The CCM Tacks AS-V Pro Shin Guard is a shot-blockers dream, providing the very best protection and coverage to heavy shots, nasty slashes, and all other impacts. One of the key areas, the kneecap, combines CCM’s pro-level JDP design to disperse impact force away from the joint while D3O Foam helps absorb impact energy taken directly to the knee.
This exclusive D3O Foam is also used in the calf guard behind the exposed molded plastic construction and on the lower shin shell to cover all key impact areas. With compression molded HD foam on the knee wing and thigh guard, the AS-V Pro is built top to bottom with a 39.4% protection improvement over the Super Tacks AS1 Shin Guard!
Unique to the AS-V Pro Shin Guard is the AdaptFit design in two key areas. The first is the length-adjustable calf strap, helping players dial in their fit no matter their calf size. The second is a height-adjustable liner, providing a custom fit based on whether a player wears their shin guard over or under the skate tongue. Players can raise the lower portion of the liner when worn over the skate tongue, or lower the liner when wearing the shin guard underneath the skate tongue. This not only improves comfort but eliminates gaps in protection!
