS-V Pro Intermediate Ice Hockey Skates.

The V-STEEL is the result of extensive research on the effects of blade side finish.
