What is Skate Profiling
Skate Profiling changes the contact points of your blade with the ice, utilising 1, 2, 3, or 4 distinct zones along the length of the blade, ensuring you are getting the very best from your skate. Profiling is suitable for both figure and hockey blades.
Skate Profiling customises the contact points of the blade to suit your specific skating style and positional play. A longer profile (13-foot, for example) provides more blade contact with the ice. Providing more resistance to lateral movement and greater stability, but sacrifices some manoeuvrability.
A longer profile also creates potential for faster acceleration and greater speed with less effort. Whilst these trade offs can seem daunting they are key to improving your presence on the ice, profiling is a key weapon utilised by professional skaters all over the world.
