The new CCM Ultra Tacks hockey skate maximizes your energy for striding and attacking the net.
The all-new 2016 CCM Ultra Tacks ice hockey skate launches this summer at your local Source For Sports hockey store and is packed full with high end features that you've come to love from the Tacks skate family. CCM Hockey's Attackframe 2 Technology is a two-piece, stiff carbon composite material in the boot frame providing a molded fit for your foot to generate excellent foot-to skate contact providing you a tight yet comfortable fit giving you a great stride for dangling past opponents. CCM Hockey skates are renowned for their heel lock, and the Ultra Tacks ice hockey skate does not disappoint; all of your energy will be maximized for striding and attacking the net.

Multi-density memory foam ergonomically wraps the forefoot and is part of the heat moldable core, which will assure a custom fit for ultimate performance. The three layers of 7 mm felt in the Tritech Pro Felt tongue and an injected HDPE foam in the metatarsal guard of the CCM Ultra Tacks hockey skate protects you from lace bite, slashes and the puck in general. A dense, contoured pad around the collar of the boot keeps your foot and ankle comfortable yet secure.
The TotalDri liner is a high performance wicking material keeping your feet dry and reduces the weight of the skate keeping you energized and light on your feet. The abrasion patches are resistant to wear and tear, prolonging the life and durability of the Ultra Tacks skate. The Air System Footbed provides greater contact area between your foot and the skate, as well as incredible support overall. All to say, more contact area with your foot to the skate increases your energy transfer providing a stronger stride. When the foot and skate become “one”, it will show in your performance turning and attack angle.
The increased attack angle of the Speedblade 4.0 holder on the CCM Ultra Tacks hockey skate means that you can not only get to the puck faster, chase down your opponent quicker, but cornering will be tight and quick too. This skate will allow you to bite your turn hard without your skate giving out from underneath you, giving you confidence as you pursue whatever your chasing. The high performance Speedblade Black has an oxide treatment for long edge life and corrosion resistance keeping your blade nice and sharp for a longer period of time, and staying sleek.'
