Ultrasprint

The Ultrasprint blade looks to take on the competition and better it in every way. That includes using better steel, brilliance polishing, a perfect bend, better bend retention and some awesome graphics to complete the look. All at an unbelievable price.

Ultrasprint

The Steel

The Ultrasprint uses a high end Japanese steel that has the following properties:

  • Easy to sharpen
  • Maintains a very good edge
  • Fine grain structure for exceptional glide
Steel

Attention to Detail

Generally, to keep costs down, short track blade manufacturers batch grind the steel quickly. The heat from this process warps the steel and makes bending the blades a difficult process. The Ultrasprint is ground slowly with highly specialized ginding wheels to avoid excess heat. This slow process creates a perfectly straight piece of steel without warping.

After grinding, a normal short track blade is inserted into the tube for gluing. Before gluing the Ultrasprint undergoes a specialized polishing process called 'brilliance polishing'. This gives the steel a very highly polished finish for better glide.

When the steel is glued into the slot in the tube, there is a gap between the steel and the tube to allow room for the glue. This gap allows the steel to warp. The Ultrasprint is glued in a jig that holds the blade in the tube while the glue dries. Each blade takes 8 hours for the glue to set so it is an extremely slow process but the end result is a perfect blade.

Pre-Bent

Aluminum tubes do not like to be bent. They always spring back to the straight position. To solve this problem, we have two solutions:

  1. We make the tube out of an aluminum that is more likely to stay bent than other brands of blades.
  2. We cut the slot for the steel blade in the aluminum tube on a slight bend. The tube is straight but the steel blade is already on a slight curve. This curve is slight and you will still need to bend the blade more to get the optimum bend to suit your radius. However, you now only need to bend the aluminum tube a very small amount to get your optimum bend. This small amount of tube bending is not enough to stress the tube and the result is a blade that holds it's bend for a much longer period. Some skaters may never need to re-bend their blades.
