Razors just recently dropped their newest Pro model skate, The Yuri 2 Pro skate. Like most other Razors pro skates this is a Razors SL or super light style skate. These skates are known for their extremely solid construction while being one of the lightest skates on the market. Yuri Botelho is known for shredding everything in his path so you know these skates are going to be tough enough to hold up to the abuse of skating. Perfect for all types of skating, street or park, beginner or advanced. Like other Razors SL pro skates these come with a skin on the outer shell, which overall give the skate a better look and feel with more comfort. This particular skin features an all new kevlar abrasive resistant material on the toe and heel panels of the upper skin. This kevlar material is very tough and rugged which will help prolong the life of the skates.
The Liners: Razors SL-2 LinersRazors liners have always been known for being comfy right out the box with a ton of padding. Razors recently made their liners even better with a few changes. A new more anatomical articulated tongue adds even more comfort and forms to your ankle much better. They’ve removed the inner lacing to make the liner less bulky but kept the elastic ankle strap to keep the tongue tight to your foot. Neoprene toe and heel panels help to alleviate pressure points and let these liners stretch and form to your feet.
The Frames: Ground Control Featherlite 3 Frames The Ground Control Featherlite 3 frames are some of the best frames out right now. Several new upgrades to these frames have made them even better. New metal frame spacers makes it so you have a solid connection between your bearing and frame. This reduces friction, while giving enough space to let your wheel roll freely without letting your bearing rub against the inner sidewall of the frame. New plastic formula in these frames makes them slide faster then ever, and feel even more solid than the last generation.
These frames have a recessed frame wall, and what that does is when your grinding it reduces your surface friction, making you slide faster when grinding. Beveled edges on the bottom for better cess slides. Coming setup with 42mm anti-rockers right out of the box.
The Wheels & Bearings: Razors 3D Wheels 57mm 90a & Abec 9 Bearings
These Razors 3D wheels are way better then most wheels that come stock on a pair of skates. Their definitely a few steps above your basic generic wheels and roll great right out the box. These feature a special Yuri pro graphic on the wheels as well. 57mm 90a is the perfect size and hardness for both park and street.
The Soulplates & Backslides: Slider Backslide Plates & Slider Grindplates & Slider Soulframes These are the soulplates for Razors SL style skates. The SL shell features a baseless design, and the Slider Soulframes act as the bottom of the shell along with the Slider Backslide Plates& Slider Grindplates. What this does is give you a closer to the foot feel when your grinding. Pretty much the distance between your foot and what your grinding has been greatly reduced, this results in a more natural grind and increased responsiveness. All of these parts are replaceable and are available in a variety of different colors.
The new Razors Yuri 2 Pro SL skates are probably my favorite Razors skates to come out in a long time. Their a great looking skate that also manage to be light and durable. The perfect setup for any type of skating you throw at them. Get yourself a pair because these might not be around for long.
