How to choose the skate shoes that suit you? In response to this problem, Gaoxin Industry and Trade Co., Ltd. pointed out that before choosing skates, consumers should first determine what kind of ice sports they want to engage in. At present, skating events are mainly divided into three categories, namely figure skating, ice hockey and speed skating. Different items have different ice skates and skates. In order to enhance the understanding of consumers, today the skateboard wheel manufacturers introduced the characteristics of various ice skates and skates in detail:
1. Speed skating shoes: Speed skating is characterized by fast sliding speed. Therefore, the skates suitable for this project have a long blade body and a narrow and flat blade. This is to reduce the frictional resistance between the skater’s footsteps and the ice surface. In addition, the waist of the skate is relatively short, which is convenient for lowering the center of gravity of the skater and reducing air resistance.
2. Ice hockey: Ice hockey is a highly antagonistic event and requires participants to have good protection measures. Therefore, skates suitable for ice hockey have a hard toe, a high waist and a thick upper. The blade body of this type of skate is relatively short and has a large arc, so that the skater can move flexibly and change the sliding direction on the ice surface.
3. Figure skating shoes: Figure skating is characterized by difficult movements and high requirements for stability. Therefore, skates suitable for figure skating have a wide blade and a groove in the middle part, and the blade has an arc for rotation and various steps. In addition, the front of the blade of this type of skate has teeth, which is convenient for the skater to take off or drop the ice. The waist of the shoe is hard and high, and the purpose is to protect the skater’s ankle joint when doing difficult movements. Under normal circumstances, beginners are suitable for figure skating shoes.
