How do I know what ice skates to buy
There are three main categories of ice sports: figure skating, hockey and speed skating. Each sport has different needs for skates, so we should first clarify which sport we are, so as to better choose the suitable skates.
A skate blade suitable for hockey events. Ice hockey is highly antagonistic and suitable for skates with short blade and large arc. Such a skate can ensure flexible movement, timely change of direction and quick stop.
Figure skating is difficult. It is suitable for skates with radians, wide blades and grooves in the middle. Such a skate is convenient for rotation. The cutter teeth in front of the cutter are convenient for taking off and falling ice.
Speed skating mainly requires fast speed. Therefore, ice skates need a long body and a narrow and flat blade. This reduces friction and is suitable for constant acceleration.
