Smart Hockey technique balls are the best and most in-demand off-ice technique balls in the world
The different variants of Smart Hockey Teknikkball are used by ice hockey players at all levels around the world. The technique balls are an essential part of players' off-ice training and warm-up before training and matches. The original technique ball from Smart Hockey was developed in 2001. It quickly increased in popularity in the USA, Canada, Sweden, Russia, England, Germany, Japan and Australia because it mimicked the feeling of puck treatment with a regular puck.
SMART HOCKEY MINI TECHNOLOGY BALL: DEVELOPING SUPER FAST HANDS
Smart Hockey Mini Technology Ball has a diameter of 43mm with a contact point on the club blade that is slightly lower than the contact point on a regular hockey puck. The low height makes it perfect for working with pulls and for increasing the range of puck handling. The technique ball weighs 2.8 oz. (79 g.) And weighs less than half of what a regular hockey puck weighs. The low weight makes it easier to develop super-quick hands, in that the ball goes faster and you have to react faster. It is smaller in size than a golf ball, but it bounces far from as much. Smart Hockey Mini Teknikkball is more durable and gives a more correct puck feeling than a "Swedish Wooden Stickhandling Ball", with which it is often compared. The technique ball is not damaged, it is heavier for a better feeling for the puck, and it rolls very well.
ORIGINAL SMART HOCKEY TECHNOLOGY BALL: DEVELOP SOFT HANDS AND AN UNBEATABLE FEELING FOR THE PUC
Original Smart Hockey Technology Ball gives players an unbeatable feel for the puck, and helps develop super soft hands for better puck handling, shots and passes. By taking into account the extra friction during off-ice training, the weight of the technique ball 4.5 oz (128g.) Will correspond to the weight of a normal puck used on freshly laid ice. The point of impact on the ball is minimally higher than on a regular puck. Together with the patented 2-piece dynamic core technology, this is the only technique ball designed to simulate the exact weight, bounce, glide characteristics, and hit point of a regular hockey puck. That way, players can go straight from off-ice training with a technique ball to playing on the ice with the puck without noticing any difference.
SMART HOCKEY MAXX TECHNIQUE BALL: TRAIN UP YARMS FOR A HARDER AND FASTER SHOT
To be able to shoot as hard as Alex Ovechkin, the strength of the forearms and wrists must be trained. Smart Hockey Maxx Technology Ball helps you with just that. With its 208g. is the technique ball heavier than a regular hockey puck (approx. 160g.). By taking into account that the technique ball has increased friction on other surfaces than on the ice, this technique ball will feel twice as heavy as a hockey puck. You will increase the strength of your forearms and wrists by using the Smart Hockey Maxx Technique Ball for your regular technique drills. Use it regularly and notice the difference over time.
SMART HOCKEY TECHNOLOGY BALLS CAN BE USED EVERYWHERE
The solid core is covered by a "Surlyn Shell" outer layer that does not leave marks on the surface or contact points it touches. This combination of core and outer layer minimizes the bounce, and is reminiscent of the bounce that a regular hockey puck has. The solid outer layer together with the bounce and sliding properties means that the ball can be used on any flat surface; in the locker room, on the tennis court, in the driveway or on the garage floor. The technology ball works equally well in all temperatures. The smart hockey technique balls can be used for puck treatment, shots and passes.
COMBINE USE OF ALL THREE TECHNIQUE BALLS IN OFF-ICE TRAINING, AND BEFORE TRAINING AND MATCH
The three different variants of the Smart Hockey technique balls have different properties and areas of use. Smart Hockey Mini Technology Ball best suited for developing super-quick hands. Original Smart Hockey Technology Ball develops soft hands and an unbeatable feeling for the puck. And Smart Hockey Maxx Technology Ball train your forearms and wrists for a harder and faster shot. Although these are the cutting-edge features of each type of technique ball, each type can be used to cover all of these applications. You can either use the same technique ball to improve all of these properties around your own game. Or you can combine all three types to optimize your off-ice training and get the most out of using the technique balls. By using all three technique balls in each technique session, you will be optimally prepared to be able to perform out on the ice. You can also combine using different technique pucks, Smart Hockey Slider Technikkpuck or Smart Hockey Off-ice Training Puck. The greater the variety the better.
