Montreal, May 16, 2006 - RBK Hockey is proud to introduce a size S (Small) RBK 8k helmet to complete its offering to elite players and consumers. Pro players like Sidney Crosby and Chris Pronger already use the RBK 8k helmet. With the introduction of this new size to the market, young players will also have the opportunity to use the same helmet model as worn by their idols on the ice.
The 360 degree, fully adjustable RBK 8k helmet is designed for elite hockey players and is the lightest helmet available on the market. It features the lightweight composite micro SubShell, which is exclusive to RBK. In RBK's inaugural year, 127 National Hockey League (NHL) players and 340 players in the American Hockey League (AHL) have adopted the 8k helmet, as well as 100% of the players in the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) and the ECHL. The RBK 8k has had tremendous impact on the ice and in the market place, and the demand is increasing with the addition of the new size S.
The RBK 8k helmet, which was available in Medium and Large sizes, is now offered in a size Small at all hockey equipment retailers.
