The shell of the Metropolis Pro skate is made of composite material. We use fibreglass reinforced Polypropylene material to make the shell strong and stiff. The base of the mounting blocks is big and wide which provides a large contact area between the frame and boot.
The cuff was designed with support in mind. It is made out of a special composite compound that is super stiff thanks to the 15% fiberglass, which was mixed into the material.
This skate is equipped with the “Fat Boy” standard liner. This liner is a real masterpiece. The last was created by Sergio Mc Cargo, the No.1 shoemaker in the inline skating world. The liner is fully lasted. It has a perfect shape and fit, it wraps around your foot like a sock. The liner can NOT be heat moulded like his “MY FIT brother”. The general construction of both liners is the same and provides great comfort and support. The liner is light and also features a dual density innersole and a carrying strap.
The Metropolis skate features thick round laces which are easy to grab. There are two buckles – one placed at 45° to keep the heel in place, the other one on top of the cuff for a secure wrap.
This patent pending 3-D embossed one piece Urban frame is made of 6063 aircraft aluminium. The 3-D structure of the frame provides stiffness and reactivity. The short base makes the frame very agile which is perfect to cruise around the city. The Urban frame comes with a 165mm mounting standard. The combination of the across slot in the frame and the along slot in our boots is called the X-Slot Mounting. This system enables you to adjust the boot-frame setup without any dead spots according to your skating style and preferences.
