Underestimated, sometimes. Underrated, maybe. Out-skated, never. Iain McLeod has been on a professional level for what seems like forever. 2 pro skates, 3 pro frames, 3 pro wheels… and counting.
Always a leader in both the tech and stunt aspects of blading, his ability to land some of the largest gaps, grind near impossible rails, and progress the ledge game further than few could have dreamed, continues to amaze anyone who’s seen him skate.
When asked how he does it, he simply smiles and says ‘practice.’ Fact is, within the 16 years he’s been on blades, you can probably count the number of days Iain hasn’t skated on both hands. This kid loves blading and his skating deserves -scratch that- demands respect.
It is for these and many other reasons that we are introducing the Iain McLeod Pro Skate.
Featuring the Razors Genesys boot with all the trimmings. This steel blue boot includes replaceable 1-piece soul frames, backslide plates, Genesys liners, Ground Control FLT2 frames, and Signature Iain McLeod Undercover Wheels, all wrapped up with white/blue hockey laces and matching blue, white and black trim.
Features: GC FLT2 frame, Genesys liner with extra thick padding, McLeod Undercover ‘Duck Hunt’ Wheels (56mm/89a), Replaceable 1-piece soul frame, Replaceable backslide plate, Perfectly aligned backslide plate groove, 42 mm anti-rocker wheels, Oversized heel pad, Razors tool, ABEC 7 bearings. Sizes: 6-14, plus size 10.5
You may remember the pics (posted on July 5th) of the interesting Xsjado Remz OS hybrid prototype skates. Here is more infos of Andrei Clompos final project for his design master courses:
“It is a study of history of rollerblading, an analytical and comparative study of almost all models on the market and my vision about a pair of skates (a usable one).
This study is dedicated to the best romanian rollerblader Mircea Mocanu (Bobo), who died in 2009 (RIP)”.

With the HR1.2 we’re introducing a new generation ‘true-balance’ boot with an adjusted location of the frame that eliminates the outwards bending of Remz skates, resulting in a lot more balanced and comfortable position of the foot inside the boot and a skate that will stay strong longer.
“I feel much more solid in my Remz than I ever had before” says Chris Haffey about the HR1.2.
“It feels so much more natural to be truly balanced over the frame and it took no time to adjust at all. Landings got more solid instantly and even just standing in the skate feels better.”
We never cut corners and stepped it up with the HR1.2, a well-thought-out skate blending great style & superior technique that deserves top place on your list. No joke!

Available on pre-order. These skates will be in stores from the 28th of June.
USD is preparing to release IV, a skate that represents technicality fused with function and quality and features a number of exciting new developments including a customizable cuff for an optional V-Cut.
This is the first V-Cut in aggressive that allows you to skate with or without the V-cuff support as you wish. With 3 simple screws, you can enjoy a brand new sensation of Carbon skating.
Adding to his, the Carbon IV also offers a removable liner that feels almost like a second skin. Thin, heat moldable and perfectly formed to the boot, this will satisfy those that enjoy the feeling of a removable liner.
Furthermore the boot features hidden laces and real leather / cordura nylon combination for the upper.
To complete the IV, USD added extra boot protection as well as a reinforced carbon fiber shell and a replaceable midstrap, allowing for maximum skate life and even more options for customisation in the future.
