Published

on


CCM Hockey and Carbon are revolutionizing the design of hockey helmets, which have remained largely unchanged for half a century. Manufactured with Carbon Digital Light Synthesis (Carbon DLS), CCM Hockeys Super Tacks X with NEST Tech is the world’s first hockey helmet with NEST (Next Evolution Sense Technology): a digitally printed liner with grid texture that provides superior breathability, premium comfort, and elite protection. This next-generation helmet is adapted to an athlete’s head and with its unique grille design allows fine-tuning of energy absorption and dissipation to protect players.

At Carbon, we are committed to empowering customers to bring innovative products to market that drive industries forward, said Carbon CEO Ellen Kullman. We were delighted to partner with CCM Hockey, a leading hockey equipment manufacturer for over a century, to produce a revolutionary hockey that will change the game.

Super Tacks X with NEST Tech is a revolutionary helmet lining technology that provides our athletes with unparalleled breathability, superior fit, enhanced comfort and elite protection, says Jeff Dalzell Vice President of Product Creation, CCM Hockey. We were delighted to partner with Carbon to bring unprecedented innovation to the hockey industry with this new helmet.

The Super Tacks X with NEST Tech liner is produced using Carbon Design Engine software, which automatically generates an optimized grid structure based on the desired performance criteria and weight. This grid structure facilitates the absorption and dissipation of energy by aligning internal cushioning struts against the direction of impact that hockey players experience during play. With more than 130,000 individual struts, the grid is built so that each strut is specially adjusted at every point of the helmet. Increases or decreases in the stiffness of the grid structure are made possible by fine adjustments to the thickness of each strut, allowing the grid to absorb and disperse energy from various impacts.

The custom helmet will be available to all NHL players for the 2021 season. During the 2020 NHL season, three professional players played in this helmet, including Austin Matthews (Toronto Maple Leafs), John Tavares (Toronto Maple Leafs) and Seth Jones (Columbus Blue Jackets).

Jones wore the helmet during Columbus’s first-round playoff game against Tampa Bay, which went to five extra innings. The 25-year-old set an NHL playoff record for the most minutes played in a single game, 65 minutes and six seconds.

CCM will release a 3D-printed consumer retail helmet in Spring 2021, utilizing some of the same cutting-edge technology that is made available to professional athletes.
