LIFESTYLE

Remnants of the night before are visible on the sidewalks, along with the few sleepy-eyed passersby, who are ready to turn in after a long night. A city that never sleeps creates a tipping point between where one day ends and the other begins. You may have a pressing deadline that’s in the back of your mind but that can wait. For now the banks, the curbs, the ledges, you’ve got the streets to yourself… there’s a reason you love this city.

AGGRESSIVE

AGGRESSIVE A dried-up, rundown swimming pool, randomly placed rails, an abandoned parking structure all make for the perfect urban playground. The neighborhood skate park is where you first learned to pump a transition, and while some things have changed, skating’s still a way of life. There still exists a thirst for finding new obstacles, going bigger than ever before, and turning the ordinary into extraordinary

ALL NEW FRAME TECH A key component that greatly enhances the performance of the all new Front Street and Unnatural skates is K2’s new UFS compliant frame. This frame can to be ridden flat ensuring that your inner wheels won’t get hung up on H-Block based tricks. For those that want to ride a rockered setup, K2’s frame hardware allows you to add rocker to your wheel setup without having to buy smaller wheels. If that’s not enough, we channeled out a huge groove that works in harmony with the new Aggressive Base to create the easiest of platforms for locking on, whether riding a flat or rockered setup.

BUYERS GUIDE

TECH TERMINOLOGY

A GUIDE TO CHOOSING

THE PERFECT SKATE

FOR YOU

CUFF TECHNOLOGY

CLOSURE SYSTEM

Aggressive Cuff

Traditional Lacing

Customize your lacing and knot the same way you tie your shoes.

Speed Lacing System

Secure your skates with one pull. The K2 Speed Lacing System makes it easy to get in and out of your skates. Just one pull of the strap, roll, and stow and you’re ready to skate – it’s that easy.

BOA® Closure Sytem

Inline skating is an amazingly fun way to engage in an active lifestyle. Skating is one of few true full body workouts that is considered low impact while burning a significant amount of calories. What sets inline apart from other activities is how accessible skating can be. Whether you are looking for a “greener” way to commute or a low impact way to exercise, inline skating offers something for everyone. START HERE

By designing K2 Skate’s upper and cuff around the Boa® Closure System, K2 has created the most comfortable and high performance fit available. The Boa® Closure System gives skaters the ability to fine-tune their fit while on the trail. This eliminates pulling over to the side of the trail to tighten your skate laces, allowing you to keep cruising. The Boa® Closure System also allows for skaters of any age to get in and out of their skates in seconds.

Aggressive skaters need more support than most skater types. The development process for the K2 Aggressive cuffs involves huge gaps, slides and plenty of topside and boot tricks. This durable cuff is as good as it gets when you are out to destroy.

Stability Plus Cuff

This cuff sets the standard for recreational and fitness skating cuffs. Stability Plus is the perfect blend of support where you need it, eliminating overall skate weight and offering versatility for a wide range of skaters.

VO2 Cuff

Designing cuffs for big-wheeled X-Training skates can be a challenge. You need to account for the higher wheel height, which means more support with no extra weight. The VO2 cuff creates the best of both worlds: extra support and lightweight design.

Radical Cuff

Cuffs on high-end training skates are different than the rest – designed to be low-profile, lightweight and to let your skating technique take over. The Radical cuff does it all while offering the perfect amount of support.

Radical Pro Carbon Cuff

If you are thinking about getting into the sport for the first time or even upgrading your current skates, below are some key things you need to know in order to select the perfect skate. FIT Comfort and performance are what defines a good skate fit. The ideal fit has your toes lightly touching the front of the boot while the rest of the boot feels like a semi-firm handshake around the foot. This snug fit will get a little looser as you break in your skates over time. Going too big or too small on your inline skates can create fit problems in the long run. A sloppy fit delivers poor performance and a skate that fits too tightly can cut off circulation.

WHEEL SIZE While inline wheels have grown over the years, the thought process that “bigger is better” doesn’t always apply. Wheel size should be based on skater ability and skating style. New skaters who are getting comfortable

on their inline skates will appreciate smaller (78mm) wheel configurations or Hi-Lo (84mm/80mm) setups. More experienced skaters that use skating for a workout tool will utilize a bigger wheel (84mm) that allows for higher speeds. Advanced skaters looking to maximize speed, gravitate towards larger wheels (90mm, 100mm, or 110mm/100mm Hi-Lo configurations). For advanced urban skaters requiring more freestyle performance, we recommend a wheel size of 80mm to blend speed with optimal maneuverability. Aggressive skaters who demand specialized performance for the ramp, park, or street require skates with smaller wheels; the K2 Unnatural comes with a 60mm wheel setup but can accommodate a maximum wheel size of 61mm.

