Viking Short Track…NEW!!

With the introduction of the Blazr and Fury models, Viking brings a nice new total package of short track blades.

Following the  Matrix,  the super stiff model for the real muscleman, now the  Blazr  follows up; a versatile and easy to manage skate with a smooth flex.

As if that were not enough there also is the  Fury  blade which, like all new models, is available in both standard and flat top. The flat top for even that little bit more flex. 

In short, 3 great newcomers and 6 flavors to choose from.

Blazr shorttrack blade

We provide the best base, now it’s up to you

The precision milled tubes are made of 7000 series aluminum, a material that stands out for its strength and high resistance to metal fatigue.  The bimetal PM blades offer exceptional gliding characteristics and maintain their sharpness optimally. Did you know Viking was the first to use PM steel in skating blades? Their knowledge of this material and how to process it once again results in supreme quality and longevity. As all Viking blades, the Shorttrack blades are designed and produced in the Netherlands.  

The pre-bend in the tubes provides excellent stability. A perfect set pre-bend will bring ease in preparation and a great base for excellent pressure transfer. 

Cups and accessories

The Viking Star cup system provides a strong mounting interface designed for simple and efficient set-up and adjustment. The set comes with all the necessary mounting accessories and special torx key, all of high class quality.

Product Shortages

Just a heads up to my most awesome customers. The shortage of raw materials, shipping delays and work stoppages caused by COVID-19 is now starting to have an impact on our speed skating equipment supply. I have already been informed that some items will be scarce or non-existent for several months. Some prices will also be increasing so I recommend ordering ASAP if you have specific equipment needs.

Be Safe, my Friends

We were all sad to have an early end to our skating season, but there will always be another race if you want there to be. Our world is small and how we behave not only affects those close to us, it also affects those farther away. Please be considerate global citizens and abide by the World Health Organization’s recommendations and keep yourself and others safe. I am so lucky to have customers and friends all over the world. None of us can be complacent about this pandemic. We all love speed skating and look forward to happier times back on the ice, but for now it’s more important that we look after the world that we are all part of. Be safe my friends!
