    Figure Skate Blade Selection

    Rainbo Sports has the figure skating blades your skater wants. From blades for early freestyle to blades used for triples and quads, we have the figure skating blade you need to be successful on the ice. We also carry specialized blades for synchronized skating and ice dance. Rainbo also offers blade sharpening from some of the top skate technicians in the country. 

    How to Purchase Blades

    To purchase blades, you need to know the length of the sole of the boot. Take the heel to toe measurement of the sole of the boot in inches. It is important that you are measuring the boot that the blade will be going on or the same model and size. Boot sole length can vary even among the same brand boots. Experts recommend one quarter inch (¼”) shorter than the heel to toe measurement for a non-growing foot. For a growing foot, you can buy a blade that fits heel to toe measurement. By using a longer blade, you may be able to re-mount it on the next pair of boots—but there are no guarantees. If you are not sure what length blade to buy, we would be happy to assist you.

    Ultima

    Used by world class skaters, Ultima Figure Skating Blades are among the most technologically advanced on the market. Features include APF Absolute Parallel Finish, and patented E-X-T Extra Hard Edge Enhancement which reduces the blade’s susceptibility to nicks and scratches.

    Rainbo Sports carries several Ultima styles, including the Supreme, Freestyle, Elite, Dance, Legacy, Protégé, Synchro, and Mirage. All Ultima blades come in ¼” increments and are an 8 foot radius.

    • All pick patterns are identical to those on our Ultima blade models, allowing seamless transition 
    • AUS8 Stainless steel runner is maintenance free and holds edges longer for a longer lasting blade 
    • Runner is inset into chassis and permanently secured using 3 axels
