The idea of the CAG Profiler came directly from basic physics of Speed skating.
When we think of Speed skating we think of long flat skate blades which provide increased glide and power to the skater. The power is achieved due to the length of the flat blade pushing into the ice pro-pelling the skater forward. More downward energy on a flat blade with increased ice contact means more return energy to the skater. Not only does this create more thrust but as well spreads the skaters weight more evenly over a larger area reducing the downward pres-sure into the ice and allowing for reduced friction and better gliding characteristics.
It was this information that gave Cag the idea to put the physics of Speed skating into a hockey blade. Of course there would be some problems to overcome not the least of which is re-duced maneuverability. The game of hockey is a much more lateral sport which includes quick turns and body transitions forward and backwards. Skate blades have to be much shorter to facilitate this type of play.
The Profiler was designed to grind a flat area of steel on an existing skate blade while still allowing the player to shift his or her balance back (for turns) and forth for toe extension in the stride. The amount of flat and it’s positioning on the blade are easily programmed via the numeric keypads.
This flat could then be placed in the area of the blade where he or she is balanced and utilizes most during skating.
If for instance you are more of a forward lean style skater you may want the flat area to be a little more forward of blade center. This puts more blade contact in the exact area you utilize most for your initial stride push off and glide zone
