SHOSA.......The new Shosa franchise brings something completely new to the hockey pitch.....the ultimate drag flick stick. For maximum power when flicking.
Working in the shadows until the critical moment and the perfect time to strike. Designed to be the ultimate drag flick stick with an all new shape never seen before on a hockey pitch......this stick is a work of art.....!!!
The Grind Rail - helps to keep the ball connected to the stick for as long as possible during the drag flick action, enabling maximum power generation.
3D Optimised Profile - this has been optimised to be more aggressive which tunes the SHOSA bow for drag flicking.
The Leading Edge Sweet Spot - this has been increased to make reverse hitting more powerful and accurate.
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 Pro Level stick from adidas has an ultra thin 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. There is no filing and sanding after moulding which can damage fibres.
Offers more consistent weight and structural performance. 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.

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. (On the Shosa Kromaskin.3 the Carbon wrap is only to the lower 1/3 of the stick).
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.
