CUSTOM: SSM Bloodline 3 Skate

Written by RW

  SSM Bloodline 3 SkatesThe SSM Bloodline 3 skates are one of our favorite SSM skates to date, and with the recent price drop on SSM skates we decided to make a cool custom skate setup. Customizing this already awesome skate with red parts made the Bloodline skates really stand out. What better color to brighten these up with than red, the color of the bloodline itself. These skates skate great as it is right out the box so we tried to keep the custom setup close to stock but show how easily you can make a cool looking custom setup with this skate. The Bloodline skates are perfect for any skill level of blader and one of the best blades to customize and make your own.   Features:
SSM Soul System
SSM BL Liners
Red Buckle
Ground Control FLT3  Red Frames
Ground Control 57mm 90a Wheels
GC 42mm Nylon Anti Rockers
Bones Red Bearings

The Frames: Ground Control Featherlite 3 Frames

 Ground Control‘s new Featherlite 3 Red frames come on this skate setup. They go great with the Razors SL boot and match perfectly with other red skate parts.

Ground Control just made one of the best frames on the market even better.
The new frames now have metal frame spacers, reduce the friction from your bearing rubbing on your frame, giving your bearings and wheels the best possible free spin.A big upgrade from the last Featherlite 2 Frames.

Also a brand new plastic formula which improves durability and lets you slide your grinds better, faster, and longer.

Since the axels have the self locking sickle head on one end, you only need one allen wrench to swap out your wheels or anti-rocker wheels. These frames have a recessed side wall, that reduces your surface friction, making you slide faster. Beveled bottom edges for better cess slides. Coming setup right out the box with matching 42mm anti-rockers for middle wheels, to help your grinds slide with ease…

The Wheels: Ground Control 57mm 90a Wheels 

Ground Control developed a line of wheels that perfectly complements their frames. Made in the USA from super high rebound PU our wheels are extremely fast, grippy and long lasting. Recently tested these wheels out and can say their a quality wheel at a great price. Go great with any frame setup.

Flat Profile with 90a hardness is perfect for both park and street skating.


Soulplates: SSM Replacement Black Soulframes

These are the SSM Replacement Soulframes, the solid one piece construction eliminates any clanking or clacking when landing. They also have a pre-grooved backslide area so your able to lock your tricks right out of the box. These souls are attached to the skate via a 6 point mounting system offering an unmatched solid feeling to your blades. Same story with this part, we can swap them out to any other color at no additional charge, to do this you gotta call us up and place your Custom Skate order over the phone, 1-800-772-2502, Mon – Fri, 8am – 6pm pst.

 The Liner: SSM Bloodline Liner

The new SSM line of skates also come with a new and improved liner. Padding around the cuff and ankle nicely complements the skates flex. Anatomical tongue fits your foot and ankle without being too bulky. Carrying strap on the back of the liner to make carrying your skates around real easy. Like most liners if you simply skate these liners for a couple sessions they will slowly form to the shape of your foot.

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.
