WHICH USD AEON SKATES SHOULD I GET?

WHICH USD AEON SKATES SHOULD I GET?


ola youtube my name is Ricardo lino and I’m
a wheel addict today we are gonna talk about the differences in between the
different am skates this case right here the USD am skate is a state that came
out in 2016 and the main difference between the USDA and and every other
aggressive skate on the market is that the USDA is a unibody construction what
is that well a you Nevada construction is when
the frame and the shell which is the boot is all one piece basically there’s
no screws holding the frame to the boot it’s just a one-piece construction and
what’s the main advantage of this the main advantage is usually you would have
balls right here which would be fixing the frame to the boot but because on
these frame you don’t need it because that’s the unibody construction again
you already know frame and boot all in one piece instead of that they end up
having two holes on the inside and those holes are spaced for these wheels to go
through that will make the frame lower and will make you get closer to the
ground so when you’re skating these you are usually closer to the ground for a
lot of people they say that it gives them more control in my opinion I like
the feeling better because it feels like I’m closer to the ground I guess that’s
it now they do come in three different wheel sizes they come in 72 which is
this ones right here they also come in 60 millimeters which is these ones right
here and they come in 80 millimeters I do not have any 80 millimeters but these
ones are 80 millimeters they just came out recently over here on this table I
have all the models that are available of the USDA and in 2018 basically these
four models these ones right here they came out in the end of 2017 and this is
a limited edition they call it the 20 years special edition
and they made these ones for some of the skaters that scaled for USD and they
were basically some legends that the brand advocate Russia Johnson with the
red skate Albert OE with the green one Karlis piano ski from Brazil with the
black one and Billy O’Neill from New York with the white one these are the
four models that we don’t have here but the main difference between these ones
and the team skates is that the team skates come with a different liner all
the team skates come with a skinny boy liner we have made a few reviews about
the my feet liners and the skinny boy was one of the liners that you already
spoke about a few times so if you want to see any video about that liner you
can just go on the videos that we already made and check them out also
these ones that I just said they come with actually with my favorite liner for
the a ends which is the second skin liner which is a little bit slimmer but
on this model they even have laces on top now I’m gonna stop talking about
this and I’m gonna talk about the main difference between the 60 the 72 and 80
and the main differences in between these skates is obviously the wheel size
obviously the 70 to have bigger wheels and the 60s and eighties will have
bigger wheels but I will then affect the way that you skate if you have the
sixties or if you have a 72 you will see right here 72 is the frame is going to
be a little bit longer it’s also a little bit taller right here you can see
the frame of the 72 is a little bit taller on the 80 millimeter skate the
frame is even going to be a little bit longer obviously you’ll have a smaller
age block on the 72 then you have on the 60 how will that affect the way that you
skate what you should know is that when you have a taller frame like these and
with a shorter age block it’s easier for you to get will bite which means that
it’s easy for you to get stuck on a Ledge or on the rail there are some guys
that will skate them just like nothing some guys like Nick Lomax will do like a
frontside tort like most of us would never be able to do on the 60s just
because they are skilled and probably girls can’t even do frontside tour CDs
which are eighties only very few people would be able to do it but one thing is
for sure the bigger the wheels the smoother the roll is going to be right
that’s the basic thing if you have 480 millimeters you go it’s going to be
easier for you to roll through everything so gonna be easy to roll
downstairs it’s just gonna give you a better ride but at the same time if you
want to try a topside trick even if it’s not aged block-based trick if you want
to try any topside trick on the 80s is going to be a lot harder because with
the taller frame you’re gonna need to bend more and then not everyone has that
skill the same if you got to do a way out if you’re gonna do a Royale let’s
see it here if you’re gonna do a Royale on a 60s you see the boot will touch
right here but under 72 you see that the angle is completely different and if I
if I would have a 80 here I’m sure that 80 would be something like that the
whole goal with this video is for you to understand that these skates are
different but they both have advantages in conclusion 80 millimeters compared to
the 60s or 72 is compared to the sixes bigger wheels bigger wheelbase smoother
better ride 60 millimeters obviously a better grind skate a much easier grind
skate still a really good roll because it’s a flat set up but you can’t really
compare it with a 72 or you can’t even compare it with a 80 millimeters and
there’s one other difference that I can’t really show you here because I
don’t have the eighties but on the 80 millimeters for extra support they come
with a different system they do not have this fresh but they do have a ratchet
see a ratchet system which is just like the 80 millimeters come with this type
of system basically instead of having just a strap that can get loose it
doesn’t let you type the skate as much on 80 millimeters you can just crank it
up and make sure that it’s super tight so now you know about the ends my main
goal with this video was just to show you some of differences between these
skates if you have any doubts or if there’s anything that you want to know
about any of these skates just let me know in the comments or
if there’s any other state that you would like me to review or to show you
something about drop me a comment if you like this video do not forget to give me
some thumbs up if you didn’t like it give me some thumbs down and like I
always say more important than anything else just don’t forget why we all
started skating because it’s fun cheers guys and see you soon

