Custom Skates

CUSTOM: USD Carbon Team 2016 Skates

Written by RW

 USD Carbon Team 2016 BootsUSD recently dropped their newest Carbon Team 2016 Skate. These skates come looking fresh straight out of the box. However the unique colors of this skate made us think of some cool custom setups to go along with the original color scheme of the skate. So we built up this rad custom while keeping it pretty simple and close to stock.
 This USD Carbon skate features all the quality parts that riders have come to expect from USD, and will definitely allow for some fantastic custom setups. 

The Soulplates: USD Carbon Soul Plates

These are the souls that come on all USD Carbon Free or Carbon Skates. These soulplates offer a slim-lined profile with anatomical backslide. These are poured from a very hard plastic, provided much needed durability. If your wanting something a little more beefy check out the USD VII Soul Plates, those work as well on this skate. Those and the USD Carbon Soul Plates souls are available in a wide variety of different colors. Keep in mind we can swap out the color of ANY part on this skate for no additional charge, just gotta call us up and place your order over the phone.

The Wheels: Rollerblade Hydrogen Wheels 58mm 88a 

 The RB Hydrogen Wheels are new to the scene but are definitely packing some high quality urethane. Similar core and shape to some undercover wheels these have an awesome profile. The hydrogen formula make the wheels have a far superior grip compared to a lot of the wheels on the market. They also wear down a bit slower than normal wheels. Awesome wheels for the park or streets and the hydrogen formula makes for a great ride.

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 Cuffs: USD Carbon II Cuffs

These are the cuffs that come stock on these blades. The inner Carbon Fiber shell doesn’t go all the way to the top of the skate, it stops before the ball of your ankle. So having this cuff on is a must for that much needed support. Beefy v-cut in the back to match the shape of the boot to provide optimum flex while keeping substantial support. Slits in the cuff help with this as well. We have these cuffs in a wide variety of different color, and we can swap them out for no additional charge, to do this you gotta call us up and place your order over the phone.

The Liners:

The built in/non-removable liner, this will increase the responsiveness of your skate, since the actual shell and the liner are one. Keep in mind these liners are not replaceable, so to get the most out of the skates you need to make sure your unlacing your skates all the way before you taken them on/off. Be gentile when your putting them on or taking them off, the more you try to jam your foot in or rip it out, the more damage the liner will take. These liners are just as durable as any other aggressive liner. As with all USD Carbon style skates, this skate comes with a 45 degree ankle strap. This helps ensure your foot stays snug inside the liner, and is easily replaceable for customization.
