To better understand what the cagone method can do for your skating, think of what balancing automobile tires did for improving the performance of cars and the quality of the ride for drivers. For years, thousands of cars were driven on tires that were not balanced. The tires were inflated and placed on the car. Trips in a car with an unbalanced tire did get the vehicle from point A to point B. However, it wasn't until someone came along and realized that balancing the tires would improve the performance and feel of the ride. Drivers took notice. The drive on the new balanced tires made for a smoother ride. There was now an increased control of the vehicle, a more stable contact point on the road and better performance when turning and accelerating. Because the vehicle didn't have to work as hard to achieve the same result, the fatigue on the engine was reduced; not to mention a decrease in the fuel consumption.
Compare this scenario of tires to skates. Thousands of hockey enthusiasts are skating on unbalanced skates. They are still getting from point A to point B on the ice not realizing a method exists to increase their performance and improve the feel of their skates. Cagone is that method. The bottom line in ice hockey is that if you can't skate, you can't play the game. Having your skates balanced is crucial in enabling you to get the most out of each stride and turn.

ProSharp haas profiled skates since 1984. The ProSharp system is the only system that can provide players with triple & quadruple radius on a single profile!
A profile is a type off radius that you make on the blade to get the right glide surface. It makes you more balanced on the ice and helps you make fast turns, start, and stops. With a profile on your skates you will have the same type of grip, even when you lean forward to accelerate or lean backwards to make a turn.
