STAND UP TO THE POSTS

When you hit the post you need the confidence that your edge is strong and able to stand up to the tough demands of the crease. Tydan's Titanium Nitride and Diamond like carbon blades offer 2 - 5 times the edge strength of stock stainless steel.

BETTER ATTACK ANGLE

Our increased blade height over stock blades increases your angle of attack allowing for better movement while in your butterfly. This increased attack angle allows you to grab an edge better than traditional stock blades

DURABLE EDGE

Our Diamond Like Carbon blades provide 4-5 times the edge strength vs a standard stainless steel blade. This allows for more time between sharpening and more confidence you have the edge.

INCREASED HEIGHT

Especially for youth goalies the extra height of Tydan goalie blades over stock blades provides a welcomed increase in shoulder coverage of the net.

CUSTOM PROFILING

A custom blade profile is not just for players. As a goalie you need to be agile yet solid on your feet. One popular goalie profile is the PROSHARP Goalie SAM. This profile has three sections to match the requirements of a goalie. The back section is a large radius which will maximize goalie stability and balance. The middle section is a large flat spot to maximize power and lateral pushes. The front section is a short radius to pitch the goalie forward in a more natural stance to increase maneuverablity and ability to get in and out of the butterfly. Having a profile to match you playing style is critical to having optimal performance.

BLADE HOLLOW

Having a hollow to match your playing style, profile and skates will impact your ability to push, skate and be agile. Many goalies play with sharp edges to improve their ability to push, but there is a trade off to how you shuffle. Finding the right balance that matches your playing style is important to achieving maximum performance.
