In the speedskating season 2016-2017 Viking released a new speedskate, the Viking Sapphire.
This new speedskate combines a rigid tube with a PM blade and is intended mainly for the sprint distances.
The tubes have a beautiful sapphire blue color.
The Viking Sapphire Plus has a tube that is 0.5 inches longer.
For example, instead of a 40/41 bridge with a 16.5 tube, a Viking Sapphire Plus with a 40/41 bridge and a 17.0 inch tube is available.
The Viking Sapphire Plus is delivered at an additional cost.
