AstroTurf Hockey Classic
AstroTurf Hockey Classic – Be legendary!
In 1976 nylon became the first hockey surface to be certified in accordance with FIH Global standards! And it is still the fastest hockey surface in the world.
Its not surprising that alternative systems aim to match the playing characteristics of nylon. Whether you are playing short or long passes, controlling the ball is easy’on this system. Thanks to the high density of the surface and the non-directional characteristics of the yarn, the ball roll is unrivalled. This high predictability results in extremely fast play. We call it the ‘Classic’and the playing performance of our in-house designed classic nylon hockey system lives up to the demands of today’s hockey players. Are you ready to speed up?
