Introducing KwikRink V Synthetic Ice
"KwikRink V" (KwikRink 5) is our 5th generation formula. It is a fully lubricated surface that requires no topical sprays whatsoever. The slip agent will not ooze out of the surface and run dry in a few years like many of the “self-lubricating” panels sold on today’s market. The speed and performance is unmatched in the industry. One of the biggest differences noticed on the KwikRink V is in backwards skating and transitioning. Because of other synthetic ice surfaces resistance, you will slow down as you transition, and backwards skating does not feel as natural. On KwikRink V, this drag or resistance is dramatically decreased. KwikRink V is changing the perceptions of current industry limitations. The most common consumer complaints in the industry have to do with; surface glide, backwards skating and transitioning, and oily panels.
One of the most common complaints about synthetic ice is that it doesn't glide anything like real ice. You can YouTube countless videos of people skating on "synthetic ice", but it looks more like they are walking with skates on. KwikRink V has a surface glide of up to 50 plus feet with just one stride.
Backwards Skating and Transitioning
The next most common issue regarding synthetic ice has to do with backwards skating and transitioning. These skills have had a very unnatural feel across the industry, and are entirely impossible on some of the surfaces out there - until now. KwikRink V is the closest synthetic surface to ice, made to date.
There are other fully/self lubricated panels on today's market. These panels do not require any type of topical spray. The problem with the majority of these panels is that the slip agent will migrate out over time, rendering the surface a dead cutting board within a few years. This leaves you with an oily surface that eventually turns into a useless piece of plastic. KwikRink V's slip agent is completely dry and will not migrate outside of the panel.

"We had KwikRink install the 5th Generation Synthetic Ice at our Harding Dryland facility in October of 2016. The crew did a great job and the end product is great. Our area is 70’x30’ with four 10’ wide shooting lanes and one 20’ lane specially for goalies. We have a master net with dividers between each lane. The area outside the net is used for stick-handling. We have it scheduled before or after each association practice for the Mites and above. The surface works great for shooting, stick-handling, goalie work and skating. I would highly recommend this product for anyone that wants a surface just like the real thing. Great company to work with."
