    None of the benefits of the Aeon soul wrapping round to protect the boot or the low ride height due to the wheel-wells.

    Why not just stick Megas/Bigs on the salomons and be done with it?

      BIGS are way too tall. MEGAs are still harder to skate flat. Aeon frame is just the easiest way to skate 4 wheels. But its done mostly to replace the poor Salo stock souls and lack of BS plate which is the biggest factor.

        Nice. What's the assembled axle to foot distance like vs. Aeon 72? Power cutting tools FTW

            Is the Aeon the best grinder frame for 72mm flat? The options are pretty limited. I guess maybe the new Kizers might be slightly better than Big/Bake/Level 3

              Aeon frames will still be better (easier) for flat for someone who never skated like this. Kizer 3.1 frames have been available for more than a year now. They are ok if you like bigger wheels and high frames. the groove is small/shallow so it works (especially good with 67 or 68mm wheels).
              We got really sweet deal on them as R2Roll set - https://www.hedonskate.com/p/szyny-2...ady2roll-23886

                Oh damn...well I never saw them come out or be promoted. They don't look too bad but again the split seems so narrow. Still fair play kizer.

                  Small/shallow groove is MUST for skating 4 wheels down. its so simple yet seems no one besides Symmetric figured it out for last 10+ years. I agree on zero promotion of the frames.. hopefully Element II which will drop in a few months will be advertised better or at least they will inform people about it.

                      I don't know about that. The first flat-specific frame since Fiziks was the Kaltik frame and that's had design impact on pretty much all the flat-orientated frames since - Bigs, Mega, Bake, Kizer, K2 frames, Oysi etc...The Symmetrics frame looks a great option for flat and reflects those great old frames, but it's not the only way and many people prefer the wheelcup style to the minimal-groove style.

                        hem, ... Elements and Slimline were specifically intended for flat few years before Kaltik frames.

                              You're right, I totally forgot about both of those frames. To be fair, Slimlines have to be about 55-57mm flat and the groove kinda sucks which makes them no better than any other frame for flat really (and worse than a lot of frames people skated anti rocker). Elements are a good shout - I feel like they were accidentally good for flat rather than on purpose though!

                                Elements had the wider wheel split of the market on purpose.



                                Powerslide planned to sell them on Kelso Pro Skates because they skated flat, it seemed none of them liked the frames...

                                  the problem was that the first Element frames which were released with Kelso pro model had huge problems with hardware - the bolts were taken for rec skates and could broke during the first sesh so they killed the idea at the start. Improved hardware was added to harmanus and howard pro models later on but it didnt catch on. Really sad as Elements itself were awesome frames for flat for ANYBODy just like Aeons are now.

                                    have you ever tried to skate 1st gen kaltik on flat setting ? ITS HARD. The groove is SUPER deep. Even on rails they were scary as shit, not even considered to skate ledges in them. The wheel cups dont help with anything really . I am so glad that the deep grooves slowly are fading away - it`s like buying used frame.

                                    The same with Slimlines - groove makes them super hard to grind with 4 wheels.
