 Razors SL Red Skates

The original SL Skate made the scene way back in 2008, introducing the 3rd model to the Razors hard-shell boot family.  Since then a number of SL Pro and Team releases have made their way onto feet all across the world, including those of some of the best to ever lace-up a pair of blades. The SL boot continues to be the favorite for a large majority of our team and supporters. Not a surprise coming from a skate designed by street skaters specifically for their own needs.

This combination of the SL boot and blood red color presents a strong contrast between the SLR’s simple construction and it’s strong appeal. The lightweight, hard-shell boot comes complete with a classic Razors cuff, reformed Razors liner, GC wheels and a GC FLT3 frame.
Time to ‘take the red pill…’. Introducing the SLR.

The Razors SL boot is the only skate to offer a baseless boot design. Which will give you a smaller space between your foot and soul plates, increasing contact with grinds while lowering the weight of the skate. This just makes skating even more fun in general and gives you a great solid feeling that’s still as light as possible. Each piece of the SL skate is fully replaceable, from the cuff to the buckle to each piece of the soul frame and Razors’ patented backslide plate. Making customizing and replacing parts on this skate super easy.

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 and Bearings: Black GC wheels, 57 mm/90, ABEC 5’s

The Liners: Razors SL Red Liners

Dual density foam
New Reformed tongue
Elastic V-cut insert
Articulated ankle shape with better improved ankle support
Velcro tongue lock
J-pad ankle lock
Duel density footbed
Neoprene toe and heel

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.

Roller Warehouse also carries the Razors SL-2 in multiple different matching color styles. We can also customize and change the color of any other parts of the skate at no extra charge!
