GIOTTO Skate Frames
The Roll-Line Giotto Professional Figure Skate is the most Accurate and Articulate Skate available today. The Giotto is the Professional Skate that is winning more World Figure Titles than any other Skate. The Giotto Professional Figure Skate from SkatesUS.com provides the best possible performance due to its innovative design and ultra lightweight structure. The Roll-Line Giotto Professional Figure Skate (just like the Energy Titanium and Energy Steel) is forged from a solid bar of Ergal Aluminum Alloy and completely CNC machined. Ergal is one of the Strongest and Lightest Aluminum Alloys available and has a lower expansion coefficient and offers the best coiled-spring response. The Roll-Line Click Action adjustment system provides optimum, accurate, articulate, and consistent Action adjustments using the 04 series, 13mm base King Pins with Adjustment Click-Nuts and Locking Screws. The Giotto features the strongest Steel Axles available and adjustable Pivot Pins. The Giotto is an Energy Steel without a Toe Stop mount. The design and materials of Roll-Line Skates from SkatesUS.com, provides athletes the proper support of the skating shoe and give the most sensitive control, the greatest and absolute fastest response available from any skate, providing a sense of great stability and action.
Roll-Line Natural Rubber and Urethane Suspensions both provide incredibly quick and fluid energy transmission from the foot through the skate to the skating surface.
The Roll-Line Natural Rubber Suspensions are available in three hardnesses and Urethane Suspensions are available in five hardnesses to provide the perfect skate alignment. The Upper (Large) Suspension provides the Stability of the Edge, while the Lower (Small) Suspension creates the Deep Edges, Great Turns and Spins. The Suspensions, for Figures can be mixed and matched in both Rubber and Urethane and in Hardnesses to provide a VERY Custom skate Action. Usually the Upper (Large) Suspension is harder, because it is carrying the weight of the Skater, and provides the edge stability, while the Lower (Small) Suspension is one or (more infrequently) two levels more flexible, providing great edges and changes.
The list below is from Most Flexible to Hardest and integrates Rubber and Urethane Suspensions.
