There is a proud history to this highly competitive, physically demanding sport for elite and recreational players alike. It’s been nearly a century since the modern hockey skate was invented.
Throughout hockey history, no one has ever changed the basic shape of the hockey skate blade itself.
It is transforming the hockey world as we know it, setting the new standard in performance: exceptional.
With over a decade of extensive Research and Development, our blades have been tested again and again by hockey players at all levels, including the pros.
An independent study conducted by the Human Performance Laboratory at the University of Calgary sought to investigate the difference in performance of the Flare Skate Blade versus traditional skate blades, focusing on friction, acceleration, speed, glide, and turns.
Flare Skate Blades reduced friction by 20.6% versus standard skate blades
Performance was increased in every agility test (acceleration, maximum speed, and glide turns), with an average improvement of 5.6%
After 5 weeks of testing, all subjects preferred the Flare Skate Blade to their original blades, and all said they would buy the Flare Skate Blade over traditional skate blades
Because the angle of the Flare Skate Blade increases the width of the blades where the steel meets the ice, a hollow adjustment is required.
We suggest the hollow be adjusted to the following Hollow Conversion Chart.
