With the speed of 4x80mm wheels combined with one of the most innovative and capable aggressive skates in recent history, it’s the USD AEON 80 Team. An instant classic, you’re going to love hitting the park and hitting the streets in this versatile aggressive skate that provides unmatched speed and performance. The unibody design of the USD AEON 80 Team brings the skate low to the ground even while riding 80mm wheels. By combining the boot, frame, and soul plate into a single piece, the USD AEON 80 Team needs fewer parts, reducing weight while giving you a solid base and excellent power transfer. The skate comes with a strong, supportive, two-way ‘rockerable’ cuff that wraps around your foot for maximum sideways support on grinds and carves while still providing good frontal flex for efficient strides. Skate all day long in the comfortable MYFIT Skinny Boy Dual-Fit Liner that gives you good cushioning on landings. Complete with fast 4x80mm UNDERCOVER Raw wheels and WICKED ABEC 9 bearings, there’s a lot to like about the AEON 80 Team. The ideal mix of an aggressive and urban skate, USD AEON 80 Team gives you all the speed and tools you need to get bigger air, land bigger gaps, grind further, slide longer, and redefine what’s possible on inline skates.

Kizer Soulframe 60 - Rolling Review With Sam Crofts

Kizer Soulframe 60 - Rolling Review With Sam Crofts

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.

The London Jam 2021 - Edit by Capital Rollas

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.
