Bauer Hockey has introduced their latest stick, the NEXUS 1N, which is reinforced by TeXtreme.
According to Oxeon, manufacturers of TeXtreme, its carbon fibre fabrics help reduce the weight while, at the same time, increase the durability and strength of the stick.
Bauer Hockey uses the TeXtreme Technology in all of the three product families, NEXUS, VAPOR and SUPREME, to reduce weight, improve the mechanical performance and for the superior surface smoothness, which Oxeon explains reduces the need for finishing drastically compared to other carbon fibre materials.
“Through our partnership with TeXtreme we are able to incorporate a high performance material into our elite products in a way that helps us deliver to our consumers the premium products they expect from BAUER,” said Tyson Teplitsky, Global Brand Manager for Bauer Hockey. “TeXtreme helps us maximise playability and integrate innovative designs and features we develop.” The 1N is the most advanced NEXUS stick and is designed with a unique sweet spot which helps the player to shot with precision. In addition to TeXtreme, another feature of the stick is eLASTech Technology which reinforces the TeXtremecarbon fibres with micro nanotubes, helping to prevent cracks from slashes growing as well as extending the pop life of the stick.
