The CCM Tacks AS3 Pro Skates take explosiveness, customization and durability to a whole new level for the players looking for ultimate performance. The second-gen, one-piece boot continues to lead two-piece boots by remaining lighter, more efficient at transferring energy and providing an incredible out-of-the-box fit.
Playing a key role in making the AS3 Pro the most powerful and durable CCM boot ever, is the new carbon layering system. In order to ensure comfort wasn't compromised, they used 67% thicker ankle pads and even extended foam further into the forefoot area. Up top, the plush collar wraps help prevent ankle irritation which is key for those on the ice four times or more a week.
While the pro-inspired, Metatomic Tongue offers top-notch protection and comfort for the foot, it is now removable too. With the option of three separate XS Replacement Tongues with varying levels of thicknesses and foams, players can now dial in fit and feel like no skate before it!
Below the boot, the CCM Super Tacks AS3 Pro features their quick-release XS Holder. Next time the runner needs to be removed, the tool-less dial system quickly and securely allows them to be replaced in seconds. Currently in the holder is the XS1 Black Runner that features extra-height for better sharpening life and custom radius options, while the black oxide coating helps them hold an edge longer!

KEY TECHNOLOGIES MonoFrame One-Piece Boot
By incorporating the outsole directly into the boot, MonoFrame fits better and makes you faster, period. There are significantly fewer materials required (like glue, nails, etc.) which reduces weight and improves the connection between you and the ice. Lastly, the anatomical fit is second to none since the boot completely wraps around the foot instead of just the sides. You can learn even more here.
Pro Carbon Composite Composite
With an enlarged and a stiffer pattern, the AS3 Pro creates 10% more energy transfer than the AS1. Key movements like quick starts and tight turns feel more responsive plus the skate is more durable over time too!
SpeedBlade XS Tongue System
An easy and secure clip system gives you the ability to use one of three aftermarket CCM tongues. Slim is the lightest and slimmest, which reduces weight and increases internal volume. Regular is the most similar to the stock tongue but comes with D3O Smart Foam for top-tier protection. Extra is thickest and most protective, which also reduces internal volume.
SpeedBlade XS Holder
This quick-releasing system keeps you on the ice and off the bench since swapping out runners is easier than ever. The mechanical dial ensures the runners won't pop out when taking a big shot to the holder either. Learn even more by watching our video here!
