The CCM Tacks 9040 Ice Hockey Pants provide all-around great protection for the recreational or entry-level player. CCM used their JDP cap protection for the hip guards, which is designed to disperse impact energy away from the joint. The kidney and lower thigh guards have molded PE caps that provide solid coverage while low-density foams increase comfort and feel. The lower spine is well protected by a hard, closed-cell foam that is reinforced by a plastic insert and low-density foam.
The exterior is constructed with 400D nylon and polyester for a great mix of durability and breathability. Stretch gussets run down the center and down each leg to maximize stride mobility. The 9040's have a traditional style fit with a skate lace closure system, adjustable nylon belt, and zippered pant legs that offer more volume around the legs.
