For most people in the northern hemisphere, it’s winter at this time of the year. While it’s too cold for swimming in the sea or playing football, it’s the perfect time for winter sports – skiing, hockey, and so much more. For a game that’s played on ice, your pair of skates can determine how well you perform in hockey. If you are looking for ones that can significantly boost your performance, you might be interested in the Ice Holder: skates by the Sweden-based Marsblade, that boast patented tech and have won praises of NHL players.
Patented Flow Motion Technology
The Ice Holder isn’t your average pair of skating blades; its patented technology gives great power and balance at the same time. The carbon fiber chassis, with its radius shaped rocking surface, sits inside the blade holder. This allows for smooth changes in centre of gravity, giving a speed boost and quicker turns, while maintaining balance.

Faster, Higher, Stronger
Thanks to Flow Motion, players can go faster, have quicker turns, and at greater power. The Ice Holder enables a broad range of movements while effectively distributing pressure, giving longer and more powerful strides. The internal rocking surface ensures high glide speed, as the blade touching the ice would not lose contact. The internal rocking surface also transfers the wearer’s weight faster, for tighter and more efficient turns. Furthermore, it optimizes balance for a stronger playing position, while allowing key muscle groups to be used longer.
Testimonials for Marsblade from NHL Players
Don’t just take the praises from me; take it from the hockey players and coaches who have tested the Ice Holder. Marsblade handed out hand-made carbon fibre prototypes to professional players and power skating coaches, and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback. Players for NHL teams have lauded the Ice Holder for giving great power and balance, extra pushes, much quicker turns, and more. You can find out more testimonials on the Ice Holder’s Kickstarter page.
As mentioned, the Ice Holder is now raising funds on Kickstarter. There are 22 days to go in their campaign, and you can get your own pair of Ice Holder for SEK1,669 (approx. USD199/CAD249/EUR169). It is expected to ship in July 2018, so that when the next season rolls around, you can be ready to take the rink by storm.
