The CCM Tacks 9080 Hockey Elbow pad features the same great CCM fit, with more added flex in the bicep and a new adjustable strapping system.
The Tacks 9080 pro level JDP elbow cap is designed to disperse the force of impact away from the elbow. D3O Smart Material works in conjunction to further absorb shock from impacts.
The 9080 Elbow Pads feature an articulated bicep protector providing greater range of mobility and extension. The new exposed foams used in the lower extension are slightly softer which allows the elbow pad to maintain a higher range of motion than the previous Tacks model.
Premium exposed high-density foam combined with D3O Smart Material to protect against heavy duty slashes.
The new adjustable length forearm strap on the CCM 9080 elbow is a great design and will accommodate a wider range of forearm fits. The middle strap is a reinforced lock strap with a nice comfortable feel while there is a traditional elastic strap for the top strap.

Hockey Elbow Pads Sizing Information
When fitting or trying on elbow pads, there are a few things to look at to make sure you have a proper fit. To start, make sure your elbow is placed in the center of cup or designated area and fasten the elbow pad using the straps. You will want to make sure that elbow pad is snug and secure and will not slip off the elbow joint. As well, move your arms around with each pad on, range of motion is key, and you will feel mobility differences in each product. If the elbow pad is too big it will shift and slide around on your arm. If it is too small your elbow will feel like it is sitting above the pad.
Compare your height, weight and age to the charts provided to find your best fit. As well, put on your shoulder pad and gloves and have someone measure the space/gap in between (in inches) to determine the proper sizing.
