There comes a time when enough is enough. In this case, it was time to put Mr. Franken on a different level. This much deserved first edition signature pro wheel comes in a great time when rollerblading needs both a new wave of upcoming professionals and quality products to go along with their names.
Tim Franken‘s wheel is a 58mm / 90a black tempered urethane. It is poured over a solid urethane high density shock resistant core that can withstand the greatest impacts in the inline market.
The urethane has a high rebound, and is developed to not chunk or split the urethane with significant wear timeline. This is a double-sided printed wheel. Same logo both sides, white ink. – Scribeindustries.com.
First off we’d like to apologize for the lateness of this new update. We have been diligently coordinating with our factory to get the last few details of the latest parts we received worked out. [...]
As you can see we have received the latest samples for the CRS frame chassis, urethane spacers, stainless steel spacer sliders, rigid spacers, and axles (photos). These new parts have taken longer than we had hoped to arrive so unfortunately there has been additional time added to our completion estimation. [...]
One of the new delay factors is that we will have to wait until the Chinese New Years vacation is over to proceed, as our factory and all its workers will be on break for the next 3 weeks. This is the only time off they get during the entire year so we are waiting patiently till they get back to continue with the process of getting our project under wraps. We expect the factory workers to be back by the middle of February so we expect production to begin by the end of that month. This will push the completion and ship date of the frames till late Spring. [...] – The CRS Development Team.
Here is an update to the Powerblading Anti-Rocker Prototype Frames by Maciej Malinek (first post, november 2013).
My name is Maciej Malicki. I am 28 years old. I live in Warsaw (Poland). I have a higher technical education. I’m interested in developing the study of materials and machine parts. Blah blah blah. I have been skating for 14 years. [...] Interview on Hedonskateblog.com.
The brand new Kizer Level III is out now. Enjoy combining rolling with your grinding like never before!
The Kizer Level 3 has breached the gap between big and small wheels. No more do you have to be limited by speed or ability to grind. The Kizer Level 2 showed that any trick is possible even with 76mm wheels.
Now the same design team that brought you the Kizer Level 2 presents the Kizer Level 3. A 72mm flat frame that has been designed with careful attention to logic and physics to allow you a frame that performs perfectly for aggressive skating, while giving you a much needed boost when it comes to speed.
Kizer continues its legacy as the frame company that isn’t afraid of pushing into new territories, and the Level 3 frame is the latest in a series of evolutions in frame technology.
