Re: Strange spare parts

I had very similar parts in RB-8 skates (so I assume the same is on all RB Twister boots). You put the large metal "rings" into the bottom of the plastic shell (from the inside beneath the liner), and then you would mount the frame so that the bolts are screwed into these rings.

Re: Anyone Have Experience with Freewave?

Hello, I am using Harimau for 1 year and 9 months now. They are not issue free, but I can say with confidence I would not enjoy doing slalom anymore if Jipe did not recommend FW to me 2 years back, because of the constant pain issues with all the other linerless boots. That is an individual thing bu...

Re: Couple of new slalom frames

As on your picture above, a lot of top level people in Asia skate on Trix/KSJ with silver/white shell. Is this some different material for constructing the shells that is being evaluated?

Re: After Seba Trix...

+1 for freewave for letting me do slalom without ankle pain. the only other reasonable option I know about is to "downgrade" to high carbon (the 2011 model with removable liner). I say with removable liner because I skated my high lights on friday (4th session since new) and had quite a lo...

Re: Seba High Light, can anybody review them?

Jipe: The High Light boots are narrower than Igors at the inside, the fit feels much closer to classic High and does not remind me of Igors at all. I remember that in Igor I could lift my fingers up and wiggle the fronts of my feet sideways a bit. Kazanaki, you are completely right in general. Our c...

Re: Seba High Light, can anybody review them?

I have also heard that the carbon bases are always made by hand (as opposed to the plastic shells) which often results in different mounting block positions.

Re: Seba High Light, can anybody review them?

So my High Lights EU 47 arrived and yesterday I skated the city a bit. The bad news first: they are about 5mm larger then my old 2009 Highs (EU 47). Before anybody says "this is a one piece skate so you should have expected that" - when I was ordering I said what size my previous Highs wer...

Re: After Seba Trix...

Did you get the 2013 version? I heard it has a better inner material compared to 2011/2012. I think having High + Trix is a good combination, you can use the comfy Highs when you need to be in your skates for extended period and use Trix for all slalom. I think buying iGors now would be too much of ...

Re: Are Seba wheels rebranded Hyper wheels?

Domsablos, is there anybody who would prefer never to practice outdoors? a. If the surface is brushed concrete, polished hardwood floor and similar then the wheels could easily last half a year, compared to 4-5 weeks on asphalt in summer (warm asphalt, assuming say 10h practice a week, 80kg person, ...

Re: Seba High Light, can anybody review them?

He did not mention awful break in pain and I somehow forgot to ask, I guess I assumed that since it is one piece it will be similar to other boots like this so around 2-3 weeks. I have seen the skates and held them in my hands, they did not appear bulky at all, but then again his boots are 42 and my...

Re: Seba High Light, can anybody review them?

I've been talking to Florian Schneider who was the judge at a battle in Přerov (Czech rep.). He is using Seba High Light for 2.5 months now. * he says they are very comfortable even if he has to wear them for extended periods of time. * the built-in liner is thicker than Igor but the material is mo...

Re: Seba High Light, can anybody review them?

I don't speak much German, but there was a thread on 4wheelfreestyle.de where Florian Schneider wrote that High Light is the same weight as 2009 Carbon Pro. Interestingly, at ISPO Munich there was a new Carbon Pro 2013 model shown, which is also linerless and thus lighter even more, and the boot sha...

Seba High Light, can anybody review them?

Has anybody already bought the High Lights and can share any juicy details? For example, is the shape/skelet of the boot molded the same as Igor/KSJ? The classic Highs gave me quite a nice fit, but Igor was quite wide in comparison especially in front, so I am wondering if the experience is now clos...

Re: New to skating - Size 13 required

I had the issue Shaw is mentioning on Seba High EU47 (243mm frame) - it was too "wobbly" and also difficult for toe tricks. Then I switched to an older RB Twister 250mm frame I had from before, which was better but I could not center the RB frame on Highs properly... Finally I ended up wit...
