1. 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 only suitable for 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.
