EDEA is the Merlo family that started Risport and built thirty years of experience in the skating field. They sold Risport. After a long period of very thorough research and study of the needs of figure skating (both Ice and Roller), they searched for new technologies, concepts, materials, and manufacturing processes to provide solutions which have become the evolutionary “idea”, or EDEA in Italian.
Since 2000, EDEA has been the essence of quality, care and service provided by the artisans and craftsmen of Italia.
