1. Will the Valo Lights be available for sale at either Winterclash or BCSD?
We will only be debuting the skate for show. They will be available for sale at your favorite skate shop internationally and USA this spring.
At Winterclash we won’t be selling “other” Valo skates, but at BCSD we will be selling “other” Valo Skates. We will also have some limited edition items available for either giveaway and/or for sale. Come check us out at our booths!
2. What makes the Valo Light different from any other Valo? Will it be lighter? Is it made out of carbon? Will it have a new shape? Is the shell shape different than the current shell? Also will they be pre toe-cut?
The Valo Light will have a new carbon shell with an all-new shape. The Valo Light is 1.1 lbs (half a kilo) lighter than the original Valo Skate.
The Valo Light is now proven to accommodate a wider and longer foot. The new shell interior is 5 mm wider and 5 mm longer in length.
Through the 1.5 – 2 years of testing, Alex Broskow, Erik Bailey, Jon Julio and Brandon Smith have all had to down size from a size 8 (US) skate to a size 7 (US) skate due to the amount new found space available in the new shells.
We look forward to solving problems for people who may have wanted to ride Valo skates but have had a sizing problem and/or weight problems for Valo skates.
3. So I rock a size 10 T.V.2. I can also skate size 9 toe cuts. You think I’d be able to fit a 9 Light (no toe cut)? Let me know guys…
