Pre-Order FAQ

What grinding ring should I order?

While there are many options available, the most common grinding rings are the 1/2" and the 5/8" Radius Ring™. Through our testing, we have determined that a 1/2" Radius Ring is a great starting point for smaller, younger players. Many adult players skate on a 1/2" radius as well. We have, however, found that larger, heavier players actually do quite well on the 5/8" radius. A flatter radius, the 5/8" allows heavier players to sufficiently grab an edge for turning and stopping but provides great glide as more of the blade remains above the ice surface.

What is the difference between a Radius Ring™ and a FIRE Ring™?

The easiest answer is that the Radius Ring™ produces a traditional "radius of hollow" (ROH) sharpening. Unless you know you skate on a flat-bottom profile, you will likely want to choose the Radius Ring at checkout. The Radius Rings work for both player skates and goalie skates.  The FIRE Ring™ produces a flat-bottom cut with radius edges. The FIRE Ring requires separate ring for player skates and goalie skates. You can find more information on the Grinding Rings page or in this blog post.

How do I order extra grinding rings?

During the pre-order period, only the sharpener and the grinding ring you select at checkout can be ordered. Soon (in about 6 weeks) we will have our full e-comm site up and running.  We will make an announcement at that time and you will be able to order extra grinding
