I'm totally down with it! I've got a pair of Razor gen 4 boots with a RB UFS 90mm max frame loaded up with 4 80mm wheels each. I need those frames and wheels tho!!!

This is why I signed up for aggro skating in the first place!

Not a huge fan of powerblading, but I do enjoy a good edit none the less. However, to say it is "more aggressive" or "better" is subject to opinion. I'd say your clip was really good and quite fun to watch, but I'd rather watch somebody on a more typical agro frame doing aggressive inline skating.

I believe all aggressive sports are excellent. No aggressive sport is better than another. The only thing that is better are the participants.

However, it as a 'better agro skate' if you use these skates for your every day transportation as well. Then it makes more sense to use these with their bigger, & faster, wheels. More of a hybrid with dual purposes.

Great video.

What I'd like to see is a boot with tool-less interchangeable frames on the fly. Think front bike tire. The quick release mechanism somehow adapted to attach the frames.

Two sets of frames, one with 4x90's for getting to the spot, then sit down, pull your anti/freestyle/flat 58mm setup out for true aggro at the spot/skatepark. My skatepark is here on the river. So is my shop. 7 miles away. It would be truly epic to skate there, swap out the frames, get my bowl roll/grinds done, then swap and skate back. Frames with wheels fit nicely in a backpack. Size 14 skates DO NOT.

I blasted around the skatepark with my RazorGen7/rb solo frames with the 90mm wheels in them yesterday. Damn they get going fast! One problem tho, the larger wheel, while much faster, isn't as "quick" Which is rather important dropping in a vert. They don't seem to come up to speed as quickly as a 57mm wheel.

More studies are required......

Been around for a long time, "hypno" skates. I have 3 different weeled frames for mine and an ice frame.

Yeah, that's close. Thanks for posting the link. Those do look awesome.

What I'd need is a UFS compatible setup that I could use my grind soled boots with either a flat rockered 4x60, or a freestyle 2x60 or a 4x80 or 90 frame setup.

Skate over on the trail with the 90's on. Get to the skatepark swap off those for the 4x60 and work the bowl. Swap them out again for the 2x60 and grind the street course. Repeat, rinse and spit.

For what I'm envisioning, a special soul plate/ufs setup would be required. One that frame actually slid into place and was secured by means of a pin or latch of some kind.
