 Rollerblade Solo Team 2016 Skates 

The Solo Team skate has some great high quality parts coming stock on this skate and is truly ready to shred right out the box. However, a lot of skaters don’t realize that these skates are awesome for customizing. The fact you can see the highlights of your liners and easily swap out parts make these skates great for upgrades. We decided to keep them close to their original stealthy black look but add some color highlights to this custom setup.


Shell/Upper: Molded, removable components (cuff, soul plates, frame, liner, shock absorber)
Liner: Powerslide MyFit Fat Boy Medium Red Liner
Closure: Cuff powerstrap, 45 velcro band, laces
Frame: Kizer Slimline 2 Black Frames
Wheels: Undercover Powerblading LA II 72mm 88a  
Anti-Rockers: Moonshine 43mm BH UHMW wheels

Bearings: Bones Reds Bearings (8)

The Frames: Kizer Slimline 2 Black Frames

8mm Rocker-able Axels
Aluminum Frame Spacers
Recessed Frame Walls
Concave h-block shape to reduce wheel bite

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.

 The Soulplates: Rollerblade Solo Sole Plates 

The new formula Rollerblade Solo Sole Plates are now much more durable, using a brand new improved plastic. These souls have a beefy backslide area, and with the hard material the souls are made out of, these offer a very fast grind on all surfaces. Each positive and negative plate are attach via a 4 point mounting system giving a solid bound between the skate and what your grinding.

 The Wheels: Wheels: Undercover Powerblading LA II 72mm 88a  

 Superjuice Compound. Advanced aggressive technology for freeskate wheels.
Exclusively poured in California, USA. Created with the finest PU (Polyurethane) and core compounds available in the industry. UC PU is the most durable, fast and grippy PU available.

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.

Anti-Rockers: Moonshine 43mm BH UHMW wheels

Handmade 43mm UHMW Anti-Rockers By: Mr. Moonshine himself. “They’re super hard, extremely fast, slide across anything, and they lasted longer than my frames did”

 The Liners: Powerslide MyFit Fat Boy Medium Red Liner

The Myfit FatBoy liners are some of the best liners in the game right now. The perfect amount of padding in all the right places. These FatBoy liners are packed with tons of features these liners will not let you down. Such as neoprene toes, anatomical tongues, and heat moldable ready. These liners have a nice perfectly wide width to accommodate a wide range of foot sizes and fit preferences, something a lot of the slimmer narrow liners can’t do.
