John Wilson Pattern 99 Parabolic
Often imitated, never equalled
The Pattern 99 blade is no stranger to the podium. It is one of the most popular profiles in the world as it consistently delivers maximum performance to high-end freestyle skaters. The primary 8 ft radius works wonderfully for Japanese sensation Shoma Uno who uses the Pattern 99’s tapered top toe pick for precision toe spotting on explosive jumps. This blade is ‘the real McCoy’ – it’s not comparable to anything, it’s not similar to anything, it’s the original. If you’re emerging as an elite level skater with powerful jumps and seek more control by being lower to the ice, this blade is undoubtedly your best option in our range – just ask our very own Shoma Uno.
The unique curvature and mid-section tapering of a Parabolic blade is designed to create less drag as you move across the ice. This means smoother, sharper and more energetic spins, turns and edge work no matter what level you're skating at.
And, as your weight is centered due to precision geometry, you have increased levels of control and confidence to unlock your true potential.
Finally, as they can be sharpened in fewer passes (with no special technique needed) they outlast conventional blades too.
As our advanced design allows your weight to centre on the blade, footwork and edge jumps are dramatically improved.
The unique, crescent-shaped edges are created to deliver skaters with sharper, more accurate turns.
With a lighter blade, take offs are faster and landings more precise.
