FREE Edea skating gloves with purchase.
Figure skaters are always looking to push the boundaries; they want the latest technology to help them. Edea's highly skilled technicians got feedback on what skaters wanted from boots, combined it with the latest research to create Edea's revolutionary new boot – the Piano.
Two separate layers of anti-shock material have been placed at the bottom of the boot over the whole sole, one in the outer sole, one in the inner sole.
- Minimizes impact shocks that cause muscular-skeletal degeneration and injuries through overtraining; increase the amount of force absorbed by the boot on landing thus reducing the strain on the knees and ankles.
- Absorbs ice chatter which makes skating feel smoother and gives more stability. It also gives you a firmer base to jump from allowing you to jump higher and further.
- Reduces the wobble on landing allowing the skater to execute quicker jumps and transitions thus improving ice speed and stability.
Ergonomic heel lock
The Edea Piano has been ergonomically designed to the curve of the foot giving the skater a better feel and more control over their movements while also reducing strain. The power generated by the skater is transmitted better to the blade making the skate react quicker to each push.
The boot structure has been reinforced using stronger materials. The new design with its 7 openings (7 notes) and extra stitching both add additional support.
It allows greater transfer of power. This gives you improved thrust and more control when skating.
Control and stability
The unique insole made with fiberglass and nylon allows more power transmission and increase the stability.
center of gravityIts revolutionary design also allows Edea to reduce the thickness of the sole thus lowering the centre of gravity and giving the skater even greater control and stability.
tacco-pianoThe unique heel design adds further stability to the boot. The curve on the heel increases weight distribution, allowing the heel to be in contact with over half the insole giving the skater a sense of oneness with the ice.
The increased control and sensitivity combines to allow the skater to perform the most technical routines and moves.
Edea's designers have used a combination of microfiber and mesh to revolutionize this boot. Light and strong it offers both strength and flexibility. The 7 openings recall the 7 notes and the keyboard of a piano.
slant-pianoEdea have increased the slant of the foot bed. This shortens the reaction time as the foot is already in position allowing the skaters to be more fluid in their movements as they prepare for jumps.
orologio velocePiano is different to any other boot on the market. To get the maximum from the Piano skaters should be used to wear boots that have the same stiffness (e.g. Ice Fly) in order to guarantee a short break in period and to avoid strain injuries.
Double stitching provides the boots with extra strength across the lacing area ensuring greater accuracy and feel in lacing.
gancio-pianoPiano has Edea’s patented hooks and hook position meaning the laces can hold the boots without the need to strangle the leg. A lace puller will make getting on the ice quicker and help keep the boots pristine by making unlacing easier so the tongue can sit properly when the boots are not in use.
