“It’s great to skate on Glice®!” – NHL Superstar Roman Josi Uses Glice® Synthetic Ice Rink for His Training

To keep up his training during summer months, NHL superstar Roman Josi had Glice® Elite Hockey Center create a training facility for him in Switzerland. For three weeks the captain of the Nashville Predators has been training on the Glice® synthetic ice rink by now – his verdict: “It’s great to skate on Glice®!”

Josi uses the synthetic ice rink to practice his skills from stick handling and shooting to skating and is amazed by the authentic glide effect. Josi’s sessions last several hours and also include off-ice training devices installed by Glice® Elite Hockey Center. The sessions are overseen by Josi’s athletics trainer, who recognized the superb quality of the Glice® synthetic ice facility right away. With so much training Josi will be ready for the next season, leading his team to shoot for the Stanley Cup once more.

Glice® Joins Red Bull Crashed Ice Marseille, France 2018

During the Red Bull Crashed Ice race in Marseille, France, Glice® was contacted to provide 150 square meters of high quality synthetic ice paneling to connect a late addition to the course.

Glice® delivered the synthetic ice panels within 12 hours to the event location and is enormously proud to have been part of the Red Bull Crashed Ice Marseille 2018.

Proof positive that the Glice® synthetic ice panels worked well was the fact that no difference in glide was felt by the racers going from real ice to Glice® and back real ice.

The racing was incredibly exciting and more importantly the athletes were able to compete at the highest level, earning valuable points as part of the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship Series.

Cameron Naasz of the USA won the event for the men, Jacqueline Legere of Canada won for the Women and Mirko Lahti from Finland secured his 2nd Junior World Championship title with one event left in the series.

We wish all the athletes further success and hope that Glice® can be part of the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship series and in particular the major Red Bull Crashed Ice events in future.

Glice® Synthethic Ice Rink in the Maldives Covered by CNN

An ice rink is quite possibly the last thing you would expected in a tropical paradise such as the Maldives; but then again, it’s a dream destination, so you are allowed, if not urged, to dream a little! The Jumeirah Vittaveli has made this particular and unlikely dream come true and opted for Glice®, when installing the first synthetic ice rink in the Maldives. Read the full story, as seen on CNN, below. To find out how Glice® synthetic ice rinks are rewriting the physical laws of ice sports, visit https://www.glicerink.com

Here is the story, published on CNN:

Is this the most unlikely place for an ice rink?

(CNN) — A tropical island nation in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is best known for its 1,000-some islands and over-the-top experiences.

The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island offers an “Instagram Butler” service and an all-glass, underwater restaurant; Soneva Jani provides private water slides for all its overwater villas; and The Private Reserve is the world’s largest overwater villa.

But this spring, there’s another reason to visit: the destination‘s first ice rink.

Dubbed “Ice Ice Maybe…,” the1,829-square-foot (170-square-meter) rink opened in March at the Jumeirah Vittaveli resort, located about 20 minutes by boat from the capital of Malé.

“We named it ‘Ice Ice Maybe…’ to imply that it’s not a traditional cool-down ice skating rink,” Amit Majumder, general manager of Jumeirah Vittaveli, tells CNN Travel.

“It’s a synthetic rink that’s built on the beach, so you can go swimming in the tropical waters then go skating right after — or vice versa.”

The Maldives’ first ice rink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The idea for the ice rink first began percolating in December 2016, right around Christmas time.

“We had some regular guests who have been staying with us for many years now,” says Majumder.

“The family’s daughter sort of challenged us to build the rink. She said she wanted to have a skiing and adventure holiday, but her parents wanted to keep coming back to the Maldives.”

So Majumder set out to deliver the best of both worlds.

“The project was challenging in the Maldives — it’s not like Europe, where people already know about ice rinks,” says Majumder.

“It was a steep learning curve. We did a lot of research to learn about the equipment we’d need, how high the safety boundaries should be, the optimum size of the rink ….”

A zero-energy ice rink

A non-negotiable component of the project was finding an environmentally friendly solution.

“While researching, we actually visited a few real ice rinks,” says Majumder.

“This is where I met Olympic gold medalist Evgeni Plushenko (who performed at the rink’s opening ceremony). I went to see his rink in Russia, which is made of real ice. That’s where I learned how much energy a traditional rink really uses.”

To keep a conventional rink frozen, you have to refrigerate it, which requires constant electricity and water.

“We’re an island, so we have to be very careful about our impact,” says Majumder. “Every kilowatt hour of energy we use causes burning of diesel or fossil fuels, so a traditional rink was out of the question.”

