Prevent Slipouts, and grip the ice better as a goalie with OVERDRIVE GOALIE BLADES from Sportwheels!
Overdrive doesn't need sharpening. It's the thinness of the steel that holds the ice. You can try sharpening it with a file or grinder if you want, but it won't make much difference. Overdrive doesn't require any maintenance; just wipe it off after a game. One size fits all models, all sizes.
Slipouts occur when the side of the boot hits the ice and levers the main blade off the ice. Since plastic can't grip the ice, your foot slips. Get OVERDRIVES!!
With Overdrive, you can hold a wider stance that is much more secure, since you can rest on all four blades. And when you have to move out of that stance, you'll have an edge to do it with.
*This is the NEW Overdrive version for the new goalie skates on the market that do not have the classic goalie "cowling" boots. This new blade is installed UNDER the plastic blade holder!
Regular cowling version is also available!
When you first put Overdrive on, you may not notice it all that much, because your feet are programmed to avoid the side of the boot to avoid slipouts. It will take a while, possibly a few weeks before the foot reprograms to dig in and make use of the blade.
Installing Overdrives can be tricky. Please have your local skate shop install them professionally with rivits (preferably copper rivits) ** If you ship your skates to us, we can Install them for you for a fee of $25 (including all parts) You will need to pay for shipping of your skates to and from our shop.
