The 2021 CCM Ribcor hockey sticks are scheduled for a staggered release, with the Ribcor 6 launching on October 22 and the top-of-the-line Ribcor 6 Pro launching in the middle of December. Pure Hockey has all the information you’ll need to shop these new Ribcors with confidence. Fans of CCM sticks will love what the 2021 Ribcor line has to offer, with two high-performing models suited for every level of play.
The Ribcor hockey stick line is CCM’s low-kick point family, designed for players who take quick-motion shots and prefer release speed over power. The low kick combined with the asymmetrical taper requires minimal effort to generate a lightning-quick shot. If you’re unsure which kick point fits your game best, check out our guide on How to Buy a Hockey Stick or visit your local Pure Hockey store for a full assessment from our staff.
CCM Ribcor 6 Pro Hockey Stick
The new Ribcor 6 Pro hockey stick stays true to the proven Ribcor DNA, but the addition of CCM’s new Skeleton+ technology makes for an even more reliable stick. An upgrade from the Ribcor 5 line, Skeleton+ is a manufacturing process that allows for a lighter, more consistent build in the taper area, making for a more responsive and higher-performing stick.
The Ribcor 6 Pro also features a thin-profile blade which CCM calls their Agility Blade with Peel-Ply. The Agility Blade’s soft linear stiffness helps create a whip-like flex profile for a quicker release and improved puck feel.
The Ribcor 6 Pro shaft uses an ergonomic design that offers a seamless energy transfer to maximize speed of release. To complement the shaft design, CCM used high-performance Nanolite carbon layering material and Sigmatex spread tow fabric, which create an extremely lightweight stick with impressive strength.
The CCM Ribcor 6 Pro is a versatile hockey stick designed to enhance shooting, passing, and stickhandling. While this model is built for the player who skates at least four or five times per week and needs top-of-the-line features to compete at a high level, any player, regardless of skill set or frequency of play, will appreciate the performance benefits the Ribcor 6 Pro provides.
CCM Ribcor 6 Hockey Stick
The 2021 Ribcor 6 also features CCM’s Skeleton+ technology in the taper area, creating a lighter and better-feeling stick due to more consistent manufacturing. Like the top-of-the-line Ribcor 6 Pro, the Ribcor 6 stick features a low-kick point construction for a quicker release and better feel. It also includes an ergonomic shaft design that improves energy transfer for a faster release.
The Ribcor 6’s materials and blade construction aren’t as advanced as the Ribcor 6 Pro’s, but this stick still provides considerable performance benefits. The Ascent Blade 2 with Peel-Ply provides an optimized stiffness profile that transitions seamlessly from softer in the heel to extra stiff in the toe for heightened puck feel and a quicker release. The Pure Carbon shaft technology and Sigmatex spread tow fabric in the blade make for a durable but lightweight stick.
This year’s CCM Ribcor 6 hockey stick includes some of the same top-end features as the Pro model but at a lower price point, giving players a high-performing option at a great value.
While this model is built for performance- to elite-level players who skate at least three or four times per week, the Ribcor 6 is another high-level option that any player at any level can appreciate.
