After testing the Sola Frame street version with the V1 H-Block I got some V2 H-Block and tried them out, really interesting that the shape of a H-Block can change so much. - Sascha Reichert.
About the Sola Street Frames - V2 H-Block (2020-1 - Price: $179, 140€)
Precision, Strength and Control. The Solá Equipment Street Frames were born from a dialogue between Kyle Solá and Dominik Wagner regarding the optimal flat-rocker frame, and the reintroduction of a lightweight metal construction into street skating.
The feedback-driven development process led to the prototyping of the first development prototypes in 2015. With the valuable inputs from Dominik Wagner and Joe Atkinson, prototypes were continuously developed, tested and improved through to the first production in 2018.

It’s me again talking shit on YouTube about the new 50/50 Prime Frame and how they skate. Because I am still fat and old the tricks are no hammers :P - Sascha Reichert.
I haven’t been this excited about a new skate product in years. The Oysi (aka Oysius) frames feature a wide split, built in rocker and a groove to prevent wheel bite. They’re a dream come true, or are they?
I tried them out in the neighborhood then took them to the Durham skate park to see how they hold up. - Lawrence Ingraham.