BEARINGS

PROTECTIVE GEAR

There are two types of bearings found on inline skates; ABEC rated bearings have set the standard since day 1 and ILQ bearings are designed specifically for inline skates. ABEC bearings are rated at ABEC 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9. A general rule of thumb for ABEC bearings is the higher the number, the tighter the tolerances, which leads to higher speeds and a smoother roll. ILQ bearings come in many configurations and are geared towards the high-end skater. ILQ bearings differ from ABEC in that ILQ bearings feature 6 balls instead of 5, which increases load rating.

Do you wear a seatbelt when you drive? Do you use eye protection when you use power tools? Do you wear pads and a helmet when skating? You should’ve answered yes to all three. Smart skaters wear protection, (helmets and wrist guards at a minimum) to ensure that high abrasion areas are covered. The design of today’s pad sets create protective gear that is light, ventilated, and breathable, keeping you comfortable in a pad set that fits like a second skin. Remember, the right fit is key to any pad set and helmet. Make sure your gear has a snug fit and doesn’t shift while skating.

Using carbon fiber in design is all about keeping the Radical Pro the lightest marathon skate in its class. With an incredible stiffness to weight ratio, it delivers proven long-distance performance.

HI-LO TECHNOLOGY Performance Hi-Lo

Featured on the K2 V02 100 X Pro, Performance Hi-Lo Technology allows the skater to take advantage of the acceleration and maneuverability of the smaller front wheels while enjoying the topend speed of the larger rear wheels. Performance Hi-Lo skates are defined by a 10mm difference between the front and rear wheels.

Jr. Boa® Cuff

K2 and Boa® worked together to create this seamless integration of a Youth skate with a Boa® Closure System. This cuff offers the maximum amount of support that kids need and provides the “easy-on, easy-off” properties that make a Boa® Closure System a must have on youth product.

Youth Hi-Lo

Featured in the K2 Youth series, Youth Hi-Lo is designed to increase confidence and minimize risk by creating a low center of gravity; providing excellent stability and maneuverability. Skates outfitted with Youth Hi-Lo Technology have a 4mm difference in wheel sizes.

FRAME TECHNOLOGY Aggressive Frame

Aggressive frames are designed to grind and take a beating, which is why K2 uses the fastest-sliding, extra thick composite materials. The K2 Aggressive frame features our innovative hex frame spacers; making it easy to customize your wheel configuration from rockered to flat in no time, while also being fully UFS compatible.

F.B.I. Frame

The Frame Base Interlocking (F.B.I.) system creates a composite recreational frame that absorbs more road vibration than any other K2 frame. The F.B.I. is great for new skaters and those skating on rough terrain.

D.C. Aluminum Frame

Die Cast Aluminum frames are known for providing excellent power transfer and stability at any speed. The K2 DC Aluminum design delivers both properties in a medium-length, highly-maneuverable, fitnessoriented frame.

Hi-Lo Frame

Available in three different wheel configurations that each create different sets of user benefits, the K2 Hi-Lo frames take advantage of smaller wheels in the front and larger wheels in the back. This provides a stable, maneuverable frame that creates a skating position with a low center of gravity.

VO2.2 Frame

The V02.2 frame is a light, versatile Aluminum X-Training frame. This maneuverable frame has enough length and stiffness to provide stability at the highest speeds and offers a power transfer formerly only found in training skates.

Radical Frame

Built to deliver stability at the highest speeds possible, the Radical frame is an aluminum alloy Longmount frame, heat-treated for increased stiffness. The Radical frame can be adjusted laterally for a custom feel and is available in 4x100 and a 100mm/110mm Hi-Lo designs.

WHEEL FORMULAS Active Formula

VORTECH VENTILATION SYSTEM Integrated into the skate, this 3-part system is designed to keep feet cool and dry by channeling air through the base, footbed and upper.

Our Active formula wheels feature an 80A hardness that is proven to provide a smooth and stable ride ideal for fitness and recreational skaters alike.

Speed Formula
