What does PowerSk8r™ do?

PowerSk8r™ has been designed to increase strength, speed, endurance and overall performance on the ice.  Use the PowerSk8r™ to strengthen the front of the thigh muscles. 

What are the advantages of using Powersk8r™?

The advantages are simple. They will make you not only stronger & faster, improve endurance but force you to focus on the mechanics of your stride.  

How does PowerSk8r™ attach?

PowerSk8r™ goes on top of the skate, and uses durable Hook & Loop Velcro underneath.  They attach by simply unhooking the Velcro from one side, and placing PowerSk8r™ on top of your foot.  You then feed the Velcro underneath your skate, through the other side, and pull the Velcro tightly back down.  

What will I feel?

Initially, you will feel the extra weight on your feet. They might seem a little clunky at first, but in a practice or 2 you will get used to having PowerSk8r™ on your skates during practice.  Eventually, once your legs have strengthened, you won’t feel anything at all and can move up to a heavier weight.  

Will PowerSk8r™ change my stride?

Contrary to what many believe, PowerSk8r™ is there to help with your stride.  The extra 1 pound added to each foot forces one to fully extend their stride then recover the stride as low as you can.  A linear recovery is the perfect way to bring your stake back to the center of your body.

When I take PowerSk8r™ off, what will I feel?

When you take off PowerSk8r™, your feet will feel much light in a weird way. The main goal of PowerSk8r™ is to make you faster for game time. During practice, your legs are used to being 2lbs heavier. Come game time, you should be flying without that extra 2lbs.  

Who should use PowerSk8r™?

We highly recommend players who can successfully skate forward and backward and complete consistent right and left cross overs without fail to use our product. There is no age or weight that will determine when your player is ready for PowerSk8r™, but we suggest them for established skaters only. 

Can I get a different color?

PowerSk8r™ is available for adult 1lb weights in the colors of Black and Silver.  Model paint and 10 minutes will make them any color you want!! Have fun!

How does the guarantee work?

The main purpose of the PowerSk8r™ guarantee is to show real life, measurable results. We want you to time yourself from face-off circle to face-off circle, and take the best out of 3 times. In 90 days, re-time yourself. If you haven’t been able to see & feel a difference, PowerSk8r™ will refund you, guaranteed.  

Are there different sizes?

PowerSk8r™ has been designed to fit all youth and adult skates.  Youth skates will use the 1/2lb weights and adults will use the 1lb weights. 

Will I be in pain from using PowerSk8r™?

You will not be in pain from using PowerSk8r™, and shouldn’t feel anything more than really sore legs.  

Are the weights exactly their assigned weight?

Some of our weights are within a fraction of their projected weight. Each set is paired precisely to accompany a weight of equal value. The fraction of difference in each weight will in no way alter their ability to perform, or impact the strengthening taking place.
