      CCM's New Super Tacks AS3 Pro Hockey Skates

      We're getting our first look at the all new CCM Super Tacks AS3 Pro skates here at United Sport & Cycle and, if we weren't excited enough for the return of hockey before, we sure are now!

      Available Friday, June 26th—the same day as the 2020 NHL Draft Lottery—the AS3 marks a new era in hockey skate engineering and performance.

      Will projected #1 overall pick, Alexis Lafreniere, endorse CCM and rock the AS3 Pro skate, come his NHL debut next season? We'd bet on it! Here's why...

      The AS3 Pro hockey skate connects skater, to ice, like never before

      CCM is famous for their monocomp, one piece boots, which don't have an outsole. This benefits the skater in a number of ways:

      • Connects the skater even closer to the blade
      • Vastly improves power transfer to the ice, with no outsole to absorb energy
      • Removes 20g of nails and 30g of glue, making the skate dramatically lighter-weight
      • Boasts a completely seamless boot, shaped 360 degrees around the foot, with no negative space

      With such dramatic advancements in hockey skate technology, throughout the CCM line, it's no wonder why so many NHL superstars have turned to the brand over past few hockey seasons.

      So, what's the new technology?

      So far, we've covered what has made CCM the skate-brand-of-choice for NHL stars like Connor McDavid, Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin. But, what's new and exciting about the Super Tacks AS3 Pro?

      Well, it turns out there's good reason why our hockey experts at United Sport & Cycle have been so excited about this skate! First of all, AS3 Pro features the brand new Speedblade XS1 holder and STEP Blacksteel blades.

      Originally exclusive to pro-level skates, the Speedblade XS1 holder is more durable than ever and much faster to switch out blades on-the-fly.

      The STEP Blacksteel blades are coated with a layer of carbon nanoparticles and create an incredibly fine, hard edge. We like to think of them like an ultra-high-quality chef's knife which, when sharpened, will produce absolutely no burrs on it's edge. Additionally, the blade's black mirror finish is achieved by meticulous polishing and enhances its gliding performance.  

      The blade is also 2mm taller than an average skate blade, allowing the blade to both last longer and giving the athlete the ability to make tighter, faster turns without losing an edge.

      Want even more new features?

      Ask and you shall receive, as the fit of the AS3 Pro is more customizable than ever before, with its all-new XS Tongue, allowing the skater to select between a 4mm, 7mm, or 10mm tongue thickness. This allows for an increased, or decreased boot volume, perfect for any foot and ankle size.

      But it gets better... you can even customize your tongue tab to include any number of your choosing.

      What is D3O?

      D3O, available in the tongue of the AS3 Pro, provides 20% more thickness than a regular tongue, maximizing the protection of the boot.

      Turns out, stick technology has advanced, too. Not to mention the rigorous training the modern-day athlete goes through, making players stronger and shots even harder. We will take the extra protection absolutely anywhere and everywhere we can get it and D3O delivers on just that.

      *Tongue selection is available through custom orders only

      How do I know which tongue is right for me?

      Looking for maximum protection in your boot and not worried about losing space in front of the ankle? We'd recommend either the 7mm, or 10mm XS Tongue, which both include D3O protection.

      Looking for the lightest skate possible, or have a thicker ankle? The "slim" XS Tongue is thinner, lighter and allows for more volume in the boot.

      Still not sure? Visit one of our hockey experts in store, at United Sport & Cycle, 7620 Gateway Blvd. NW.

      Final Thoughts on the new CCM Super Tacks AS3 Pro hockey skates

      For players needing a wider, pro-quality boot, look no further than the Super Tacks AS3 Pro.

      There have already been a bunch of NHL players spotted playing with the AS3 Pro skate, prior to the NHL season being suspended due to Covid-19, including Auston Matthews, John Tavares, and Alex Ovechkin. Now that they are available to the public, too, we can see the popularity of this skate absolutely exploding.

      Though we haven't had the chance to demo the skates ourselves due to arenas being closed during the pandemic, we can tell just from trying them on in our store, that they are something special.

      We’ve only got a limited quantity of these, so come and get yours at our Main Store in Edmonton (at 7620 Gateway Blvd NW), or online at UnitedSport.ca, before they’re all gone!
