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.

On September 11th we held this year’s LDN Jam in South London next to the river Thames after not being able to hold one last year due to a global pandemic we did not know how this one would turn out. But we had a budget something we have never had before and we set to work organising the event from buying wood and materials ordering medals sorting out money to pay the Filmer and editors along with staff on the day.
And we could not be more proud of how it turned out so sit back and enjoy this years edition. We would like to thank everybody who has been supported the brand so far and to all the sponsors that sent us prizes without you guys we are nothing! - Capital Rollas.

For 2021, USD made a really good thing even better. Say hello to the AEON Basic 60 XXI, a versatile aggressive skate that gives you all the tools to bring your skate game to the next level. Designed with a durable hard boot unibody that incorporates the boot and frame into a single piece, giving you a low center of gravity that provides excellent control and stability. We listen to skaters and appreciate their feedback. We heard you loud and clear when designing the USD AEON Basic 60 XXI; it comes with a new thicker shock absorber and a taller cuff that is also height adjustable. With a huge central grind area between the 2nd and 3rd wheel and a fast, wide soul plate, the AEON Basic 60 XXI is meant for big, long grinds and pushing the limits of what’s possible on aggressive skates. Riding on new USD 61mm wheels with an improved core and WICKED ABEC 9 bearings, this impressive aggressive skate gives you comfort, support, durability, and performance right out of the box.
Few of the gang took a well needed trip away down to Cornwall for some sun sea skate and thunder storms nearly losing the tent one night and the gazebo not being as lucky.. while they got really lucky with the weather a few days one day they took no chances and book themselves into the newly redone Mounthawk skate park witch did not disappoint. - Capital Rollas.

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.
