Viiltosukan testauksesta on tarkempi kuvaus alla mutta pääkohdat olivat testissä seuraavat:
- simuloitiin 98 kiloisen pelaajan luistellessa 24 km/h nopeudella
- luistimen terä viiltää ihoa siten että Tuff-n-Lite sukka on päällä testiä tehdessä
- kuvista voi nähdä miten viiltosuojasukka estää tehokkaasti vaarallisen vamman syntymisen

Cut resistant testing was done on our protective skate socks by the certified testing lab CRIQ, Centre de Reserche du Quebec (www.criq.qc.ca) that conducts the test protocol for neck guards (they are mandatory in Quebec). The protective socks were put through the same test procedure they use when they test the cut resistance of a neck guard. The lab test simulates a 215 lb player skating at 15 mph over the test material. Following stringent testing protocol, they use a new sharpened skate blade for only 9 passes before changing it for a new one. They do three passes at different placements on each test material. The fabric is put over a thin piece of foam that is used to simulate skin and then put on the cylinder. After each test they check the foam for indentations which would represent/indicates cuts to the skin. Even if the material is not compromised, they check the foam to see if there are pressure cuts made through the material. For the first test, the material was stretched vertically over the foam and cylinder. Air pressure launched the cylinder with the material at 15 miles an hour at the skate blade which past directly on it. As the first picture shows, there is no compromise of the sock nor were there any pressure indentations/cuts on the foam. The material was then stretched diagonally beyond the normal width of a person’s calf/leg. On the first pass, the material compromised slightly. The foam/skin underneath had no indentations or cuts. The material is designed so that if it is ever compromised – it will not rip, tear or shred. The player would have had a surface cut compared to a severe injury if they had not been wearing our protective socks. Our socks offer players comfort, coolness and protection…
