• By strategically repositioning the insert, our new XCORE Gen 2 technology creates a sweet spot that is 3X LARGER than its predecessor.• The repositioned and redesigned insert provides increased absorption, dampening the impact for greater puck control when stick handling and receiving passes.• Our larger, more responsive insert provides players with a wider sweet spot, ensuring optimal puck spin and a clean puck trajectory for unmatched shooting ACCURACY.
• The 2019 XCORE ACF incorporates our patented BRT+ technology in the blade design for a stronger, lighter blade with increased heel durability – outperforming its predecessor in strength and consistency.
• Axenic Technology is a patented process by which we combine a compression molded shaft into a true one-piece stick.The industry-leading Axenic process results in a seamless build, putting the player’s hands in direct contact with the puck and when combined with our XCORE Gen 2 technology, producing unmatched CONTROL and FEEL.
• SmartPly is a process by which fiber angles, and the order of those angles, are optimized in up to 25 layers of unidirectional carbon fiber in a single shaft.• The SmartPly process creates the perfect marriage between weight, balance, and industry-leading impact strength.
• SmartFlex is a design process by which a stick’s stiffness profile is optimized for all shot types. The result is a more powerful shot from any shooting position.• Combining SmartFlex and XCORE Gen 2 technologies produce a finely tuned shaft, unmatched puck control, and a highly responsive stick from all shooting angles.
