The CCM Tacks 9080 hockey shin pad picks up where the previous Tacks model left off. The 9080 features a new comfort liner, strapping system and new shin cap design while still maintaining some of its most popular features like the JDP knee cap and D3O Smart Material.
The pro level JDP knee cap is designed to disperse the force of impact away from the knee. D3O Smart Material works in conjunction to further absorb shock from impacts.
A new adjustable, exposed high-density foam thigh protector ensures your pants don’t end up getting caught up mid stride while also providing complete coverage.
Pro strength anatomical shin cap design has a mid-volume shape. New tape groove located at the top of the shin cap designed to lock shin pad tape in the optimal position.
The 9080 Tacks shin guard use of mid density foam around the knee cut-out “donut” area prevents the foam from over compressing and saving your knee from bottoming out on big impacts.
The liner is asymmetrical and has another mid density insert along the inner shin channel, resulting in a locked in fit that also steps up to protect when blocking heavy shots. The liner is removable for quicker drying and can be washed.
New customizable adjustment strap system for the lower calf accommodates pretty much any size calf. The upper lock strap has a nice comfort liner where it touches the back of your knee but is designed to securely lock in the fit.
The CCM 9080’s redesigned calf protector features premium foam and PE inserts combined with D3O for superior shot blocking and slash protection.

Player Shin Guard Sizing
When sizing a shin pad, you must determine first if you will wear the shin pad over top of the skate tongue, or if the skate tongue will sit in front of shin pad and “flop” forward. This will determined the length of the shin pad you will want.
Your knee should fit directly into the center of the kneecap, which is usually lined and padded to help direct it and provide comfort. Once the pad is strapped to your leg, it should be secure and snug and should NOT be able to twist rotate or slide freely.
