The Sapphire is Viking's highest performing blades for intermediate to elite skaters. Engineered with an oval shaped tube, the Sapphire has increased tube stiffness up to 50% in the horizontal pane making the tube consistent from front to back. The blade and tube have been dual laser welded, thus allowing an inserted bend to remain better due to the high pulling strength of the AHSS steel. These qualities allow the Sapphire to create a lot of pressure in the corners, allowing for better corner work.
