Adrenaline Powerfoot Review
With regard to your hockey skates, it can often be wise to eliminate the negative space between your foot and the shoe. That's why the pads are thermosetting, and that's why CCM always incorporates Pump technology into its Ribcor pads. But these technologies are not your only options for removing negative space, in fact, they are not at all an option to remove the space between the top of the toes and the boot.
It is there that intervenes Adrenaline Powerfoot . Powerfoot Adrenaline pad inserts have been developed to eliminate this excess of space above your toes and, in doing so, improve your performance on the ice. However, are these things all that they are meant to be? Thanks to our friends from Adrenaline, we received sample test units to test the inserts. Find out below how we liked them in our full review Adrenaline Powerfoot.
Adrenaline Powerfoot Review
Adrenaline Powerfoot Skate Inserts are small foam inserts that are cut with rounded The inserts are available in junior and senior sizes, and are very quick and easy to install.
Once the inserts are installed, you will immediately notice a difference. Right away, you will find that your toes have much less room for maneuver than before. All this is by design, of course. Despite a smaller footprint in the toe area, the Powerfoot inserts are always comfortable, which means you can continue to skate without worrying about the discomfort that affects your performance.
Powerfoot inserts also translate to better toe support, better leverage and lateral stability, as well as better energy transfer. It's amazing that such a simple product is able to handle all these things, but it's very effective. By not allowing your toes to move freely, you hold them in place on the sole at all times. This will improve your stride on the rink, and allow each stride to maximize power output.
The Adrenaline Powerfoot skate inserts do exactly what they are designed to do, and work well. At the end of the day, they are a basic tool that will do a good job to eliminate the negative space and provide a bit of performance improvement. How much of a performance improvement can be debated, of course, but it is there. Whether you want to add this to your setup or not, it's ultimately an extra performance issue you're looking for. From my point of view, although the inserts behave well, this is not something that I really need in my skates.
