CCM© Launches Vector™ 110 Full Composite Stick
CCM© Vector™ 110 Full Composite Stick; Leader in Shot Velocity and Durability
Montreal, Quebec, August 2, 2002...CCM©, the exclusive supplier of jerseys to the National Hockey League, is extremely pleased to announce the launch of its new full composite stick, the Vector™ 110. Proven to outperform any other stick on shot velocity and durability, the CCM© Vector™ 110 was engineered to improve a player's game. The three important features of the stick that make it the best on the market are: Integrated Rigidity Matrix creating more puck velocity, Impact Layer Technology for optimum durability and Weightless Balance for perfect control.
Put simply, the Integrated Rigidity Matrix helps improve shot velocity and accuracy. The high torsional stiffness of the shaft creates less rotation in the stick, therefore, more accuracy. Combined with an advanced stiff composite blade and an 18" taper, the player gets an optimal dynamic loading that creates higher puck velocity. To scientifically test this, the University of Windsor in Ontario used a specialized robot that takes slap shots at a consistent force for all sticks. Results: the CCM© Vector™ 110 stick significantly outperforms any other stick on the market.
With the revolutionary Impact Layer Technology used in critical impact areas of the shaft, the CCM© Vector™ 110 is the most durable stick on the ice. Tested in laboratories alongside other full composite sticks, the CCM© Vector™ 110 surpasses all other products on the market when it comes to impact energy absorption. The CCM© Vector™ 110 blade also features the new Dura-core technology that delivers the thinnest and toughest blade ever.
The CCM© Vector™ 110's Weightless Balance is obtained with a unique ultra-thin lightweight blade and a center of mass engineered further up the shaft. This perfectly balanced stick improves reaction time and puck control. In addition, with its standard 60" full composite shaft, the Vector™ 110 doesn't require an end-plug that adds weight to most of the other composite sticks in the market place.
