Default Alkali New Hockey Manufacturer

Anyone know who will be stocking this new manufacturer. Looks like pretty nice stuff.

From what I understand they will be doing e-tail in the regular merchandise time, (Late Sept- Early Nov.) & possibly some big pro-shop chains, Peranis etc.

I was not at state wars but knew people that went. Said the skates are pretty nice. Short/tight radius. Thanks for the feedback.

The higher end gloves are comparable to the Axiom line in term of fit, apparently. The sticks have some of the best reviews in term of grip, but are a little blade heavy.

IW will be carrying Alkali gear. From what we understand at this point, only the skates and possibly the stick will be ready for this holiday season. I would expect them to launch their full line around the same time as the other manufacturers next year.

Hi everyone, my name is Justin Hoffman and I am one of the founders of Alkali Hockey (along with my partner Joe Cook). As you may or may not know, Joe and I both have been in the hockey industry for over 15 years. Personally, I worked at Mission for 10 years, and have done design work for Reebok, Bauer, Easton, and Revision.

Joe and I are extremely excited about Alkali and have some great product coming. We will be launching our product for a mid to end November delivery to stores. If you have any questions, I will try to answer them as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, here are some images of some of the product.
Here are some Pants:
CA9 Pant

CA7 Pant

CA5 Pant

CA3 Pant

What's your guys tie with Easton, if you don't mind me asking? Just a coincidence your teams this year had Easton buckets, and a lot of 4 rolls? & The CA7's share a striking resemblance to my S17's.. Just curious! :D

We went with Easton helmets, because they are not in roller hockey. That's about it.

There is plenty of support with our eyelet lacing pattern. We tested 5 different eyelet patterns, and this was the one that all of our testing players loved.

I actually skip the top eyelet on my skates.

Makes sense! I might have to pick up a pair of the CA7's to go with these mitts I'm waiting on from you guys. :D
