Our second season begins with a signature wheel release for new team rider Yandriel Silverio Silverio. The wheels are 58mm and come bundled in a set of 8 with mixed hardnesses 4x 58mm/90a and 4x 58mm/92a. These wheels are a rounded bullet profile, great for skating flat on low profile frames or for added control on any antirocker setup. - Chroma Wheels.

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. Thanks Blade Tech.

We are proud to announce Dominic Bruce new section celebrating his second pro wheel (61mm 92a) with us. Filmed over the course of a week by Martin Danning. Wheel graphic spawned by Carl Benny Robert.
Tried and tested to be one of the most durable, from Dom’s experience they are fast and long lasting wheels. This 62mm and 92a hardness profile with premium white urethane, which is ideal for a mix of street and park, deep thought and attention has gone into making this wheel what it is. We are also happy to share with you the second edition of Dom’s wheel, brought to life by Carl Benny Robert’s rich imaginative graphics.

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.
