Team Great Britain In-line Hockey



Revision Hockey Continue to Support GB

The Great Britain Inline Hockey Team is delighted to announce a sponsorship agreement with the UK distributor of Revision Hockey equipment Good Sports Ltd.

Under the terms of the deal the Great Britain Team will wear Revision Wheels on their skates for the second consecutive year as they bid to defend their Division One title or achieve promotion in the upcoming International Ice Hockey Federation's (IIHF) In-Line Men's World Championships this May in Passau and Landschut , Germany .

"We love Revision wheels," said GB Player-Coach Andrew Sillitoe. "We wore them in Hungary when we won the gold medal last year and I'm still using them now. We get great grip and they are a very high performance product. They suit the advanced surfaces that most inline hockey is played on so it's a great deal for us. We're delighted to welcome them back."

GB will wear the Revision Variant Platinum wheels in Germany featuring Revision's patented Torus Technology which provides 30% more grip on turns than any other wheel on the market therefore improving player speed.

Revision is one of the premier manufacturers of High Performance wheels in the world and they are used by some of the top inline players in the world alongside the Great Britain team including Kirk French, Boyd Sutton, Dave Cairns, Colin Sharp, JJ Crew, Fran Bertagni, Johnny McGuiness, CJ Stretch, Nick Dillon, Brad Ellis, Thomas Stahl, Mike Cichy and Brandon Pirri.

As well as distributing Revision, Good Sports are also the UK distributors for Redstar, Sonic Skate Goods and Jaybird Hockey Tapes. They are continuing to look for retail outlets to stock Revision Wheels and ask interested stores to contact them at info@good-sports.co.uk for more information.
