The COLT's engineering prolongs the feel of a new stick.
Regardless of how long a composite stick has lasted without failing catastrophically it is widely observed that after several games a brand new composite begins to become "spongey" and less reactive. So while it may last, it does not perform as well as it once did. The COLT is engineered to protect the new feel.
Additionally, the construction of typical composite sticks leave them susceptible to sustaining "hairline fractures" with every hack and slash they encounter. In other words, every time your composite stick gets hit it sustains a very small crack, which is what leads to the stick exploding when you take your best shot of the season. The COLT does not sustain this type of damage and thereby keeps you safe from untimely failures.
Furthermore, for those playing a sufficiently competitive level of hockey, the COLT is the first stick engineered to endure the rough nature of the game, thereby decreasing the amount of sticks a player must purchase each year. By purchasing a COLT it is our hope that your yearly expenditure on hockey equipment is reduced considerably.Last updated:
Currently we are offering senior sized sticks (60" in length, from the heel of the blade).
We are most certainly looking to expand our product offering to incorporate intermediate and junior sized sticks as well, however this will likely only become possible after our KickStarter campaign finishes.
Although we would love to offer every size through our KickStarter, meeting the minimum order quantities from our supplier is understandably difficult at our stage in production.Last updated:
The COLT Club is the online COLT community.
By making a pledge and providing your email after the conclusion of our KickStarter campaign you will be entered into the COLT Club, where you will receive updates, news releases, and information regarding upcoming product launches and campaigns before they're released to the public! Additionally, COLT Club members will always be made aware of special promotions and discounts in advance of the general public!
As a stick owner, you will be able to register your stick online through the COLT Club, track its performance, and provide feedback!Last updated:
The application of the COLT's nano-material has been engineered to protect the "hack zone" of the hockey stick (encapsulating the blade as well as 18-24 inches up from the heel of the stick).
This means that the area in which you would cut to adjust for height (the top end of the stick) consists of the normal composite material. In this way, shortening the COLT is just as simple and safe as shortening a regular composite sick!Last updated:
The COLT will not require special disposal considerations. We also will strive to supply the most environmentally sustainable and "eco-friendly" product possible. The metallic component of the COLT is fully recyclable using existing technology. For the epoxy-based carbon-fiber components, we have yet to identify suitable recycling protocols; however, we are interacting with leading industry experts in the aerospace and defense sectors to remain abreast of developments in this area.Last updated:
