Previously: Remedyz True Balance, Press Release.
With the HR1.2 we’re introducing a new generation ‘true-balance’ boot with an adjusted location of the frame that eliminates the outwards bending of Remz skates, resulting in a lot more balanced and comfortable position of the foot inside the boot and a skate that will stay strong longer.
“I feel much more solid in my Remz than I ever had before” says Chris Haffey about the HR1.2.
“It feels so much more natural to be truly balanced over the frame and it took no time to adjust at all. Landings got more solid instantly and even just standing in the skate feels better.”
We never cut corners and stepped it up with the HR1.2, a well-thought-out skate blending great style & superior technique that deserves top place on your list. No joke!

Quoting Kato (Remz and Franky Morales part ways):
We didn’t anticipate parting ways and there has been a common project in the works for the past few months, a second Franky OS skate, which we both decided to still release soon. [...]
We didn’t anticipate parting ways and there has been a common project in the works for the past few months, a second Franky OS skate, which we both decided to still release soon.
Doing what you love, be it skating at pro level or running a skate company, can also have a tough business side to it and some decisions can be hard to make.
Kato and Franky have come to this mutually and believe it will ultimately create a better situation for everyone involved.
We look forward to the future and new team opportunities with excitement and anticipation, and wish Franky well wherever his path may lead.
Meet the new spiced up version of Chris’ acclaimed Signature model, a true weapon in disguise, the Chris Haffey 2.2.
Along with conceiving the low-cut skin design pioneered on the 2.0 and matching his own “V-cut + strap” setup, Chris personally put a multitude of samples through the test to meet his high technical expectations.
This new Limited Edition 2.2 features a groovy colorway that is sure to turn heads and includes all the advanced features that made the 2.0 and 2.1 a top-seller such as the redesigned rear lacing system, the precise neoprene liner with softer shock-absorber, strong hockey laces giving the skate a distinctive and athletic look, and the new concept of High Resilience (HR) construction providing optimum control & foot support.
“It sucks your foot in there and keeps it right where it needs to be so you’re in complete control at all times” says Chris about the Remz HR concept that he helped develop.
For this latest version of its OS4 Color Series Remz inspired charismatic Pro Nick Wood [aka The Woodster] to come up with his own thing!
Renown for his positive and facetious outlook on skating the unique Woodster chose silver, or more precisely “keg silver”, because for Nick it’s always time to have a good time and enjoy skating for what it is: fun!
The OS4 Nick Wood Edition skate has all the proven features of the OS4 including Remz’s Open Shell liner providing great support & comfort, a fast lacing system, the original Remz V-cuff for optimum maneuverability and shoe-feel, reinforced straps, and a minimalist design making it one of the slimmest and lightest skate in the industry today.
Features: Remz Open Shell Concept, New Remz OS liner, Silver “Party Time” parts, Remz original V-Cuff, Reinforced straps, Replaceable one-piece Soul frame, Replaceable backslide plate, 56mm-90A Remz high performance Wheels, 42mm Anti-rocker wheels, ABEC 3 bearings.
