THE NEXT STEP IN HOCKEY PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY
Today's skate and stick technology focuses on comfort, speed and velocity.
Gone are the days of the heavily padded boot and wooden sticks.
You wouldn't think of sending your kids (or yourself) on the ice without the proper protective equipment, would you? A helmet, shoulder pads, shin guards and elbow pads are the most common pieces of ice hockey protective equipment, but what's protecting your foot and ankle?
EVOLUTION OF THE AG-1
Created by an adult hockey player who was sidelined for ten months after taking a hard shot off the ankle, a new piece of protective equipment was born.
Over the past few years there have been several prototypes but it wasn't until creator Tony Siragusa was playing with a Snapple cap that he had his "a-ha" moment on how to disperse the energy created by the puck hitting the skate.
United States Patent
"The present invention comprehends an impact force attenuating energy dissipating ankle and foot protector accessory which is removably attachable over an ice skate work by a hockey player and which protects the ankle and foot of a player from painful and potentially serious injuries which can be caused by a flying puck impacting the feet and ankles of a player."
