Valo EB 1.5 LE Skate

Written by RW

 Valo EB 1.5 LE Skates at The Valo skate brand just released a new version of a classic pro skate, the EB 1.5 LE. Paying respect to the original Valo Pro Erik Bailey and his first pro skate. This a Limited skate with only 300 available worldwide. This skate will come with a certificate signed and numbered of 300. Designed and made in Italy with the finest quality materials and craftsmanship. A cool twist to one of the original Valo skates, this has to be one of the coolest looking Valo skates to come out yet.

Valo skates are known for their super rugged construction and great solid feeling. These new EB 1.5 LE are no exception, a great looking setup thats ready to shred right out the box. This skate has a classic plastic Valo V13 shell underneath the skin. Some skaters have been keeping these stock with no customizations; however, keep in mind we can swap out parts on your skates at no extra charge.


The Frame: Valo Team Frame

Some skaters prefer to switch out their stock frames as soon as they get a new pair of skates or get a boot only. These Valo team frames are some of the best stock skate frames on the market and are definitely worth a try. Their one of the more solid frames out right now with extremely thick sidewalls, a perfect groove and reinforced design. These fames slide great and come with beveled sidewalls to reduce friction and keep those bolts covered nicely while grinding. This frame is great for both anti-rocker and flat-rocker setups.


The Wheels and Bearings: Valo 58mm 88a Team Wheels and Abec 5 Bearings

These skates come setup with Valo 58mm 88a Team wheels. A lot of skates come with some pretty poorly made generic wheels; however, these Valo Team wheels are actually pretty good for a stock wheel. The 58mm size is perfect for street and park skating and 88a hardness will have you rolling smooth.

The Anti-Rockers: Valo 42mm 101a Anti-Rockers

These super hard plastic anti-rockers are built to withstand the abuse of the everyday streets, and provide solid locking capabilities while doing groove tricks. These anti-rockers are equipped with ABEC 1 bearings which will provide you with rolling capabilities, which a lot of other anti-rockers usually don’t have.

The Soul Plates: Valo Two Piece Soul Plates These are Valo’s New 2 Piece Soul Plates first introduced a few years ago. They went with a 2 piece system this time, which enabled them to increased the thickness of the soulplate, increasing durability. 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.

The Liner: Valo EB.1 LinerValo has made subtle yet amazing changes to their liners over the years, and these EB 1.5 LE liners do not disappoint. A nicely constructed liner with reinforced stitching on the sole and heel. Neoprene toe area helps relieve pressure around the toe box and makes these skates even more comfy. The padding on the inside of the liner is a perfect anatomical fit right out the box and will form to your foot nicely.
