With Viking speedskates at most distances gold is won at the Olympics in Pyeongchang once again proved, over all distances, sprint and allround.
We ensure that your speedskates are top, so that you can deliver your best performance.
Polishing aims to sharpen the blades and to reduce the resistance on the ice as much as possible.
Before we do this we check if the blades are perfectly straight. If this is not the case, we will straighten the blades first.
Making blades straight; we name it straightening in speedskating terms. We make sure that your blades are perfectly straight.
With straight irons you are able to develop more speed.
Some speedskaters ride with a bending in their skates. Also we can provide for this up to 1/1000 of a mm.
The curve in the blades makes it possible to control the blades on the ice.
This provides the basis for a good speedskating technique and the feeling on the ice.
The curve may differ for each skater and is adjusted to the weight of the skater, the stiffness of the blade, and the technique of the skater.
Especially the path traveled by the skate during the push is important.
The rounder the blade, the more the skate steers. A rider who places his skate more on the outside and therefore controls the skate more to the outer,
will need more curve to return fully.
In addition, the ice quality is of influence on the choice of the curve.
When the ice is softer, the skate sinks a little in the ice and you need more curve to steer properly.
On hard ice you need less curve in the blades. We tailor the curve to the purpose of the skater, the skating technique and the ice conditions.
To this end, we have high-precision equipment.
Also, a variable rockering belongs to the possibilities. Make sure you have a good curve in your blades.
This also applies to young children.
If the basis is not good, one can not learn the technique properly.
Before the race, we can prepare the speedskates prior to a competition, but also for the tour skater we have this service.
Of course we also take care of replacing springs, pins, dampers, spindles etc. We bend, do rockering and polishing for long track speed skating
and also for short track.
To this end, we have a wide variety of curvemodels in store.

Free Skate: perfectly suited for natural ice.
These blades are equipped with the latest gadgets. More pressure is realized from the boots on the blades by means of special plastic plates under the bindings between boots and blades. We recommend for skating on the 400-meter track special inner soles which add stability, especially in the corners. Moreover, we can put a precision-camber in these blades for the icetrack. In this way, Free Skate skates are optimized for skating on the 400-meter track.

We open again on September 6th but you can make an appointment already with us for your son or daughter who wants to participate this season in youth speedskating. We first fit the boots accurately to determine the correct size moldable speedskating boots, subsequently the boots go in a oven for about 15 minutes. Then the heated boots are put on and we mold the boots vacuum until they have cooled down. In this way, the boots offer optimum support without causing pressure spots.
