    Aeons>5th elements ?

    Are the Aeons designed like older skates such as 5th elements?
    Are the souls and frames one piece and the boot a seperate bit ?

    Or is it all one piece ?

    Aeons are one piece except the cuff. You just replace the frame/shell/soul/boot as a whole unit when something wears out.

      Could see Roces biting the one piece idea for a new 5th Element. They already copied the 'invisible frame' idea with their Triskates although granted that was probably a lot cheaper than a brand new skate. I'd be interested to know how rich a company Roces is, and how much money they've been allowed to throw at their aggressive resurgence.

        I've said this recently; if Roces can redo the 5th elements to have a frame more like the Aeons (With a bigger split and going out at the heel) then they have a winner.
        Blading since 1994.

          If Roces re-release the 5th I imagine it'll be with a reworked UFS soulplate and will come with the Valo frame.

          I'd actually prefer it that way - that way people can use whatever frame they need (and we have the right options covered now) rather than it coming with a frame that isn't likely to perfectly suit anyone and be another wasted frame mold that we don't need or want.

          Boot-only is the Roces model and it's gonna be cheaper for them to do it that way and cheaper for the consumer. Basically, I'd want them to spend as little doing it as possible because I'm not even particularly sure skating needs the 5th element again.

          I also kind of hope it comes with the lower Valo-style cuff so we don't have that ugly high liner thing at the back.

            They've posted some shots of the black M12 in production, hopefully that'll come with the low cuff/liner too so it'll basically be the Sizemores.

              They already said it would be the higher liner which really sucks.

                Strange that they'd do that when the whites are lower, and they obviously already have the molds/liner patterns for low cuff.

                  I figure they are just restocking the standard Amazon/Sports shop market with standard skates (maybe even with the old roces frame) and that they'll do a more core-orientated Black/dark model either as a pro skate or similar to the white skate.

                      Leftover Impala/midnight parts, or a different blue?
