Raps 3D ice clap skate (3D schaats)

The Raps 3D clap skate (in Dutch: 3D klapschaats) is a revolutionary new and faster ice clap skate. Anatomic analysis of the ankle joint, knee and hip in the human body lead to a 3-dimensional pivoting system. Increased skating speeds and decreased lap times were the result. The skate has several records to its name.
