Hey guys, it's been a while!
I quit my job and and have basically just been skating this past year. I have tried many, many setups, but below is definitely my favorite freeride/downhill setup ever. 2013 Seba Igor boot
with Seba FR cuff
, 5x84mm Raps Extreme frame
(listed as 5x80, but fits 84mm).
The 2013 Seba Igor is quite a large improvement from the 2012 model. All the improvements have been made inside of the boot with the liner; from suede in 2012 to some sort of micro fiber - or something - in 2013. The 2013 model doesn't rub my skin off at the top of the cuff, like 2012 suede one did and I'm able to skate for hours - pushing and downhill - in them, instead of just downhill with the 2012 model.
I changed the carbon Igor cuff to an FR cuff. I found that I needed more flexibility for sliding than the carbon cuff allowed. I tried it and it was definitely the right move, as flexibility in sliding increased, yet it is still supportive. I really enjoy more freedom while carving as well.
The 5x84mm Raps Extreme frame is a rare one. It is made with high quality aluminum and it is the stiffest and strongest frame that I've ever used. 5x84 has the stability and grip that a 5x90 set up does, but going into slides is more effortless and fun.
I'm trying different wheels all of the time, but generally use some version of 80-84mm 84-85a Hyper wheels.
