The Phoenix Gold represents the best of the John Wilson brand as it masterfully honors the iconic Gold Seal curve and integrates it with a game-changing nano charged matrix formula to provide increased strength and performance throughout the blade’s carbon fibre frame.
Unlike the Revolution technology which is centered around its responsiveness and flexibility, the Phoenix Gold is one of the stiffest blades in our range and is perfectly suited for those craving rigidity and maximum airtime from their blades. Furthermore, the Phoenix Gold displays a stainless steel runner packed with carbide generators like molybdenum and vanadium for unrivalled toughness, rust prevention and edge life. While we pay homage to the Gold Seal curve in the Phoenix Gold’s nomenclature, please note that the Phoenix Gold does not feature the tapered and hollow-ground feature which the Gold Seal possesses. When you think Phoenix Gold, think: stainless steel, rigid, Gold Seal curve and the lightest blade ever made.
If you like the traditional Pattern 99 and want something even stiffer and lighter, you’ve found your blade. The Phoenix 99 features the iconic Pattern 99 curve with only one exception--the bottom tooth isn’t tapered and we’ve jacked up the stanchion height. While a tapered bottom tooth can help those seeking a bit of pre-rotation and unwanted drag, this blade targets the pure jumpers in the skating world. As you tap in on your take-offs, you’ll get a deep bite into the ice that will drive any Zamboni driver crazy! Your skating skills will also benefit from the higher stanchion height to prevent any slip-out from your boots on those deep edges the judges are always looking for. 46% lighter than the traditional Pattern 99, the Phoenix 99’s nano charged matrix formula will help you reach heights you never thought possible. Throw in a stainless steel runner packed with molybdenum and vanadium for good measure and you’ve got the toughest blade on the planet.
When mounting to EDEA Skates, the Blade Sizing is very consistent for each size and between models, please use the Sizing chart. When properly mounted utilizing the Edea Screws, no additional water proofing of the Skates should be necessary.
