EHS FTCS F-Type Blade is one of the three top tubes of the EHS short track collection. Inspired by the EVO Quarq FT that has been produced by Hagen technology for many years, the EHS QCS is one of the showpieces in the EHS short track collection. The blade is made from the unrivaled high-quality trusted aluminum tube material and equipped with superior, tight blades. The bends will longer and gives the familiar feeling and control of the Quarq Flattop. FTCS stands for Flattop Campbell Speed, former winner of gold at the Olympic Games by Derrick Campbell and the co-designer of the EVO Quarq-FT and the EHS FTCS. The FTCS is the most flexible variant of the three EHS top tubes.

EHS FTCS blade feature:
Aluminum tube made out of very hard quality aliminum often used in aircraft industries. The original alloy we used for Bont and EVO blades. This alloy is more expencive but keeps the bent better than other alloys.
The tube has a cnc machined slot in the bottom in the shape of the bent. This very precise machining job makes it possible to create a nice and smooth prebent blade.
In the Q-CS and the FT-CS the side walls are prebend cnc machined to create a very precise wall thickness of the lips This very difficult process gives the original blades the special feel.
The EHS cups are made out of one of the hardest available aluminum alloys often used in aircraft industries. This alloy is only available as solid material so the cups are machined out of solid material. This is a more expencive process, but then you have a very stiff low weight and long lasting piece of art. Tread will stay in shape for long use and the mounting on the blades will not wear out. Cups are made in standard hight 0, +2,+3,+4,+5,+6,+7,+8,+9,+10. And on request we can machine angled cups and nodized in special colors.
Making the steel runners is a very difficult process. Especially keep them flat. All skaters want to have the flattest runners, so we made it our goal to make the best runners. We only use the best PM and Bi-Metals, do the most advanced heat treatment and have the nicest surfacegrinding. No costs are saved to achieve the best results here. The runners are glued in the tube by our own invented proven system. Using very high quality glue invented for use in earospace industries. There never failed one runner coming out of the tube.
The blades come in different lengths. Size 15.0-15.5-16.0-16.5-17.0-17.5-18.0 inch with 165mm mounting distance.
On special request we can make other sizes and 140mm mounting distance.
On request we can do special laserengraving on the blades. For more info for special requests please inform by mail.
