The 2019 CCM Tacks 9040 protective gear is slated for release May 24 (pre-orders start April 26) but Pure Hockey gives you a first look at it today. Beginner or casual hockey players will love the combination of performance, comfort, and adjustability in the Tacks 9040 protective gear—and all at a low price point.
CCM Tacks 9040 Hockey Gloves
CCM Tacks 9040 hockey gloves offer a range of protective and comfort features perfect for the player who enjoys mixing it up with his buddies, but who isn’t going to push his equipment to its performance limits.
The Tacks 9040 gloves offer an anatomical fit that’s comfortably snug in the backhand and open in the one-piece cuff for some nice freedom of movement. The gloves’ high-quality lightweight polyester construction is durable enough for plenty of on-ice action, and features PE foam and PE inserts in the backhand and finger to keep the player’s hands safe. The thumb also includes PE material for protection, while the reinforced Nash palm provides great stick feel and resists premature palm wear.
CCM Tacks 9040 Hockey Shoulder Pads
The slick-looking Tacks 9040 shoulder pads have an anatomical, molded front base jacket with molded PE foam construction for good protection and a super lightweight fit and feel. In fact, CCM uses the same highly durable and protective PE foam in the JDP shoulder caps to help disperse impact energy, in the torso, spine, and more molded PE in the sternum, giving the entry-level player good, lightweight protection throughout the entire pads. And the adjustable bicep on the Tacks 9040 shoulder pads allows the player to enjoy just the right fit.
CCM Tacks 9040 Elbow Pads
The new Tacks 9040 elbow pads offer a nice level of protection, comfort, and adjustability, thanks to their stretch forearm and bicep straps, and a webbing forearm strap that keeps the pad in place for consistent protection and comfort.
The bicep features molded PE inserts with extended coverage for a little additional protection, and CCM has strategically placed a molded PE guard in the forearm so the protective material is situated where you really need it.
The high-performing JDP elbow cap provides a great level of protection at this key point of vulnerability, with a lightweight design that disperses the force of impacts away from the elbow joint.
CCM Tacks 9040 Shin Guards
This year’s Tacks 9040 shin guards attach with a wrap lock and calf strapping system that’s very comfortable and easily adjustable for ideal placement to protect the player. The calf guard features an anatomical design with extended calf protection to protect the rear of the player’s leg, while the JDP molded knee cap provides more high-level impact protection at the joint.
Players will appreciate the shin guard’s removable comfort liner, helping them to obtain a personalized fit for just the right level of comfort and protection.
CCM Tacks 9040 Hockey Pants
CCM constructs its new senior Tacks 9040 hockey pants with 400D nylon and polyester panels for enhanced durability, while the junior pants are made with lightweight 210D and 400D nylon and polyester panels.
The JDP hip cap is reinforced with PE foam so it not only disperses impact energy, but also provides an additional layer of comfort and protection.
The kidney features a molded PE cap for reliable protection and the fixed, molded spine protector provides a good level of protection for the lower back. The molded PE thigh and kidney caps round out the protection in these high-performing but very affordable hockey pants.
The 2019 CCM Tacks 9040 protective gear offers quality features and technology for the price. Entry-level players will appreciate the protection and comfort features that elevate the 9040 protective gear to the top of this price-point class, sure to make them a popular offering this year.
