RBK Hockey has quickly become the #1 Goalie Equipment in the NHL
Montreal, QC (October 26, 2005) - Starting with this 2005/06 season, RBK Hockey has become the exclusive worldwide manufacturer and marketer of authentic, replica and practice jerseys for the National Hockey League (NHL). In addition, hundreds of NHL players have recently ‘made the switch' to RBK Hockey equipment. The new RBK 9K Pump skate, RBK 8K FitLite Helmet, RBK 7K One-Piece Composite Stick and RBK Premier Goalie Series have been adopted by an overwhelming number of NHL players due to its unique high performance technology platform.
17 NHL Goalies have opted to substitute their former gear with the new RBK Premier Goalie line, making it the overall number one Goalie Equipment in the NHL. Developed by goalie guru Michel Lefebvre, the new 11-inch pads offer ultra lightweight performance benefits. It's no wonder Netminders have ‘made the switch', including Jean-Sébastien Giguère of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Andrew Raycroft of the Boston Bruins, David Aebischer of the Colorado Avalanche, Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars, Roberto Luongo of the Florida Panthers, Mathieu Garon of the L.A. Kings and Curtis Joseph of the Phoenix Coyotes.
The RBK 8K FitLite Helmet is the choice of a significant number of players at the NHL Level, with over 110 players already using it. The RBK 8K Helmet is the lightest helmet ever developed and features Reebok's MICRODIAL technology, a unique circumference adjustment dial that makes it the first-ever fully customizable 360° hockey helmet. The most recent 9K Pump Skate, on 21 NHL Players already, features the new revolutionary Reebok PUMP technology, providing custom fit for ultimate response and performance. Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chris Pronger of the Edmonton Oilers are only a few of the NHL Players who've ‘made the switch'.
Reebok has been designated as the official outfitter of the NHL. Since the start of the 2005-06 season, RBK Hockey has been the exclusive supplier of NHL Authentic Jerseys to all players on the ice and the official Locker Room Apparel supplier.
