Speed and Agility
Have the advantage of SPEED and AGILITY with the FBV®. Using the historic information of the radius of hollow, we have created a shape for your blade that will increase your performance. The FBV keeps the flat portion close to the ice to generate glide on all of the sizes.
By MOVING WIDTH
By increasing and decreasing the WIDTH of the Flat, we are able to manipulate the bite to make it more or less aggressive. This also affects the sensation called ‘purchase’ when stopping.
Try it for Yourself
By manipulating the WIDTH and DEPTH of the Flat Bottom, you can have BOTH – SPEED and AGILITY

With the variety of shapes available, there is a perfect shape for you and your technique.

Try it, I dare you!
By Moving the Depth
The depth of the Flat is available at three different levels. 50 – 75 – 100. The deepest depth, 100, represents 1 thousandths of an inch. Such a small increment is more shallow than any radius of hollow (ROH) available. 75 represents ¾ of a Thou, 50 represents ½ of a Thou

Understanding Traditional Skate Sharpening
Traditional sharpening uses a grinding stone to create a groove or hollow between the edges of the blade. The depth of this hollow determines the performance of the skate and is a matter of individual preference. 

Simply put, the deeper the hollow, the more blade digs into the ice. This creates “bite” but the trade off is that it decreases the ease of your glide. So you basically have to choose between gliding speed and grip.
