Performance Profiling

More and more pro players are paying attention to their profile, realizing that microscopic changes in blade shape make a huge difference to the way their blades feel on the ice.

The profile is the curve of your blade from heel to toe.

Your profile determines your balance point and how much of your blade will be in contact with the ice. It has a dramatic effect on your skating performance.

Performance profiling puts multiple radius curves on one blade — to put more blade in contact with the ice (to gain speed and stability), while also keeping the agility and explosiveness essential to the game of hockey.

The right profile is a personal choice.  The best way to find the profile that is right for you is to try a few. ELITE has the widest selection of profiles available. We can help you find the profile that is perfect for your game and playing style.

Visit one of our performance centers and take our demo profiles out for a test drive.
