Reebok RBK 9K Pump Skates
After writing quite a bit about the new Nike Bauer Vapor XXXX skates, we thought we should provide a little competition and go over the specifications of the Reebok 9K Pump…also known as Sidney’s Skates!
Some of the 2009 model Reebok 9K Pump Features include:
The EPP foam core provides puck impact absorption andthe strategically reinforced core and outer shell provide structural support and stability. Reebok has done their best to provide an out-of-the-box seamless fit that even includes instructions for heat molding your skates for a more custom feel.
Of course, even with the ability to lock your laces, a bad tongue or fit will still lead to lace bite problems. The tongue padding in the 9K is foam, not traditional felt, but lace bite should be kept to a minimum if the skate id properly tightened and fitted.
NOTE: The 2009 RBK 9K Pump ice skate is over 80 grams lighter than the 2007 model.
Buying the Reebok 9K Skates
RBK skates generally fit 1 1/2 sizes down from your regular shoe size and are not ideal for those with skinny feet. So, if you have a wide and thick foot, the Reebok 9K may be for you!
