Maple Skate introduces Skate On Place on ISPO Munich

Maple introduces the Maple Skate On Place, a revolutionary new training device for ice skaters. Developed for speed skaters by speed skaters.

Other than conventional slide boards, the Skate On Place rewards a good technique; it stimulates the skater to find his/her balance while standing on one leg only. It trains the important so-called “glide phase”.

A prototype was shown on the ISPO, the leading international sports business fair in Munich. It attracted a lot of attention and enthusiasm from both skaters, dealers and other sports enthusiasts. Available soon!

The Skate On Place is designed, engineered and prototyped by Maurits Homan industrial design | engineering for Maple Skate. The originator of the idea is Paul Groot.
