The CCM RIBCOR 40K Grip Composite Stick leaves a path of destruction behind it and one can only feel sorry for the obstacles’ in front of it. The heightened technology in the improved RIBCOR now made by CCM, will blow away your mind and your opponent. The improved Ribbed Shaft is equipped a Pre-Loaded Power Transfer and a Power Taper Ratio that adds even more power than you thought you could ever have. In addition, the fibers that construct this beauty, are permanently in tension with each other to help increase power transfer from your hands directly to the puck. Don't lower your standards for medium power, snipe the top bar with a high load and low kick for a quick, accurate natural release.
The RIBCOR 40K also features Technora Reinforcement, which has greatly increases the durability and the life of the stick, allowing you to keep this stick by your side for seasons to come.
Another enhanced feature is the SXX2 blade. Constructed differently than the original RIBCOR, the 40K focuses solely on the “last 3 inches.” Ultimately, the SXX2 blade reduces vibrations throughout the stick when making hard passes, shots, or when defending a one-on-one. This technology will make your hands feel softer than your teddy bear Snuggles. The heel of the SXX2 Blade is stiff and only continues to get stiffer until it reaches the very end of the toe. This will provide you with an accurate shot every time as the puck will respond to your direction better than ever. This also makes it 5% lighter than the average blade.
This is not just your average stick; this is your sword in the stone. Take hold and rule the ice kingdom.
This is what the experts at CCM have to say
This stick was developed to provide players with great feel for the puck, but also with a quick release. The low kick point is very easy to load since the stick does most of the work. The geometry allows for fibers to be in tension at all times, which translates in easy loading. This is great for players who are looking to surprise goalies and get the puck off quickly.
Also, the blade has a unique design. The bridges that are inside the blade point upwards at the toe, to give it an extra stiffness in that area. This allows the toe to be extra stiff, which is crucial to get the puck off quickly.
Not only does it have great pop and a unique blade structure, it is also reinforced with Technora, which is a material that has the same protective properties as Kevlar, but better bending properties. Combine all these great features, and what you get is a very durable and performant stick.
