The highly-anticipated update to CCM’s Tacks line is finally here. The AS-570 is a mid-level power skate that is engineered for players who prefer taking more powerful strides. This skate offers a more competitive performance for higher-level recreational or semi-competitive skaters. Key features include the one-piece boot, asymmetrical tongue, and molded Ortholite footbed.
The Tacks line is designed to fit closer and be stiffer compared to other CCM lines. These skates boast a stiffness rating of 150, which is considered mid-level stiffness for this type of skate. This means that the skate can support strong strides while also being a bit easier to break in and flex, making it suitable for skaters who are not quite ready for stiffer skates or who prefer a slightly softer boot.
