Cagone: REDEFINING SKATING

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.

THE Cagone METHOD:

IMPROVES
Control and Flow

IMPROVES TURNS AND
Acceleration

INCREASES BLADE
CONTACT AND Consistency

INCREASES BALANCE,
Stability and Agility

RESULTS IN LESS
Fatigue

REDUCES RISK OF
Injury

What are the difference and benefit of Cagone

Blade profiles vs Radius Profiles

  • The professional and recreational hockey player will notice a more consistent feel on the ice, less fatigue, improved turning and acceleration and overall stability.
  • Cagone profiles provides a flat surface between the ankle And the ball of the foot that enable skaters to have more blade on the ice when skating. This is similar to a speed skate blade. When turning or accelerating the player utilizes the radius on the front and back Of the blade to provide the agility and mobility required.
  • Cag one uses the skate size to determine the surface pitch can be added bases on the position of the player and the players ability.

PROSHARP PROFILING

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!

WHAT IS A radius 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.
