If you’re not familiar with one of Ireland's most technical, stylish skaters to ever grace a pair of skates, Albert Hooi…where’ve you been?! Anyway, spend little time having look at some of his awesome sections in skate videos of the past (any of the old Kizer or USD videos will leave your jaw on the floor in amazement) - Albert's skating is sometimes so technical you'll be rewinding clips over and over again trying to work out how its possible to do the tricks he's done!. His style is sceond to none also. His pro model Aeon is based around the colour ways of his previous Pro Model USD Throne skate, maybe one of the most popular Thrones to ever be released - paying homage to his irish heritage, the green and white colour way with the infamous Conas Ata Tu logo is a perfect re-imagination of his famed Throne skate.
For USD, the Aeon would be about performance, the key word in the creative project. We designed an affordable, high performance skate that combines the boot and soulplate (unibody), minimizing hardware and moving you closer to the ground, enabling perfect control while at the same time maximizing the possibilities of larger wheel use with all the benefits of this new, low center of gravity.
You heard right. This skate is not UFS Compatible. Are we crazy? Consider this:
UFS was invented as a standard mounting system many years ago and is optimized for a maximum wheel size of 60mm. But since its creation, larger wheels such as 72mm have become popular again, a wheel size that reminds us of the popularity of OG blading roots, allowing better roll while enabling great control and space to grind.
We are proud to announce that with our new unibody design our boot is actually lower with 72mm wheels than many other skates that use 58mm wheels.
Remember when USD made the first ever carbon skate for aggressive skaters? We took a risk, and revolutionized the skate industry, and now we’re doing it again. The USD Aeon has been designed from scratch to be affordable while being perfect right out of the box. If you’re worried about not being able to change the frames, complete unibody shells including soulplate and frames will of course be available straight away.
Of course, the performance of our new skate is not all that we are proud of and we have spared no expense at finding the most comfortable liner we can produce. The Aeon includes a heat-moldable MyFit Skinny Boy custom liner - you could almost call it a second skin, close fitting and stretch-adaptable with very little volume and no pressure points.
The USD Aeon skate is therefore a one piece, lightweight and comfortable skate with the lowest profile ever made, allowing for a whole new level of advance performance for street skaters worldwide.
