LiveKühn is heading to Skate Detroit this week, and the news media is taking notice. It's been an exciting week around here as we gather our revolutionary PeacePads™ and head to Detroit for the figure skating competition Tuesday through Saturday (July 23-27).

The 32nd annual competition, at the Detroit Skating Club, is one of the largest non-qualifying competitions sanctioned by the U.S. Figure Skating Association. It attracts more than 700 skaters from 30 states and Canada. Skaters will get a chance to see our PeacePads™ tail and hipbone skating pads, and even have a chance to win a set of their own during our Facebook contest through Aug. 30.

LiveKühn and PeacePads™ have generated media interest as Skate Detroit nears. Click here to watch a WNEM video about our company and products. You can also check out these articles about us in the Midland Daily News and on MLive.com. We hope to see you in Detroit. Good luck, and Live Kühn!

Hip and Tailbone Pads by Figure Skaters for Figure Skaters

Falling graphic for LiveKuhnFigure Skating is a unique sport, requiring grace and athleticism combined.  And the stunning moves and breathtaking jumps are what many consider the defining elements of the sport.  It is learning these jumps and moves – and the slips, trips and missed landings that naturally go with them – where the PeacePads™ do their best work.  When LiveKühn® set out to redefine the way pads worked and fit, they had one plan in mind – to use the very best materials, and to design based on the way skaters move.
