The Featherlite Frame keeps what its name promises: 22% less weight than traditional GC frames yet stronger than ever.
This revolutionary design is the brainchild of Stefan “Horn” Horngacher, one of Europeâ€™s most progressive and innovative skaters. His idea was to make a solid one piece frame, increase the wall thickness in the grinding area but significantly reducing it in the upper area where it will never touch the ground.
The result is a frame which is extremely stiff, light weight and provides maximum strength. The featherlite frame also incorporates GCâ€™s signature symmetrical design and low profile..
