Great product

I took a bit of time to write this review. I wanted to have time to really test the product out. After almost 2 months here are my thoughts. You will notice an improvement in glide and snow build up. Interestinly I have had to reduce my radius while using it. I was getting pretty noticable chatter with the radius I have used for the last 2 years, 100/75 (I know, I like rediculous bite). For thoes who don't speak FBV, 100/75 is equivalent to 3/8" ROH, and I moved to 90/75 (~5/8" equivalent). With skate fuel the 90/75 feels as good, or better, to me than a 100/75 without skate fuel. Long story short when I run out I will already have more on order.

For reference I'm just an old man playing beer league hockey.

Skate fuel made my edge work effortless. I was able to trim down my hollow of my blade and the bite of the blade was even better than before I had reduced it. It definitely gives me a competitive advantage on the ice. I play in the ACAC league and was the rookie of the year and on the first all Star conference team..

Addicted To Skate Fuel!

So easy, so effective! I am a professional power skating coach and not only will I continue to use Skate Fuel, I will recommend it to all of my skaters! My skaters that are already using Skate Fuel agree that we are addicted and notice a clear difference when we don't have Skate Fuel on our blades ... we are all addicted! The way our edge holds a smoother glide and the extra efficiency I feel with Skate Fuel will go unmatched!! Thank you Skate Fuel for creating such an amazing product!

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.
