Zoals altijd staat USD weer voorop bij de ontwikkeling van skates, ook met de USD Aeon hebben ze alles uit de kast getrokken om een top skate te maken die ook nog betaalbaar is.
De USD Aeon is gebaseerd op het minimalistische waardoor er minder losse onderdelen op de skate zitten, zoals extra hardware (schroeven) e.d.
Doordat de skate voornamelijk uit één deel bestaat is de skate lichter gemaakt maar niet alleen lichter.. Ook is de skate laag in prijspunt, gemaakt van top kwaliteit materialen, staat de skate lager bij de grond zodat er meer controle uitgehaald kan worden en daarnaast word de skate gemaakt met 60mm of 72mm wielen voor optimale snelheid voor stuntskaters.
"When USD decides to design a new skate, you can be sure it will be a game changer."
Once the decision to create a new skate had been made, we had to be sure that it would stand out from the crowd. We decided to break the rules that have been abided by for the past 14 years, and think outside the box - why does a skate need so much hardware? Is UFS really the best solution?
For USD, the Aeon would be about performance, the key word in the creative project. We designed an affordable, high performance skate that combines the boot and soulplate (unibody), minimizing hardware and moving you closer to the ground, enabling perfect control while at the same time maximizing the possibilities of larger wheel use with all the benefits of this new, low center of gravity.
You heard right. This skate is not UFS Compatible. Are we crazy? Consider this:
UFS was invented as a standard mounting system many years ago and is optimized for a maximum wheel size of 60mm. But since its creation, larger wheels such as 72mm have become popular again, a wheel size that reminds us of the popularity of OG blading roots, allowing better roll while enabling great control and space to grind.
We are proud to announce that with our new unibody design our boot is actually lower with 72mm wheels than many other skates that use 58mm wheels.
Remember when USD made the first ever carbon skate for aggressive
skaters? We took a risk, and revolutionized the skate industry, and now we’re
doing it again. The USD Aeon has been designed from scratch to be affordable
while being perfect right out of the box. If you’re worried about not being
able to change the frames, complete unibody shells including soulplate and
frames will of course be available straight away.
Of course, the performance of our new skate is not all that we are proud of and we have spared no expense at finding the most comfortable liner we can produce. The Aeon includes a heat-moldable MyFit Skinny Boy custom liner - you could almost call it a second skin, close fitting and stretch-adaptable with very little volume and no pressure points.
The USD Aeon skate is therefore a one
piece, lightweight and comfortable skate with the lowest profile ever made,
allowing for a whole new level of advance performance for street skaters
