Built to ensure your shot gets off as quick as possible, the Ribcor 45K stick comes complete with easy-to-load technology, the SXX2 blade, and low kick point you've come to expect from the Ribcor family.
- Flex ProfileThe Ribcor 45K comes with easy-to-load technology, which is a unique stiffness profile that mirrors the Ribcor shaft.
- BladeThe SXX2 Blade's stiffness goes from stiff in the heel to extra stiff in the toe for a sneaky quick release.
- High Loading RatioThanks to a Power Taper Ratio of 3:1, players will get a more vertical stiffness, which means that less energy is wasted down into the ice and more energy is transferred all the way through the blade.
- Kick PointTrue to Ribcor form, the 45K features a low kick point for easy to load shots with a surprisingly quick release.
With all the different sticks available on the market, it can be hard to choose the right one. Not only are there many models, but curves and flexes can also be a challenge. Picking the right flex is a crucial step. If a player picks a stick that is too soft or too stiff they will not be able to load the stick efficiently. This chart was developed to help guide players, by using two simple criteria, weight and height.
