Super-Glide has infused a skate enhancer into the polymer in the production process that heats up your blade to activate the slide, it work's the opposite of real ice when your blade is coldest you skate faster. Super-Glide is the closest thing to real ice. It actually is a better fit for the beginner skater because their is more friction that makes is easier to skate on. Outdoor, indoor, anywhere our Super-Glide ice skating rinks are fitted together on a spline system that makes a rectangular cutting board shape of 4’ X 4’ synthetic ice sheets. BellaICE also sprays a dry to the touch skate enhancer on the ice panels so that you will have that feeling of gliding across the ice.
