,,Sooner or later, all things get to the point where they can’t come with no surprise. This is even true for hockey.
One would think that no one could come up with a new, unique idea anymore; they have already figured out, explained, described everything, one trainer more confident than the other.
But there are those rare days, unique occasions when the ice shows something that cannot be described. Which surprises you.
That changes everything. You can't be getting ready for it, when you put your life on this sport, but you have to trust to recognize it when you have seen it."
(Fredrik Backman: Björnstad)
Everybody knows some things are impossible until somebody, who doesn`t know come along and invents it.
IDEA - PHYSICS - RESULTS
,,If it works at skiing, why it wouldn’t work at skating? ”
In the last 100 years of development of modern skates, XCBlade has been the first and only one skate blade that breaks the limits of parallel edge design.
With the adaption of the variable 2D edge geometry into 3D from the carving skiing, it takes skating to a higher level, increasing the stability of high-speed, tight turns.
XCBlade, like the Carved / Carving / Parabolic skis, is therefore not a permanent, but a variable-width skating blade that forms a well-defined 3D geometric shape.
Thus, unlike all other currently available blades, XCBlade is NOT a parallel-edge skating blade, but the left and right edges of the blade gradually extend and extend from the center, parallel section moving away from each other into direction front and rear of the blade.
This change in width is different in the front and rear, greater in the rear region of the blade, which is responsible for stability, and smaller in the first region, which is responsible for acceleration.
The result of this controlled expansion is that in skating situations (final phase of the pushing phase, tight and sharp turns, intense braking), where conventional blades lose their contact with the ice due to increased inclination, there, the XCBlade blades are still firmly attached to the ice surface, thanks to the widening edge design, XCBlade engages the ice with 5-20% larger blade sections.
XCBLADE AS A PRODUCT
The XCBlade blade family is simply: "That’s, what changes everything!"
XCBlade is a newest, innovative, patented asymmetric 3D curved skating blade for the„top-speed” hockey of the 21st century, using XCBlade give’s a real advantage in the fierce competition for seconds.
XCBlade 3D Edge Design provides up to 5-20% increase in speed and stability in acceleration, cornering, crowning, tight turns, braking, forward and backward, while the efficiency of straight skating won’t be reduced.
The XCBlade's asymmetrical 3D edge design optimally follows the different curves of left and right skates, making better use of the player's motion energy, saving significant energy for the crucial moments of the match!
XCBlade's asymmetrical 3D edge design allows players to balance strong / weak sides.
Various standard versions of the XCBlade blade family (SmallCurve, MediumCurve, LargeCurve, XlargeCurve) provide options to choose the blade with the best curvature for the player's position (offensive, defensive, freestyle like CrashedIce), for player’s skating style and even for the quality of the ice.
The XCBlade blades are fully customizable on demand.
This customisation (beyond the color selection and / or name of the player) means - after anatomical and skating analysis of the player's movement - the outer and inner edges of the left and right blades and edge curves can be almost in infinite versions individually configured and produced with 5D CNC manufacturing technology to an accuracy of up to 0.001mm.
XCBlade skate blades are manufactured from high-alloyed stainless steel, with CNC laser cutter and 5D CNC machining technology, they are heat treated, grinded and polished, and then coated with the most advanced DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) or PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating in the tooling industry for maximum quality and service life.
The XCBlade product family represents such a newest technology and premium quality on the market, wich can be compared only in price level with competitors, not in its advantages.
XCBlade will be available soon in all sizes and for all types of blade holders.
The XCBlade blades can be resharpened without any problem, modification, reworking or retraining of the traditional sharpening machines.
The development of the XCBlade skate blade began in 2012, the product is result of thousands of engineering, technology and test hours and is now protected by a worldwide patent.
