Hockey Gear & Ice Skates
Better Equipment. Better Athletes
In addition to biking gear and services, Big Sky Cycling is also a full-service hockey retailer. We offer one of Montana’s largest selections of high-end hockey gear, including skates, sticks and protective gear by Warrior, Bauer, and CCM. We also have a multitude of accessories, including tape, socks, compression clothing, helmets and much more, like toddler size skates.
Big Sky Cycling owner, Jim Barnes, has been playing hockey for over 30 years so trust us when we say that he knows hockey. From beginner skater to the elite professional, our highly trained team is ready to assist with any needs from skate sharpening and repair to proper equipment selection and fit. We want everyone to feel that this is not just another hockey shop but rather a place you can go to get the best gear possible. At Big Sky Cycling we are committed to supplying the Helena community with better quality gear that fits right, feels good, and lasts for years.
- Precision Skate Sharpening and Profiling
- Skate Heat Molding for enhanced comfort and fit
- Expert Skate Repair (riveting, replacement blades and blade holders, stretching)
- SRS Stick Repair for carbon sticks
- Professional Gear Fitting
We sell Nordic speed skates and Nordic blades that fit your XC ski boots. Helena is blessed with amazing places to explore on our many lakes and reservoirs when winter rolls around. The long bladed skates used for speed skating cruise along and glide smooth on outdoor ice. It’s a beautiful way to see the winter wonderland. We have been importing Zandstra brand skates and blades from the Netherlands for sale; and even rent blades that you can try out.
We also carry a selection of Jackson skates for all skating abilities, from the casual skater who just wants to go to an outdoor rink on the weekend to the competitor skating 5 days a week. In addition, we carry tights, skate bags, and blade covers.
