Sparx Grinding Ring Comparison

Understanding Radius of Hollow

A smaller Radius Ring (5/16", 3/8". 7/16") will cut deeper into the blade creating more bite. A larger Radius Ring (1-1/8", 1", 7/8") will not cut as deep, creating more glide.

Choosing the Right Radius of Hollow

The most common Radius of Hollow is 1/2". Sparx recommends 1/2" for most youth players and increasing the radius (9/16", 5/8") as the player gets larger.

Sparx Fire vs Sparx Radius

The Radius Ring produces a traditional "radius of hollow", which is recommended for most skates. The Fire Ring produces a flat-bottom cut with radius edges.

Sparx Fire Grinding Rings

19953-10884

Looking to get the grip you need with the benefit of extra glide? Our FIRE Ring hollows provide exactly what you are looking for - the best of both worlds. Available in four different cuts (3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4") the FIRE ring is a re-imagined and optimized flat bottom hollow that provides improved glide while still maintain desired bite.

Features

  • Choosing the Right Radius of Hollow: Choosing the right hollow is a matter of personal preference, whether you want more bite or more glide. The most common Radius of Hollow is a 1/2", which is what you will find in most retail settings. We recommend 1/2" for most youth players (less body weight) and then increasing the radius (9/16", 5/8") as the player gets larger.
  • Understanding the Radius of Hollow: Radius of Hollow is simply how deep the groove is that is cut into the skate blade from sharpening. The deeper the cut, the more grip the blade will have on the ice. The shallower the cut, the more glide the blade will have on the ice. A smaller Radius Ring (5/16", 3/8", 7/16") will cut deeper into the blade creating more bite, while a larger Radius Ring (1-1/8", 1", 7/8") will not cut as deep, creating more glide.
