Ritual Hockey's Philosophy
By Nathaniel Nelson
Ritual focuses on design & craftsmanship. We use the world’s best materials, expert designers & most experienced craftsman.
Our products are designed for those of you who demand performance function, quality & a sense of style.
Do you have a hockey ritual that helps you perform your best?
At Ritual Hockey our ritual is the process we go through to bring you the most superior gear for you to achieve your best.
We’ve set out to be unique. We don’t want to offer you more of the same gear already available - our focus is on superior materials, design and craftsmanship.
Our ritual is all about purposeful design. We want your gear to perform it’s absolute best for the function you bought it for.
The men and women who craft our products are all experts in their fields. They have an appreciation of performance functionality as well as artful design.
We manage a limited product range so we can focus on outstanding products. Every product is designed from the ground up to perform a specific function.
Each product reflects extensive research and development. We explore the relationship between materials, design, people and hockey. Our expert designers perform a variety of material and design tests resulting in a range of first-class products of superior quality & durability.
The production process for Ritual gear cannot be automated; each item is handmade by a team of expert craftsmen and women. Each hockey stick, for example, can involve up to 10 hours of crafting to specifications.
We've taken no shortcuts - we ensure our products are constructed using the most superior materials available. We offer you premium quality gear because we’ve utilised the world’s best materials. Our gear lasts and ages well. We don’t mind if our products age gracefully; older gear that still performs its function despite being used extensively is appreciated and well-loved. That’s not to say we’re not continually seeking out the best technology and materials to create the future’s best range – it just means you don’t have to keep replacing your gear.
Composite Sticks - Carbon & Kevlar:
Leading composite material manufacturers supply the Carbon and Kevlar used in our composite hockey sticks. Located in Japan and The Netherlands our suppliers have proud histories in composite materials engineering and development and in servicing the aerospace industry.
Military Grade Luggage:
Our bags are constructed using Korean 1000D Kodra fabric that’s well known for its durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs. All high-stress areas and anchor points are triple-stitched and the bags are lined with high quality 420D Oxford Nylon. That’s why we’re bold enough to offer you a 2-year warranty – we know they’ll last.
