Paramount 440SS-27 Pattern 99 Contour
The strongest steel for the longest lasting edge
The PARAMOUNT 440SS Advanced blades are made from a lightweight aerospace aluminum holder and a 440 stainless steel runner. The aluminum holder makes them incredibly light weight. 440C Stainless Steel, made in the USA, is the highest quality and most expensive material of any skate blade on the market. 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.
These 440SS-27 Pattern 99 Contour Paramount Blades are a good choice for those who are doing double-double combos as well as triples, and for those skaters who need help spinning. The increased curvature of the rocker on the ball of the foot allows for less friction on the ice during spins.
