Why are EDEA Skates so Special?

1. Ultra Light-Weight

The lightest figure skating boot in the world

lightweight_feather Ice Learning Center

EDEA is lighter than any other figure skating boot due to the new materials and technologies used in the Skates. EDEA Skates are 20% to 32% lighter than other manufacturers “light” boots and up to almost 50% lighter when comparing them to the standard high strength boots. Just think about the extra time in the air to complete or increase your spins. Also with less weight in the skate as a whole, the skater can accelerate faster with their free leg in jumps such as the axel, double axel, or triple axel.

EDEA “NOENE” Anti-Shock Technology UnderSoles

AntiShockUnderSole-crop Ice Learning Center EDEA presents the world’s first Shock Absorbing UnderSole for Skaters (both Ice and Roller)

The competition among competitive Skaters is becoming tougher with more and harder jumps and jump combinations being trained earlier and for a longer period of time through the skating career. This training to compete at a higher level, earlier has become much more intense. This level of training intensity can lead to additional stress in the head, neck, back, hips, knees, ankles, and heels due to the repeated impact of the landings.

Care and Use of Your EDEA Skating Boots

Ice-Roller-01 Ice Learning Center

Lacing the Skating Boots

Loosen the Laces ALL the way down to the Bottom EVERY Time you take your skates OFF.

Loosening the Laces will take the pressure off of the boot and avoid the chance of misshaping the boot. If the Laces are not loosened each time they are removed, the cumulative effect is the drawing of the boot together, making it tighter and tighter at the laces. This will narrow the ball and toe box areas of the boot, cause a pucker or bubble like bump at the base of the laces and will ultimately make it tighter each time the skates are laced up. Add to this condition the leaving of the Skates in a hot car, on a hot summer day, and you have reshaped your boots.

Fitting and sizing EDEA Skates

NewFly-Energy-PantherLight-b-crop-800 Ice Learning Center

The boot for Skating is a technical tool, hence the fitting has to be very accurate.

A correct size boot assures the comfort and enhances the Skating Performance.

The non-correct size boot causes severe problems to your feet and can hamper your Skating efforts.

EDEA Boot Sizes are in millimeters, in steps of 5 millimeters per size, for maximum accuracy. (5 millimeters is slightly less than 1/4″, 10 millimeters or 1 centimeter is slightly less than 1/2″.)

Paramount Sk8s Informational Videos

Manufacturing

“Paramount blades are made from a one piece, T shaped extrusion, which is much stronger than silver solder or brazing pieces together.”

Sharpening and Leveling

“It may not be the skaters skill keeping them from their best performance, but the accuracy of their equipment.”

Blade Profiles

“Every skater should know that any change to the profile will affect their jumps and spins.” 

Lift Angles

“A higher lift angle will result in a skater having an increased ability to spin and jump.”
