So Salomon's FSK heel attack plate was right all along! ;) don't know... they got it only on FSK S-Slab (top FSK) and I suspect it was one of those "minor" differencies btw S-Lab and regular Crossmax/Deemax. Anyway,Salomon's idea was to prevent boot from breaking during especially agressive freeska...

I was wondering what the plates were for, since the frame would fit fine without them. However, that does increase the deck height, which means more leverage. Ideally, you want to be as close to the ground as possible (lower centre of gravity, and all that jazz). As the source says (in Russian) the...

Well I'm 70kg and my twisters below uk10.5 size so I assume that will give me 165 spacing. I do actually like new Twisters and used them heavily for a year (freeskate,hockey,slalom). Anyway,in the pictures from my original post you can see alu plates are used to give support to frame mount points. N...

customizing Twisters with long frames

Thinking about some. And would like to hear about successful customs. Basically,I think that most 165mm frames should be good,I know some cases, like this one: (by Dimitri Melekhin,-Man-,from Rollerblade Russia team) http://www.style-slalom.ru/test-drive/twIII5.jpg http://www.style-slalom.ru/test-dr...

Before you all go berating the Sebas, maybe you should recall just how quickly the cuff screws on Twisters fell out. Something new for me. I abuse Twisters (2 pro) heavily year after I got them. That includes freeskating and roller hockey (with puck) well and bits of slalom. Beaten and bruised but ...

I'm on 41 (26 cm) Twister II and feel their 250mm frame sometimes longer than I'd like. For one wheel things,for example. The choice for slalom would be Seba's frame which is widely available, Viper frames which are considered to be very good but expensive. I've never seen RB golden frame 245 and wa...

Have some constant routes, run up to 30 km, slow pace (15+ km/h), frequent stops. Folks from other teams (ie slalomers, downhillers etc) come and join som...

Owning S-Lab 1,then S-Lab 2,tried 3VSL, use its frame on S-Labs and finally skating most of the time on Twister s II Pro I'd say... 1)S-Labs liner is better. Meaning,both liners are ok. But S-Labs (which is Customfit 3d) feels better than 3VSL (autofit). 2) 3VSL boot is narrower a bit,especially whe...

Same here. Haven't yet got a chance to try Seba,though local guys have one even of my size. Isusanin probably correct judging of soul/fsk/twister however I feel comfortable with Twisters II (even with the liner,yes!). Except for serious freeskating. And to mention how light Twisters are compared to ...

Upgraded my slalom department with shiny black twisters II. Trying to customize them for freeskating. I don't understand why anyone would choose twisters over FSK for anything other than pure slalom. Out of the box, twisters suffer too much in the comfort department. The liner would probably be the...

Vinz,thanks! Looks usefull. Basically, figure skaters do these tricks, they teach to bend your knees and do it without skates for many times before they try the real thing. I think that footgun and kazatchok are considered to be very harmfull to the knees. But again,they are performed frequently on ...

I can see from the picture that the frame is too much forward. Plus that Alu work looks pretty tricky. I though UFS was supposed to be a standard allowing the frames to be easily interchanged. :? Yes,it is moved forward. I've heard pple complaining about it. UFS is indeed universal at least as it c...

Just to mention that Soul frame should be modified a bit (Alu work) to fit FSK boot: Before: http://www.style-slalom.com/site/picts/soulslide_frame.jpg After : http://www.style-slalom.com/site/picts/soul_slideUFS2.jpg All this because of the nature of FSK boot : http://www.style-slalom.com/site/pict...

I have been using the Viper on my deemaxes for about 9 months. I upgraded from the stock FSK 237 frame, and even with my tiny feet (size 5) I don't find that it is too long at all. Personally I love it but I'm mainly into street skating rather than slalom. I like having a flat set up instead of the...
