The CCM Tacks 9080 Ice Pants offer players of all levels high-end protection at an affordable price. D30 LITE reinforces two major areas that take on high and low volume impacts, the spine and hip. The hip caps are strategically designed with JDP construction that disperses impact energy away from the hip while D30 LITE absorbs the energy. The re-designed floating spine guard offers a ton of coverage and protection to the lower back and moves with the player to keep protection in place. D30 LITE can be found sandwiched in-between an injected plastic insert and external HD closed-cell foam, while plush medium-density foam rests against the lower spine for incredible comfort.
