Feature Product – Bladetech Hockey

With our exciting news of collaborating with Bladetech Hockey being one of our “Feature Product” HockeyNeeds will like to provide an in-depth look at their amazing innovative hockey blades, which are being used around the world by professional hockey players – To help give that extra speed boost.

 

 

In 2013, Jeff Azzolin, a University of Waterloo Engineering student analyzed the hockey skate market and realized the only technological advancement was in the boot. The blades and holders were all exactly the same, no matter if you were paying $100 or $1,000. He wanted to discover how he could create a better skate by looking at the holder/blade relationship.

 

He created his first prototype a spring-loaded blade.  This led to the creation of Flex Force Advantage – The only blades that have scientifically proven to give a speed boost.

WHAT IS THE FLEX FORCE ADVANTAGE?

Bladetech Hockey’s patented technology has been rigorously tested in the lab to ensure it provides the highest performance compared to non-flexible blades. The results speak for themselves! See test results here.

ADVANTAGE #1 – INCREASES SPEED AND ACCELERATION

Flex Force works similar to a hockey stick flex: the front third of the blade bends during a player’s stride whips back and releases the vertical energy usually lost into a more powerful skating stride.  Our testing shows a 25% increase in force and an average of 5.5% increase in speed.

ADVANTAGE #2 – REDUCES IMPACT PRESSURE ON KNEES

Flex Force also works to cushion the impact pressure players feel in their shins, knees and backs just as a good running shoe cushion the impact of every step.

BLADETECH HOCKEY USES THE HIGHEST QUALITY STEEL

Having a winning technology doesn’t mean anything without the highest quality material. It is crucial that every blade Bladetech Hockey produces is made with the best materials possible.

Bladetech’s hockey skate blades are known to hold their edge longer between sharpens. This is all backed by an industry-leading 365-day warranty.
