Types of Geometry

 Pikatec Nanoblade 4.5 2WL 

This geometry is significantly faster and more agile than regular blades. The edges of all Pikatec Nanoblade geometries have the same sharpness. The blade is about 4 mm higher than conventional blades, and the sharp edges allow a greater incline in turns. The surfaces of the grooves are widened from 3 mm to almost 4.5 mm, thus changing the physical mechanisms of skating. We recommend this geometry for all hockey players as the first geometry for a transition to blades with a nano-groove. Hockey players generally get used to these blades very quickly!

For whom is this geometry suitable:

Especially hockey players transitioning from regular blades to blades with a nano-groove.

What to keep in mind and watch out for:

  • When you first step onto the ice, you will feel as if the blades were dull. The blades will immediately start to glide, and if they are aligned perpendicular to the ice, they will begin to slide laterally. This is how it should be! But as soon as you push off from the edge, you will feel the acceleration, you will find that you don't need as much effort, and in turns on an incline, you will feel that the edge holds you up perfectly. Keep trying, and soon you'll realize that you can do much more in turns and in stops than with a standard groove. Notice how you can glide through turns silently, without grinding and flying ice. Then you can start "playing" with lateral gliding.
  • Turns, even repeated turns one after the other, must be entered with correct skating technique, with pressure on the toes (like carving)! For this purpose, the skates need to be loose at the angle in the front (leave one to two lace holes open). If you enter a turn incorrectly ("on your heels"), the geometry will carry you into a slightly larger arc.
  • It takes some skaters time to get used to the higher blade; it may especially bother them a bit when doing crossovers in turns. But this feeling generally subsides after the first training.
  • Get used to the speed; you approach obstacles much faster than you've been used to so far! You can stop very quickly before the boards, and you can quickly and effortlessly change direction (even on one leg), but you have to get used to it. Many skaters have confirmed that they "spaced out", suddenly finding themselves near the goal. On the other hand, improved agility and the stability of the edge make the blades safer than blades with conventional sharpening.

 Pikatec Nanoblade 4.5 2ML 

This geometry is even faster than the WL geometry. The edges of all Pikatec Nanoblade geometries have the same sharpness. The blade is about 4 mm higher than conventional blades, and the sharp edges allow a greater incline in turns. The surfaces of the grooves are widened from 3 mm to almost 4.5 mm, thus changing the physical mechanisms of skating. We recommend this geometry for all hockey players as the next geometry to move on to after gaining experience with the nano-groove and the S, W or WL geometry. Hockey players should already be experienced in skating with a nano-groove, otherwise it will take a few training sessions to get used to. At first use, the blades may seem a bit less agile, but skaters need to learn to skate in turns and get used to them.

For whom is this geometry suitable::

Especially hockey players who have experience with skating with a nano-groove.

What to keep in mind and watch out for:

  • If you have no experience with a nano-groove, when you first step onto the ice you will feel as if the blades were dull. The blades will immediately start to glide, and if they are aligned perpendicular to the ice, they will begin to slide laterally. This is how it should be! But as soon as you push off from the edge, you will feel the acceleration, you will find that you don't need as much effort, and if you turn on an incline, you will feel that the edge holds you up perfectly.

If you enter the turn incorrectly ("on your heels"), the geometry will carry you into a slightly larger arc.
  • It takes some skaters time to get used to the higher blade; it may especially bother them a bit when doing crossovers in turns. But this feeling generally completely subsides after the first training.
  • As mentioned above, skaters will initially feel that the blades are less agile, and they must learn to turn with them. It just takes some getting used to, and you will be rewarded with increased speed on ice.
  • Get used to the speed; you approach obstacles much faster than you've been used to so far! You can stop very quickly before the boards, and you can quickly and effortlessly change direction (even on one leg), but you have to get used to it.

Pikatec Nanoblade 5.0 L7WL (Light) 

Great things can be done with this geometry, but it is most true for this geometry that the skater should already have experience with nano-groove blades, otherwise they will not suit him at first. The edges of all Pikatec Nanoblade geometries have the same sharpness. The blade is about 10 mm higher than conventional blades, and the sharp edges allow a greater incline in turns. The holes in the high blades (Light) make them significantly lighter, increasing the skater's agility. These high blades are just as heavy as lower blades that are not lightened. The surfaces of the grooves are widened from 3 mm to almost 5 mm, thus changing the physical mechanisms of skating. We recommend this geometry for all hockey players as the next geometry to move on to after gaining experience with the nano-groove and the S, W or WL geometry, and preferably ML. The hockey player should already have experience with skating with a nano-groove, because there are plenty of changes in this case that the skater must get used to. At first use, the blades may seem a bit less agile and very high in crossovers, but the skater needs to learn to skate in turns and do crossovers.

For whom is this geometry suitable:

Especially hockey players who have experience with skating with a nano-groove; the goal here was not for skaters to get used to blades other than standard blades, but to allow hockey players to perform great maneuvers on the ice. That requires time and getting used to.

What to keep in mind and watch out for:

  • If you have no experience with a nano-groove, when you first step onto the ice you will feel as if the blades were dull. The blades will immediately start to glide, and if they are aligned perpendicular to the ice, they will begin to slide laterally. This is how it should be! But as soon as you push off from the edge, you will feel the acceleration, you will find that you don't need as much effort, and if you turn on an incline, you will feel that the edge holds you up perfectly.

For this purpose, the skates need to be loose at the angle in the front (leave one to two lace holes open). If you enter the turn incorrectly ("on your heels"), the geometry will carry you into a slightly larger arc.
  • At first, all skaters need to get used to the extremely raised blade, which may especially bother them when doing crossovers in turns. This may take several hours.
  • As mentioned above, the skater will initially feel that the blades are less agile; the first impression may be strange. It just takes some getting used to, and once you do, you will be rewarded with increased speed and agility on ice.
  • Get used to the speed; you approach obstacles much faster than you've been used to so far! You can stop very quickly before the boards, and you can quickly and effortlessly change direction (even on one leg), but you have to get used to it.

 Pikatec Nanoblade 5.0 GK (Light)

goalkeeper geometries GK have excellent agility and speed properties. Goalkeepers usually "fight" with two characteristics: they need quick lateral movement, but the edge of the blades prevents them from doing so. Some goalkeepers even dull the edges to allow them to move quicker. The Pikatec nano-groove allows the combination of both properties: very sharp edges and excellent lateral movement properties. So far, all goalkeepers have praised the nano-groove for not straining their groin as much. The holes in the high blades (Light) make them significantly lighter, increasing the skater's agility. These high blades are just as heavy as lower blades that are not lightened.

The height of the blade, which is about 10 mm higher than standard blades, allows them to do wide splits, and when the blades are aligned perpendicular to the ice, the skates move from side to side with no effort. When the goalkeeper needs to stop, all he needs to do is tilt the edge slightly to the side and the blade will immediately stop him.

What to keep in mind and watch out for:

  • If you have no experience with a nano-groove, when you first step onto the ice you will feel as if the blades were dull. The blades will immediately start to glide, and if they are aligned perpendicular to the ice, they will begin to slide laterally. That's how it should be, that's what you need! But as soon as you push off from the edge, you will feel the acceleration, you will find that you don't need as much effort, and if you turn on an incline, you will feel that the edge holds you up perfectly.
  • Try out different maneuvers and splits to find out what the blades will let you do.
  • You will be much faster when you need to come out of the goal, for example.
  • Dozens of goalkeepers of different ages and weights tested the blades, and unlike some skaters, none of them complained of initially unpleasant properties.
