Metal Composition of the Coronation Ace Blade
Carbon Spring Steel
The benefits of John Wilson's Spring Steel Memory
- Rigorous 6X Hardening & tempering practices
- 55 Step process to ensure every blade is the best it can possibly be
- The finest spring steel allows for just enough flex while always returning to its original shape
Toe Pick / Toe Rake Configuration (Teeth & spikes at front of blade)
The benefits of a Cross-Cut Pick
The Cross-Cut Pick allows skaters to grip the top layers of the ice as opposed to digging down deeper than a straight cut style. Will grip the ice better with less sliding, works well for skaters wanting a quicker rotation initiation.
Rocker Radius (Rocker radius refers to the rear part of the blade used for gliding and stroking)
The benefits of an 8FT Rocker
The Coronation Ace blade is more curved with less surface contact with the ice. What does this mean in terms of performance? A smaller radius is better for deeper edges, smoother turns and agility.
