The Crossover Flywheel is the world’s first commercially available Crossover Skating Treadmill. Its primary focus is on forward and backward crossover techniques, but it also trains balance, knee bend and extension in a way that dramatically enhances the overall skater. The Crossover Flywheel also provides very strong feedback develops edge-control and improves edge work.
How Skaters Benefit from Training on the Crossover Flywheel
The Flywheel paired with a quality instructor elicits intense challenges in many aspects of a player’s technique such as:
- Edge Control on all four edges
- Knee bend
- Push direction
- Power production
- Advanced and Complex Multitasking
Players can take advantage of burst training and voluntarily, on-command, change their stride-rate and exertion level. This teaches players to change gears quickly and with efficient technique. Mix this with multitasking and players can work on driving around defensemen after a deceptive move, and speed change on wide drives in general.
On The Bench does the Crossover Flywheel
Check out the video below for some pointers and tips on how to do some great “crossies” on The Wheel! (Hint: The On The Bench crew have taken the internet by storm with their “hockey expertise” and this video shows what happened when they brought their brand of humor to Competitive Edge.)
