Prevent Rear Falls
Indentations hidden within the rear contour of the blade involuntary and automatically engage the ice, when the blades slip under the skater to the point that a fall is inevitable.
Its simple physics based on scientific principles of movement, Newton's 1st 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 disrupt the skates forward inertia (constant velocity). This suspends 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 may be prevented.
Indentations hidden within the front contour of the blade allow the skater to voluntarily engage the ice surface, to assist with balance, natural skating stride and basic skating skills.
Standing up from the ice.
Standing in one spot.
Wider Flatter Middle
Balance Blades skates enables a child to learn to skate with proper technique. The skate assists the child to balance in the middle of the skate during the entire learn to skate process.
More blade contact with ice surface.
Even distribution of weight.
4 Sizes in 1 Adjustable Skate
Balance Blades are adjustable and have a range of sizes in order to fit the child throughout the learning process. As children's feet grow fast, it's an affordable option that allows a child to use the skate for multiple years.
Adjustable shell that expands to 4 sizes.
Good for up to 4 seasons.
Sizes (8 youth to 11y) and (12 y to 2 junior).
Parents place 'training wheels' on their child's bicycle to keep them safe and assist them while they learn to ride a bike. The 'training wheels 'are removed to complete the transition process.
Balance Blades are similar, the skate may be transformed from a 'training blade' to a regular blade through sharpening when your child's skating skills have progressed.
The indentations on the front and rear of the blade can slowly be reduced during regular sharpening throughout 3 transitional stages as your child's skating skills improve.
