CUSTOM: Valo Victor Arias Olive Light Skates

Written by RW

 Valo Victor Arias Olive Light SkatesThe new Valo Victor Arias Light Pro Skate comes in a really cool olive green color way. This Olive skin matched with a tan soul plate is the perfect basis for making a custom skate. These stock colors go with almost every colored part we have. The stock setup is so good we decided to keep it basic and add some quality frames and wheels to spice up the setup. VA 2 Light Olive

The Frames: Ground Control Featherlite 3 Frames

The Ground Control Featherlite 3 frames are some of the best frames out right now. Several new upgrades to these frames have made them even better. New metal frame spacers makes it so you have a solid connection between your bearing and frame. This reduces friction, while giving enough space to let your wheel roll freely without letting your bearing rub against the inner sidewall of the frame. New plastic formula in these frames makes them slide faster then ever, and feel even more solid than the last generation.

These frames have a recessed frame wall, and what that does is when your grinding it reduces your surface friction, making you slide faster when grinding. Beveled edges on the bottom for better cess slides. Coming setup with 42mm anti-rockers right out of the box.

The Wheels: Eulogy Haffey 58mm 88a Wheels

For this Custom Setup we added the Eulogy Chris Haffey 58/89 Wheels. These have a couple different greens in the graphic that go great with the skin. Eulogy is world renowned for having some of the highest performance wheels on the market. Their  compound used in their line of wheels, offers a better free spin, and more grip on corners. 58mm size is ideal for this antirocker setup, one of the bigger wheels you can fit in these frames. Bigger wheels mean they’ll last you longer and that’s always a good thing. Sleek graphics by Kyler Martz, support Haffey and Eulogy with these awesome wheels.

 The Soulplates: Valo 2 Piece  Soul Plates These are Valo’s New 2 Piece Soul Plates first introduced a few years ago. They went with a 2 piece system this time, which enabled them to increased the thickness of the soulplate, increasing durability. They are now a two piece system, so you can swap them out to give your skate a cool custom look. These are made out of Polyamide Nylon with infused Glass Fiber to increase grinding speed and strength. Hands down some of the longest lasting souls on the market. Most of the time the soulplates last just about as long as the skates. Beefy design to hold up to tough street skating. The new Gum/brown/grey color way is one of the coolest colored souls to ever come out, and would look good on almost any setup.

The Liner: Valo Victor Arias Olive Liner

These liners have improved stitching compared to the old models, heel cup is wider and now made of a more durable fabric material. Neoprene toe will reduce pressure on your toes and form to your foot. These are pretty much the ideal liner for Valos, not super thick, not super thin, the perfect amount of padding for these skates. The front panel on the tongue of the liner is a perfect color match to the skin of the skate.
