World´s lightest Floorball stick by UNIHOC – 14.07.2015

The IFF partner and market leading floorball equipment manufacturer Unihoc has launched the world’s lightest floorball stick reinforced by TeXtreme®. The product hit stores worldwide last week.

By utilising the TeXtreme® Technology, the stick weighs just 183 grams and is the lightest stick ever introduced to the market.

- The interest for the new sticks has been massive since we revealed this project to the market. Customers from around the whole world have been really excited and the demand has been much higher than we expected, says Torbjörn Jonsson, Sales Manager at Renew Group Sweden AB.

TeXtreme® Spread Tow carbon reinforcements are a unique kind of composite reinforcement suitable when looking to reduce weight and improve mechanical properties. Many sports have seen the use of TeXtreme® make an immediate and dominant impact on performance from Formula 1 racing, Americas Cup, advanced aerospace, bicycles. In addition, over 400 NHL players use sticks reinforced by this carbon fiber technology.

- We are happy that TeXtreme® contributed to make yet another of the world’s lightest products. By utilising our materials the stick weight could be reduced while maintaining stiffness giving the stick the desired feel. TeXtreme® is used in some of the world’s most challenging sports and have references that are living proof of the performance benefits it brings, says Henrik Blycker, CEO of Oxeon AB.
The retail launch of the new Unihoc sticks takes place this week around the world. For more input, check out the product video:
