ABOUT THERMA BLADE INC.
Canadian skate blade maker Therma Blade Inc. is a Quebec-based
manufacturer of heated skate blade technology that was invented by Alberta
resident Tory Weber. Therma Blade is a technologically advanced skate blade
that uses battery powered electrical energy to slightly heat the skate blade,
thereby increasing the layer of water between the blade and the ice surface
and reducing friction at the ice surface. Therma Blade has several proven
physiological and performance benefits for hockey players, including a
dramatic reduction in gliding friction and starting resistance, an overall
increase in stamina and an overall decrease in fatigue. More information on
the product is available online at www.thermablade.com.
