Kizer Soulframe 60 - Rolling Review with Sam Crofts: Sam Crofts reviews our new Soulframe at the BAYSIXTY6 Skate Park in London.
After the success of the USD Aeon skate, we took a close look at its design in the development of the new Kizer Soulframe 60. We wanted to lower the center of gravity whilst increasing the direct feeling of grinding. It is completely made out of aluminum for maximum energy transfer, faster grinds, and designed specifically for the high-speed park, bowl skating, and coping grinds. Like the Aeon it is a non-UFS unibody soul plate with an integrated frame, to achieve the lowest center of gravity and widest split for flat setups, making it lighter and stronger whilst using fewer parts. Plate and frame are made out of 6061 aircraft aluminum, CNC machined to perfection and coming with the new Element II aluminum H-block. The frame is designed to hold a maximum of 4x60mm wheels for, what we consider to be the perfect flat setup. The Soulframe has predrilled and recessed mounting holes which are compatible fit most USD skates and also Salomons.
Our 3 pro winners from today thank you to everyone who came out and made it special.

Don’t underestimate the USD Sway 60 XXI.

An inline skate doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective. The USD Sway 60 XXI has a minimalist, reliable hard boot that’s designed to take on even the most demanding conditions. Complemented with a supportive cuff, comfortable liner, and a shock absorber that will help you land big grinds and even bigger grinds with confidence.

It comes with the proven KIZER Fluid V frame that’s designed for flat setups, giving you plenty of speed and stability, while incorporating a large central grind area that’s perfect for flat setups.

Sam Crofts skates the new Undercover Earth Project 110mm wheels in the London. A video by Tom Sharman.
What if your wheels could be reincarnated? Engineers at our POWERSLIDE Bindlach office worked hand in hand with MATTER urethane specialists to develop a new concept of inline skating wheels that could help reduce environmental impact. The UC Earth 110mm wheels are made of Eco polyurethane which is 45% corn-based and features a natural milky look that avoids the use of additional color pigments. The reflex hub is made of 100% recycled material. The speed/bullet profile and the 88A hardness complete the specs to make it one of the first urban eco-friendly wheels.
