USD VII Clan 2015 Skate

Written by RW

 USD VII Clan 2015 Skate at USD just came out with their all new VII Clan skate for 2014-15. This skate is a great all around skate in a more simple plastic boot style. The VII style skate may look a bit plain compared to models like the Carbons, but their super solid construction and replaceable parts make these skates perfect for all skaters looking for a skate tough enough to withstand the abuse of skating.

The Liner: USD VII Clan Liner
The USD VII Clan skate comes with a real proper liner. Nice and thick in padding around the heel and ankle. Along with a strong supportive tongue. These liners are a perfect fit for these skates and break in very nicely. They also come with a neoprene toe to help alleviate pressure points.

The Frames: Kizer Type-M Frame

The Clan skate comes setup with some white Kizer Type-M Frames with contrasting black bolts to match the liner. These frames are freestyle frames with no middle wheels. Freestyle frames have a wider space in the middle of your wheels so it makes locking on grinds a lot easier. These Kizer frames have a beefy H-block/grinding space that will last a long time and come with a perfect groove.  Kizer frames are known for being very strong and great for all types of skating and these Kizer Type-M frames are no exception.

The Wheels and Bearings: USD Team wheels 57mm 89a and ABEC 5 bearings.

The VII Clan skates come setup with some USD team wheels. Natural color urethane with a solid looking core. 57mm size is the perfect size right out of the box, and the 89a hardness makes these a smooth ride. The Abec 5 bearings provide you with some fast rolling wheels while being strong enough for all types of skating.

The Soulplates: USD VII Souls

 USD VII soul plates are some of the best on the market. A lot of skaters even put these on their Carbons and non-usd skates. Their super thick while maintaining a low profile. Very tough rugged construction make these great for all grinds and especially nice for torques and backslide tricks.
