CCM Hockey and Sigmatex have formed a partnership on CCM’s line of premium hockey sticks for 2017.

Sigmatex explains that the upcoming product line will incorporate its sigmaST fabric, and is driven by weight reduction and strength objectives. This collaboration reinforces CCM’s commitment to ongoing research and development within the hockey industry.

Sigmatex adds that the range utilises its sigmaST fabric which is 20% lighter than traditional carbon fibre fabrics and has an excellent strength to weight ratio. This technology is crucial to sporting applications, particularly in the hockey industry that demands a light weight stick which maintains durability and has a high impact tolerance. With its sleek checkerboard finish, sigmaST gives the hockey sticks a unique shelf appeal.

“Using sigmaST has empowered us to produce a lighter stick which still maintains the overall strength and performance required. We chose to work with Sigmatex because of their proven capability in the sports & leisure sector to create innovative composite solutions. We have been able to build hockey sticks which outperform their predecessors not just from a weight perspective, but also in terms of strength and durability,” says Catherine Ward, Product Manager.

The sticks will be distributed globally and exploited in professional leagues across the world including the National, American, Canadian and Swedish hockey leagues.
