#HockeyAtHome

#HockeyAtHome

With the 2019/2020 Ice and Inline Hockey season finsihing prematurely it doesn't mean it's the end of hockey. Bauer has launched the campaign #HockeyAtHome to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus as people across the world are being asked to stay home. We fully support this initiative and understand the importance of social distancing in minimizing the impact of the virus. However, we can't live without hockey, and we know you can't either.

We have heaps of training accessories to keep you game ready along with outdoor wheels and inline hockey skates to keep your feet moving and to stay active.  

Show us how you are staying in the game at home! Share your pictures, videos, and stories using #HockeyAtHome and #SkateStationUK. Over the next few weeks, we will be posting ideas on how to have fun, train, and stay connected with the greatest game on earth.

Bauer Nexus ADV Launching Jan 25th

Bauer Nexus ADV Launching Jan 25th

January 25th sees history being made as it is the launch of the #NEXUSADV as it redefines stick performance. Not only is this the lightest NEXUS stick ever created at 465 grams, it is loaded with revolutionary technology that will give players a level of confidence they have never experienced when shooting the puck.

ER SPINE TECHNOLOGY

USES A NEW 5-SIDED SHAFT GEOMETRY TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE.

By changing the geometry of the shaft, we can remove excess carbon

fiber layers in the key loading area of the stick while maintaining

a standard Nexus mid-kick point.

PERFORMANCE BENEFITS:

  • Reduces weight
  • Creates a faster transfer of energy to the blade
  • It’s easier to lean into the stick to load and release shots with less effort

SHAPE BENEFITS:

  • This new shape has been designed to contour to the palm of your hand to maximize feel and control

SLINGTECH

  • INSERTS A HOLE IN THE BLADE TO CREATE A SLINGSHOT EFFECT WHEN RELEASING THE PUCK.

WHY A HOLE?

  • By adding a hole in the blade, we were able to create two separate blade sections with different properties that work together while loading and releasing shots.

RESULT:

  • The blade does the work, making it easier to load and release the puck with added acceleration
  • The two different sections hug the puck for better control

WHAT ABOUT DURABILITY?

  • We used FEA analysis, spent over 2000 hours on the ice and did every type of lab testing possible to ensure we didn’t compromise blade durability with this new technology.

RESULT:

  • We reinforced the edges of the hole to ensure that durability is on par with our elite level sticks

HOW SHOULD THE BLADE BE TAPED?

  • There isn’t a special or unique way to tape the blade. It should be taped the same way as a standard blade.

Stick Recycle

Stick Recycle

Here at SkateStation we are trying to help reduce waste going to landfill so we have introduced #StickRecycle in store at SkateStation. 

It's very simple just drop in your old/broken composite stick in-store and get 10% off the price of a new one.

Here at skatestation we’re continuously looking at ways to up our game when it comes to sustainability. Hockey sticks aren't doing much of a favour for the environment, the composite of materials used to make sticks do not decompose and therefore end up in landfill. Thankfully there’s already talented crafts people out there who are taking your old broken sticks and upcycling them into lots of cool useful things…. giving them a longer second life and keeping them away from landfill. Checkout Sticks n Bits and Hockey Hangers who we currently donate the old sticks to make into awesome new products. If you are also a crafts person and want to be added onto our contacts for broken stick donation then please email us contact@skatestation.co.uk or message us on facebook - SkateStation.co.uk

The T's+C's

  • Your whole old/broken stick must be donated to get 10% off a new one.
  • In-store only.
  • Applies to composite sticks only, not wooden sticks.
  • Only applies to full price sticks.
  • Cannot be used with any other discount code
  • All sticks dropped in at skatestation will be given away to local crafts people to be turned into something nice.
  • STICK RECYCLE - GET 10% OFF
