Free Blade Analysis
Get your Skates Checked. New or used skates are not necessarily sharpened and profiled to the skater. To reduce risk of injury and to ensure your skates will provide you with the maneuverability you should have them checked for proper profile and alignment. Proper sharpening, blade mounting, alignment and profile determine the center of gravity, body posture, body compensations and physical stress. All these affect the skating style, speed, stops, starts and a hockey players stick handling as well as a figure skaters jumping and landing.
Skaters should be in control of their skates, not the skates controlling the skater. Each and every skate sharpened under the MAXIMUM EDGE process undergoes a rigorous inspection where we check for square and damaged edges.
Combined with our skate profiling system, we can optimize the skate based on the skater’s skill level, weight, height, position which all affect skating style, speed, stops, starts, jumps, landings and stick handling.
