For the last few months now I’ve been pleasuring myself – or should I say Kaltik’s new flat frame has been pleasuring me? Either way it doesn’t quite sound right! The truth is I’ve been skating this revolutionary frame and they’re surprisingly amazing! Amazing I tell you!

Ground Control introduces new Formula 1 XS Frames

Based on the popular Formula 1 frame, Ground Control’s new F1 XS frame features an extra wide split, deeper recessed axle bolts and a thicker H-block; 15 mm wider than the split found on the traditional F1 frame. The maximum wheel size is 60 mm (outside) and/or 56 mm if riding 4 wheels flat. It also comes with the smaller axle bolt heads of the FLT2 frames resulting in increased material around the axels for even more durability.
