USD finally coming through with a Sam Crofts pro skate. This UK skater has been on a tear the last few years. Dropping some of the best and craziest tricks the world has seen. Crofts is known for going big and always rides Aeons. So you know this skate has to be built tough to stand up to his skating. Sam picked this cool slate grey color way which looks even better in person. Get yourself a pair while they last!
Material shell: Glass-fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) – GFK
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 a 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 whilst still riding a full flat set up of 61mm
Unibody frame is built like a tank while being super lightweight. No hardware mounting the frame, means the wheels can get as close to your boot/foot as possible. Creating a truly unique feel compared to other frame setups. H-block (middle grind groove) is amoung some of the toughest biggest grooves on the market.
Wheels: USD AEON RP 61mm 90A
Bearings: WCD Wicked ABEC 7
Cuff: Glass-fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) – GFK
Aeon cuffs are known for being shorter and stagger. This gives the skate a proper feel and provides better response.
