MATRIX SHORTTRACK BLADE
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE AT EXTREME DEMANDS
The Matrix blades are specifically designed for serious competitors who set high demands on the
performance of their blades. Even under extreme circumstances.
The Oval shaped Matrix tubes are a new Viking Innovation. The specifically designed shape entails extra stiffness in the horizontal direction of the tubes. This will bring you a mighty amount of grip while maintaining a high level of control. All that without losing the flexibility in the blade, even under extreme demands. Combined with the characteristics of the high quality 66 HRC PM steel you will experience an amazing glide. Feel the momentum building up throughout the curve, the matrix blades will hold you all the way.
WE PROVIDE THE BEST BASE, NOW IT’S UP TO YOU
The tubes are made of a high grade 7000 series aluminum, a material that stands out for its strength and long-lasting endurance. The tubes, and therefore the bend radius, are precision milled for a tension free mounting of the blade. Another quality enhancing feature is that the flange on the blade has an evenly divided thickness across the entire length of the blade. Enjoy a Smooth glide, and an equal and predictable pressure distribution. A standard but important feature that provides for excellent stability is the pre-bend in the tubes. A perfect set pre-bend will bring ease in preparation and acts as a great base for solid pressure transfer and pure uncorrupted feedback from your material.
MADE IN THE NETHERLANDS
The extremely high quality 66 HRC 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? Our knowledge of this material and how to process it indisputably results in supreme quality and durability. As all Viking blades, the Matrix blades are designed and produced in the Netherlands. As such we can preserve and guarantee extraordinary standards in products and services.
