I got the kaltik flat frame about two weeks ago and have skated it only a handful of times. The frame is one of my favorite to date.
The last flat frame I skated was the element and I hated it. I’ve skate anti since the 90s and i can count on my hands the number of times i tried flat.
The frame is really well designed its thick where it needs to be and thin where it can be. They did all the could do to keep the weight down with out sacrificing the durability of the frame.
Everyone has been talking about the groove so i’ll give some insight into that. its not high like some may think its a standard height, it looks tall due to the wheel wells. people keep saying the its going to wear down into the wheels an there right but it truly doesn’t effect any thing the wheels still roll fine.
On ledges you still catch form time to time but on rails they lock perfect and you don’t get any hang up. now the only problem i have with the frame is it comes in two sizes and the wheel base for the small is to small for any other boots bigger then a 6-7 besides maybe carbons. but overall the frame is great it slide pretty good not the fastest but defiantly not slow.

I’ve been skating these frames for about a week now, i skate them with 58mm wheels and they’re unbelievably good.
I forgot how nice a flat set up feels ; Podge filmed the edit over two days and i skated stuff that has either notches or cracks in it to test them out, i had no problems with sticking at all and im really enjoying the flatness!
The guys @ Kaltik are pleased to say the flat frame will be on the shelf in the coming weeks.
