Roces just released it’s first 5th Element pro skate for the renowned skater Yuto Guto. This guy has been climbing the ranks for the last few years making his way to be one of the top pro skaters these days. Known for his super technical tricks while still being able to go big and drop some hammers. You know this skate is built to handle it all. Especially to hold up to his skating and get his stamp of approval. The 5th Element skate was one of the most popular skates back in the day. Known for its solid feels and quality materials. This new version is even better with an updated soul-plate and new materials. Get yourself a pair while you can!
Shell: Bimaterial, Hard PU for excellent support and durability and soft PU for wraparound fastening
Dual hardness shell creates a very unique fit. Outer maroon colored shell is a hard plastic giving more support and response. While the lacing area is a thinner softer plastic to allow the lacing to tighten where needed. Resulting in a great feeling skate.
Closure: Aluminum Memory buckle, Traditional Lacing
Roces is known for having one of the industries best buckle closure systems. Able to keep your customized flex without adjusting everytime you strap your skates on. Traditional lacing helps give a nice precise and customizable fit.
Roces Team Frame
The Roces frame is a amazing stock frame. One of the most underestimated frames on the market today. It’s great for both flat and anti rocker skating. Super solid sidewalls and rugged construction makes these last long and slide fast. Made from glass fiber reinforced polyamide. Perfect frame for these skates.
60mm 93A HQ compound wheels + 2 grind wheels
Bearings: ABEC 5
Most stock wheels that come on skates don’t last that long or provide the best ride. These Roces wheels are actually quite nice. The high quality compound in a 93a hardness helps make them last longer while still maintaining a smooth ride. 60mm size is perfect for skating street or park. Come setup with Abec 5 bearings which will having you rolling fast right out the box.
Roces Two-Piece Soul Plate
Roces went with a 2 piece system this time, which enabled them to increased the thickness of the soulplate, increasing durability. Same as the old Valo 2-piece soul plates, these things will handle any grinds you throw at them. Since 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.
Roces 5th Element Liner
Comfort fit liner with a wider shape to fit the 5th element shell perfectly. Similar fit to old Valo light skates. Memory foam is anatomical for a precise fit. ECOleather top lining gives less chafing and overall more comfort. Padding in the heel area gives a very nice heel lock which prevents your foot from moving around. Keeping the skate very responsive.
