Kyle G. gives you a quick rundown of the Valo Light BS.1 in this staff review and promo edit put together by Aggressive Mall.
Kyle normally rides a size 11-12 skate and was able to size down to the Valo Light in a size 10 with an 11 Trust Spec Ops liner. An exact quote from him on the set up “I love them, just don’t use the wrong hardware.”
Jon Julio pulled time out of his busy Valo schedule to answer some followup questions I had regarding the new Valo Lights that are scheduled to be released June 2011.
The rumors about the Valo light were flooding the Internet for a while. How long have you been working on the Valo light design before you released the final product?
Jon Julio: Hmm design wise.. at least 2 years.. maybe more..
Since the 1st preview at the 2011 winterclash , How has the rollerblading community responded to the idea and concept of the Valo Lights?
Jon Julio: I felt like it went really really good.. Def stoked to get the response that we did especially from kids who don’t ride valos.
Now that Valo has ventured into the carbon fiber market, do you feel the Valo lights will receive the same amount of support from the Valo masses as the original shell?
Jon Julio: Advantages of wider and lighter shell will help in a big way. Also having our original parts compatible with all the new Valo Light Parts will help recycle old styles with the new… We will see in June on the reaction! But so far so good. […]
