CCM© Launches Pro Tacks™ Protective Series
New CCM© Protective Equipment Series Features Ultimate Balance between Protection, Lightweight and Customization
Montreal, Quebec, November 27, 2003...CCM©, the exclusive supplier of ‘white' jerseys to the National Hockey League, announces the launch of its newly created Pro Tacks™ series of protective equipment, designed for today's high performance players.
With input from premier NHL players like Joe Thornton and Vincent Lecavalier, the series was built on a classic styling platform. The Pro Tacks™ series encompasses the most modern of materials and design processes and the F-I-T-System© customized features provide not only a great fit, but the ability for each player to adjust their level of protection. The end result is the optimal combination of impact protection, lightweight design, and personal customization.
Each component of the new series includes the NHL Platinum shield designation, recognizing it as the authentic quality and construction used by today's NHL players.
CCM© also made sure to bring the same standard and quality features of the Pro Tacks™ protective series to the youth elite player. The newly created Pro Tacks™ youth protective series features the highest level of protection and performance in the same attractive package as the senior and junior sizes. The innovative Pro Tacks™ youth series also includes the NHL Platinum shield designation.
H2O Control™ Liner
The H2O ControlÔ liner, which is available in the Pro TacksÔ models, keeps the player cool and dry letting him focus on more important things like scoring that game-winning goal.
Moisture often reaches the foam padding, making the pads heavier in the later stages of those intense games. The H2O Control™ liner has a treated polyurethane backing behind the liner to stop the moisture from reaching the foam padding, keeping the pads light. The liner helps keep the body cool by wicking moisture away from the skin.
Pro Tacks™ Shoulder Pads
A high degree of impact protection in a lightweight package is the platform for the new Pro Tacks™ shoulder pads. A hybrid mid-size shoulder cap features an anatomical molded cap and high-density thermoformed foam construction. The custom F-I-T-System© options include: adjustable and removable throat padding, rib protection, stomach and lower
Pro Tacks™ Shin Guards
The Pro Tacks™ shin guards feature a newly designed anatomical shin component for a high degree of impact protection, complemented by the H2O Control™ lining that wicks the moisture away from the skin, keeping the body cool.

Pro Tacks™ Elbow Pads
