Bauer Hockey has introduced a hockey stick reinforced with TeXtreme’s carbon fiber fabrics.

The companies say that using carbon fiber can help reduce the weight and increase the durability and strength of the stick.

Bauer Hockey used the TeXtreme fabrics in all of the three of its product ranges to improve the mechanical performance and surface smoothness, which reduces the need for finishing compared to other carbon fiber materials. 

‘TeXtreme helps us maximize playability and integrate innovative designs and features we develop,’ saidCraig Desjardins, GM hockey for Bauer Hockey.  

The hockey  stick also incorporates eLASTech technology which reinforces the TeXtreme carbon fibers with micro nanotubes, helping to prevent cracks from slashes growing as well as extending the pop life of the stick. The blade integrates layer materials with carbon fiber to create a well-balanced and lightweight blade while maintaining dampening attributes.
