Prime ABS Replacement Blade
The Prime ABS blade variation is the ultimate street contender. A special thermoplastic blend designed to withstand the abuse of any environment offers supreme durability and better bang for your buck. While marginally heavier than other blade materials, such as the Classic ash blade, the ABS blade provides greater force transfer and additional shot velocity. This blade is solid on ice, but it truly shines on pavement.
The Prime ABS blade is constructed from thermoplastic — a material that becomes pliable when heated above a specific threshold but otherwise retains its stiffness and strength regardless of what obstacles it encounters. This sturdy material is molded around the Baltic birch shaft and adheres to the wood for additional strength.
While ABS blades are slightly heavier than their wood counterparts, they offer significant increases in overall durability and provide greater force transmission which results in improved slapshot velocities. This makes ABS an ideal candidate for roller hockey and pavement play.
