The key to improving in any sport is practice. For anyone who has chosen ice hockey as their sport, you know it takes hours of dedication and practice to get better. But getting to the ice rink isn’t always possible. Sure, you can grab a ball, a stick and your running shoes and head to the driveway to practice shots against the garage but it is not the same as practicing on the real thing.
Ice time is very expensive, and it is often not available at the time you’d like. It may be easy to find an outdoor pond or lake to skate on in the winter but what about the other 3 seasons? Or if you live in a warm climate?
There is a solution that is becoming more and more popular around the world and that is installing a synthetic ice rink. The key is finding a quality product that will provide you with an enjoyable skating experience. In recent years, advanced technologies have drastically improved the surface of an artificial ice surface. Synthetic Ice Solutions uses a leading-edge polymer design to create the best artificial ice surface available.
The following is a list of benefits for skating on synthetic ice:
1. A little more friction that regular ice will increase your endurance and power
Synthetic ice solutions has the lowest friction than any other product on the market. Tests show that it requires 10-15% more effort than skating on actual ice. This means when you do hit the real thing, your endurance and power will be improved.
2. Mimics real ice so you get more realistic training for game time
Practicing on synthetic ice allows you to put on your skates and train just like you would on real ice. Practicing on dry land is good but doesn’t compare to the benefits of stickhandling, shooting, and skating on something that mimics the real thing.
3. It is always available
No matter the weather, you will always have a surface to skate on. In the warmer months, real ice can be hard to find. Synthetic ice can be installed inside or out and on any flat surface. It is so easy to install; you can even move it around if you’d like. Installing a rink in your home makes it super easy to get in your practice time.
4. Always a consistent surface
Real ice rinks can sometimes be uneven and unless you have the right temperature the conditions can be less than perfect. This can lead to safety issues and unwanted maintenance. With Synthetic Ice Solutions, you will have a smooth, almost seamless surface thanks to their True Lock system. Their state-of-the-art materials mean panels fit together properly and there are no expansion and contraction issues. You have a perfect skating surface every time.
As you can see, skating a synthetic ice surface is a great way to take your game to the next level.
