The highest quality materials and most ridged manufacturing standards combine to produce excellence on ice.
Record blades, unmistakable by its unique 'Open Tube' finish, features:
- Reynolds 853 seamless air-hardening heat-treated tubing, maintaining the bend longer
- Gas shielded metal arc brazing that ensures a lifetime blade-to-runner fixation
- PM-grade bimetal runner for the best glide properties and sharpest blade possible
- 7075-grade aluminium clap system fitted with 688 TwinCam® ILQ cartridge bearings: lightweight, strong and durable
- Oversized linear springs to increase performance lifetime
The 853 tube is heat-treated to give high strength and damage resistance, and the steel properties allow thin walls to be used, so that lower weight but fatigue-resistant structures can be made. Combined with the PM-grade bimetal runner this blade is up to 3x stronger than Viking or Maple, with the same flex range.

Barry Spaanon 22/02/2014Great sprint blades! If you want precise feel from your blades, these are the ones you've been looking for. After racing on the Record 525 blades for one year. I was really curious how these new blades would behave. In comparision with the 525 blades, the 853's steer a little less and provide more control on the straights. The corners are great on both. If you're a sprinter or middle distance skater I would recommend the 853 blades. If you want a little more steering on the straightaways, whtich is great on longer distances, I would recommend the 525 blades.
