"The EDGE" Skating Treadmill
"The EDGE" is the leader of its class. This state of the art machine is the best skating treadmill in the world. The skating surface is 7 ft wide by 6 ft long. The surface is a UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weighted) Plastic. We coat this surface with a silicone cover that is easy on the skates and feels just like ice. With proper instruction, you can create positive muscle memory ingraining strong technique that will stay with you forever. The force of the UHMW moving toward our skaters will make it difficult to skate on at first. You can compare this feeling to swimming against a current, however, once the body builds enough strength and it gains more comfort on the EDGE, the players are taken to a whole new level of speed and explosive power. Shooting and stickhandling while skating on the EDGE is the ultimate challenge. The EDGE will not allow skaters to stop their feet while passing, shooting or performing the many puck handling moves that we challenge our players with. This cutting edge piece of technology is the best in the skating treadmill world today. We personally guarantee that any player that trains within our system will improve their game faster than they have ever experienced!
