Sigmatex (Runcorn, UK) is working with CCM Hockey on a line of premium hockey sticks for 2017. The upcoming product line will incorporate Sigmatex’s sigmaST fabric, and is driven by weight reduction and strength objectives.

The range utilizes Sigmatex’s sigmaST fabric which is reportedly 20% lighter than traditional carbon fiber fabrics and has an excellent strength to weight ratio. This technology is crucial to sporting applications, particularly in the hockey industry that demands a light weight stick which maintains durability and has a high impact tolerance.

Reebok-CCM Hockey, a subsidiary of the adidas Group, is headquartered in Montreal. With operations in Canada, the United States and Europe, the company is the world's largest designer, manufacturer and marketer of hockey equipment and related apparel. 

The sticks will be distributed globally and exploited in professional leagues across the world including the National, American, Canadian and Swedish hockey leagues.
