Usd Legacy Carlos Pianowski

September 5, 2006

Legacy Relaunch, Series 2 Since the beginning Carlos was a Legacy lover, but it was not everyones favourite skate, and here are the main reasons why :

1. The adjustable backslide plate

2. The weight

3. the narrow fit

4. Liner issues

5. Too many parts

So with the Carlos skate all of the above was taken into account. The skates comes out of the box with the new backslide plate which makes it super easy to look on any obstacles, wide, with a perfectly formed angled groove it is easy to look on for royals and torques on any surface. Smooth sliding for ultimate control on the grind.

The second issue was the weight. Even thought the Legacy was not excessively heavy the perceptions and feelings were that it was slightly overweight. To fix this we took all the material which we felt was uncessesary out of the soulplates, also we took material out of the USS plate and made the plate a bit thinner . As a result the skeleton including the aluminimum cuff part now weights just 620g yet it still offers all the support needed with the forward flex that you are looking for. Also the center of gravity has been reduced some Milimeters for more control.

The total weight of the skate in size 43 is now just 1554 g. If you weigh your own skate right now you will be surprised to find how lightweight this skate has become.

The fit and comfort of the skate has been totally reworked. The front is about 3mm wider giving a much more comfortable fit and also the heel area and ankle area is wider proving more comfort and still a snug fit.

Together with the sifika SL 310 liner (you cannot go wrong with sifika liners) and the 45° heel strap, the ankle lock on has been improoved while giving an extremely comfortable ride.

Last but not least, due to the adjustment possibilities of the Cuff and Soulplates there was too many parts on the last skate. All the washers have been replaced by bigger custom made screws.

So in the new legacy you will find 24 less peices, so it is now easier and faster to mount, with less parts to lose and easier customisation.

The new Legacy is not only a lighter skate, but it is a completely new story, allchanged and improved throughout the boot.