Instead, the hotel enlisted Swiss company Glice to build an artificial, zero-energy rink.

“A regular guest, whose daughter ice skates, told us about the synthetic Glice ice rink,” recalls Majumder.

“We experimented in a small area first and, when we saw that it worked well, we expanded.”

Composed of 25-30 interlocking plastic ice sheets, the rink’s synthetic sheets — made of silicon and plastic — do not require chilly temperatures to produce that gliding sensation.

As such, the rink can withstand the fiery Maldivian temperatures, which hover around the mid-80s Fahrenheit most of the year.

“Some people assume it is going to be cold, since it’s an ‘ice’ rink, but that’s not the case,” says Majumder.

“The atmosphere is slightly cooler, because of the shade, but there’s no artificial cooling needed since it’s a synthetic rink.”

A cool perk

At first glance, the ice rink looks like any other Maldivian villa with its wooden stilts and thatched roof.

“We wanted to blend the rink into the architecture of the Maldives,” says Majumder.

“The only big difference is that we have added some glass panels on the roof to let some natural sunlight come through. It’s unlike any ice rink I’ve ever seen.”

A fast favorite among families, in particular, the rink is exclusively available to hotel guests.

“We try to keep the experience as private as possible for the residents on the island,” says Majumder.

“The only exception would be that we open the rink to locals from time to time, so our neighbors can experience the sport.”

For hotel guests, each two-hour skating session ($75 per person) includes skate rental, protective gear, souvenirs and an ice cream sundae afterward — to ensure you’ve properly cooled down before gliding back to the beach.

Largest Glice® Synthetic Ice Rink in Czech Republic Replaces Conventional Rink

With 450m² the Glice® synthetic ice rink in the historic heart of Znojmo is the biggest of its kind in the Czech Republic and frequently visited by the locals. Previously using a conventional ice rink, the town opted for Glice® synthetic ice when the old rink’s lifespan expired. Now Znojmo has a fully mobile solution that will outlive any conventional ice rink. Cutting the costs associated with traditional rinks, the savings based on the waterless zero-energy technology of Glice® synthetic ice rinks will finance the entire rink within only two years. No wonder the deputy mayor looked very happy during the inauguration!

How long does synthetic ice last? Here’s the astounding answer!

How long does synthetic ice last? If you opt for the Swiss premium quality of Glice®, synthetic ice lasts up to 30 years, easily trumping conventional ice and other synthetic ice products. This astounding durability might come as a surprise; after all, a common assumption is that the blades perpetually scratch the surface and that the synthetic ice therefore doesn’t last very long. Curiously, the opposite is the case: the more you use Glice®, the more the surface molecules release their lubricant, enhancing the glide effect further.

Synthetic ice that lasts – the unparalleled durability of Glice® synthetic ice rinks makes them the perfect choice for professional athletes and leisure venues alike. Discover the product range here:

Glice: Ecological Ice Sports, Anywhere, Anytime

Thanks to a complex molecular technology Glice ice functions entirely without the use of water and energy, while offering the same glide-effect as conventional ice. Hence, Glice rinks allow for Eco-friendly, climate-independent and cost-efficient installations worldwide and regardless of seasons: ice skating anywhere, anytime.

Just as astonishing as the product itself – ice that isn’t ice – is the company history behind it: merely six years ago the startup slid into the market for ecological ice rinks and advanced to the rank of industry leader in no time. Glice Co-Founder and CEO Viktor Meier will gladly elaborate on the technological quantum leap and the unconventional organizational culture that power the success of Glice. By now the startup sells its ecological ice rinks in more than 80 countries on 5 continents and prominent clients include Coca Cola, Red Bull and The Venetian. The array of installations ranges from tiny installation in private gardens to the world’s biggest ecological ice rink in Azerbaijan. During the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Brazil a Glice ice rink became a true people magnet and welcomed the Brazilian National Ice Hockey Team and the Swiss president among its visitors. In 2018 Glice was present at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

Olympic Gold Medalist Evgeni Plushenko Inaugurates First Glice® Synthetic Ice Rink in the Maldives at Jumeirah Vittaveli

The Maldives are the kind of tropical paradise we envision in our sweetest vacation dreams: palm-fringed islands flecking a turquoise sea and sand as white as snow. But sand is sand, snow is snow and ice is ice, right? Maybe! “Ice, Ice, Maybe” is the motto of the latest Maldives attraction and a first in the island realm – a Glice® synthetic ice rink amid the tropical scenery.
