Nike Bauer’s New Goalie Stick Features TeXtreme Fabric

14 April 2008

Nike Bauer Hockey’s latest goal stick - the all-composite, patented One95 – is exceptionally lightweight and durable thanks to TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fibre fabric.

In collaboration with Oxeon, Nike Bauer has developed a unique design that features technically-advanced fabric for enhanced performance and aesthetics.

TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fibre fabric is available in extremely low areal weights, thus reducing the weight of the new One95 over that of a traditional stick. Currently used by elite athletes in the NHL, and just recently launched globally at the retail level, the One95 goalie stick by Nike Bauer and Oxeon is said to be the most technically advanced goal stick in the world.

“We were drawn to the material because of its weight” explained Adam Gans, Director of Reasearch & Development for Nike Bauer Hockey’s Stick Category, “The 160gsm TeXtreme material allowed us to take substantial weight out of the blade and paddle areas. This, in turn, gave us a better balanced stick. At the same time, the look has been extremely well received. The look really fits the geometry.”

The Nike Bauer One95 goalie stick exemplifies the benefits of TeXtreme Spread Tow fabric. According to Andreas Josefsson, Vice-President of Business Development at Oxeon AB, “By combining NBH’s great hockey stick expertise with TeXtreme® technology, we were able to produce a stick that really stands out from its competitors.”
