NUYS, Calif., - Easton Hockey, the industry leader in
manufacturing technologically advanced hockey equipment,
has raised its game with the introduction of Zyvex’s
NanoSolve™ carbon nanotube technology. The revolutionary
new composite stick technology increases strength while
reducing weight. Using a new manufacturing process that
incorporates the strongest and most flexible molecular
material ever, Easton is taking hockey equipment to
yet another level, according to the vice president of
Easton Hockey, Ned Goldsmith.
“We view the incorporation
of CNT into our sticks as a critical step in further
developing the world’s best hockey sticks,” said Goldsmith.
“The Synergy SL is the first stick to utilize CNT’s
stronger and more durable material design. Keeping
with our tradition of putting Easton sticks in the
hands of the world’s best players, Peter Forsberg
has already adopted this new design while playing
in Sweden for Modo.”
NanoSolve is carbon nanotube
technology that uses materials engineered at the molecular
level to bring strength to materials via resin reinforcement.
Unlike other sports equipment manufacturers that use
partial or carbon particle materials, Easton's CNT,
powered by NanoSolve, is “real” carbon nanotube technology
that provides the unique combination of a significant
increase in strength and weight reduction (10~15%
increase in overall strength and toughness).
Lighter (420 grams), yet stronger
than its predecessor, the Synergy SL’s new blade design
yields unmatched performance. The evolution of this
application to the Synergy product line came from
the best minds at Easton and Zyvex working together
to create this stick.
“Easton is known for its innovation,
originality and ingenuity,” said Thomas A. Cellucci,
PhD, MBA, and president of Zyvex Corporation, which
provided its NanoSolve™ materials for the stick. “They've
continued to raise the bar by offering innovative
products based on the most advanced composite materials,
and we are pleased to be a part of their product development.”
