Resin Matrix - The Resin Matrix is the process of molding the stick where the resin combines both the chemical and physical structures of different fibers together. When fibers and resin are combined, they form a composite material with new characteristics that are better than the individual components.
Kraibon - KRAIBON is a thin film made on non-cross-linked rubber that hardens within the component laminate in the same production process. Directly integrated in the stick's lay-up, KRAIBON forms a chemical and physical bond without any additional bonding agent.
6K Carbon Fiber - 6K Carbon Fiber is only available in the GXXII TOUR Series is used as a reinforcement to maximize the strength properties of the hockey stick. This fabric has an incredible strength to weight ratio and provides superior rigidity for great aesthetics.
Lay-Up - The fiber composition and lay-up are major components in defining how a stick performs. GRYPHON's lay-up is the performance ‘X' factor. Gryphon does this differently. For them, it's an art. It's a sixth sense based on years of experience and the knowledge of how to best achieve the desired result of power and get a great crisp feel to allow that instant response from the players hands for exceptional ball control.
