Xsjado unleashed their first solid 2.0 Chris Farmer 5 Skate. We all know Chris Farmer is in love with every improvement if the 2.0 skates.

We are proud to present this extremely high quality Carbon Free skate for Richie Eisler.
Richie Eisler paid exceptional attention to detail when creating this skate. The materials are of the highest quality leather and match his favourite shoes. The beauty of these skates is that the more worn they become, the better they look!
These skates are also come with the Kizer Level 2 frame, a 76mm flat frame that offers the perfect balance between a premium roll and a perfectly functional, grindable setup. Trying is believing!

The Original SL Skate was released in 2008, introducing the 2nd Pro Model for Brian Aragon. Simply named the Aragon 2.
Since that time Razors has introduced a number of SL models including Brian’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th skates along with models for Dre Powell, Stefan Horngacher, Alex Burston, Don Bambrick, Mathias Silhan and our most recent release for Jeph Howard.
One might say that each of these riders produced some of their best skating in the SL mold since the beginning of their careers as professionals. Not a surprise coming from a skate designed by skaters, specifically for skaters.
To this day, this is the only boot on the market that offers the baseless design, offering increased contact with grinds, lower center of gravity and a considerable drop in overall weight, while maintaining long lasting support.
Each piece of the SL skate is full replaceable, from the cuff to the buckle to each piece of the soul frame and Razors patented backslide plate. It also comes with a comfortable and streamlined Razors liner which allowed us to offer half sizes 7.5 & 9.5 fitting the smaller shell.
It is for these and many other reasons that we are excited for this release. Introducing the SL1.
Breast Cancer Care
During the process of designing the skate, Jenna Downing suffered from a Breast Cancer scare and decided that she wanted to draw awareness to the dangers of Breast Cancer that affect women across the world.
This has been symbolised by having a pink ribbon on the side of the skate. However, Jenna didn’t want to stop there as she has agreed to donate 100% of the profit she would make from this skate to Breast Cancer Care to help support their continued research.

eRolling: Seba has been making skates for a while now, however it is new to the Aggressive scene. What can you tell us about the brand and what made you want to enter this market ?
Sebastien Laffargue: From the beginning of Seba, we had the idea to create skates which can do everything we like to do on skates. From 2007, 2 years after the first Seba models came out in the shops, we already started to develop soul plates and aggressive parts.
We did many different prototypes but we never arrived to a point to finish a pure aggressive skate. We came to the first step with the FR-A, which is mostly for freeride, but able to do also few aggressive tricks. The project of a purely aggressive skate came back to life when Anthony Finocchiaro joined our team and when CJ Wellsmore started to use our skates and made an edit with GT skates. We naturally met him and shared our ideas, and we decided to start the CJ skate project. [...]
The brand new CJ Wellsmore Pro Model skate will be available in the shops worldwide in autumn 2013.
This skate is made with carbon fiber, and will be one of the lightest of the market. Thanks to the rockering system, the SEBA street frame can be mounted with up to 4X64mm wheels. It comes originally mounted with antirockers and CJ Wellsmore 60mm wheels.
