USD just dropped their newest Carbon free skate. The new Carbon Free Team 2018 boot is packed with a ton of features while still maintaining a low weight overall. Similar styling to retro Air Jordan sneakers these skate stand out above the rest. Sleek but simple colors make this skate perfect for customization. Great skate for anyone looking to try out the carbon craze but enjoy the feel of softer plastic on their foot.
The Carbon-Free has the same construction like the USD carbon with with a composite shell. The padding, shell and upper are made to one piece what makes the skate look compact. The external cuff gives lateral support and enhanced forward flex. It has been designed with a combination of Carbon, Fibreglass and Nylon which allows to create the closest feel to USD Carbon skates while enabling to lower the price for loyal USD customers. A size 41 skate weights only 150g more than the Carbon.
The Soulplates: USD Carbon Soul Plates
These are the souls that come on all USD Carbon Free or Carbon Skates. These soulplates offer a slim-lined profile with anatomical backslide. These are poured from a very hard plastic, provided much needed durability. If your wanting something a little more beefy check out the USD VII Soul Plates, those work as well on this skate. Those and the USD Carbon Soul Plates souls are available in a wide variety of different colors. Keep in mind we can swap out the color of ANY part on this skate for no additional charge, just gotta call us up and place your order over the phone.
The Cuffs: USD Carbon Cuffs
These are the cuffs that come stock on these blades. The inner Carbon Fiber shell doesn’t go all the way to the top of the skate, it stops before the ball of your ankle. So having this cuff on is a must for that much needed support. Beefy v-cut in the back to match the shape of the boot to provide optimum flex while keeping substantial support. Slits in the cuff help with this as well. We have these cuffs in a wide variety of different color, and we can swap them out for no additional charge, to do this you gotta call us up and place your order over the phone.
The built in/non-removable liner, this will increase the responsiveness of your skate, since the actual shell and the liner are one. Keep in mind these liners are not replaceable, so to get the most out of the skates you need to make sure your unlacing your skates all the way before you taken them on/off. Be gentile when your putting them on or taking them off, the more you try to jam your foot in or rip it out, the more damage the liner will take. These liners are just as durable as any other aggressive liner. As with all USD Carbon style skates, this skate comes with a 45 degree ankle strap. This helps ensure your foot stays snug inside the liner, and is easily replaceable for customization.
