With the desire to make this new skate available to a lower budget we took the time to talk to companies about making special plastic blends that could serve to re-create the Carbon effect at a more affordable price.
After two meetings with DuPont we were told that they had the perfect plastic for us: DuPont Hytrel TPC-ET Thermoplastic polyester elastomer.
Hytrel, a thermoplastic and elastomer in one. Hytrel thermoplastic polyester elastomers provide the flexibility of rubber, the strength of plastic and the processibility of thermoplastics.
Hytrel is also available in a full range of Shore D hardness (30D to 82D). Special grades are heat stabilized, flame retardant and blow molded. Concentrates include black pigments, UV protection additives, hydrolysis resistant additives, heat stabilizers and flame retardants.

Street is where our sport will always shine above anything else. It is how Rollerblading has evolved and progressed over the years.
We organize events like this so all skaters of all ages can come and enjoy a spectacular skate event like they won’t see or experience anywhere else.
We work hard to put on these events with organizers around the world so any skater can come out and compete in a real competition and feel that awesome adrenaline pumping and exciting feeling we all get when we know something great is about to happen.
Enjoy this highlight reel of our five competitions from last year and we hope to see everyone at one or all of our events this year. -ACF
