Floorball equipment manufacturer Unihoc has developed a light floorball stick reinforced by TeXtreme.
By utilising TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fabrics, Unihoc explains that the stick weighs just 183 grams and is the lightest stick ever introduced to the market. The two Swedish companies are heading towards success together.
”As the pioneer brand in floorball, Unihoc has always been aiming to bring the development of the sport and the equipment to new levels. Together with TeXtreme we have now been able to take a huge step in the field of low weight sticks, and at the same time offer the best performance qualities on the market”, says Johan Österman, R&D Manager at Renew Group Sweden.
“We are pleased to partner up with Unihoc a company who, like us, are market leaders in their field. Unihoc is known for their innovation and is persistently thriving to push development. They were the natural partner for us since we share those same values of constantly finding new and innovative solutions for our customers”, says Henrik Blycker, CEO of Oxeon.
The retail launch of the new Unihoc stick is set for June 2015.
