Like previous sticks in the RIBCOR line, the Trigger ASY is no different as it features a low-kick point for that quick release and unreal accuracy.
If you aren’t in the market for a top end stick, the CCM’s RIBCOR lineup has some excellent offerings that are sure to keep your wallet intact, yet provide players with excellent performance and features. The RIBCOR 49K, 47K, and 45K all feature that great low-kick point that you’ve grown to love with that easy to load design for a quick release. Also, all three of the sticks feature a power tape ratio of 3:1 meaning more vertical stiffness for less wasted energy through the shaft, and more energy is transferred to the ice and blade for more powerful, accurate shots.
Specifically speaking, the RIBCOR 49K as well as the 47K feature Popmatrix Technology as in the RIBCOR Trigger ASY, which means that as the fibers are in tension, the transfer of power is more seamless and efficient overall. Additionally, both the 49K and 47K come standard with the Ascent blade which includes a newly optimized stiffness profile that goes from softer in the heel to extra stiff at the toe for a great combination of both feel and release quickness. The CCM RIBCOR 45K features Easy to Load Technology which is able to provide a unique stiffness profile that mirrors the RIBCOR shaft. Further, the 45K comes with the SXX2 blade which provides excellent feel, and is stiff in the heel transitioning to extra stiff in the toe for that quick release.
