Alchemy Pure Air Skate

Alchemy Pure Air Skate

Alchemy are proud to announce the launch of their new and totally exclusive Alchemy Pure AIR.

The AIR features an exclusive sole plate that has been designed, developed and tested by Alchemy riders.

The strong one piece sole plates are made from lightweight PA material that will give you the perfect combination of control and speed when grinding. The outer and inner soles come with plenty of space to develop sole based grinds.

The backslide grooves are centrally aligned with the h-block to assist when balancing grinds. The backslide area is well defined meaning the grooves wear to a riders individual style.

Alchemy have continued with the minimalist feel, featuring stylish and subtle details.

BOOT: Two piece Pure PU Hard boot with exclusive Alchemy sole plates, spring buckle and lace lock system. Stylish stitched detail on the ultra comfort liner with oversized shock absorbing heel pad.

WHEEL: 58mm 94A Alchemy Team wheel

BEARINGS: ABEC-5 Speedstar

Alchemy Skates are proud to announce the launch of their new skate and team for 2009.

The first skate release in the PURE series arrives February 1st.

The concept behind the Alchemy PURE is simplicity. We have kept everything about the design and aesthetics minimal to give you a solid, reliable and stylish skate. The shell is pure white giving you a blank canvas that you can customise to fit your own style.

Alchemy: Press Release & Edit

Monday, September 29th, 2008


A New Beginning.

It’s time to clear up the crap surrounding Alchemy.

As it stands, there is less than a handful of reputable boot companies in the blading world who actually give a shit and put back into the industry. Over the first two years of Alchemy we’ve already sponsored some of the UK’s highest profile comps, help fund skateparks, flowed product to up and coming riders and established the respect of the UK’s most influential characters. Anyone that had their eyes open at this years NASS should have noticed the abundance of Alchemy banners on the street course as well as hammers dropped from our first official rider, Andy Gilbert.

If we wanted an easy ride we wouldn’t bother putting back into the industry.

The cynics may argue that we’re trying to get a quick buck from rollerblading but Alchemy was born from a distributor who has been releasing aggressive skates for the past ten years. And after watching the standard of the UK scene evolve, we realised it was time to develop the first pro level boot company from the UK.

To develop Alchemy, the distributor teamed up with some of the best UK rollerbladers as we knew this had to be a brand for skaters, by skaters. Everyone involved with Alchemy had the same vision; to create a high quality boot company at a reasonable price, from a UK brand with longevity.

Anyone that thinks there’s easy money to be made in creating a boot company from scratch needs to question their own sanity. Especially in the current rollerblading climate where some major boot companies have made their quick buck in the industry’s peak, and left when times got hard. We at Alchemy understand that to get back, you first have to put in.

Instead, we’ve been busting our guts hooking up riders, travelling to comps, shooting edits and developing our skates. We can’t give too much away, but keep your eyes peeled for more news on a full team and future product developments.

Alchemy is here to stay.

Alchemy is a UK Brand known for his wheels & freestyles frames (more infos about Alchemy here). It seems that the brand will release a skate, which might be the lightest skate ever (?).

Alchemy are keeping this one close to their chest! They’re not releasing any specs or photos until the official launch this spring but rumor has it this skate could possibly be the lightest aggressive skate…. ever!
