Speed and Agility
Have the advantage of SPEED and AGILITY with the FBV®. Using the historic information of the radius of hollow, we have created a shape for your blade that will increase your performance. The FBV keeps the flat portion close to the ice to generate glide on all of the sizes.
Try it for Yourself
By manipulating the WIDTH and DEPTH of the Flat Bottom, you can have BOTH – SPEED and AGILITY

With the variety of shapes available, there is a perfect shape for you and your technique.

Try it, I dare you!
By MOVING THE WIDTH
By increasing and decreasing the WIDTH of the Flat, we are able to manipulate the bite to make it more or less aggressive. This also affects the sensation called ‘purchase’ when stopping.
By MOVING THE DEPTH
The depth of the Flat is available at three different levels. 50 – 75 – 100. The deepest depth, 100, represents 1 thousandths of an inch. Such a small increment is more shallow than any radius of hollow (ROH) available. 75 represents ¾ of a Thou, 50 represents ½ of a Thou

FLAT BOTTOM V®

How the Radius of Hollow transforms into the Flat Bottom V®
  1. Take the depth of the hollow and make it as close to the ice as possible
  2. Create solid, straight, travel points from the edge of the blade to the bottom of the shape
  3. Determine the perfect combination of width and depth for the skater’s desired bite
  4. The skater enjoys the benefits!
