Elite skates for elite players.
The Riedell Solaris platinum are weaponised skate tech you can strap to your feet.
Designed and formulated to meet the array of needs of the highest level of derby play for how the game is played today, this skate represents the sought after unparalleled fit and performance that will bring your game to new heights.
The boot is composed with a multitude of materials all custom created and fit to purpose. The outer is a new less stiff and more heat moldable material that will hug your foot comfortably like no other, while keeping the weight down in comparison to carbon fiber construction, while holding immense strength and resilience.
The last of the boot is Riedell’s newly pioneered C/AA Contour Fit Last, which is a really well designed outlay. The Heel Cup is super snug, reducing heel lift and helps you get the max action out've your skates, while the toe box is very relaxed, allowing those with wider feet to be super comfortable and unpinched which is a godsend, and the open lacing that continues to the very toe of the skate allows narrower feet to be extremely well secured. The V-Lock employed is another innovation that further locks the skate into the curvature of your heel from the back.
Lets talk about the guts of the skate. The Arius plate makes use of a dual butterfly cushion design that overtakes the lacking single cushion that is standard. It does this by allowing a new kind of pivot in the trucks called progressive lateral movement which does away with the need to constantly adjust for proper performance, and allowing super precise and powerful movements.
This is also accomplished through a very effective winged design of the truck's body which is engineered to not require any adjustment hardware, lightening the weight to absolute minimal levels, which is brought even further down by using chromoly 8mm axles which are extremely lightweight, resistant bits of kit.
These come more then fully loaded with Radar Halo wheels with 59mm of diameter to power you around, and grip the hell out've the court with fast and firm 86a urethane and Kwik Zenith bearings that roll faster then abec 9's that come pre oiled and with Delrin® retainers.
In a fitting blacked out colour way this really is a supreme skate made for maximum derby power, pick a pair up and feel the difference.
