Off-Ice Training and Pre-Game Warm-up. Re-Imagined.
A game-changer for dry land training. The patent-pending DriBlades™ off-ice training blades are the world’s first pair of blades that fit easily in your current skates and are designed to be used off-ice. Now you can actually perform workouts that replicate the same biomechanical and physical effects as actually being on ice. The results: more strength and stamina, better balance and relevant training routines that cross over more effectively to practice and games.
Eat, Sleep And Now Train In Your Skates
As a hockey player, chances are you are already working out. Squats, lunges and core strengthening are all very familiar terms. DriBlades™ off-ice training blades now allows you to perform your work-out routine while significantly increasing the benefits for those who play the fastest game on ice. We accomplish this by working out the same movement patterns and muscles required to skate, something that just can’t be done in a pair of gym shoes.
Increase Your Speed
We all want to get faster and for many players that is our primary goal in the gym. Skating uses many different muscles – Calf muscles, ankle joints, abductors, hip, knee joints. Working out in gym shoes only allows us to work our hockey muscles to a certain extent. If you want to increase your speed, then maximize your workout results by training the same way you play the game, in your skates and on DriBlades™ off-ice training blades.

Create Hockey Strength And Hockey Power
Hockey strength and hockey power are gained by training the same muscles in the gym that you will use on the ice and in competition. When you are doing squats, lunges and other leg strengthening exercises, DriBlades™ off-ice training blades now allows you to replicate the unstable surface that the skate blade provides and gives you the competitive advantage of building power that can carry over to the ice. Everyone has heard a coach say “practice like you play” and “game speed”. With DriBlades™ off-ice training blades you can now take that approach to the next level with your workouts and train the way you play.
Hockey Specific Flexibility
Flexibility helps players avoid injury and allows them to perform complicated and off balance moves at a very high speed. Flexibility has become an increasingly important part of all high level athletes training. Now with DriBlades™ off-ice training blades players can stretch and strengthen the exact muscles we use when skating. By providing an unstable surface, DriBlades™ off-ice training blades allows an athlete to train and work specific muscles, to not only get stronger, but to gain increased movement, flexibility and focus on core areas of injury prevention.
Designed For Safety and Results
DriBlades™ off-ice training blades were designed to increase a player’s overall performance by delivering significantly increased training results. DriBlades™ off-ice training blades were also designed to be completely safe on gym floors and for use at home. The rounded edges provide the exact same unstable surface a skate blade does while making them entirely safe to touch, grab and wear wherever you train.
