The Revision Hockey flagship wheel, the Flex is used by top players all around the globe. The patented asymmetrical design of the Flex wheel is revolutionary and allows the player to adjust the wheel setups to their skating style by putting the stiff edge of the wheel on the inside or outside. Want unparalleled grip? Want maximum speed? Or use the best of both worlds? It’s up to you. The Flex is unlike any other wheel in the industry.
The Revision Flex wheels give players the customization option to micro-tune their wheel configuration. What does that mean? It means that using one set of wheels, players can choose different wheel configurations to fit their playing style or focus on an area of their game. Revision was able to accomplish this by creating the Flex with 2 different hardness/flex profiles on each side of the wheel.
So, how does the magic happen? By the way, if you want to skip the technical nitty-gritty, head down to the implications section below.
Revision has been working with a hollow Torus for a few wheel generations now, which offers a great balance of stiffness (speed) and flex (grip). This year, with the Flex, Revision designed an asymmetrical hollow Torus and paired it with an offset Flex Ring Insert. Since the Torus is more rigid (but still flexible), the (white) side of the wheel that has the Torus exposed will be stiffer and provide a sharper edge for maximum speed. Alternatively, the ( green/yellow/orange, depending on hardness) side has a higher proportion of the Flex Ring Insert and will flex more providing greater grip.
And to wrap it all up, the Flex uses a new tough PU tire to maximize the Flex technology and also increase the durability of the wheel.
So, whether or not you read the technical specs, the Revision Flex wheel has two distinct edges or sides: one focusing on speed and the other focusing on grip. Players can now customize their wheel configurations to suit their style of play. Check out some of the options below:
So players now easily micro-tune their game in a matter of minutes.
