First of all I have to say that this review is based on my personal experiences and opinions. I know it sounds really positive but that´s just because I`m seriously in love with the carbon II.
As I skated the deshi carbon, several Usd carbons, a prototype of the carbon II and now the carbon II white I thought some people might be interested in what I have to say about the skate.
One day I received a parcle from Usd. I thought it was the new clothing line and I was right. But the parcle also contained a pair of carbon II`s. I don`t know if the skate weights even less than the “old” carbons but it`s defninitely extremely light. […]
The Chosen Few Final Street Comp for 2010 in Los Angeles California turned out to be more insane than we expected. Check out all the amazing stuff that went down in our first official edit done by Steve Henry.
Stefan Brandow is one of those rollerbladers who gives you a lot of hope for the future of our sport. Stefan simply “gets it.” He is ahead of the curve in the blading community.
When he goes out and films for his video parts, or online edits for sponsors, his understanding of progression shines through, a mixture of both raw talent and an impeccable eye for creative detail. He does unique maneuvers because doing things that are unique and question the current state of our sport is something that flows naturally through his rollerblading thought process.
Stefan embodies the creative and energetic aspect from the serious side of blading, but embraces it with an ease and grace that is rare amongst rollerbladers his age. He is doing everything right and with a smile on his face. To someone like him, the pressure of progression is no match for the natural eye he posses for incredible eye-pleasing skating.
