Custom Skates

CUSTOM: Razors SL Red Skates

Written by RW

  Razors SL Red SkatesThe new Razors SL Red skate is one of the more unique colored skates to come out in sometime. So because of the flashy red shell we decided to build a cool custom setup out of this skate. The skate come already amazing looking stock so we kept a lot of the parts the same and just made a cool custom power blade setup. 

 The Frames: Ground Control Big Khaki Frames A collaborative effort with team riders and our design staff, the BIGs are built to offer GC’s trusted street attributes blended with smooth roll of a recreational frame setup.  By increasing the height of the frame, increasing the width of the h-block, and lowering the side walls and outer edges of the center groove, we are now able to offer a frame that allows a maximum wheel size of 72mm that skates like a street frame.  Complete with aluminum spacers, your wheels will roll smooth and fast with minimal resistance.

Wheels: Undercover Powerblading LA II 72mm 88a   Undercover wheels have become known for being some of the best wheels on the market. All of their wheels use a high quality urethane that ensures a smooth ride for maximum fun. These 72mm LA wheels are perfect for just about anything, small enough to still do some grinds while being big enough to give you good speed with less effort.

The Bearings: Bones Reds Bearings (8)

These skates are custom with red highlights on everything from the buckles to the wheels, so why not go with some Bones Red Bearings too! One of the companies that makes bearings specifically for skating is Bones Bearings. Some of the highest quality bearings at an affordable price.
• Single, removable, non-contact rubber shield allows for easy cleaning and less rolling resistance.
• High speed Nylon™ ball retainer provides added speed and strength.
• Skate Rated™ clearances, tolerances, materials and lubricant provide the best performance and durability possible.

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 PlatesSlider 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: Razors SL Red Liners

New Reformed tongue
Elastic V-cut insert
Articulated ankle shape with better improved ankle support
