Eclipse Blade of the Month: Astra

Written By: Riedell | July 17, 2014

What good is the perfect boot without the perfect blade to go along with it? We’re here to help you understand how to pick the blade that is right for your boot with our Blade of the Month! This month we will be highlighting the Astra.

The Astra blade is a member of Riedell’s Eclipse family. Complementing your ability to customize your Riedell skates any way you please, from the color to the boot and blade pair, the Astra blade can be purchased separately to accompany any boot that you desire. However, if you’re unsure about the best boot to pair it with we recommend the 255 Motion, 229 Edge or 910 Flair.

Our Astra is the entry-level blade in the Eclipse line. It is made of 1060 carbon spring steel with an aggressive rake pattern which coaches prefer for their beginning and developing students. With high-quality steel, proven rocker profile and preferred pick pattern, the Astra packs a lot of punch for the price.

  • Rocker: 7’
  • Suggested R.O.H.: 5/8”
