When the UK decides to embrace the Euro and get some serious dental work, then they will be considered part of Europe. Until then, the UK will remain a little island in the Atlantic filled with snobby midgets who have funny accents, bad food, and worse teeth
This – “I thought the point of a footwrap was to has shoes that someone would actually want to wear. Stop wasting money and get a real sneaker designer in there conference!”
LMFAO This – “When the UK decides to embrace the Euro and get some serious dental work, then they will be considered part of Europe. Until then, the UK will remain a little island in the Atlantic filled with snobby midgets who have funny accents, bad food, and worse teeth”
“why would the uk want to be part of the EURO? its messed up for the rest of the countries going bankrupt and all… but on another note yes the uk falls under Europe just not part of the EU.” – I agree, it was wise for the UK not to use the Euro, however not only is it part of Europe, it IS actually part of the EU. They just get to play by their own set of rules… which is why the rest of Europe hates the UK. They have the benefits of being EU where it suits them and not being EU where it doesn’t.
If you people switched to other brands because you grew tired of waiting for new Xsjados, why did you skated them in the first place?!
I always thought choosing a skate is a matter of preference. Xsjados have unique feel, and no other skate emulates it. So if someone loves how Xsjado feel, why the hell he would switch from them to other brand skates, because of delayed release of 2.0s?!
“I’m tired of waiting so I’m going to skates other blades that have nothing in common with Xsjado instead of still produced, original Xsjados I like.”
Oh, there’s always a possibility that people who switched from Xsjados to other skates because of delay didn’t care about actual skates, but are hipsters who only want to ride what is cool at the moment…
Been awhile since i bothered looking at comments on this website; seems nothing has changed and rollernews is still full of cunts.
As for u.s.a having ‘the shit end’… you deserve it for once inawhile. The u.s almost always get priority with product releases etc and you have spots you can actually skate. Stop moaning and go rollerblading ya spoilt hick.
Still see no point. If you hate one piece cuff, you’ll hate 2.0 cuff too, as team put effort to make new cuff feel as close as possible to old one… I see the point with soulplates, but it basically only an issue for people with feet larger than EU43 and for those who wear really small sizes. Souls for sizes larger than 43 will be bigger than present M sizes souls anyway…
So if you hated first ones, you probably won’t like 2.0 either. As 2.0 are essentially refined, lighter version of first ones with parts redesigned to be less faulty. It’s not a revolutionary different skate ffs, it’s the same design with better execution.
The funny part is that I’m 100% sure that all the fucking idiots saying “I quite xsjado, too late…” “I switched brands”, “i give up” “blah blah blah”…are gonna be skating those 2.0′s sooner than they think.
YES they have been delayed.
YES its fucking annoying, because if consumers are annoyed…Imagine team riders and testers….give them a fucking break!
NO you will not regret the progress that has been made to JUST the soulplate…
and until you tried it…you will not be able to say a single bad thing about the skate.
the only thing you might not like, if you are a so called “xsjado lover” is the cuff. and if you don’t, well use your old cuffs. or order some for like 30$ and use the new paddings and soulplate and you will understand what a perfect skate feels like!
and to What! : the fact that you are using the word SNEAKER. clearly means you have no fucking taste in shoes and thank god xsjado isn’t listening to you to advance in the new footwraps.
then why change the cuff at all? if all they wanted to do was make a cuff feel like the original one, then why waste time making it? i’m glad they reworked the souls and backslide. the old ones were so slow and sticky after a few sessions. if the new cuff is like the old one and the souls are new, why does it take 2+ years to make it. you can take an old cuff and cut it down and add the new features yourself. as far as the souls, get the carbon souls and mod them for the xsjado cuff. save yourself $239 (and that’s what they’re going to sell for in the states, minus the shoe) and order less than $100 of parts to make something that will probably fit better and last longer.
Michael, by trying new Powerslide XC skeleton’s I have to admit new cuff feels totally different from Xsjado I. It will be different material (stiffer) used on Xsjado’s but shouldn’t be world of difference.
hahah the 2.0s feel different from the firsts. michael youre stupid. not everyone has a lot of money. i didnt when i first started skating. so buying one skate and buying another one soon afterwards hardly makes any sense to those that cant afford it. so stop being a fuckin retard about it
people should stop crying so much about these continuously being postponed. If you stopped skating xsjado because you were butt hurt that these haven’t arrived, you were probably a whiny bitch to begin with. These won’t be THAT MUCH different from the first xsjado, just lighter, and more forward flexibility. I personally don’t care if these take another 6 months. Xsjado is Xsjado, and switching from 1.0 to 2.0 won’t make you instantly learn illusion true top acids, so quit complaining and grow up.
What I don’t understand is they have inflated the prices so high, extra 100 buck for a full setup considering they are using the cuffs from carbons, the same Velcro straps as the old ones and same shitty looking trainers. Don’t understand the price hike..
Explain then FU what they have done that constitutes a 100 buck hike in cost, considering they launched the Doop Nordic range that will surely cover the cost of the new moulds that would needed to have been produced to make the new design, every other companies prices have remained constant over the past few years but Xsjado seem to be cashing in on the hype surrounding the 2.0
i agree with flynn. the mold for the cuff and soul was already in place. they changed a few things design wise, but they’re reusing stuff from the 1.0 or from other conference brands. i could see a marginal price increase but to go from a 1.0 skeleton to a 2.0 skeleton is quite a bit.
Flynn and Anonymous, if you don’t even see differences in baseplate for Xsjado 2.0 and Nordic/Doop line, don’t bother seeing difference between $100 and $200 bill.. Carbon IV Cuffs??? Are you really THAT blind?
And inline skating industry will be more than happy if you will invest and produce something new and will sell it for cheap! ;) Go-go-go-go Flynn!!!
