IceCourt Pro was designed to simulate the same feel, skating
characteristics and puck behavior as ice hockey while using inline skates. It was designed
to be left in place during winter, by freezing it in the ice. It gives the ice a beautiful
blue shimmer, without the need for ice paint.
“IceCourt is the only surface that is designed specifically for inline
Charlie Yoder, Head Coach, USA National Inline Hockey Team
To design a dry Polypropylene surface that has similar skating characteristics as ice while
using inline skates is a challenge. The wheel grip must be good, but not too grippy, so that
regular hockey stops can be performed and still have enough grip to prevent slipping during
tight turns and acceleration. The feedback of many great European ice hockey players were
evaluated during the development. A fine balance was found, together with specially
formulated material, which became the basis of our patented perforated surface.
To enhance the puck speed on a flat surface, we designed tiny pinheads, which reduce the
contact area of the puck, allowing similar speeds and glide characteristics as on ice. The
perforation in the floor diffuses the air buildup underneath the puck, preventing it from
wobbling during high speed shots.
The combination of a faster puck together with a super fast skating surface has made the game
of inline hockey as exciting as ice hockey.
