    LOT of you kids which have tried and held in your arms only several skates in your life don’t know shit..

    It’s all about material DENSITY. You would probably be SOOO amazed to see how light are USD Realm skates which are USD’s pricepoint skate. ;) Actually I will post it tomorrow here so you know, also USD Seven’s which could actually outperform even Carbon’s in weight.

    You don’t even bother that, for example, cheapest recreational skates are the most lightest?! How? Again – DENSITY. Cheap materials are with less density than more expensive. Like flexible plastic, foams inside lining etc. You probably wonder why K2 Varsity skate are pretty light? Well cheap materials do their job. Other skates are just with too much unnecessary on them.

    USD Carbon’s are made of highest quality material and they don’t have anything unnecessary. They are the most developed skate on the market, that’s why it is not cheap and that’s why it’s lightest.

    And if there are some people whoe’s feet is hurt by carbon 2’s – I feel really sorry for you. There’s nothing left for you.. grab your cheap plastic skates with pillow liner and keep skating.

    if the skates had 300 more grams of foam they probably wouldn’t have killed my feet like they did :)
    been doing much better with my new haffeys thank you

    No i don’t, because i don´t skate in a speedsuit to save weight.

  • Ulysses Rivera

    Carbon’s are nice enough skates, but they are pricey. If you have the money for it, knock yourself out and get a pair.

    Only weight weenies care that much about the actual weight though.

    Funny video, but I’d like to see a video from an unbiased source. Just to keep things “fair.”

    Bottom line in my opinion: Skate what feels good on your feet, and what works for you. Not what looks good on a scale.

    What about the others USD skates? Like Classic Thrones and UFS thrones! Those are heavy as hell!

    And the way they ‘forgot’ to put the OS skates was hilarious!

    Other then that, the carbon 2s do feels really nice.. (But i still love my thrones!)

    cults are only 6oz. heavier, jus sayin`

  • Paul

    Who gives a f… about weight ??? Don’t you prefer skates that don’t go in pieces after a month ? Skates that don’t destroy your ankles, toes, etc , after an hour skating ? Come on …

    bahaha…USD ftmfw! Best Skate on the planet. USD is making all others look obsolete. Plus, they have the best skater in the world on their team- Julien Cudot.

    shima blows

  • The Truth

    You get what you pay for. So pay for the best. USD is making other skates look amateur. Shima is using an old mold, how pathetic.

    my skates suck

  • http://x.x~ x.x

    if u like ride a fat b*tch go ahead, i like mine slim n light.

    anyway in all sport eveything is better with its lighter. motorsport,cycling,running shoes, etc. who needs the extra weight anyway. it just holding u down.

    props to usd for shaking this industry

  • senate

    so funny that people worry about weight of their skates… weight helps with momentum in skating park. I SHIT THAT MUCH WEIGHT DIFFERENCE> JUST SHIT BEFORE YOU FUCKING SKATE.

  • Anonymous

    take a look at that list and see how the horns are completely misplaced for their weight

  • http://........ ..

    I hope the people talkin have sated them!

    Carbons don’t feel good! there hard, low not supportive at all.!

    I doesnt matter how heavy are the skates! Carbons were the first light skates. but untill then noone complaned!… and i still went back to shima skates from carbons, you just gotta take a size smaller and cut it a bit..

    Usd is thinkin about money… Shima is a real skater selling rewal skates, not a business man trying to make everyone buy sports car skates….
    Fuck Carbons

  • Rob

    .. ^ USD is supporting this industry more than Shima does and will ever do. You are probably teenager or just domb uneducated to say those words about money. Parents gave money for your skates? Have you really skated Carbon II’s? haha

  • Rob

    And for those who didn’t read my previous statement. It’s all about material density and usage when it comes to skate weight. Less density materials are used on cheap skates. When it comes to more expensive materials, they are in most cases heavier. It’s all about how smart you will make skate to find best balance between weight and material choice.

    And lastly, “WORRIED ABOUT YOUR SKATE WEIGHT”? If not, this add doesn’t concern to you. Why so much negative? These are actual facts about skate weight.

  • Rob

    To prove my words about material density to people who might want to think outside the box And for those who think other USD skates are heavy.. well there you go ->

    So Rob you don’t work for USD or anything do you? HAHA! I have owned carbon II’s. I honestly didn’t like them. Also, this is rollerblading. I honestly can’t understand the business model of making a skate that is so damn expensive with a liner that can’t be replaced. Especially if you care about rollerbladers themselves. Maybe it’s just me but in the last year or so USD has seemed to have gained a lot of shady business practices. I will never buy a USD product for the simple fact that they are seriously lacking in business ethics these days.
