CCM Resistance Helmet

For the past few years, Bauer has been the market leader in high-end, highly advanced hockey helmets. The Re-Akt was released in 2012 and marked the first time a company designed a helmet to manage the variety of impacts that occur during the course of a hockey game. On June 27th, with the release of the CCM Resistance helmet, people in the market for these highly protective helmets will have a new option.

CCM spent the past several years researching hockey hits and impacts. By recreating and examining hits from NHL and other high-level games CCM was able to find out why certain types of hits caused injuries while others did not. These tests measured impact force, speed, direction and contact point to determine what areas needed the most protection.

True A6.0 Stick

One of the most exciting new pieces of gear to come into our warehouse in the past couple months is the True Hockey A6.0 Stick. Although the brand might be a bit unfamiliar to you, True has used their patented Axenic Technology to produce over 2 million hockey sticks for other manufacturers and over 1 billion (yeah, that’s right, billion) golf club shafts, so it is safe to say that they are pros with composite materials. These guys really know what they are doing, which becomes quite clear once you get the A6.0 in your hands for the first time.
