Default Carbon skates?


Wanted to know what you guys thinking about carbon skates for aggressive and jumps.
I heard Leon Basin saying he felt the carbon skates transferring the shocks harder, did you guys feel it?

Thanks and cheers!

I understand the reasoning behind the concern, but it is not something you need to worry about. I have skated every fathomable kind of setup, I currently skate a sea CJ/SX carbon boot and it is no problem. Hard plastic shells & leather don't do anything to absorb or dampen shock.

Carbon boots are stiffer and more responsive. They fit better. They are durable.

You need a good foot bed, be it in the form of an insert that comes with the skate, a good insole, a liner with a good foot bed, or whatever. Most come with a thick piece of shock absorption under the footbed/liner/insole.

If you can get old school Fiziks frames or Create CRS, that may help too.
