PROSHARP AS2001 PROFILING

The ProSharp AS2001 Profiling Machine is the most technologically advanced machine on the market. This machine allows for up to four profile zones, maximising every inch of your blade and improving acceleration, speed, agility and stability. This is the future of blade profiling and is currently used by many NHLers including Elias Pettersson.  

TWO KEY PROSHARP PROFILES

Quad Profiles - Made for a powerful controlled skater, looking for increased stability and smoother transitions. 

(ie: Elias Pettersson)

Zuperior (Triple) Profiles - Made for an aggressive, agile skater looking for fast starts, tight turns and quick change in direction. (ie: Brad Marchand) 

More options are available in store. Come in to get a recommendation on the profile that is right for you.

Please Note: Prosharp profiles are extremely precise, we recommend getting them sharpened by us, or somewhere that has training on maintaining a Prosharp profile. We recommend having your profile done twice a year or 20-30 sharpening to ensure the profile is accurate.
