Easton Mako protective line reinforces Easton as a trendsetter

Easton entered 2013 fresh off a year in which the Stealth RS and Mako sticks made a big splash on the hockey world.

In terms of aesthetics alone, the Mako and Stealth’s clean look were monster hits with hockey players everywhere. The weight and performance of each stick brought them to the top of the heap when comparing the products that hit the market in 2012.

Easton’s prowess in stick making is well documented, going all the way back to the Synergy. In addition previous skate and glove lines have maintained impressive staying power in the hockey world. This year, the foremost leader in stick technology has taken a new and aggressive approach with their protetive equipment.

Brand new lines that bear the Stealth and Mako names are to be released and they both bring a new wrinkle to what options players have to wear underneath their uniform.

Both the Stealth and Mako lines feature a design rooted in maintaining a full range of motion for the wearer. The shoulder pads in particular focus on this with Easton’s Segmented FRM. However, that is where most of the comparisons will end.

While the elbow pads and pants for both lines share nearly identical traits, the shoulder pads and shin guards differ in many ways. The true variance is with the Mako line which has brought forth a number of new features and benefits as the Stealth protective gear is far more traditional in terms of features and design.

The new Mako shoulder pads is designed to provide an equally protective pad while utilizing lightweight and free moving design. This is accomplished with the new Conic Body Fit design feature which uses an asymmetric, cross-body closure and corresponding straps that adjust the entire unit.

The Conic Body Fit allows for almost an unobstructed range of motion for the player with a design that hinges around your back as opposed to over your shoulders. In addition to hinging in the back, the unit is built more like a shirt and less like a shawl (for lack of a better term). These two features minimizes the typical restrictions in twisting and rotating that a traditional shoulder pad – one that drapes you’re your shoulders – would have.

By providing a shoulder pad that fits and reacts in unison with your body, Easton is improving upon a method of maximizing protection (which this unit does) without limiting mobility.

The same type of features are found in the new Mako shin pad. Easton spent a great deal of time redeveloping the knee system in the pad in order to focus the center of gravity on that location while improving on the anatomical support.

In the same way that the Conic Body Fit system is designed to react to your upper body’s natural movement, the new anatomic knee on the shin guard is designed to move in unison with the natural bend of your knee.

Easton’s three-piece design incorporates a stiff, thick primary shin guard that covers an injected calf wrap which provides flexible wrap-around protection for the wearer.

What is particularly impressive about the Mako line is that a majority of the design features can be found with every model. This is not a protective line that leaves out features as you hit certain price points. While weight and performance will be limited when comparing the M3 to the Mako, the Conic Body Fit and other features aren’t ignored.

This – along with the Stealth – is an impressive line that shouldn’t be ignored the next time you’re at Great Skate shopping for protective equipment.

The clean lines and styling of the Easton Mako Ice Hockey Skate are features that have made this one of the most popular skates models in all levels of hockey. Now Easton and Great Skate have teamed up for a contest to award one lucky player a brand new pair of Easton Mako Ice Hockey Skates.

In order to enter the contest, go to the Great Skate Facebook page, like us and enter your information for the contest.

In a world of stiff boots that lack anatomical characteristics and restrict movement, we believe in a new sense of freedom, performance and the Art of Speed by creating a skate that optimizes natural movement.

The push direction Asymmetrical patterns allow the skates to fall in line with direction of travel to generate speed and power through cornering. This not only looks great but keeps the skate performance high.

As mentioned, the fit of these skates gives a full range of motion to the foot, ultimately maximizing the Art of Speed and natural movements. Easton took the time to alter the skate this season in hopes of increasing the range of motion for a player while also maintaining the comfort and protection that has been an hallmark of these skates for sometime.

You can come into Great Skate and try on a pair and feel the difference for yourself.

The Mako 2 replaces the original Mako starting off with the shaft that is lighter than the original Easton Mako, and it’s slightly concave with texture using uni-directional fibers which make it stronger and lighter. The Blade has been lightened as well, and the ribs are actually shifted a bit upward increasing the area where puck meets blade.

Having said this when we tried out the new Easton Mako II the puck come off the blade really hot, makes for a better and a softer feel of the puck. Not only did Easton get this stick right but it has great color features by going back to the original black blade and keeping with tradition with the white shaft.

We offer the Easton Mako and the Easton Mako M5 hockey sticks, as well as the Easton Stealth RS2, and Easton Stealth 75S. If you are just learning the game, the Mako M1 is a great stick for you to start with.

Constructed to meet the exacting standards set by Easton, these hockey sticks deliver stellar performance and outstanding value. After mastering the fundamentals of passing, stick handling, and shooting, you may want to consider the Easton Mako to move up to the competitive level.

Easton Stealth Hockey Sticks with Hydrophobic Coating

While hockey can trace its history back several centuries, hockey sticks were primarily made from wood until fairly recently. In the 1980s, Easton introduced an aluminum ice hockey stick. In subsequent years, ice hockey sticks were made with increasing frequency from fiberglass and other composite materials.

Today, Easton is again paving the way with its TORX technology, which is used in their Stealth hockey sticks. In addition to their TORX construction, which makes the sticks both resilient and flexible, Easton Stealth RS2 hockey sticks are precision molded, ensuring consistency across the line. The tapered flex design also provides a low kick point, minimizing the amount of potential energy that is lost and leading to a stronger shot.

If you want added control, consider the Stealth Grip hockey sticks from Easton. The Stealth Grip also incorporates a hydrophobic coating on the shaft of the stick. As a result, you minimize the chance that your hands will slip when you need complete control over your hockey stick.

In addition to the Easton Stealth hockey sticks for juniors and adults, Great Skate Hockey Supply Company also carries Easton’s Synergy hockey sticks. We also offer great prices on all essential hockey equipment, and we have a knowledgeable sales staff to guide you through selection. To find out which Easton hockey stick is right for you, contact us at Greatskate@Greatskate.com, or call 1.800.828.7496 today.

Two-Piece Easton Hockey Sticks

In addition, Easton uses corner reinforcement technology to provide additional strength to the shafts of its Stealth hockey sticks without increasing their weight. Stealth hockey sticks from Easton also include features that can improve your performance, like Taper Flex technology.

Since players have different styles, Easton makes several other kinds of hockey sticks in addition to the Stealth series.

If you’re looking for the latest in hockey pants for superior comfort and protection, look no further than Easton Stealth RSs. Used by many professional hockey players, these pants offer a full range of motion thanks to Easton’s Freedom of Movement system. The RS’s Vent Air system, combined with its Bio-Dri liner, will keep you dry and comfortable.

Easton Synergy hockey pants also offer considerable protection. Two unique systems used in Easton Stealth RS pants are Spine Tec and the Segmented Protection System (SPS). Because the lower back can be a vulnerable region, the Spine Tec system, which is also used on Easton Synergy EQ30 hockey pants, disperses any impact to this area to minimize potential damage.

SPS allows for a high degree of protection without compromising movement. In addition to these models of Easton hockey pants, we have several others from which you can choose at Great Skate Hockey Supply Company.
