The all-new CCM Ultra Tacks protective line redefines the standards in protection with the cutting-edge D3O® foam technology. Engineered to react to fluctuating intensities from opponent hits to flying pucks, this trailblazing smart foam keeps its soft consistency to absorb low impacts and instantly hardens at higher-intensity impacts to help protect against big hits.
WHAT IS D3O®?
D3O® is a patented technology used to make a soft, flexible “smart material” with high-rated shock-absorbing properties. In Mad Scientist terms, D3O® has a unique molecular structure.
The composition of the material’s molecules continuously flows freely, allowing the material to remain soft and flexible, then, on impact, they lock together to absorb and dissipate the impact energy while reducing the transmitted force. The molecules instantly return to their flexible state following impact.
The better the protection, the better we can protect both the player dishing out a hit and the player receiving it.
