Meet the latest Remz weapon, a classy and stylish update of the acclaimed 2.0, the New Chris Haffey Signature 2.1
Along with conceiving the low-cut skin design pioneered on the 2.0 and matching his own “V-cut + strap” setup, Chris Haffey personally put a multitude of samples through the test to meet his high technical expectations.
The new 2.1 is updated with new skin materials and stronger eyelets, combines a modern yet classic color scheme reminiscent of the 2000 Remedyz (when Chris first started rocking Remz), and includes all the advanced features that made the 2.0 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.
As a reflection of Chris Haffey who recently took the title of World Champion (with the 2.1 on his feet), his New 2.1 signature model is a winner and might well make you a better skater!

On Saturday, November 5th, I rushed out of my house to meet up with Print Brigade co-owner Chris Piascik after sleeping through my alarm and waking up when we had planned to be on the road. We packed up our shirts and began the three-hour drive from Connecticut to Rye, New Hampshire for the 2010 WRS Finals.
I sat in the car thinking my rough start was surely a sign of things to come and tried to prepare myself for a very long day. Thanks to Chris’s lead foot we managed to make great time and arrived just minutes before ONE photographer Drew Amato and the rest of the CT crew. [...]
“Straight from my weekend in Seattle I got on a plane headed for New york and the worlds best street battle: The “Last Man Standing”.
My plan was simple, I would hook up with the Psyko Clothing guys for daily sessions and some online updates while Mason Richards and myself would shred and shoot with the Remz flow guys in NY to get some clips for this Remz edit.
Although not officially flow Jesus Medina is a street ninja and reps Remz hard, Dave Lang is an all around professional who’s got the energy and stamina of a sixteen year old, and Sean Agoliati was ripping till he broke his elbow.
In addition to meeting these gnarly dudes New york is a nonstop fun-house town where there is always something to do and see, something to skate, and somewhere to party.
I thank all the Remz guys who worked three days straight for this edit and Victor for a true street battle, I will most certainly be going back next year.”
This edit was filmed in one day and put together by Nick Wood during a visit to Seattle for the SBS10 organized by Jeremy Townsend.
“I showed up in Seattle on the Friday before SBS (Street Battle Seattle) just hoping to bro down with old friends like Jeremy Townsend and Al Dixon but when I called the Remz Flows from here and SoCal they were ready to jam!
All I wanted was a couple of clips to do a small Remz Seattle thing but these guys were ready to do it big: Cowen, Nacho, Kawika and Blee wanted to shoot hard, which I was not opposed to.
In one day we hit the city and they reminded me why I have such a belief in our Amateurs and the future of REMZ. I travel a lot and see a lot of people, but these guys impressed me.”

Great event and expect more from the REMZ Team before the year’s out!
