BORAS, Sweden, February 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Bauer Hockey has introduced its latest stick, the SUPREME 1S which is reinforced by TeXtreme®. TeXtreme® carbon fiber fabrics help reduce the weight while, at the same time, increase the durability and strength of the stick.
Bauer Hockey uses the TeXtreme® Technology in all of the three of its product families, SUPREME, VAPOR and NEXUS, to reduce weight, improve the mechanical performance and for the superior surface smoothness, which reduces the need for finishing drastically compared to other carbon fiber materials. "Through our partnership with TeXtreme® we are able to incorporate a high performance material into our elite products in a way that helps us deliver to our consumers the premium products they expect from BAUER," said Craig Desjardins, GM Hockey for Bauer Hockey.
"TeXtreme® helps us maximize playability and integrate innovative designs and features we develop," Craig continued. In addition to TeXtreme®, another feature of the stick is 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. Also making its return from the 1S predecessor, the MX3, is the Power Sense Core 2 blade which integrates SENSE layer materials with the TeXtreme® carbon fiber to create a well-balanced and lightweight blade while maintaining key dampening attributes.
The SUPREME 1S features a new design in order to offer a powerful shot. The stick features a higher kick point in order to allow more energy to transfer.
Bauer Hockey is the market leading brand within ice hockey and more than 400 NHL players use BAUER sticks reinforced by TeXtreme®.
Alongside the use of TeXtreme® in ice hockey, other users can be found in Formula 1, America's Cup, bicycles, golf shafts, tennis, surf boards, rowing boats, skis, snowboards, NASCAR and various industrial and advanced aerospace applications.
