Easton Mako History and Background:base1

Eaton Mako has been on of the industry leader for over 30 years, Easton Baseball/Softball has continued to raise the bar with innovation, originality and ingenuity.  It started in 1969, when Easton produced the first true aluminum bat, and has continued throughout the past three decades with virtually all significant industry “firsts” having been pioneered by Easton:

first CU31 bat; first C405 bat; first titanium bat; first Carbon Core bat; first Scandium bat any many other.

The tireless Work

This unique trend continues today with bats such as the Tri-Shell and the ConneXion. The patented Tri-Shell design features a super elastic rubber sleeve sandwiched in between thin outer shells for unparalleled performance, feel, and durability.
The patented ConneXion design takes a separate handle and barrel piece and mechanically interlocks them using a ConneXion” elastomer piece for outstanding flex, feel, performance, and vibration reduction.

In april of 2002, Easton introduced the Tri-Shell ConneXion, merging the technological advancements of the two bats into one.

The bats are just a part of Easton’s Mako Baseball/Softball product stable. Easton Mako carries a wide range of high-performance baseball and softball equipment including ball gloves and batting gloves, sport bags and other accessories.

Advance Research & Development

The Mako Sports Lab, located in Van Nuys, is one of the most unique testing facilities in the sporting goods industry. Originally established to study the parameters of Easton equipment, it has evolved into a lab that not only tests equipment performance, but human performance as well.

This Lab has become an invaluable tool with which Easton engineers continue to create superior products.

As an example of their unique testing was proven when the Easton Sports Lab teamed up with tent manufacturer Sierra Designs to invent sensors and integrated software to test a state of-the-art tent design that is supported by Easton E9 tubing in the most extreme weather conditions.

In real mountain tests, with the wind blowing up to 100 mph, Sports Lab technicians were able to record the stress on the tubing to confirm its durability and strength.

At Easton Mako, most of the designers are also athletes in the sport in which they innovate and design product based on their own experience. The two-piece aluminum Easton hockey stick, for example, was developed by a designer with a passion for hockey. He developed a design that would in time become the number 1 hockey stick in the hockey world.
