EDEA “NOENE” Anti-Shock Technology UnderSoles

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.

EDEA through, is now providing a magical solution that actually absorbs, diffuses, and disperses 94% of the shock and impact vibrations of landing jumps from injuring key parts of the body. NOENE Shock Technology , a Swiss technology is being employed by EDEA to absorb, diffuse, disperse and effectively stop up to 94% of the SHOCK and IMPACT VIBRATIONS from the heel to the head.

Skating surfaces (both ice and roller) are hard surfaces that absorb very little if any of the shock of the impact from landing jumps. In fact these shock and impact vibration waves are actually reflected back into the Skaters body to diffuse and absorb them. These waves of energy caused by the collision shock of landing are called kinetic energy or also negative energy. This negative energy can cause long-lasting issues to the nerves that control the free movement of the body. These micro-trauma can show up as pinched nerves, tendinitis, osteitis, and micro fractures to name a few, which can lead to the soreness of the feet, heel spurs, ankles, shin splints, and joint damage and provoke fatigue from the foot through the knees, hips, back, and right up to the base of the skull.

EDEANOENEShock Technology UnderSoles are a Class 1 Medical device, only an extra thin 1mm thick and ultra-light 13 grams of weight (in size 280, approx a men’s size 9), and are to be installed under the EDEA Anatomic InnerSole or custom orthotic innersoles. They can be easily hand washed with soap and lukewarm water and a sponge. The guarantee is 1 year. Even this very thin EDEA UnderSole will provide the shock absorption qualities for which “NOENE” is famous.

The Skater’s instrument is worth gold, take care of it.

Pack of 25, 2.5mm Carbon Fibre Filler Plugs made in Italy from Carbon Fibre rods


The EDEA CARBON FILLER PLUGS are used to fill unused holes when mounting a new blade or repositioning an existing blade.


How to use the Carbon Filler Plugs:

Apply adhesive (usually Marine Epoxy) to the Carbon Filler Plugs, then utilizing needle nose pliers to hold the Carbon Filler Plug, use a small hammer to tap them into the unused holes. The Carbon Filler Plugs are exactly the correct length for the EDEA Footbed After allowing the adhesive to harden, the new holes can be drilled with a 2.0mm (5/64ths”) drill bit. (If there is no hole interference for new hole locations, it is not necessary to fill the unused holes.)

We have added GREAT Ice Skates and Blades!

The Paramount FreeStyle and Dance ICE Skates are NEW Technology Blades for FreeStyle and Dance Ice Skating. These Skates are ideal for Mid to the very Top Level ICE Skaters in both FreeStyle and Dance. The Paramount ICE Blades utilize a Lightweight Aircraft Aluminum Holder with a Very High Quality (8 Element) 440C Stainless (60 RC), (7 Element) 420C Stainless (58 RC), or (1085) Carbon Steel (58RC) Runners. Paramount Ice Blade’s Hollow and Profile is CNC Machined to much higher standards of accuracy, with tighter Blade tolerances than is possible when making and grinding blades by hand. Paramount Ice Skates are Lighter by up to 50% and Stronger due to the Unique Triangular Shaped Frame which increases both Strength and Stiffness and allows Ice Skaters using these Blades to have Higher and Longer Jumps and for Ice Dancers to have Deeper, Faster Edges and Turns. Most other Blades are still made from Carbon Steel (a 16th Century Technology), then brazed together as separate pieces. The High Grade Blade Runner is Stronger and Lighter than Carbon Steel which dramatically increases the life of the Blade and Holds an Edge much longer between Sharpenings.

Combining these Lightweight Paramount ICE Skates with the incredible Lightweight EDEA Skates can reduce the weight of a pair of Ice Skates up to 5 lbs. This level of weight reduction will help your performance.

When mounting to EDEA Skates, the Blade Sizing and Mounting is very consistent for each size and between models, please use the Sizing Chart and Mounting Instructions which are in the Learning Center. When properly Mounted utilizing the EDEA screws, no additional water proofing of the Skates should be necessary.

EDEAEDEA is the Merlo family that started Risport and built thirty years of experience in the skating field. They sold Risport. After a long period of very thorough research and study of the needs of figure skating (both Ice and Roller), they searched for new technologies, concepts, materials, and manufacturing processes to provide solutions which have become the evolutionary “idea”, or EDEA in Italian.

Since 2000, EDEA has been the essence of quality, care and service provided by the artisans and craftsmen of Italia. EDEA is now recognized as a world market leader with many of the best Skaters worldwide praising EDEA Skates for their Comfort, Lightness, Durability, and to top it off, that Beautiful Italian Design and Style.
