Adrian Deck is a beast on the blades. Any type of blades. Whether he is freeskating through the city or doing big hammer tricks, Adrian will do it with speed, raw power and finesse. We love Adrian’s skating and wanted to celebrate this with an industry-first: a Signature skate spanning two models - the GTO and Brutale - at the same time!

The story of how Russell Day became an Adapt rider keeps reminding me of an old Chris Haffey interview in Daily Bread. Chris talked about buying his first skates from his now longtime sponsor.
For some reason, that felt right to me. The idea that one of the biggest superstars in blading once bought his skates from a small company just because he wanted to show his support strikes me.
There is nothing more flattering then a rider who buy’s the product just because he loves the brand and wants to support it. Russell Day wrote me an e-mail when we just started out with Adapt. Telling me how he liked the brand and wanted to try it out.
Already afraid we had another rider asking for free skates, he just replied he wanted to buy them. 5 years later, that same person who wrote us that e-mail, just received his first Adapt pro skate and had been a member of the Adapt family since day one.
On May 20, 2021, I’ve received a mood board from Ilia Savosin for this skate; the rest is history. It’s with so much joy that today we announce Ilia as a pro team member. We knew he would have a spot on the pro team almost immediately; his indisputable talent goes along with incredible professionalism that never stops to amaze me. I’m thrilled and honored to be working with such a determined, creative, and thoughtful mind. I’m also thrilled to be working together today at what I wish will be a long and successful career. Also, a huge thanks to the Russian crew that kept the secret and shot a masterpiece of a promo. - Martina Marg, Creative direction at Roces.

The year 2021 marked our 10 year anniversary. The past 10 years have been a rollercoaster ride, full of amazing moments that we will never forget! A lot of those memories were made on tour with the riders of the Adapt team. We want to thank all current and past Adapt riders for being part of those experiences. Thank you! - Olga and Pieter.
