    Roces m12 vs valo v13

    Obviously the valo and roces have a almost identical look, but are they really that different performance wise? Just curious

    In Europe we have one size. My girlfriend is a EU36 and I'm EU41.

    That basically means I have a massive dick.

    I have thought this same thing about purchasing the Valos.

    I skated some white Roces M12's back in '07 and personally I didn't get on with them too well.

    So if you've had the same experience then I would say that there isn't much difference I imagine.

    The backslide plate looks identical so anything different would be the liner.

    If you haven't skated M12s before then try to get a go on some and see how you do.

      Exact same skate. Just like taking the skin off a normal valo. It's just a roces shell with valo stamped on it, and I bet they are just using unsold majestic 12s rebranded as v13.

          Yep that's what a ton of people have done. Just go on eBay and get a used pair of ufs m12 and just buy the sole plates.

            Buy some Valos when there is a sale....skate them with the skins on until the skins fall to pieces and then throw on some nimh souls.....get two lives out of them.

              No. Roces m12 shells use a much better quality thicker plastic. My Oli shorts were much stiffer than coffee v13. Not only that the plastic is also alot thicker so that it doesn't bow out under the stress and fatigue as much. I'm currently using pre- ufs roces shells and these things are just perfect.



              Roces also have better build liner that's tiny bit superior to VALO. Opinion thats been formulated of both use and observation. Im currently riding roces hemp liners that came with Oli Shorts.

              No. To cut the cost of production and to prevent people using shells without skins valo didint rivet the eyelids therefore after 5-6 sessions the plastic will rip and render you unable to use the shells. I've learned this the hard way.




              ************** edit rep valos all you like but i think roces use better quality materials. Also you can get them for 99 smackers brand new p&p included.

                      I had a couple pairs of deskinnned Valo (sans eyelets) that lasted me years without any plastic ripping. Maybe that's a weight issue thing?

                      Also, I'll agree with you that the old Roces liners (the Shorts or the kind with the grey "webbing" design) are maybe a little better than the current ones offered by Valo. However, the newer Roces liners (without the webbing) are significantly shittier than the liners that came in my forest greenz and many a TV.2 liner I've had throughout the years.

                        I had Roces with the webbing. The liners ruled.

                        I have new ones without the webbing and they are thinner and less good.

                        Still ok though.

                          I was rather light back then maybe I was doing them up too tight don't know but the lace ended up cutting through the plastic.
