In 1908, figure skating first appeared on the Olympic program at the Summer Olympics of Antwerp, and has become one of the most popular sports in the world ever since. Figure skating includes different disciplines, such as solo, ice dancing, pairs ice dancing or synchronized skating.
Figure skating is not an easy sport. Figure skaters who perform at high level, often started training at a young age. Training takes place both on and off the ice. For example, a lot of strength and fitness training is done. Furthermore, the flexibility of figure skaters is trained by doing ballet exercises.
When you practice figure skating, you have to drag your heavy skates to each practise with you. Specifically for figure skaters, ZÜCA has a collection of skating suitcases. The aluminium frame of the skating suitcases are very strong and water resistant. The suitcases contain a built-in seat, so you can always comfortably put on and take off your skates. In addition, the suitcases are equipped with four wheels, which makes them extra user-friendly while climbing stairs. The skating suitcases are great for storing all of your equipment, including your skates of course.
WHAT REQUIREMENTS DOES A SKATING SUITCASE HAVE TO MEET?
Figure skates are not cheap, therefore it’s a good idea to protect them properly during transport. To provide the right protection and to guarantee long durability, it is important that the suitcase is made out of a strong material, so it won’t break easily when used intensively.
