INXIDE has collaborated with Eventsport and Swedish elite players to develop the next generation of bandy sticks, the RELEASE, reinforced with TeXtreme.
”Through our partnership with TeXtreme we were able to integrate their high performance material into our new RELEASE stick," says Anders Holmkvist R&D Manager at INXIDE. "By adding TeXtreme, we reduced the weight while optimising the correct dampening, balance and flex properties.”
“Since the beginning of the project, we knew that we wanted to work with TeXtreme," he adds. "We have seen the difference TeXtreme Technology has made in ice hockey sticks and floorball sticks which both utilise the unique qualities of TeXtreme.”
“We’re proud of how this next generation of sticks turned out," reports Jens Öberg, CEO, Eventsport. "Our partnership with INXIDE and TeXtreme has made it possible to move from the traditional wooden stick to a composite stick, which is quite new in bandy. It will not only help the players' performance on the ice, it will also reduce the amount of sticks used during a season.”
TeXtreme spread tow carbon reinforcements help brands which are seeking to reduce weight and improve mechanical properties of their products.
“TeXtreme is becoming the new standard carbon fibre reinforcement for high-end applications where low weight and performance is key," states Henrik Blycker, CEO of Oxeon, manufacturer of TeXtreme. "We’re proud to be a part of and help products to be at the forefront of innovation.”
The RELEASE stick will be available in July.
