Paramount skate blades are made from in the USA from 440C Stainless Steel, the highest quality and most expensive material of any skate blade on the market; giving skaters less fatigue and both higher and longer jumps.
In addition to resisting rust and other corrosion, this alloy offers superior edge retention. Skaters get 80 hours on the 420SS and 120 hours on the 440SS between sharpenings.
Paramount Sk8s is the only company using 440C Stainless Steel. 440C is a high wear material that holds an edge up to four times longer than carbon steel blades. A competitive skater will skate for hundreds of miles a month. Ice impurities cause abrasion, and tiny molecules rub off, causing blade edges to become dull. 440C Stainless Steel lasts longer because the molecules are more tightly bonded and do not wear away as easily as on lesser quality metals. The blade's life and durability is increased dramatically. 440C Stainless Steel is manufactured at 9 times the cost of carbon steel. Paramount Sk8s is the only company using true 440C metal made in the USA.
Paramount Skates are the only blades on the market with CNC computer machined profiled rockers to assure accuracy and consistency throughout our products. No longer is there a need to "re-learn" how to skate on "new" blades, our lift angles are identical to specs and tolerances are the tightest in the industry.
When combining Paramount blades with some of the new lightweight boots on the market, a skater can lose up to three pounds per blade/boot combination. Paramount Sk8s are a single extruded piece of diamond shaped aluminum, giving incredible strength to your blades, translating to more power, control as well as much more aesthetically pleasing. The extra strong, lightweight, one-piece aluminum construction is virtually unbreakable. The rocker profiles of the freestyle blades are the same as the Pattern 99, Gold Seal, and Phantom Blades. The profile and width of our Dance Blade is the same as the MK Gold Dance Blade.
Paramount Skates is the only company to offer thousands of customizable color options; if you dream it, we can make it. Not only are Paramount Sk8s fully customizable, they are also perfectly leveled and balanced from the most advanced sharpening method the market has ever seen, revolutionizing the way we sharpen blades.
The 420 & 440 blades are available in sizes 8.25" - 11.50". Custom colors are available at an extra charge.
