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.
