Warrior Novium SP INT
221031570021Intro & New Features
With a new hockey season comes the debut of Warrior’s new mid kick stick family, Novium. Sitting with a kick point somewhere between their low-mid Alpha line and the late Dynasty high kick line, Novium looks to empower your shots with a more modern and innovative design. This iteration of the mid kick hockey stick comes equipped with a Bevel taper, a Minimus Carbon UD weave, RLC 122, and a Fuelcore blade.
Stick Flex Profile
The Novium family is Warrior’s new mid kick hockey stick line, meaning it is designed to increase the amount of energy you can input into your shots. These sticks bend a bit higher in the blade than low and hybrid sticks, which is what allows for more energy to be stored before rocketing a shot. These sticks specifically are a bit tougher and stiffer to shoot with, but once you get a good feel of the stick, you will really feel that power. Mid kicks are best suited for power forwards and defensemen, although that should not deter you from playing with a Novium stick if that’s what works best for you.
Shaft Construction & Stiffness
For increased toughness, the stick uses Warrior’s Minimus Carbon unidirectional weave, coupled with their Revolutionary Lightweight Construction (RLC) 122.
The bevel taper is a new innovation in Warrior’s stick lines, which has an angled concave design along the bottom of the shaft. This taper is designed to stiffen and strengthen that section of the stick for better control and velocity on shots.
Warrior’s Fuelcore blade returns in the Novium SP for greater responsiveness, pop, and durability. Fuelcore is a polymer blade core for that enhanced feel, which is surrounded by carbon composite layering to reduce the breakdown of materials.
Novium showcases some clean, new graphics from Warrior, with a mainly red, black, and white colour scheme. The SP variation includes deeper red Warrior and Novium text graphics, and no white along the shaft.
