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 proper control and maneuverability you should have them checked for proper profile and alignment.

Proper sharpening, blade mounting, alignment and profile determine the skater’s center of gravity, body posture, body compensations and physical stress. All these affect the skating style, speed, stops, starts and a hockey player’s stick handling as well as a figure skater’s jumps and landings.

NUFF SAID!


ABOUT SKATE SHARPENING!

Skate Sharpeners tend to give deep hollows to compensate for uneven, misaligned or non-profiled skates. Good skate sharpeners may be able to give you a level sharpening.
GREAT SKATE SHARPENERS will give you a consistent level sharpening, will not unnecessarily erode the blade away and have working knowledge of how the skate and skater interacts with the ice. Visit a Maximum Edge Member near you.

did you know?

Don't leave your skates in a car or unheated garage. Bring them inside. Water and moisture from condensation expands when frozen and will damage holders, boots and cause blades to rust. If you have plastic guards, remove and clean them.
