Skate Fuel works

Tried out on my 2013 D man and my 2010 Goalie.
Both noticed a difference on the first skate.
Have used it ever since on a weekly basis.

After trying Skate Fuel for the first time I quickly noticed the performance improvement in my edges, cornering and during cross overs. Would definitely recommend to give it a try.

Skate Fuel made a distinct improvement in my edge control. There was much less slippage in corners, resulting in more power, speed and confidence in turning. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their skating.

FAQs

Most commonly asked questions

-
+
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO APPLY IT?

Skate Fuel forms a permanent liquid barrier once applied and
withstands any abuse a skater or ice surface can put it through
without coming off. It only needs to be re-applied after sharpening.

-
+
HOW DO I APPLY IT?

It’s very simple to use. Be certain the skate blade is dry, use the
sponge applicator supplied in the bottom of the box and apply
sparingly to the entire blade on first use. AFTER FIRST SHARPENING, Apply to the bottom and about 5mm on the side of the blade. Let stand for 2-3 minutes and wipe of with a soft cloth provided in package.

-
+
WHAT PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS SHOULD I EXPECT?

Improved cutting and cornering due to reduced drag/friction. The
ice will feel smoother during those times. Why? Because the blade is not going through the ice dry. That means less energy/ muscle strength is required to hold the blade in place. Additionally, glide length and maximum speed duration are realized. When you consider that the skating style of hockey is all about cutting and cornering it adds up to improved endurance or third period legs.

-
+
HOW LONG WILL A JAR OF SKATE FUEL LAST?

Up to 20 applications when used as directed (approximately 3 grams on first use and 1 gram every use there after). May vary depending on skate size, frequency of use, etc.

DOES IT WORK ON BLACK STEEL?

The properties of skate fuel remain the same regardless of the steel whether traditional or the various upgrades of colored steel out there. Skate Fuel is inert and does react adversely or differently with any of the steel types. With black steel, the sides of the blade are coated to help reduce friction. When using skate fuel with black steel apply to the bottom of the blade and just a bit on the lower sides of the blade to start. You can experiment and apply to the entire blade to see what feels the best for the skater. Either way, the combination is going to improve blade performance and skater experience. Be certain to reapply after each sharpening. Many of our customers apply to the bottom of the blade every skate session. Be sure to wipe excess off, no need to try and leave a little bit on the blade as it only requires a micro-thin layer to provide its best performance value. 

-
+
DOES IT WORK ON SYNTHETIC ICE?

At the moment, we have not completed any tests on synthetic ice. We are in the process of testing and hope to have a definitive answer soon.

-
+
DOES IT AFFECT SPARX SKATE SHARPENERS?

Skate Fuel does not negatively impact the typical stones on pro-shop skate sharpening machines. Therefore, we do not believe it would have any negative impact on a Sparx Skate Sharpener. We are looking further into this at the moment.
