Incorporating laser vision, aerospace manufacturing technologies and automated computerized controls, Skatescribe's integrated blade sharpening and profiling gives you:
Many hockey players lend their names to products. Skatescribe is different.
These guys have invested their own money in Skatescribe because they're obsessed with performance and getting you the maximum out of what is your most important piece of equipment - your blades.
With manual hand sharpening, a skate’s profile will get progressively worse each time it is sharpened. Two common shapes that result are:
Banana blades reduce the amount of blade to ice contact making it more difficult to produce power from your strides
Flat spot in the center of the blade makes transitioning to different sections of the blade difficult
Skatescribe is the only service that enables you to customize the hollow, pitch and radius of your blades simultaneously, to any specification within a micron of accuracy, every time. Our I.S.P. technology enables you to skate better by matching your blades to your body's natural biomechanics. With Skatescribe you no longer have to re-adjust your skating after each sharpening to match the deficiencies in your blades created by inferior blade service.
With a full choice of hollows, we are able to maximize your skating performance. We can customize your hollow giving you the most amount of glide without jeopardizing your acceleration.
We can cut your radius to suit your biomechanics and playing style. Need more agility in the corners? We can shorten up the radius. Need more speed? We can give you a larger radius. Since our machine cuts accurately to the micron, you get more precision with fewer compromises, everytime.
We can customize your balance point giving you more control and comfort on the ice. If you want to be pitched forward on your toes, we recommend starting at a 5% pitch. If you want a more centred balance point for skating backwards, we recommend starting at a 0% pitch. We'll help you determine what works best and you can modify your pitch anytime you want.