Nice Review!! I have in my wishlist the Powerslide Fitness-Inline-Skate Doop Swift Trinity 110. Would be cool if you can make a little review 🙂 Cheers Maestro!!

Great video! I skate 60's but with 64mm wheels and an anti rocker set up and it feels great! Top tricks are smooth as butter!
In my opinion 80mm are just too much for a skate to do grinds on the H Block. If you can do it fair play that's impressive but not for me 😅😁

Aeon 80mm are my next skate! Would love to see Kizer come out with an 80mm frame with an H-block for my Xsjados in the meantime.

Great video as always, after skating razor skates for years last year I wanted a change and went for the Billy O'Neill aeons after a bit of getting used to skating flat setup this is the best decision I've ever made skates are great just why didn't they come out years ago haha.

hahahah didn't you make a video bitching about how they shouldn't make this skate because we have fought so hard for ufs skates and now you say you like them. i personally don't like ufs skates i feel i lose a lot torque because the ufs setup isn't solid so you lose energy in your push. ifeel i get better push with a fixed frame setup.

Ricardo! Great video 😀
A few weeks back, I posted a reaction under one of your videos with a question about the USD Aeons 🙂 (I did not know how to contact you otherwise)
Funny, yesterday at noon I received the 60mm. and in the evening I saw this video xD My purchase was the right one 😀
I'm 32 and getting back into aggressive inline skating :s HELP but boy I'm excited!!! My main goals are learning to drop in and I really want to learn the royale 🙂
For cruising and some "Urban" (Zwolle, Netherlands xD) skating, I bought the Powerslide Kaze 110's. So, now I'm broke but you have full inline skating support from the Netherlands!
Keep up the good work! and if you are in the neighborhood we can make contact if you want 🙂
Greetings Casper

Is there any way to make things easier before skating?
like preparation: how long it takes, what gears are a must have, what may/may not be necessary.

Great explanation of the skates lino. Can you please do a video on which agressive skates are better for wide feet, razors ,or usd.

I've had all three but I've settled on two models. The 80s which are so much fun and a great get-around-town and filming setup (BUT give you the option to do some grinds if you feel the urge(and we all do!)) and the 60s when I know I will be filmed and ledges are the order of the day. Honestly, my opinion, I didn't feel like the 72 was a good compromise for me. I mean it would be perfect to just have one setup for all but having two pairs in the car isn't so bad.

Hey I think I want to get a pair of aeon 60s but I’m not sure about the size. I wear a US men’s 10.5 in sneakers and idk if I should get the 9-10 or 11-12?

aeon sizing confuses me. im EU42 which is usually US9 but not for Aeons! My foot is 27cm. Now somebody told me i should get Aeons in EU43-44 cuz the EU41-42 shell might be a tad too small. But…..43-44 shell is 1.5cm longer than my foot and i think thats kinda much and i dont want clown boots 🙁

Acabo de comprar mis aeon 60 mm. Soy novato y me recomendaron esa medida tal cual lo describes. Muy buen resumen. Gracias.

Bigger Wheels means smoother ride but couldn't you just make up for that by going after softer wheels then 90a? Maybe even better besrings?

Hi Ricardo. Love your vids! If one is not concerned with doing grinds and wants to focus on transition, what's best wheel size for riding ramps, quarter pipes and bowels? Is it easier for a beginner to have smaller wheels for ramp, pipe and bowels?

Thank u Ricardo now i understand it^^. Which one did u recommend to start aggressive skating, only a short break over 10 yrs :D….. I don´t know which i wanna buy….

I’m thinking of getting my first pair of skates – Aeon 72s.

Used to skate as a teenager and picking it up again aged 24.
I want to do a lot of cruising round to get back into the feeling and eventually do some jumps and grinds street style. Do the Aeon 72s sound good for this?? I’m worried about small wheels if I’m cruising round on uneven pavements.

I'm getting back into skating again and I'm stuck between the 60s or the roces m12 cam u give me some advice Ricardo!!! Already great thanks and keep up the good work
