    Adapt Stealth Skates Review | The best skates ever?

    I still think the cuff (or lack of it) is stupid and I don't know why they don't address this issue. All they did is make them out of "more flexible carbon" every new model. I don't know if it's true. Had the Wagners. What I also dislike is the soulplate. It's a great material, the groove is ok and it slides like a dream. But I never liked that it was "round" on the outside and the negatives are too wide for my liking. Those aren't strong points and the souls are great in general. But the reason I still dislike them is that they don't look like they were made for the boot. I get the idea of making them symmetrical but when you hold them in your hands it looks like a flat sheet of plastic screwed to the boot. It doesn't match the "footprint" of the boot, it doesn't wrap around the boot. It's just a sheet between the boot and the frame. Maybe it's just me but I think the concept limits the potential.

            I always thought this was pretty obviously just because they want to avoid the costs of injection molding or injection molded parts. I figured many people kinda disliked the owner because he acts like his way is perfect and even though most everyone else wants them to have external cuffs, they just must be too dense to know better like he does.

            Want to pocket all the income that would otherwise go towards injection molding? Preach that the parts that would involve injection molding are pointless.

            I get that those cost savings may be what help the company exist... but the skates would still be better and sell WAY better with external cuffs.

                How asinine to get so butthurt because someone had some constructive criticism of a boot you ride. DESPITE THE FACT HE SAID IT WAS HIS FAVORITE BOOT EVER.

                    Is Jbah threatening someone for doing a vlog about Adapts? What a weird thing to do.

                        It's such a weird video. I've never seen anyone get so stressed about a pair of skates, and go on to say they're the best skates ever made. This guy has some serious anger issues.

                          Just say it , Jbah is a fucking turd who brings as much negativity to rollerblading as the comments section of roller news.

                          The fact adapt seem both , fine with one of their pros having a man child sized tantrum online and dumb enough as a custom skate maker to pay a washed pro to release a 'pro model' , speaks allot for them as a company.

                          Who the fuck buys some adapts and decides 'yeah I'll have them exactly like jbah!'

                          Fuck them both , hope that four foot assclown rolls his ass under a truck.

                            The funny thing is the guy says they're his favorite skates/the best he's ever rode by the end and his complaints about the shitty leather glue job are totally valid. It sucks that Jbah is so good at skating, but is such a giant tool bag.

                              I mean, Russell Day is pro for them. That should say enough. The male owner is also just as much of a douche bag online as Jbah.

                                To be fair, Bah's skating right now is incredible.

                                  To be fair, his all-white pro boot setup from them was pretty dope.

                                    Adapt seem to have this elitist persona which is really not helping them. Like they're doing you a favour by giving you superior skates in exchange for 500 euros, when in fact the skates really aren't all that.

                                            That's nice, my point was for a company that has allot of options, pro skates make no sense.

                                                    A major criticism from op's video was that the leather in the "power strap area", for lack of a better term, did not circle the boot entirely. The power strap seems to address this.
