Brand New for the 2022 season, the CCM Ribcor 86K Senior Hockey Stick is the newest competitive level stick in CCM’s Ribcor family of sticks. The Ribcor stick line is designed for the quick release shot, and the Ribcor 86K features new upgrades making this a great lightweight, durable, and quick release stick option.
The Ribcor 86K features a C6 weave on the blade, which was developed using cutting edge design tools to drastically reduce weight without sacrificing durability. This allows the blade to be strong without feeling too heavy.
With the design of the Ribcor 86K shaft, CCM is using their popular E-Geometry shaft usually only seen in the top models. This advanced ergonomic construction was designed by the CCM Performance Lab in collaboration with some of the best hockey players in the world. It is designed to offer a seamless energy transfer to maximize the speed of release. Starting at the top of the shaft, you will find a rounded concave design that allows for advanced comfort and control. As you move down to the mid-shaft, you find a rounded convex back side combined with a square-cornered concave front, which maximizes dexterity and control.
To help make the Ribcor 86K a quick release stick, CCM is using a low kick point at the bottom of the shaft, just above the blade. This kick point maximizes loading while driving that ultra-quick release.
Back down at the blade of the Ribcor 86K, CCM has included their C6 weave throughout the blade. This weave helps to keep the blade durable without sacrificing feel and control. The blade is an Ascent Blade 2 with peel ply, which has an optimized stiffness profile that transitions from softer in the heel to extra stiff in the toe, for heightened puck feel and quick release.
Featuring a low kick, improved ergonomic shaft design, ascent blade 2 and a C6 Weave, The Ribcor 86K Senior Hockey Stick is a great stick option for any competitive level player looking for a good balance of price and performance.
