Kromaskin - Performance that shines. F1 Technology that has been utilized to create a unique, aesthetically beautiful hockey stick that does not compromise on performance.
This brand new top level stick from adidas has a carbon fibre material wrapping the stick shaft which enhances structural performance. Fresh out of the stick mould there is no paint on the majority of the stick shaft creating a unique looking stick. Spread tow technology taken from F1 racing uses tightly packed uniform fibres woven together creating a higher fibre content per area increasing the strength and durability of the stick, as well as more consistent weight distribution. A pre-moulded epoxy core in the head produces superior layer compaction creating a more consistent head structure which improves consistency and response when passing and receiving the ball.
- Extra Low Bow with drag flick groove for faster ball acceleration when drag flicking
- New 3-D Head shape for increased ball control and enhanced 3-d skills
- Adigrip tape combining traditional PU with Chamois-like touch
- Touch compound helps to keep the ball under control at the contact point
- Rounded traditional handle
Adidas Kromaskin Features:
Kromaskin is a carbon fibre material which covers the stick meaning no paint is applied to produce the outstanding cosmetics featured across the range of hockey sticks. The use of Kromaskin produces a stick which has a more consistent weight and structural performance.
Ultra thin carbon tapes which are woven in a biaxial structure. These tightly packed, uniform fibres reduce voids and carbon defects whilst the use of thinner laminates optimize the weighting of the hockey stick. By using higher fibre content per area increases the strength to weight ratio resulting in improved durability and strength.
The epoxy core located in the head of the hockey stick is made up of polymetric shells which expand on heating resulting in superior layer compaction. This in turn offers a more consistent structure improving stick strength and durability. As a result, hitting feels more solid, and the consistency and response when passing and receiving the ball in improved.
