Improve Skating Speed with Trion Skate Weights

trion sk8w8SK8W8s (”skate weights”) are adjustable weights for your skates designed to improve your skating speed, endurance and leg strength. So are they worth it? Here’s our review of the Trion SK8W8 Skate Weights.

How they work: The principle is simple: by adding weight to the skate, in a location that keeps normal skating mechanics the same, extra work is added to your training. When they are removed for a game, your skating speed will be faster.

Use of skate weights will allow the skater, with proper training, to build both slow-twitch muscles for increasing strength and endurance, as well as fast-twitch muscles, to improve explosiveness for quick sprints and acceleration.

Overview: The Trion SK8W8 Skate Weights are designed to help you improve skating speed, endurance, and overall leg strength. The adjustment fitting system allows the SK8W8 to be fitted easily with no tools required. Three separate weights - for multiple weight settings - makes adjusting weight easy, so you can quickly load each skate as desired. SK8W8 is made from a durable, high-impact nylon that will withstand the extreme cold of ice-training sessions. This system also allows you to adjust the weight/load on each skate to customize your training workload.
