CCM Ribcor Trigger ASY Stick
The CCM Ribcor Trigger ASY is the top-of-the-line stick in the Ribcor family and is ideal for elite-level players who want incredible puck feel and a lightning-fast low-kick point. CCM put the brand new ASY-1 flex profile, which is a new carbon fiber layup method, into the Trigger ASY. This allows the stick to load and release the puck significantly faster than any other stick in CCM's history.
Last year, CCM ditched the multi-rib design in the bottom of the stick and opted for a single concave rib, called PopMatrix, with the Reckoner. With the new Trigger ASY, the PopMatrix rib returns and it constantly keeps performance fibers in tension for a quick and efficient power transfer.
CCM modified the Ascent blade found on the Ribcor Reckoner and made it a little lighter on the Trigger ASY. Players still get the same softer heel for puck handling and stiffer toe for shooting power and accuracy with the new Ascent 2 blade.
Another feature that is brought over from the Reckoner to the Trigger ASY is Technora reinforcement. This Aramid carbon fiber is designed to make the shaft extremely durable. CCM did not need to change anything in terms of durability, because it just works.
The CCM Ribcor Trigger ASY weighs only 415g, which is the exact same weight as last year's Ribcor Reckoner and the feather-light 2016 Bauer Vapor 1X.
