Playing hockey on KwikRink Synthetic Ice will drive you toward success in your game! Our synthetic ice panels are used by pro hockey teams and are found in rinks internationally. Best of all, they are available for you to use right at home, allowing you to experience the best for your hockey training, day in and day out.
Here’s why KwikRink Synthetic Ice is the best synthetic ice for hockey, not only locally but across the world.
At KwikRink Synthetic Ice, we make our synthetic ice surface with plastic with very high molecular weight (VHMW). We cut the plastic into custom synthetic ice tiles that come in various custom edges for assembly. It is easy to press the panels into place by using a rubber mallet.
Curious about another unique characteristic? Innovative development in synthetic ice surfaces allows for a smooth and fast skating experience. The glide on KwikRink Synthetic Ice tiles is 90% similar to real ice, one of the best on the market.
The ice panels are also the best synthetic ice for hockey because they are low maintenance. KwikRink Synthetic Ice tiles are self-lubricating. The periodic application of topical lubricants to the ice is not necessary. Self-lubrication saves you both time and money.
If you are a skater, you know how a natural skating surface feels when you stop and accelerate. Imagine the feel on self-lubricating panels, which offers the advantage of quick turns and easy gliding for your skate blade. You become a stronger and faster skater by practicing on a synthetic ice rink.
The best synthetic ice for hockey offers high-quality plastic that retains 90% or more of ice’s natural glide. No synthetic ice product can feel exactly like natural ice, but there are several ways products can come close to a natural skating surface.
Use quality materials: Cheap is not going to offer the best synthetic ice on the market. If the product results in soft tiles, you will have more shavings and friction on the skates over time. Self-lubricating tiles with a very high molecular weight will be your best investment! Sharpen your blades often: Hockey players are hard on their blades. You know a sharp edge allows for better performance, and this includes when skating on artificial ice surfaces.
Keep a clean surface: The best synthetic ice for hockey will be low maintenance, but you still want to ensure the tiles remain clean after use. A cloth broom can clear away dust and dirt while using a gentle cleanser rids it of sweat and spills. Good maintenance will promote the feeling of natural ice now and in the future.
Whether in a basement, garage or backyard, KwikRink Synthetic Ice® can be installed anywhere and is a game changer for serious athletes looking to reach the next level. KwikRink Synthetic Ice® panels offer a similar feel to our original self-lubricating formula, but with two minor enhancements, including a slight boost in our proprietary glide agent. This surface is geared toward the homeowner, and will work great indoors or for smaller outdoor projects. The 4’ x 4’ panels are easier for residential clients to handle, assemble, and disassemble than the PRO version. These panels outperform budget options on the market, with only a slightly higher price point.
Ice skating on synthetic ice provides a coefficient of friction. You can see training improvement with additional ice time right at home. You’ll notice the following advantages when training on the best synthetic ice for hockey:
– Increased speed in your skate as you explosively push off the self-lubricating panels
– Improved cardiovascular stamina and muscle endurance as you practice more at home
– Enhance precision in maneuvering, changing direction, and stopping on your hockey skates. You will notice that practicing on rinks that are in the home or smaller in square feet (such as in a basement in the garage) offer an advantage in performance enhancement
– More practice time which results in skill improvement (no need to schedule ice time, wait for frozen ponds, or a space to practice)
The best synthetic ice for hockey will allow you to customize the size of your rink. You may be in the market for a small rink that can be put in the home to practice shooting or quick skating technique. As an alternative, you may want a regulation size rink to play games and off-ice practice in the backyard.
Determine the type of rink you need and what you will use it for the most. Of course, consider the amount of space you have available and how the room can best accommodate a synthetic ice rink.
