With the design of the RibCor Team shaft, CCM is looking to utilize every inch of the stick possible with their E-Geometry shaft. This advanced ergonomic construction was designed by the CCM Performance Lab in collaboration with some of the best hockey players in the world. Starting at the top of the shaft, you will find a rounded concave design that allows for advanced comfort and control. As you move down to the mid-shaft, you find a rounded convex back side combined with a square-cornered concave front, which maximizes dexterity and control. All the way down at the low-shaft taper, the RibCor Team features a concave front side for quick-release, and rounded concave back side to maximize torsional stiffness, offering improved accuracy and control. No matter what part of the shaft you look at, CCM has engineered the Ribcor Team to take advantage of the entire shaft, giving the player greater control and accuracy in their game.
To help make the RibCor Team one of the quickest release sticks, CCM is using a low kick featuring a soft taper area and optimal vertical flex. Along with their exclusive RibCor Asymmetric Taper design, this kick point maximizes loading while driving that ultra-quick release.
Moving down to the blade of the RibCor Team, CCM has included their C6 weave throughout the blade. This weave helps to keep the blade durable without sacrificing feel and control. The blade is a Reinforced Ascent Blade 2, which has an optimized stiffness profile that transitions from softer in the heel to extra stiff in the toe, for heightened puck feel and quick release.
Featuring a low kick, ergonomic shaft design, reinforced ascent blade and a C6 Weave, CCM has continued to improve upon their already lightweight, quick-releasing RibCor stick. If you are looking for a low kick stick that will help your shots release as fast as possible, look no further than the CCM RibCor Team Intermediate Hockey Stick!
