Custom Skates

CUSTOM: Razors SL-3 Grey 72mm Skates

Written by RW

 Razors SL 3 Grey SkatesThe Razors SL shell has been one of the most popular skates over the recent years. A baseless super light construction, yet solid feel makes these skates a favorite among skaters worldwide. Ground Control recently dropped their new 72mm wheel, coming with a new profile thats better suited for aggressive skating. Not too many skates come with a built in wheel well carved out of the soul plate allowing bigger wheels to be ridden. Pair the Razors SL boot and a Kizer Slimline frame and you can put some really big wheels on your average street skating setup. Allowing for an extremely fast and fun ride.

The Frames:  Kizer Slimline 2 Red Frames 

8mm Rocker-able Axels
Aluminum Frame Spacers
Recessed Frame Walls
Concave h-block shape to reduce wheel bite
Allows for multiple different wheel setups
Ideal Flat-Rocker Frame

The Kizer Slimline is one of the younger additions to the Kizer family. The 2011 re-vamped version of this frame has been designed as the ultimate flat setup frame thanks to the help of the industries leaders in frame technology including the one and only Al Dolega.
A flat setup is beneficial for a number of reasons: It allows you better speed and control as well as improved anti-shock. Flat setups allow for faster turns and also allow for longer wheel life

Wheels: Ground Control 72mm 88a Full Profile

Our new 72mm wheel from GC features an updated full-profile and solid core.  This new design will provide more stability and increase overall wheel life.  Our original wheel was designed to fit with the GC BIGs Frame, this improved wheel profile will require modification of the BIGs Frame if they are intended to be used in the 2nd and 3rd wheel positions (no mod is needed for the outer 1st and 4th wheel positions).

Compatible without modification: Kizer Level 3’s, USD Aeon 72mm, Kizer Slimline 2’s (outside spots).

Mod for GC Bigs REQUIRED! How To:

Bearings: Go Project Freestyle Bearings

Go Project Freestyle bearings are manufactured with great strength making them perfect for side-load and leverage heavy skating disciplines (sharp turning, freestyle, slalom, big wheels etc), They run with extremely low torque and are permeated with an ultra light oil. They use SIX Chrome Steel ball bearings instead of SEVEN for reduced friction. Each ball is marginally bigger than regular bearings making these perfect for a heavy vertical load-bearing sport like inline skating.
While Go Project Freestyle bearings are comparable to an ABEC 7 rated bearing, Go Project does not use the generic ABEC scale to rate bearings because of its irrelevance to the specific tolerances imposed by inline skating. The quality of manufacturing and materials far surpass the importance of a rating based upon ‘revolutions per second’. The Freestyle bearings simply have a Speciality Rating of 4.5/5 which represents their performance when used as a skate bearing.

The Anti’s: Moonshine 43mm Anti-Rockers

Moonshine 43mm Anti-Rockers are handmade UHMW wheels. UHMW is a super hard and extremely fast material. These anti-rockers are high quality and will slide across anything, and last quite a long time. Perfect for street and park skating, they come in two sizes 43mm and 46mm.

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 Liners: Jug Black Sox 3 Liners

The Black Sox 3 liner comes with a dual density foam consisting of a high density EVA foam on the outside, for support and stress distribution, and a softer inner PU foam to adapt to the contours of your foot. A 3/4″ thick padding of the articulated tongue significantly enhances fit and comfort.

• Dual density foam
• Elastic V-cut insert
• Articulated ankle shape
• J-pad ankle lock
• 4-point lacing system
• Articulated, pre-shaped tongue
