Jackson Skates

Jackson Support Rating System

Jackson is pleased to introduce the Jackson Support Rating System, to assist skaters and coaches in the selection of the boot or skate most appropriate for their requirements. The system utilizes a numeric/descriptive support rating on all products in the Jackson line.

Ultimate:     95-100     Premium:    85-94
Strong:        70-84       Firm:            50-69
Moderate:    30-49       Light:            0-29

The Elite Supreme 3900 boot will be available in 4 different Support Levels: 95-Ultimate, 90-Premium, 80-Strong and 69-Firm.
As a result, skaters that require less support can now access all of the features and benefits of the Elite Supreme boot, but with a support package appropriate to their level of skating. Most manufacturers only offer top of the line models in a very stiff configuration. It didn’t seem to make sense that other skaters would be denied the most advanced technology.

Ask Mr. Edge Book

After more than 12 years of painstaking research and information gathering, Mr. Edge has put all the pieces of the puzzle together in one easy to read and understand book on figure skates and injury prevention. Ask Mr. Edge explains and provides solutions to common blade, boot, and sharpening problems and their relationship to each other. Furthermore, the book describes many of the common injuries to the ankle, foot, hips, knees, and lower back that competitive skaters are prone too throughout their career and how they can be reduced or avoided altogether.

One stanch supporter of the research efforts that have been put into writing “Ask Mr. Edge”  is Dr. Robert A. Weil, D.P.M. aka The Sports Doctor; personal podiatrist to current Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek.  “Whether you are the parent of a young serious skater, or beginner, a skating coach or trainer, have a history of foot problems, or just looking for answers to help improve your overall skating performance….. “Ask Mr. Edge” is for you” states Dr. Weil.

 The skating instructor is the first person to whom the skater or skating parents turn to for advice before purchasing a good pair of figure skates, and the information contained in “Ask Mr. Edge” gives both coaches and skaters all that and more. The book will be available both in print and electronically at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, the iBookstore, and other outlets beginning in 2012.

Eclipse Blades

 Eclipse Figure Blades:  Riedell is adding two new models to their Eclispe figure blade line. The “Pinnacle” is a high-end freestyle blade designed after the Wilson Gold Seal with only one minor change: the Pinnacle does not taper at the back end as the Gold Seal does. Retail price is a very affordable $380.

 

 

 The “Crescent”, which is designed for the beginning freestyle skater retails at a great low price of only $100.
