Eugen Enin on USD Aeon 72 XXI (Germany, 2021) - USD Skates Edit by Daniel Enin

The Aeon 72 XXI (710176) skate is the modern classic of aggressive street skating. USD took it right back to the drawing board with the design of this skate, shattering all expectations and dismissing the UFS frame system, completely reworking our understanding of an aggressive skate and bringing the design back to basics. The unibody concept defines this unique design, creating the lowest, lightest skate possible with unparalleled energy transfer in every stride.

One step back, two steps forward. With a single-piece construction, the weight is drastically reduced whilst the strength of the boot is immensely increased, you’ll never snap another frame again. The unibody concept allows for the widest H-block split possible, making this the best flat set up skate ever created, keeping you safe from wheel bite on all H-block tricks.

The Aeon 72 allows you to ride a full flat set up of 72mm wheels and comes with the new USD Team wheels, which are fast and long-lasting. The skate is completed with the dual-fit MYFIT liners. The stretchy neoprene toes allow for 2 sizes to be catered to with a single liner, giving perfect comfort and support in every session. The new WCD ABEC 9 bearings make this skate now even faster and the new soft top for the lacing even better looking.

USD Aeon 60 Nick Lomax Pro Skates

USD Aeon 60 Nick Lomax Pro Skates

When USD decides to design a new skate, you can be sure it will be a game changer. Once the decision to create a new aggressive inline skate had been made, we had to be sure that it would stand out from the crowd. We decided to break the rules that have been abided by for the past 14 years, and think outside the box – why does a skate need so much hardware? Is UFS really the best solution?

USD Aeon 60 Nick Lomax Pro Skates

For USD, the Aeon would be about performance, the key word in the creative project. We designed an affordable, high performance skate that combines the boot and soulplate (unibody), minimizing hardware and moving you closer to the ground, enabling perfect control while at the same time maximizing the possibilities of larger wheel use with all the benefits of this new, low center of gravity.

You heard right. This skate is not UFS Compatible. Are we crazy? Consider this: UFS was invented as a standard mounting system many years ago and is optimized for a maximum wheel size of 60mm. But since its creation, larger wheels such as 72mm have become popular again, a wheel size that reminds us of the popularity of OG blading roots, allowing better roll while enabling great control and space to grind.

We are proud to announce that with our new unibody design our boot is actually lower with 61mm wheels than many other skates that use 58 or 55mm wheels. Remember when USD made the first ever carbon skate for aggressive skaters? We took a risk, and revolutionized the skate industry, and now we’re doing it again. The USD Aeon has been designed from scratch to be affordable while being perfect right out of the box. If you’re worried about not being able to change the frames, complete unibody shells including soulplate and frames will of course be available straight away.

The USD Aeon Skate is therefore a one piece, lightweight and comfortable skate with the lowest profile ever made, allowing for a whole new level of advance performance for street skaters worldwide.

The rebirth of the hardboot

  • Unibody construction with lightweight one-piece shell, soulplate and frame.
  • 60mm flat frame: counter-sunk wheel cut outs for lowest profile possible, internal reinforcements for increased rigidity, side sliders, 256mm wheel base (size 41 EU), 78mm groove width (size 41 EU), metal spacers.
  • Aeon soulplate: perfectly shaped groove, reduced friction due to offset soul sliders, same width plates for controlled cess slides, optimized plate-frame angle.
  • replaceable 45° Velcro Power strap
  • 2-way rockerable V-Cuff
  • Aeon Shock Absorber
  • MYFIT Dual Fit Skinny Boy liner: 100% heat mouldable, adjustable, anatomical ankle padding with perfect heel lock, thin & stretchable front part, comfortable thick padded ankle part, laceable top part.
  • USD Aeon wheels: 61mm, 90A SHR, flat profile.
  • WCD Abec 7 bearings: 7 Freespin chrome steel balls, 2RZ rubber coating, synthetic oil.

USD Aeon 60 Sam Crofts II Pro Skates

USD Aeon 60 Sam Crofts II Pro Skates

USD is proud to reveal the Aeon Crofts II, the first full skinned USD Aeon.

USD Aeon 60 Sam Crofts II Pro Skates

Sam Crofts second pro Aeon features the same classic Aeon unibody construction but with a full premium real suede upper and comes as standard with the highly anticipated second generation Aeon cuff. The new suede skin is double stitched along its’ contours and extra reinforced with a dense overstitch and rivets at the high stress points.

The skate also features Sam’s pro Myfitliner Second Skin liner, waxed hockey style laces, an upgraded thicker shock absorber, high speed UHR (Ultra High Rebound) wheels and Abec 7 Wicked Bearings. A full upgrade and revamp of the modern classic of aggressive street skating.

“For my latest pro skate from USD I’ve chosen another Aeon 60. The Aeon skate series is a project that I’ve been involved with since the start and is a product I’ve come to identify my skating within, making it the obvious choice again for my new pro model. This time I worked with the design team to create a skinned version to soften the overall look of the skate and give it a more classic sneaker aesthetic. We also developed a new taller height-adjustable cuff to give you a slight increase in flex for topsides but also offers more support and allows for more comfortable and longer skating sessions. I removed the 45-degree strap as I think waxed laced alone provides a sufficient heel lock. The skate comes with 61mm USD Team wheels, Wicked ABEC 9 bearings, and lastly to complete the skate I chose my favorite liner, the MyFit 2nd skin. I added some personal details to the liner to represent London, the city I call home.” Text by Sam Crofts.

The new USD Aeon Roman Abrate Pro 68 is now available world wide!

Usd Aeon Abrate 68 - Roman Abrate Pro Skate (December 2020)

“After skating the USD Seven for five years I wanted to try something new to help me go faster and air higher in the big parks and transitions. So I started experimenting with using 68mm wheels in the Aeon 72mm shell and quickly fell in love with this new set up. The Aeon’s unibody concept plus larger wheels allow me to maximize my energy transfer on larger transitions helping me to maintain speed in my contest runs. Using a slightly smaller wheel in the 72mm Aeon shell gives me plenty of space to still confidently do all my h-block grinds whilst slightly reducing my ride height without losing any excess speed.

I also worked with my wheel sponsor Undercover to develop the apex wheel and have included these in my set up. I selected a unique colorway, added a soft top, the new improved cuff, and of course my favorite MyFit 2nd skin liners for comfort and performance to complete my latest and fastest pro skate”. - Roman Abrate.
