46% lighter than traditional blades, with a full carbon fibre body and stainless steel runner - it's the lightest blade ever made. Our carbon fibre body utilises a nano charged matrix formula to provide increased strength and performance.
After spending countless hours consulting with skaters, engineers, coaches and our design team we are proud to say that we’ve created a blade that’s 46% lighter than traditional blades, 30% lighter than Revolution blades, and up to 20% lighter than aluminum products.
Our patented technology showcases an unprecedented approach to building strength and performance throughout the blade’s frame.
This feature allows the Phoenix to be the lightest blade on the market without any loss in strength, giving you savings in energy and more time in the air. This is officially the lightest blade ever made and showcases a full carbon fiber body with a stainless-steel runner. The stainless steel we’ve selected will outperform anything we have offered before in its ability to resist corrosion while providing extended edge life. Perfectly designed to provide improved performance, this innovative blade design will allow athletes around the world to reach unprecedented technical heights. The skater with the competitive advantage is the one with the best technology.
Nano charged matrix formula to provide increased strength and performance
The lightest blade on the market which provides increased energy saving and more time in the air.
The 420 stainless steel variant we’ve selected is specifically formulated to provide improved corrosion resistance and unrivalled edge life.
What profiles will the Phoenix be available in?
Phoenix will be available in Pattern 99 and Gold Seal profiles.
How does the Phoenix Gold differ from a traditional Gold Seal or Gold Seal Revolution?
Due to the lightweight carbon fiber housing, the Phoenix Gold will have a Parallel profile; meaning it will not be tapered or side honed. The Phoenix will however boast the same primary rocker, secondary rocker, toe-pick, hell lift and stanchion height as a traditional Gold Seal.
How does the Phoenix 99 differ from a traditional Pattern 99 or Pattern 99 Revolution?
Skaters will notice the vast weight reduction from a traditional Pattern 99 will boast the same primary rocker, secondary rocker, toe-pick, heel lift and stanchion height as a traditional Pattern 99, but may provide less flexibility due to the carbon fiber housing.
Does stainless steel mean the blade will not rust?
Corrosion resistant does not mean corrosion proof. Skaters should continue to care for their blades in the same manner.
What sizes is the blade offered in?
Phoenix is available from 8"- 11"
What colors does the blade come in?
Phoenix will be offered with silver or black housing.
Is there a trial period for the blade?
There will not be a trial period for the purchase of Phoenix, but all John Wilson Blades are backed by our lifetime warranty.
