New for the Fall 2017 season is CCMs Ribcor line of sticks offering even more performance features than ever before. The Ribcor Pro PMT has a low kick point for easy loading with a quick and surprising release. Included in the design of the Ribcor Pro PMT, the optimized vertical flex profile allows players to move the puck into the ideal shooting position with greater ease. Popmatrix technology has been added to the Ribcor Pro PMT, offering a new geometry for a smooth transition area, allowing the stick to maximize bending and efficiently transfer the energy stored. The Ascent Blade on this stick has an optimized stiffness profile that goes from softer in the heel to extra stiff at the toe for a great combination of feel and quick release. For added strength and durability on the shaft and blade, CCM has implemented the use of C6 Weave technology.
