USD Carbon XV GC Skates USD just recently came out with their newest Carbon III style boot only skate, The Carbon XV boots. These are Carbon boots with a sleek black and white color skin/setup. These skates are perfect for customization with plenty of replaceable parts. So we decided to keep these basic and sleek but still add some extra style to them. Made with the highest quality materials to up stand to the abuse of everyday street skating. These skates are great for all skill levels, from beginner to advanced. Like most carbon models these have a ton of features packed into them but still retain their extremely light weight, making them one of the more agile skates on the market.
These skates feature a super lightweight carbon shell with a built in liner. Using a Carbon shell with built in liner now only helps cut down in added weight and bulk, but it also helps improve skate feel underfoot and gives you more control. Replaceable 45 Degree ankle straps also help lock your foot into the skate and improve mobility and foot control. These skates are perfect for those tech skaters out there, but can also hold up to whatever big hammer tricks you want to try.

These Erik Bailey Wheels are some of my favorite wheels that provide a ride most other wheels can not. 57mm and 90a hardness is the perfect size wheel for any terrain.
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.
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 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.
