 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. FEATURES:

Shell/Upper: Molded, removable components (cuff, soul plates, frame, liner, shock absorber)
Liner: Powerslide MyFit Fat Boy Medium Teal Liner 
Closure: Cuff powerstrap, 45 velcro band, laces
Frame: Kizer Slimline 2 Black Frames
Wheels: UC Deer 76mm 88a Teal Wheels
Anti-Rockers: Moonshine 43mm UHMW wheels

Bearings: ProVoke Blueballs Bearings

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
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.

 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: UC Deer 76mm 88a Teal Wheels

The 76mm Deer lineup of UC/Matter wheels are a step down in size from the Tigers and also come in both bullet and full radius profiles. 76mm wheels provide a very smooth ride much like the 80mm but the slightly smaller wheel lets you turn better and can be a bit more forgiving if your going to be doing some free skate tricks with these. The Wildlife wheels also come in a array of different hardnesses, so you can dial in the perfect urban setup.

Bearings: ProVoke Blueballs Bearings

 ProVoke’s Blue Ball bearings are meant for speed. Made with the usual set of high quality balls with an ILQ-11 equivalent rating. Each bearing is prefabricated and has removable shields for maintenance and cleaning. 8 pieces per sack. No spacers included. Each sack is individually numbered out of a limited run of 300 sets!

Blueball energy. Made for speed. Removable Shields. Cleanable Balls.

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 Teal 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.
