Eye-catching design is one thing. High-performance engineering is another. This is where the art comes in: blending sharp aesthetics with real science.
We spent years assembling a world-class team of sports scientists, designers and product engineers who work together to build the perfect stick. Ritual Hockey gear is designed in Australia, crafted by specialists around the globe and stress-tested by International hockey players. Every one of our products goes through a rigorous prototyping phase. And we mean rigorous. A single stick can take over 10 hours to actually craft.
Each Ritual stick is also designed for a particular style of play. There are no ‘generic sticks’ in our range. We’ve designed a stick for low and fast aerial maneuvers and one for more upright, traditional players. There’s a stick for drag-flicking specialists and another for goalies. It’s all about tailoring a stick to your personal game.
The world’s finest hockey sticks require A-Grade materials. So we take a lot of care when it comes to sourcing. Our composite Kevlar and carbon comes from aerospace manufacturers in the Netherlands and Japan (widely regarded as the best in the world). Our bags are forged from hard-wearing Korean 1000D Kodra Fabric, triple-stitched and lined with 420D Oxford Nylon. We test and optimise everything: from Silica stick faces to the hand-wound Vapor Pro Grip.
Perfection is what we’re shooting for, but that isn’t something that just happens. We’re ritualistic about it. We work at it, every day. Honing our craft, edging a little closer each time.
