Ivo from This Is Soul skateshop in Amsterdam bought some deadstock, mint condition Salomon ST90 2 from some seedy corner of the internet and since I used to own a couple of pairs of Salomons and remembered how comfortable they were, I needed to get my grubby paws in them quickly.
One thing I remembered as well was that the grinding was not my favourite part of skating them. The decision to use Adapt Symetrics Soulplates was easy, since Toe Bee had already done the research on several pairs of Salos himself, and was willing to share what little he knew.
So off to Beer Hendrik’s workshop I went. Feeling guilty that he was doing most of the work I decided to film his bladecraftmansship. All I had was my Iphone 5S but it had to do.
Have a good look at how easy it it to modify the Symetrics plate to fit any skate with a flat bottom. Now time to destroy them on some rough terrain! – Remy Cadier.
