What kind of skating do you want to do?
Noob Info

More info

I would go for this right now for me:


The reasons are:
1. I want the suspension.
2. The grind space in nice.
3. I have been mostly riding flat and want to try it.
4. The only thing I don't like is it may not be the best park setup.

You can always change the frame. So it is not a big deal to get the right frame up front. I think the Cults will be just fine too. Just like anything you can always adjust as you go. We all do.

Demo, they suck (according to sources) for park and ramps (the suspension frames).

Something about the flex absorbing the pump speed. I've never personally tried it, but a buddy of mine has. And he'd know. He's on his 43rd pair of skates. LOL

no shiz they suck for ramps. the pads just absorb all your momentum and pump and you just stop pretty much. well i did when i tried some kids out, but then again i'm smaller and lighter than demo so they might be ok for him, seeing as he'll have more momentum than me. but yeah they're fun frames. i love doing comping tricks in them, they slide as well as my pianowskis.

Check, maybe too absorbent. I will stick with shock inserts.

On wheel hardness I go with 90 and 92 because I hit a lot of asphalt. Just be careful because 90+ tends to be slick on wood.
