Clap Skate
Allowed only in long track racing, the clap skate has a blade that detaches at the heel, which allows the full length of the blade to remain on the ice for a much longer period of time, increasing speed. When the skate is lifted from the ice, the blade is snapped back into its original position by a spring-loaded hinge located under the ball of the foot. That produces a distinctive clapping sound that gives the skates their name. Also klap skates, often spelled as one word.
