prior to debur and stuff, its been 10 years of waiting for the right brakes but they are here now. Making the skates completely viable for all terrain usage.

Looks like your image link is broken, but that first picture of the frame has me drooling. I was an inline speed skater from young childhood up until I was about 20. I still have my old Bont Shark boots and some lightweight frames. How likely are you to be able to make another set of frames like this for selling to me?

I love Bont frames you might like to see the comparison.

My inline skates have some flex in the ankle. Will the stiff boots offer enough flex for the application?

The Dalbellos in the picture I don't use those racing boots are overkill, I use a central entry boot for intermediate, easier to get in an out of very comfortable. Much more comfortable than skate lace ups. This the better boot.



and you get them off ebay all day real cheap like $30

they have allot of flex for sure.

They don't need brakes for kiteskating or for using with the Rollercycle. But I have a third use for them. Going down ski slopes in the summer. We have a 10 mile downhill fire road here / 3000 vertical feet often down through the clouds, terminating cutting through an orange vineyard for the last 1mile or so, have done that about 15 times, all downhill its the ultimate test for gravity based skating.

Kite skating remains the best application however for sure.

Chad some serious stuff in your vids!

right on man. u definitely got the gear to drop in with for down hill.

weight per skate? u could run those with 2 wheels prolly be fine, right? look like my old rocces/MOGEMA frames. changed over my doomwheels to 8" which gave, by far, better handling

i am not much of a skier, in frequency, so not much boot/binding knowledge for selection choices.

they would run on two wheels but for two wheels you can be down much lower than my skate height

weight is 11.5 pounds per skate , ski boot weights 5 pounds per boot.



final product after about 6 hours of deburring, and polish

Seems like a good bit of curve you put in those. I bet they turn pretty tight even though they are so long.

yes one centimeter of rocker, especially if the middle tires are inflated more than end tires as well. The front and rear wheels free spin on pavement
