New for 2022 CCM has revamped their popular Ribcor Trigger stick line with the CCM Ribcor Trigger 7 Pro Intermediate Hockey Stick. The Trigger 7 Pro has been built with a better balance point and weighs less than its predecessor, giving an enhanced feel and an ultra-quick release.
Starting with the shaft makeup, The Ribcor Trigger 7 Pro is continuing to use high performing Nanolite Carbon Layering technology combined with sigmatex spread tow. Specifically designed with players sticks in mind, Sigmatex’s new carbon weave improves on the previous generation’s durability and strength, all while allowing for a lighter and more balanced stick.
For the design of the Ribcor Trigger 7 Pro shaft, CCM is keeping their popular E-Geometry shaft. 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.
Working in tandem with the E-Geometry shaft, the Trigger 7 Pro will also use Skeleton+ shaft taper. This redesigned taper is a new manufacturing technology which will provide better reliability and durability in this crucial area of the stick. This will allow for better consistency and quicker shot release in those key moments of the game.
To achieve an ultra-quick release for the Ribcor Trigger 7 Pro, CCM is using an optimized low kick featuring a soft taper area and optimal vertical flex. Along with their exclusive skeleton+ taper design, this kick point maximizes loading while driving that ultra-quick release.
Moving down to the blade of the Ribcor Trigger 7 Pro, CCM is going with an agility 2 blade with peel-ply technology. This optimized agility blade now uses sigmatex spread tow carbon weave for an even better feel and release speed on the blade.
Improving on their Ribcor stick line with better durability and reduced weight, the Ribcor Trigger 7 Pro Intermediate Hockey Stick, will be a great option for an elite level player looking to improve every aspect of their game on the ice.
