Gliding Stars Ice Walkers

Available in three sizes, the Gliding Stars walkers are used by beginning skaters of all ages, with or without disabilities. It is extremely stable, made of steel and powder coated, made in the United States at an RGO certified facility.  These are very durable for learn to skate or beginner hockey programs, and are widely used by parks and recreation programs around the country. They have been used in our adaptive skating program for people with disabilities for over 37 years.

The sides have a unique hinge design to fold for transport, carrying and storage and take up just a few inches leaning against a wall or in a closet.

“The walkers are an astounding success. We will be buying again; they have added so much for people just trying the sport. They truly are the best that I have ever found. Easy storage because of the ability to fold and they work great!”

“Glorious! Blissful! Like flying!

I keep the glider out front and use it only when I feel I’m losing my balance, so for the most part I’m not leaning on the rails.

This system allows me the security to skate and the freedom to do so with my own balance and power.

I love to skate and for the first time in almost three winters, I was able to get out on the ice.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
