The blading resurgence is in full swing and with all of the rejuvenated energy flying around there also comes with it some incredible new products from some of blading’s longest running and most dedicated brands as well as new brands that are creating ground breaking products to fit all of your blading desires.
So we have decided to highlight some of our industry’s hot new items in our newest feature “Nuts and Bolts”. We will be summarizing the latest products within the blading world and give you a quick and easily digestible source to view the freshest products from all corners of the blading world from the last few weeks.
The Roces Skate company have just dropped some fresh new blades for the winter season with the first being their newest “Domestic Punk” Bobi Spassov pro model M12 skate with one of the most eye catching colorways ever released on a pair of inline skates. Bobi’s new model dares to be bold and vibrant in a time when skate manufacturers tend to play it safe and conservative when it comes to choosing particular hues for their new model skates. It is also great to see the powers at be at Roces have heard the community’s feedback, particularly from their female fans, regarding more colorful and attractive models to match their personal tastes. So kudos to Roces and Bobi for filling a much needed void and making it look so good in the process.
Roces also announced another blade offering with their brand new Fifth Element model for the Japanese steeze machine, Yuto Goto! The new Yuto boots come in a classic smokey grey and black colorway with stock frames and 60mm 93a wheels. An added plus is Roces is taking Mother Earth into consideration by creating all of their colored skates with 47% cornstarch-based plastic as well as using recycled 99% plastic-free skate packaging. The new Yuto boots are looking to ship the end of March so get your pre-orders in now!
The Trigger Skate company made waves with their adding of their first American pro rider, Jeff Dalnas, and Jeff has just released a super sneak peek of his very first signature model from Trigger and the boots are looking rather sweet, as least in the limited view that we can see from them. Jeff states via his IG post that the new boots will be “new and improved for comfort and maneuverability” with developmental insight from Jeff Dalnas himself. So keep your eyes peeled for more news of the Dalnas Trigger boots which should be coming sooner rather than later, hopefully.
2021 looks to be quite eventful for ole Jeff as he not only will be receiving another signature skate, but he also got the good news of him being a Dad soon! So congratulations to Big Daddy Dalnas and good job in passing those super human genetics onto another generation.
The Razors Skate brand have just dropped their newest Loca model in a fresh white and lilac colorway. The Loca was designed by and for the female skaters out there and the new boot has a unique V-Cut cuff that fits their specific anatomical needs and Razors also introduced an additional smaller skate shell sizing (4/5), which was previously unavailable. The new Locas also feature a fresh new matching Reign X Loca Liner, hockey laces, crispy white Ground Control FLT3 frames and stock Razors wheels. The new Locas are in stores as we speak so pick up a pair!
The USD Skate company have just released their newest signature Aeon skate for the high-flying Frenchman, Roman Abrate! After skating the USD VII for five years, Roman wanted to try something new to help him go faster and air higher in the big parks and transitions, so that led to him choosing ultra fast 68mm UC Apex wheels in a Aeon 72mm shell, which using a slightly smaller wheel gives plenty of space to still confidently do your favorite h-block tricks whilst slightly reducing ride height without losing any excess speed. The new Roman’s also feature a unique colorway, an added soft top, a new and improved adjustable cuff, and MyFit 2nd skin liners. The new Roman’s are available in your favorite skateshops now so be sure to pick up a pair before these bad boys sell out! And be sure to peep the awesome new skate promo that Roman made to show off his new beauties!
There has been quite a revival among some blading’s brands from years past and one of those in particular is the Birth Brand, courtesy of inline skating icon, Chris Edwards. For the relaunch of Birth, the Airman has enlisted the assistance of fellow blading legends Jaren Grob, Rachard Johnson and Derek Henderson. And that is not all! The entire Birth team have also brought their offspring along for the ride with their very own signature clothing to match their parents.
The Birth relaunch features a humongous line of gear which includes shirts, caps, hoodies, jackets, mugs as well as youth tees and onesies and even a relaunch of some of their most recognizable shirts from the mid nineties. On top of their soft goods, Chris has also teamed up with the Kaltik brand to create a limited edition 25th anniversary Birth Daytona junior K Skate that comes in a smooth blue colorway reminiscent of Chris’ RB Daytona skate from 1996 as well as a black and white K Skate Thunder edition. The skates features a perfect pairing of Kaltik flat frames and Kaltik 60mm 90a wheels. All royalties from the Birth series skates go to the Chris Edwards Skate Foundation.
