Detailed Product Features
The shell of the R2 is made by composite material. We use fiberglass reinforced nylon (Zytel by Du Pont) material to make the shell strong like a carbon fiber shell. The cuff area of this entry level skate is a little bit softer for more comfort. This shell is based on a skeleton. The ribs on the bottom help to build a lightweight shell but also allows fresh air to flow into the boot for a better climate in the boot. Our PU nanoleather upper material is soft, yet very strong and resistant. This outstanding material wraps around the foot like a sock. We use neoprene and microfiber materials for the inside lining which provides max. comfort. Our 3D anatomical padding is placed strategically around the ankle area and also the tendon area of the shoe to assure the most secure ankle and heel fit. The new speedfoam used for the padding is another advanced material used in our racing shoes. This foam is soft, but not too soft to absorb energy and still very comfortable. Step in and you will feel well from very first minute you wear the boot. The speedfoam padding does not take away space inside the shoe where you would need it, but fills up the empty spaces to give more comfort and control.
This new padding makes the boot more comfortable and enhances in the overall performance.
The R2 racing shoe features regular waxed laces and an additional powerstrap placed over the toe box. The R2 skate comes with a regular flap including a micro adjustable spider buckle. The buckle position can be adjusted on the buckle protector to fit wider feet. High grade 6061 aluminium provides a comfortable ride. As with all our racing frames the x-frame is machined to perfection. Single axel system as standard. Powerslide Infinity wheels are Super High Rebound (SHR) wheels that give the kids all they need - fast roll, good grip, long lifetime. The traditional 5 spoke hub is a light weight construction. The size of the hub is matched with the size of wheel needed. Twincam bearings are superior in quality and performance. The ILQ7 features two metal shields. The bearing contains 7 chromesteel balls. High viscosity Kyodo grease made in Japan is used for this high tech and fast spinning bearing.
The integrated airflow system improves the clima in the shoe which results in a better performance.
The mounting of boot and frame cross like a "X" which enables the skater to customize his boot/frame set up according to his individual preferences without any dead spots.
The shell of the boot is constructed in the same way as a skeleton. This means extreme strength and stiffness with very low weight. The concept has been also transferred to carbon shells.
Latest standard of mounting distance between front and rear mounting point of boots and frames in order to keep the gravity point as low as possible.
Standard of mounting distance between front and rear mounting point of boots and frames. Often used for small size boots for technical reasons.
