Razors SL Edwin Memorial Skates

Written by RW

Razors SL Edwin Memorial SkatesThe Razors SL boot has been a staple in the Razors Skate lineup for over a decade. During that time some of the worlds best skaters rode the Razors SL skate. Among that elite list of skaters was Edwin Wieringh. Edwin was hands down one of the illest skaters to ever grace the sport. Sadly he left us all too soon and with his passing comes an amazing legacy of some of the best skating to ever go down. This skate pays repects to Edwin and the work he put down on the skates. The Razors SL skate was Edwin’s choice skate, so you know your getting a high performing skate.
On top of being lightweight and responsive, they also have a nice width to the shell. This allows many different foot types to fit into the SL style boot. Coming with all replaceable parts these can easily be fully customized down to the slider/backslide plates. These skates are some of the most well-rounded skates on the market. A solid skate that can handle any terrain you throw at it.

The Frames: Ground Control Featherlite 3 Frames

The Ground Control Featherlite 3 frames are some of the best frames out right now, and one of our personal favorites. Several new upgrades to these frames have made them even better then before. 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. The white FL3 frames with black sickle axles go perfect with any custom setup. Comes in 3 sizes for optimized fit.

Coming setup with 42mm anti-rockers right out of the box.

Note: The frames that come on the SL Black do not have the white FL3 stamp.

The Wheels & Bearings: Ground Control 64mm Wheels w/ Abec 9 Bearings

One of the first aggressive skates in a long time to come out with wheels larger than 60mm. These 62mm Ground Control wheels will have you rolling smoother and faster than usual. They come with Abec 9 rated bearings, that will be strong enough to hold up to those big drops and still roll fast.

 The Soulplates & Backslides: Slider Backslide Plates & Slider Grindplates & Slider Soulframes

These are the soulplates for Razors SL style skates. The SL shell features a baseless design, and the Slider Soulframes act as the bottom of the shell along with the Slider Backslide PlatesSlider Grindplates. What this does is give you a closer to the foot feel when your grinding. Pretty much the distance between your foot and what your grinding has been greatly reduced, this results in a more natural grind and increased responsiveness. All of these parts are replaceable and are available in a variety of different colors. 

The Liners: Razors SL Liners

 New updated liner for this SL skate. Similar to the Razors Cult liner. Streamlined fit without the extra bulk. Fits the SL shell nicely.
