Reckless Evader, the Future of the 59mm Wheel

Photo take by: KJ Garner 
The Reckless Evader is by far one of the hottest 59mm wheels on the market. The Reckless Evader comes in four different hardness to suit whatever style floor you skate on (88a, 93a, 95a, 97a). The biggest question you might ask is, how is the Evader any different then any other 59mm wheel on the market....... well, the answer is easy! Reckless wheels took the 59mm mid-width wheel to new heights. Rather then shaving off the wheel and making it flush to the core, we have added a lip which will allow for more efficient strait-away strokes and more dig in and out of the corners, that you would normally lose on any other mid-width, 59mm wheel. Our new revolutionary compound mixed with this amazing new design to a mid-width wheel just proves that GRN MNSTR Roller Sports is dedicated to the SPORT (Yes, I said it, and proud of it) and growth of Roller Derby and its athletes!

My two cents

My two cents.

I get asked for advice on skating and products a million times a day (ok maybe I exaggerated a little, but you get the point), and it’s filled mostly with the same questions.  The biggest one is about my AR-1 boots, and if I would skate on them if I didn’t design them.  Here’s the deal…First off having someone from WHATEVER sport you do designing and making product is a plus, because they’re actually interested in making what they believe is needed to fix the common issues, progress the sport, and make it better for the following athletes.  And two, its not always about turning a buck to profit off the massively growing industry. My boots were designed from the ground up to be comfortable, technical, and stylish. Scuff resistant hard-cap, heat moldable toe, so you can ditch the horrible looking toe guards. Un-countered sides near the pinky toe and ball of the foot, because that’s where most of the stress and pressure is placed. The wedge in the heel reduces a huge amount of shock and vibrations that irritate your feet. And a hypoallergenic, medical grade, foam tongue, that’s comfortable, conforms to the foot, and ACTUALLY STAYS IN PLACE.

Yeah, its all sounds like marketing BS, buts this is the kind of thinking a true lifetime skater thinks of and develops. I didn’t take one boot and go, “I’ll add some fur, and some padding, add some bells and whistles, and change a name…. Oh yeah, now it’s a derby skate”, I started with all of the issues I had and hated growing up skating, and I tried to eliminate them.  No, its not he best boot ever and it not for everyone, but I have to say- its changed the way people look at and select their next pair of skates, and its got all the other skate companies scrambling to do a better job with their product. I was a skater before derby, and I’ll be one after. This is not to say other brands of boots don’t work or that they don’t address the issues, but Antik has come at the issues from an entirely different thought process that others might find a little radical.

 So to answer the original question…Yes, I would still skate an AR-1 because a trusted, lifetime skater designed it with a skaters needs and wants in mind.

What makes a ¾ high Antik so special?

Before Antik boots were cool, they were functional.  The basis for the boots was to provide skaters with a comfortable, precise fit and the option of more ankle support. The ¾ design, unlike standard low boots, allows for the boots to truly follow the contours for the ankle and Achilles tendon. This contour creates a ‘hook’ that locks the heel in place, and gives you a secure, natural fit. This fit allows for your foot and boot to react as one, not your foot moving then the boot moving separately, which creates blisters and sore feet. The ¾ height also lets you cinch the boot higher and tighter than any other boot made. No matter how many straps, laces, or fastening systems a low boot has, there is no way to provide more ankle support, unless it covers you ankle.  This is why the ¾ design is special, and it’s only found on Antik Skate Boots.
