CCM and TaylorMade Collaborate to Launch the RBZ Hockey Stick

MONTREAL–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A leader in hockey equipment and a leader in golf equipment today announced a long-term, multi-year collaboration aimed at redefining the hockey category with game-changing equipment.

“TaylorMade is a clear leader in product innovation in sporting goods and we are very excited to collaborate with them to bring some of their leading technologies to the most legendary hockey company in the industry.”

Montreal, PQ-based CCM is working with Carlsbad, CA-based TaylorMade to establish CCM as the leader in hockey product innovation. The collaboration between the two brands will be focused on bringing industry-leading TaylorMade performance technologies to CCM hockey sticks, demonstrating CCM’s commitment to technology, research and development.

“Our relationship with TaylorMade will be a game-changer for CCM,” said Philippe Dubé, General Manager of Reebok-CCM Hockey. “TaylorMade is a clear leader in product innovation in sporting goods and we are very excited to collaborate with them to bring some of their leading technologies to the most legendary hockey company in the industry.”

The first product to be unveiled as a result of this relationship is the CCM RBZ hockey stick. This brand new stick developed in collaboration with TaylorMade composite engineers features a revolutionary blade technology. NHL Rookie of the Month Gabriel Landeskog of the Colorado Avalanche has been using a limited edition version of the stick in all-white since early March. He and fellow National Hockey League rookie sensation Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of the Edmonton Oilers will be using the stick for the remainder of the season.

“Reebok-CCM and TaylorMade share the same passion for delivering high performing equipment played by the most demanding athletes using technical and innovative approaches,” said Benoit Vincent, Chief Technology Officer, TaylorMade.

The CCM RBZ stick and all of its technologies will be officially introduced on June 22, 2012 at the NHL Entry Draft in Pittsburgh with the retail launch to follow later in the year.

As part of its commitment to produce the most innovative and technologically advanced gear on the market, CCM currently has existing relationships with the University of Ottawa’s Neurotrauma Impact Testing Facility, Montreal Politechnique and several other renowned institutions to give hockey players the best head-to-toe experience.

    This merger is obviously a result of ccm losing there top endorser, ovechkin, because the player thought more of Bauer’s stick technology.

    The stick is ok for me it’s a bit heavy…I like a very light stick….the puck didn’t jump off the blade! I am going back to my Bauer apx stick after I give this stick one game….

    Oh great! another company jumping on the bandwagon to creating overpriced sticks. Are they planning on eclipsing the $500 mark per stick?

      Well if you can make a puck bend like in football (round kind) you can bend it round the D and get the Goalie trying to glove a slice…new dimension to the game… work on it man

SPOTTED: Titleist TS2 and TS3 fairway woods



Two weeks ago at the 2018 U.S. Open, Titleist started its “tour validation” process with the new TS2 and TS3 drivers — here’s a list of players who made the switch that week. Today, at the 2018 Quicken Loans National, Titleist is starting the same process with new TS2 and TS3 fairway woods.

According to Titleist, the validation process will take weeks or months, but that it will keep us updated on its social channels.

“This process will continue over the coming weeks and months across the worldwide professional tours. We will provide additional updates throughout the process at and on Titleist’s social channels using the hashtag #TSproject.” You can check out updates here, as well.
