To take the next step in their product development Stiga turned to TeXtreme spread tow carbon fiber reinforcements to get better performance on their blades.

TeXtreme is based on using spread tows instead of yarns to achieve ultra light weight and high-performance products. Companies utilizing the TeXtreme Technology achieve good properties on weight, stiffness, strength, etc. compared to those using other carbon fiber materials.

Mats Bandstigen, CEO of STIGA Sports AB, said “The proficiency of STIGA’s R&D department, combined with state of the art manufacturing procedures, makes it possible for STIGA to constantly provide new, innovative and unsurpassed products. The combination of the finest wood, high-end TeXtreme material and craftsmanship make STIGA’s blades the best that nature and science can offer.”

Several sports have seen the use of TeXtreme make an impact on performance from Formula 1 racing, Americas Cup, advanced aerospace, bicycles. In addition, over 400 NHL players uses sticks reinforced by this carbon fiber technology.

The retail launch of the new blades is set for beginning of 2015.
