Salming Raptor blade
According to the latest news Salming decided to introduce the new Raptor blade. This blade is a light and flatter blade. Salming recommends this blade to all players who like strong and quick shots and fast feint. The Raptor blade allows also a good ball handling on the backhand side. This blade resembles its youngest predecessor - the blade Salming Hawk, but it's not entirely true. The Salming Raptor blade is more straight compared to Hawk or Quest 2. All longitudinal ribs of the Raptor blade are T-shaped to ensure perfect stiffness of torso. There are three solid fields at the lower edge, which also support the blade stiffness. Designers were able to save the most weight on a thinner frame along the entire blade and on the heel. The blade heel is hollowed on the backhand side.
While we are speaking about the blades we cannot forget the most popular blade by Salming, the blade Quest1. The Quest 1 blade goes to the next season again and it is the most popular blade by Salming. The Quest1 is based on the previous Quest model. The blade Quest1 is universal and it is suitable for passing and shooting using all types of game techniques. This blade belongs in the middle, between straight and curved blades. It is ideal choice for players who do not like too pre-curved blades (like the Hawk blade) or straight blades (Quest 3 blade). Another advatage of this blade is lightly pre-curved tip, which allows good work with the ball. The Quest1 blade is a long-term bestseller used by Kim Nilsson - one of the most famous floorball players. He has been offered new blades several times - Hawk, Raptor and other blades, but Kim Nilsson has always refused them and stayed loyal to his Q1 blade.
Salming backs away from the blades Quest2, Quest3 and Quest5
We'll stay with the blades for a moment! Salming decided to back away from its earlier models of the blades Q2, Q3 and Q5. Why? They have replaced them by newly created blades.
For example the Quest 2 blade is an older model, which will be replaced by the Hawk blade. These two blades are identical in the shape, but the Salming developers have implemented minor enhancements in the Hawk blade. It makes this blade a real weapon on the field.
The Quest 3 blade is one of the less successful blades by Salming. The shots and passes are aqccurate, but the blade will not forgive you any technical mistake. Therefore it is certainly not suitable for beginners or younger players. This is the reason why Salming backs away from this blade.
The Quest 5 blade has extanded blade frame, so it gives more powerful impression. It goes well with both Forhand and Backhand. You have to lean into the blade while shooting a lot, then the shots fly fast enough.
Let's take a look at the hardness of the Salming blades and let's make it clear.
We divide the blades into hard, medium and soft blades in general. 90% of shafts are originally equipped with blades of medium hardness. This applies to almost every blade on market from the backhand side on the blade with a wheel. There is an arrow indicating the material from which the blade is made. What are the hardness types by Salming?
Hard - BioPower ™ The power of nature! This hard material is made of sugar cane. The blade is excelent in its playing properties - the feeling of ball and powerfull shot. The minumum bio base is 96%! It helps the environment.
Medium - Endurance ™ The medium hard blade. These blades have exceptional furability, low friction and perfect playing characteristics. Endurance ™ blades are originally used on the most Salming sticks.
Medium soft - Touch ™ The soft blade. Touch is a mix of materials that contains 50% of BioPower. The Soft material will not reduce the speed of the shot. The ball almost bounces off the blade.
Soft - Touch Plus ™ The softest blade material by Salming. The Touch Plus contains mix of materials, which developers in Salming made for more sensitive work with ball and fine technique. The ball does not bounce as much as the hard blades. We recommend this material for rubber surfaces.
If you are unsure about the hardness of the blade, you can find a detailed description in the Blade Salming. If you still want to advise, do not hesitate to contact us at the e-mail address: email@example.com . We are here to help you.
Goalie equipment E-series
Salming has prepared a new series of goalie equipment. The E-SERIES™ powered by Poron™ - this new series of elite goalkeeper equipment by Salming was developed in cooperation with the world's best goalkeeper - Eero Kosonen.
Poron is a special memory foam that absorbs shock and maintains its unique properties over the long term. The equipments made of this material adapts to your body after a few workouts. This provides maximum protection and comfort for goalie. The energy of the ball is absorbed by this material, so the ball will not bounce out of reach of the goalkeeper. Salming calls this function as "Rebound Killer". You can find it in products below:
- Salming E-Series KneePads
- Salming E-Series Jock Strap
- Salming E-Series Goalie Protective Vest
- Salming E-Series Goalie Protective Shorts
- E-Series Kneepad Spare Cushion
Restoration of the Tour Stickbag
Another news by Salming is restoration (after a one-year pause) of the affordable Tour Stickbag. Stylish bag for floorball sticks for a reasonable price. The bag holds 3 sticks. It is made in several color combinations for everybody:
Salming is one of few floorball brands that produces floorball shoes. Salming assumes that players regularly intensively use the shoes (2 times or more per week). The salming shoes provide more stabilizing features to minimize the risk of the injury even when extreme movement changes at the highest speed. The shoes have specifically reinforced stressed areas for the maximum comfort. Salming has expanded its repertoire for this season with the new Eagle and the Hawk Court models. Salming has now 6 types of indoor shoes:
Cobra The robust shoe with emphasis on the soft sole. The shoe has a raised sole on the heel, which gives the foot certainty. The shoe provides enough comfort for the heavier athletes (higher profile - more material on the sole of the shoe) and holds even in the event of significant direction changes - significantly enlarged sole in the area of the foot pads.
Hawk Hawk is the shoe with an extremely light upper and a lot of material on the sole. The shoe has a flatter sole (lower heel to toe). This helps quick starts. The shoe has the great reflective properties. The edge on the outside is not as pronounced as the other models of this brand. The Hawk are soft shoes for sprinters who do not need to change direction quickly.
Viper Probably the most universal Salming shoe. The shoe has a harder sole with a reinforced middle section. The shoe has plastic reinforcement (the shoe does not "twist"). The shoe has only 14 mm soles under the tip for better feeling of the surface, that is why it is suitable for athletes who require this feeling. The shoe is comfortable on the inside even in the case of hard impacts. That's the basis for this shoe.
Eagle The multisports indoor shoe for recreational (amateur) players. The shoe has a thinner softened sole, lightweight breathable upper and stabilizing detail from previous Salming models. Eagle are designed for athletes who enjoy the comfort and stability of the walk. These indoor shoes are not built for regular and heavy trainings several times a week.
Falco the recreational (amateur) model of shoes with a thin sole. This shoes are composed of basic materials. This fact does not change the construction of the shoe, so the most important stabilizing elements are preserved. The boot has a durable toe, hard sole and breathable upper. Ideal for the agile players.
Slide The special indoor shoes for floorball goalie. These shoes meet all the requirements and demands of the goalkeeper. The basic advantage is the sole divided into two parts, so the shoe is amazingly flexible. The advantage is durable padded upper material. The shoe protects your feet thanks to these protective elements. The upper of the shoe is coated with a durable polyester fabric that allows smooth movement on any surface. The shoe has a non-slip sole, so the shoes allow good tapping during movement.
Bellow you can find the low profile children's indoor shoes characterized by excellent stability. The best of the Salming developers' expertise on indoor shoes is packed with these models:
