SPIN Skate Frame
SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Specialty Skate Frame
-The SPIN plate, designed for figure, presents an innovative angle of the kingpins. The new machining ensures less twisting and an immediate response to the pressures received during the exercises.
-Sizes: 120 – 130 – 140 – 150 – 160 – 170 – 180.
The Roll-Line SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Specialty Skate Frame represents a culmination of a great deal of research in Figure Plate Technology by Roll-Line of Italy. The new SPIN is the Professional Figure and Loop Skate that is engineered for Figures and especially for Loops.
The Roll-Line SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Specialty Skate Frame, Skates very similar to the action of the original Hodura Skate, only better. Many of the top U.S. Figure Skaters are using the SPIN for Loops, with great success.
The Roll-Line SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Skate Frame IS similar to the DANCE Skate Frame (except without a Toe Stop) and very slightly dialed back responsiveness to help create more stability. The Roll-Line SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Skate Frame is also wonderfully great for Compulsory Dance, Recreational, and Rhythm Skating, where there is a desire to NOT have a Toe Stop and there is a great need for weaving and bobbing and quick changes of directions and edges, the Roll-Line SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Skate Frame is THE BEST.
The SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Skate from SkatesUS.com takes advantage of its NEW innovative design utilizing a Wider Angle Steering Mechanism and ultra lightweight structure. The Roll-Line SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Skate (just like the Energy Titanium and Energy Steel) is forged from a solid bar of Ergal Aluminum Alloy and completely CNC machined. Ergal is one of the Strongest and Lightest Aluminum Alloys available and has a lower expansion coefficient and offers the best coiled-spring response. The Roll-Line Click Action adjustment system provides optimum, accurate, articulate, and consistent Action. The SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Skate features the strongest Steel Axles available and adjustable Pivot Pins and Does Not have a Toe Stop Mount. 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 and Urethane Suspensions both provide incredibly 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 and Urethane Suspensions are available in five 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 Loops. The Suspensions, for Figures can be mixed and matched in both Rubber and Urethane and in Hardnesses 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.
For LOOPS it is sometimes suggested to use an appropriate Flexible Upper (Large) Suspension, considering the Skaters height and weight and the small diameter Loops being Skated, with the Lower (Small) Suspension configured two (2) levels Harder. This configuration provides a skate that reacts and feels like the old and no longer available Hodura skate.
The list below is from Most Flexible to Hardest and integrates Rubber and Urethane Suspensions.
Green = Rubber = Flexible
Natural (Brown) = Rubber = Medium
Clear Green = Urethane = Extra Flexible
Grey = Urethane = Flexible
Clear Blue = Urethane = Medium
Yellow = Rubber= Hard
Clear = Urethane = Hard
Clear Yellow = Urethane = Extra Hard
The SPIN Professional Figure and Loop Skate comes with one (1) set of Urethane Suspensions (with the hardness based on the Frame size (the factory standard). Other hardnesses and combinations may be purchased separately, and a set of tools.
