Symetrics Frames - Overview/ Review by Rob Kellett

What’s up y’all. I’m back, well kinda… I actually filmed this review 2 years ago, however life just seemed to get busier and busier as time went on, and I never had the chance to properly edit it together until now. I still feel the same way about everything I discuss in the video, so I felt it was still very relevant to share - if not more so now, as I’ve had another 2 years of skating Symetrics frames, and have only come to love them more and more! - Robert Kellett.

Kizer Soulframe 60 - Speaking Specs with Eugen Enin

Kizer Soulframe 60 - Speaking Specs with Eugen Enin

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.

Kizer Soulframe 60 - Speaking Specs with Eugen Enin

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. Thanks Blade Tech.

Testing the Solá Street Frames: 'V2 H-Block' with Sascha Reichert (2021)

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.

50/50 - Some Exciting News (2018) by Lawrence Ingraham

50/50 - Some Exciting News (2018) by Lawrence Ingraham

I got back into blading in 2016 after taking 12 years off. Now I’m hooked, skating every weekend and sharing videos to help motivate people to come back to blading.

I was one of the owners of 50/50, the skate company that helped create the frame market. I never realized how much of an impact 50/50 made to the sport and how much I miss it today.

Last summer I started chatting with my old friend and 50/50 founder Jess Dyrenforth about the possibility of bringing it back. He dug through old emails and got me in contact with the original frame manufacturer.

After months of mould testing, I got a set of 50/50 Balance frames, fresh from the factory. Here they are, brand new 50/50 balance frames complete with Juice Blocks, fresh from the factory. I’m gonna skate them for the next few weeks to make sure they’re good, then if you’re interested, I’ll let you know where you can order your own set. - Lawrence Ingraham.
