Motivo Tech Specs
The EDEA MOTIVO Intro Competitive Loop and Large Circles Figure Skate is a High Quality way for the for Serious Beginning Roller Figure Skater that prefers a mid strong construction Skate to have the support and control that ALL EDEA Skates offer, but at a very good price point for the Beginning Intro Competitive Loop and Large Circle Figure Skate. The Light Mid Stiff Construction features Beautiful Leather finish outside and Padded MicroFibre Lining. The EDEA MOTIVO is made with Revolutionary NEW Ultra Lightweight Materials, which means the MOTIVO is about 25% to 45% lighter than comparable Skating Boots and is available from SkatesUS.com. EDEA Skates are Beautiful Italian Skates, even at this smaller price point.
The MicroFibre Lining ventilates the perspiration quickly. The Anatomically Shaped Foam Padding 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 Learning and Performances. Other features are the Rounded Heel base Shape which more evenly distributes the weight and adds torsional stability, the Full Wrapped Padding of the collar of the Skate for wonderful comfort, and the Shaped Padded Tongue. The unique EDEA Footbed is torsionally rigid but with just a bit of vertical compression, that creates a lower center of gravity in the Skate, creating a lower displacement which greatly increases stability and control. 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 MOTIVO is!
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 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 Commercial 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.
EDEA and SkatesUS.com strongly recommend the use of Power Wedges to be installed between the curved Skating Boot and the flat Roller Frame to keep the foot in its natural and to NOT Deform the Boot. A major advantage of the Power Wedge is that it provides VERY Secure CONTACT between the Boot and Skate Frame. This gives more power to each push and stroke, thus the name POWER WEDGE. It is not necessary to use the power wedges on a Roller Frame with a sloped front.
Variant M Tech Specs
The Roll-Line Variant M (Metal Trucks) is for the beginning Competitive Skater in their Learning Stages and provides the same level of articulated performance as all of the upper level Roll-Line frames, but at a very affordable price. TheVariant M from SkatesUS.com provides great performance due to its innovative design and lightweight structure. TheRoll-Line Variant M is forged from a solid bar of Aircraft Aluminum Alloy and completely CNC machined. The Roll-LineMechanism Action adjustment system provides accurate Action adjustments using the 04 series, 13mm base King Pins with Adjustment Nuts and Locking Screws. The Variant M features Metal Trucks with the strongest Steel Axles available with adjustable Pivot Pins. The design and materials of Roll-Line Skates from SkatesUS.com, provides athletes the proper support of the skating shoe and give the most sensitive control, the greatest and absolute fastest response available from any skate, providing a sense of great stability and action.
Roll-Line Natural Rubber Suspensions provide quick and fluid energy transmission from the foot through the skate to the skating surface.
The Roll-Line Natural Rubber Suspensions are available in three hardnesses to provide the perfect skate alignment. The Upper (Large) Suspension provides the Stability of the Edge, while the Lower (Small) Suspension creates the Deep Edges, Great Turns and Spins. The Suspensions can be mixed and matched to provide a VERY Custom skate Action. Usually the Upper (Large) Suspension is harder, because it is carrying the weight of the Skater, and provides the edge stability, while the Lower (Small) Suspension is one or (more infrequently) two levels more flexible, providing great edges and changes.
Green = Flexible
Natural (Brown) = Medium
Yellow = Hard
The Variant M is provided with the Standard (Gray) Toe Stops (Metric).
Some of the newer versions of the Variant, may have a machined Slot in the base of the frame. This is an “In Production” upgrade that is being phased into producltion, and may not be on all and the smaller sizes. The purpose is to reduce weight, without reducing strength.
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. We highly recommend confirming correct size before ordering the items to be mounted. All International orders are final, once paid for and shipped.
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.
