The Rollerblade Twister Plus is still by far my favourite skate, especially when it comes to customization. Here is a simple variation I’ve made, where the accent is on both aesthetics and details.
The base is one of my Rollerblade Twister Plus (2004) in size 28.0 MP (43 EU, 10 US). At this size, the front frame mount hole is still the one furthest back, so adapting frames is easy. For the first time, I took some decent pictures of all the phases I thought might be useful during the changes, where one can see all of the little hidden details.
The parts used are :
- Rollerblade Twister Plus (2004) shells
- Rollerblade TRS cuffs
- TRS buckles (screw mounted)
- Seba FR1 Drylex liners
- Rollerblade Twister Plus shock absorber
- Xsjado heel buckles
- Seba FR sliders
- USD cuff outer bolts with Salomon inner bolts
- Salomon UFS frame bolts
- Seba Igor frames (243mm)
- Gyro F2R 80mm 85A wheels
- SKF ABEC5 bearings
- SAT Barcelona stickers
…only the main shell and shock absorber are from the original skate, not a single other part, not even a bolt!
