This fall we’ll be welcoming a few new sticks to the market, including the Easton Stealth RS, and Bauer Vapor APX stick. Reebok hockey will also be releasing their latest and greatest stick, the new Reebok Ai9 hockey stick. The Reebok Ai9 stick has a great look to it, coming in mostly black with red and silver graphics. It will, of course, come in a grip or matte finish. The corners will also have a bit of a textile feel to it.
The Reebok Ai9 stick has some interesting new technology incorporated into it as well. The front of the shaft will actually be two times stiffer than the backside. For example, if you are a right-handed shot, the part of the stick which faces the net as you shoot will be stiffer. This will result in a quicker snap and recoil when taking shots.
In terms of blade technology, the new Reebok Ai9 will feature a pure fiber blade that is actually the lightest blade ever made by Reebok/CCM. In fact, the Reebok Ai9 blade will be 10 grams lighter. The decreased weight will, of course, change the balance point of the stick. The blade also features a cool multi-texture look where you can actually see the pure fiber weave.
If you’re dying to get this stick already, much like I am, then you will not have to wait too long. The launch date for the Reebok Ai9 hockey stick is October 15th. To be one of the first to get it, you can pre-order the new Reebok Ai9 stick today at Ice and Inline Warehouse for only $229.99!
