Prevent rear falls
Indentations hidden within the rear contour of the blade involuntary and automatically engage the ice, when the blades slips under the skater to the point that a fall is inevitable.
Based on scientifically tested theories of movement. Newton's 1st physical law of motion; an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by an external force.
The indentations engage the ice (external force) and disrupts the skates forward inertia (constant velocity). This disrupts the angular momentum and rotates the skater forward.
It allows the skater a moment to counteract, realign and stabilize their centre of gravity, thus catching one's balance. When balance is caught, a potential rear fall and injury is prevented.
Interior indentations hidden within the front contour of the blade allow the skater to voluntarily engage the ice surface, to assist with balance and basic skating skills.

What to expect
What parents are saying about Balance Blades
Nick L. on January 3, 2019: "Experience was excellent. I had my 2 yr 4 month old up and moving with no support bar in three days! Excellent and basically eliminated backwards falls."
Matthew V. on December 16, 2018: "My 3 year old improved by leaps and bounds each time he put these on! I would recommend these to every parent teaching their child how to skate. By the third time he put these on he was sipping around the rink. My son is more and more confident each time he steps out on the ice. I’ve recommended these to family and friends with young children. Thank you Balance Blades!"
Danielle Freedman on October 8, 2018: "Just wanted to say thank you for the great product! Got them for our son for his 3rd bday and went skating yesterday! The design of the skates really helped him get his balance he could stand alone and go 4-5 feet by himself. Pretty great for his first time. Looking forward to many more skate sessions and eventually hockey!"
Sarah P. on April 17, 2018: "I am a skating instructor, so my 3 year old begs to go skating with me. We had tried him on regular skates multiple times in the past, but he spent most of his time falling. These have been the best purchase! They have given him the confidence that he can skate on his own and now he chases me all over the ice! I love that Balance Blades has made it so easy for my little guy to love skating and given us a new fun way to spend time together!"
