 K2 Unnatural Skates

Athlete-approved and the flagship of the K2 Aggressive series is the Unnatural aggressive inline skate, geared for hard-charging skaters looking to push the boundaries of the sport. Built around a rich, black leather-textured upper, the Unnatural features 60mm wheels, a reinforced SoftBoot® construction to the upper, and the combination of a ratchet buckle cuff closure and replaceable mid-foot powerstrap. It also has the added comfort benefits of a shock absorbing foot bed.
 The Soulplate:

 We went back to the drawing board and came up with a completely redesigned 1- piece soul for extra durability, with Teflon® inserts that reduce friction and allow you to slide almost any surface. Amazing groove right out the box allowing you to do some great grinds without any break in time.

 The Frames:

It also utilizes the new UFS compliant frame that can be ridden flat or rockered without having to buy different size wheels. This frame slides great and is super solid, handling any terrain you throw at it. The lowered middle h-block makes it so your grinding space is easier to lock on to rails and ledges without catching/sticking on your wheels.

The Wheels and Bearings: 

60mm 88A Wheels/ ABEC-5 Bearings (Max Wheel 61mm). Not too many skates come with 60mm wheels stock. These skates do, and on top of that they come in a 8-wheel flat setup for supreme speed and agility.
The Liner: 

 K2 has always been known for their patented Soft boot technology to make their skates fit and feel one of a kind. These new Front Street skates are no different and feel great right out the box. Carbon skates and having the lightest skates are the biggest craze now a days; yet, people don’t realize these K2 skates are actually extremely light. Having a built in liner with virtually no shell cuts a ton of the bulk out, but the soft boot style of the skates makes it so they keep a good amount of support.

The cuff and strap enclosure system lets you have a nice amount of natural flex while still giving the rigidity need to stomp some big gaps. The 45 degree ankle strap is big, beefy and holds your foot perfectly in place. K2 also added an additional strap at the top of the liner to enhance the ability to customize your flex throughout the cuff. The tongue of the skate is anatomical and fits great from the get go, no bulky padding to break in.
