One look at the USD Shadow Dustin Latimer and you'll notice its color scheme pays homage to Dustin's favorite USD Throne Classic skates. This nod to the past is a celebration of the history and culture of rollerblading, as part of the 25-year-old Legend editions. It's a reminder of the classic designs that have inspired generations of skaters. USD rekindles the spirit of the original DL Xsjado skates with a reimagined footwrap design. They are optimized for providing additional stability, heel lock, and power transfer while skating. This design emphasizes the core purpose of inline skates, delivering a skate that performs exceptionally well. The new Xgrip outsole is molded after the Shadow soulplate, ensuring a seamless fit between the components of the skate. This integration, coupled with the Shadow cuff and shock absorber, results in a lower center of gravity. The benefits are numerous, including enhanced lateral support, improved fit, superior cushioning, secured heel lock, and reinforced toecap. The USD Shadow DL boasts the Kizer Type X frame, an homage to the old Xsjado Mook frames, but with upgraded Kizer technology. This frame is designed to provide skaters with optimal control and precision during their tricks and maneuvers on all obstacles. To complete the package, the USD Shadow is equipped with USD Team 58mm 90A Ultra High Rebound (UHR) wheels and Wicked ABEC 9 bearings. These components ensure a smooth and efficient roll.
