A very unique frame has hit the inline skating market courtesy called AxyzS frames, courtesy of Chris Feichtmeier and being distributed by the good people over at Entente Goods. Chris and his homies have been developing these frames over the last three years. The AxyzS Flat steers around the main hurdles of the well-known UFS limitations, is made with a strong & long lasting material, slides very fast on all grinds and just works really, really well. Here are some tech specs of the AxyzS frames.
Low-to-the-ground UFS flat frame with a wide split (62mm total height at 60mm wheel diameter).
Precisely CNC-cut low-wear, long lasting and extremely fast rigid plastic. Solid & stable base for an optimized power transfer.
Y-groove: Pleasantly large grinder friendly shape with wheel bite protection. Slightly wedged out towards the center for a rocksolid grind feeling & ankle friendly angles. Split between the middle wheels: 137mm (size S) / 160mm (size L).
UFS cheater plates: Recessed base plate for perfectly counter-sunk UFS screws.
AxyzS-axles: Galvanized 8mm axles and bolts for straightforward and fast wheel changes, using only one allen key.
Perfectly fitting 8mm all frame spacers will let your wheels roll freely.
Colorless Technology: Highly concentrated marketing blabla about pigments without much function. In black & white.
Dimensions: S – 262mm (recommended up to EU43/UK9/US10) L – 290mm (recommended from EU43/UK9/US10)

You may remember the brand Print Brigade from Chris Piascik and Jamie Murrett and their popular “I Still Rollerblade” tees that were all the rage a few years ago, well it seems that the boys are jumping back into the blading community with a throwback to their previous lines. Founder Chris Piascik had this to say about the re-release of their classic garments.
Recently more and more people have been asking Jamie Murrett and I to bring back our old Print Brigade designs, especially our “I Still Rollerblade” shirt. After some deliberation we decided we’d do a few new things in addition to a new version of the “I Still Rollerblade” design. I updated the lettering to something I was happier with, but still stayed true to the original vibe. I kept the original pattern intact that I made by cutting up old Team Paradise catalogs, Daily Breads, Inline-Skater magazines, and more. (Side note: I always hated the Print Brigade name, it was appropriated from a name me and some friends had in art school that printed a bunch of posters, etc. It never made sense outside of that, but it seemed too late to change it at the time. So, to make me happy it’s now FKPB… (Formerly Known as Print Brigade).
