The EDEA RITMO Semi Professional FreeStyle and Dance Skate is the best Skating Boot for Mid-Level Dance and FreeStyle Skaters. The RITMO can also be used for Figures (Large Circles and Loops) ONLY, but is not suggested to use for Dance and FreeStyle at the same time. Possibly after using the RITMO for Figures for a year or two, then use them for Dance and FreeStyle.
The EDEA RITMO Semi Professional FreeStyle and Dance Skate is Ultra Light and Mid-Strong Roller Construction with Beautiful Leather finish outside and perforated MicroFibre Lining and Planar Footbed. The RITMO is made with Revolutionary NEW Ultra Lightweight Materials which means that the RITMO is 25% to 45% lighter than comparable Skating Boots. Available from SkatesUS.com, the RITMO is designed for High Performance Roller Large Figures and Loops and Mid-Level FreeStyle and DanceRoller Skating and is incredibly comfortable.
The MicroPerforated MicroFibre Lining is long lasting and ventilates the perspiration quickly. The Anatomically Shaped Padding of Memory Foam (like on your mattress) and Formed fit of the boot is shaped by the Thermoformable Structure and provides the best in foot contact and control while giving the movement range to allow Great Performances. Other features are the comfortable Back Cuff Padding, the Rounded Heel Shape which more evenly distributes the weight and adds torsional stability, the Full Wrapped Padding, the Shaped Extra Padded Tongue and the Sewn in strong forged long Hooks. The Footbed has direct Ventilation and is torsionally rigid but with just a bit of vertical compression in the Ball of the foot, that creates a lower center of gravity in the Skate, that creates a lower displacement which greatly increasing stability and control.
The EDEA RITMO Semi Professional FreeStyle and Dance Skate now has a very strong and supported PLANAR Sole, which is Flat and Ventilated to match the mounting surface of the Skate Frames. With these new materials, it is now possible to properly mount the Skate Frames to the Skating Boots. Be sure to use the enclosed EDEA “Double Helix” special EDEA screws (with a High thread that cuts and a Low Thread that grips). This system can be confidently used for most Competitive Roller Skaters, but if you are a heavy duty FreeStyle Skater, it would still be suggested to use a Bolt Mount.
For a very detailed Technology White Paper on the differences between EDEA Skates and traditional Leather Skates, please take a little time and read “Why EDEA Skates are so Special“ from the Learning Center of SkatesUS.com.
In most cases the Break-In period is just a few hours, not days, weeks, or Months, but the most important Features are how LIGHT and COMFORTABLE The EDEA RITMO Semi Professional FreeStyle and Dance Skate is.
The Sizing of EDEA Skates is very consistent for each size and between models. Frame sizing for Roller Skates to EDEA Skates should be completed with much care. In Roller Skating different types of Skating require very different positions of the front axle in relation to the ball of the foot. When Mounting EDEA Skates, please follow the correct Roller Frame Mounting procedures for all EDEA Skates. SkatesUS.com is the number one expert at mounting the High performance Roll-Line Roller Frame of your choice. The Sizing and Mounting information is in the Learning Center on SkatesUS.com.
EDEA Skates fit a great majority of Skaters (because of the newly designed shoe lasts), right out of the box, but some have need of special accommodations to give that perfect fit. EDEA Skates ALL have a Thermoformable Structure which allows manipulation of the boot to give the perfect Custom fit without the Custom price . EDEA Skates use a special Memory Foam (like on your mattress) and DO NOT use gel packs or standard foam that are heated in an oven, then the foot inserted to shape the inside padding of the boot only, this method allows change and movement of the old style padding over time, which is not a good thing. EDEA Skates DO use very high tech materials (similar to a carbon fiber or Kevlar material) which can be shaped using high power hair dryers and Special Shoe Lasts, in very specific locations or general widening or narrowing of the Skating Boot. This “Shaping” is actually changing the Structural Shape of the Skate. Once the boot is “Shaped”, it will stay in that shape, until the “Shaping” process is changed again. SkatesUS.com provides this very special Custom Fitting service.
Complete EDEA Skate Outfits
SkatesUS.com is providing the opportunity to have a completed EDEA Skate Outfit including the top Roller Skate Frames appropriately used at this level. All of these Custom High Level EDEA Skate Outfits will take about one week, as not all of the Roller Skate Frames are always in stock. It is highly recommended to use this time make sure that the fit of the EDEA Skate is proper prior to any Mounting of the Blade or “Shaping” of the Boot.
When the EDEA Skate Outfit is paid for, SkatesUS.com will ship the EDEA Skates to verify the correct size and then we will cover the cost of the return shipping after trying on the EDEA Skates prior to mounting the Roller Skate Frames and complete the very high level, high performance EDEA Skate Outfit. For more details on this service see the SkatesUS.com Boot Sizing Policy (which is only valid in the United States). Once the Roller Skate Frames are Mounted or the Boot is “Shaped”, the Skates are no longer considered New and CANNOT be Returned. All International orders are final, once paid for and shipped.
The EDEA Skate Complete Outfit is only returnable if the items are in new, unused condition, meaning they have not been shaped or mounted prior to return. We highly recommend confirming correct size before ordering the items to be mounted. Please refer to the SkatesUS.com Boot Sizing Policy listed under our Terms & Conditions of site for more information
Custom Shaping Services
SkatesUS.com will help with any Custom Shaping Services, as needed. There may be labor charges for the Custom Shaping Services. Some of our Dealers are also trained in the Shaping process and can do an excellent job locally.
Remember with EDEA Skates, the Carbon Fibre type material is not like leather and will not just change shape on its own. If something pressures, it will always pressure, until it is adjusted and then once the Skate is adjusted, it will not pressure and will stay that way unless it is changed again. When we are “Shaping” the Skate, we are “Shaping” the shell or structure of the Skate. Once it hardens into the new shape, it will stay that way until changed again.
The best way for us to work on the Skates, is of course to have the Skaters feet to put into the Skates and find out where the pressure points are.
If that is not possible, please trace the foot on a piece of paper and mail (yes, snail mail) or put good measurements on the drawings in mm or inches. When a drawing is scanned or faxed, it is scaled and makes a good reference, but is not accurate for measurements. The second part of this is to take some digital pictures of the feet and E-Mail them to OrderDesk@SkatesUS.com and to Info@SkatesUS.com. Pictures will help us to visualize the issues, but the drawings with measurements are essential.
SkatesUS.com is also providing (if selected) the custom Mounting Services to complete your very high level, high performance EDEA Skate Outfit. We will complete a standard Roller Skate Mount based on the normal Center of Balance.
Once completed Enjoy Skating in EDEA Skates!!! Don’t forget the GREAT Roll-Line Wheels and Bearings. A new pair of Skates with old Wheels and bearings is like buying a car with worn out and out of balance tires. This is usually not a good feeling.
