In-Store Service Skate Fitting
Step 1 - Proper Skate Selection
In Hockey Locker we offer many models and types of skates made by the leading manufactures. However, this doesn't mean that all of them would be the right fit for you. In order to find the skates that can truly unleash your full potential we will first have to evaluate the built and size of your foot. Only after that we can narrow down the selection of skates that offer you proper fit and maximum comfort.
Step 2 - Skate Baking
After you already selected your dream pair of skates we can further customize the way they fit you in the process called "skate baking". Depending on type and model of skate boot they are placed in the special skate oven for certain amount of time in order to break them in and fully adjust to the shape of your feet.
All our staff members have expertise to help you select the best skates available.
In-Store Service Skate Profiling (Contouring)
Skate profiling (also called contouring or rockering) is a proven process that allows you to determine exactly how much blade is in contact with the ice surface. More blade contact provides faster speeds and stability while less allows better maneuvering and acceleration.
The additional part of skate profiling is adjusting the factory pitch or lie of the blade. This primarily affects balance and control but also can impact other areas like responsiveness, smoothness of the stride, and even accuracy of passing and shooting.
The proper Radius and Pitch adjustment will not only improve your skating and your hockey game but will greatly reduce the risk of injuries. On the contrary, a blade shape that is not optimized for your style or stance can cause muscle fatigue, reduced skating efficiency, less balance, and power while shooting.
