The Bont short track Spec-R is our mid-range speed skating ice blade. It combines a quality 6061 aluminum tube with extremely high-quality Japanese steel. The steel is hardened to 58 Rockwell. These blades have a slight bend cut in the tube for the steel so that you only need to slightly bend your blades. This means that the tube has less stress and less chance of it losing its bend like normal blades.
