The Fiberlite Air X comes equipped with an Air X Head, featuring the same spring lock system for quick head replacement, and pad snap system that facilitates quick and easy pad replacement as the Air Head. The Air X Head features a 16% increase in the surface area, which is more effective when sweeping for weight.
The biggest factor that impacts curling broom pricing is the material in the handle, which determine the stiffness and weight of the broom. The Fiberlite's composite handles are mid-range. They are lighter than the basic FG models, which are made from Fiberglass, but heavier than the 100% Carbon Fiber top-of-the-line alternative. The addition of carbon fiber makes for a stiffer alternative to an FG handle, meaning that more of your force is directed into the ice resulting in a more effective sweeping tool.
If you find yourself playing in an event or league that requires WCF compliant brooms, simply swap your Airway X Pad out for our WCF approved Air Pro X Pad, and your Fiberlite Air X broom will be fully compliant.
