How is the Stride Matrix used?
Here, we will show how on-ice skating modes match up with skating treadmill settings and how the Stride Matrix supports the proper technique for each.
Note: In the on-ice skating diagrams below, “CM” means “center of mass” and “CB” means “center of base”. The line between them indicates their effective “forward lean”.
High speed skating demands a wide stride – corresponds to a flat treadmill training angle – and the wide setting on the Stride Matrix
Low speed skating (early in an acceleration out of a stop) demands a narrow stride – corresponds to a high treadmill angle – and the narrow setting on the Stride Matrix
In between there is a middle ground, accelerating through middle speeds – corresponds to a mid-level treadmill training angle – and the medium setting on the Stride Matrix
