Contouring (also commonly referred to as profiling) is the process of shaping skate blades to maximize turning ability, skating posture and overall balance.
Our unique blade contouring process modifies three areas of your skate blades to make skating more efficient for all players at any age and any level. Blade contouring promotes ideal stride length, skating posture and overall balance.
A correct blade radius for your skill set, playing style and position will allow you to stay better balanced, turn with precision and stability and pivot fluidly for more seamless strides.
An appropriate blade pitch/lie will put you in the ideal skating position at all times - knees bent, body weight slightly forward, arms drawn in front of you. This is important for backward and forward skating for both defensemen and forwards.
An accurately determined balance point allows you to reach the toe area of your blades for quicker acceleration and pivots. It also promotes overall balance while turning and battling for the puck.
To select the most appropriate blade shape we require the player's age, height, weight, level of play and position played. We would also like to know if the skater is experiencing difficulty stopping, achieving balance or posture issues such leaning too far forward or skating too upright. Gathering this information takes less than five minutes and allows us to accurately select the most beneficial radius setting.
This procedure will also benefit goalies too.
The revolutionary new FBV (Flat Bottom V) skate sharpening system gives you competitive advantages like you’ve never experienced before. Superior endurance. Greater power. Enhanced agility. Better control.
Traditional sharpening uses a grinding stone to create a groove or hollow between the edges of the blade. The depth of this hollow determines the performance of the skate and is a matter of individual preference.
Simply put, the deeper the hollow, the more blade digs into the ice. This creates “bite” but the trade off is that it decreases the ease of your glide. So you basically have to choose between gliding speed and grip.
FBV™ eliminates the need to choose one benefit over the other, with a breakthrough architecture designed for the perfect blend of speed and agility. The flat bottom shape of the blade allows the skate to glide across the top of the ice rather than cut through it. This reduces drag and helps increase speed. At the same time, the precision edges are ready to dig in and provide precise control on turns and stops.
Stop in today and give the FBV Sharpening a try, won't be disappointed!
