Default How much do your skates weigh?

I am not much of a weight savings person but I was discussing this issue with a friend and I still thought that the topic might be interesting.

I weighed each of the skates fully equiped and both were almost identical

right skate 1.145 grams
left skate 1.150 grams

1.150 grams = 2.535 pounds


my skates are:
custom Pinnacles (about size 10), Maple Diamonds 4x100/12.8 , MPC Streetfight, BSB Swiss.



just picture them with MPC's!

You wear a size FIFTEEN? OMG! You got some BIG feet!! Sounds dangerous..... I wear a size 5 or 6 lol.

Well, when I start skating, my aggressive skates weigh under 4 lbs each, maybe 3 now that I got some light wheels on them and have plastic plates! OK, must admit, I dont have a scale. But when I'm done, I think they weigh about 10 lbs each lol. Then I know its time to quit. They are soaked with sweat!

i don't really know, as i don't ahve a scale and never weighed them. But i do try to get each componenet as light as possible without sacrificing quality or stiffness.
Simmons boots - about 300 grams
Ion Avenger 4x110 - about 185 grams
Swiss Bones and spacers- (608 prefered even though 688s are lighter- they are too finicky)- wight about 13 grams each, spacers about 1.5grams
PC-Vanes TrueSpeed wheels about 135 gr. each.

I don't know what that totals, but based on what's out there in the market, i can't really get much lighter unless i wanted to try the Bont 3-point Vaypors or carbon fiber frames.

Indoor: 1170g stock Simmons Liberty 4x100/6.5 Matter blue/boss swiss 608
Outdoor: 1206g cust. Simmons, Boen 5x90 StarGrip/boss Swiss 608

I've given up on the mini's for anything other than racing and/or using the cragars. It's not the cleaning, it's finding spacers that work consistently. My 5x90 was down to 1124g when I had the TruRev and the minis, but I'm having better success with the Boen.

I doubt they could beat you current setup.

I'd actually like to see a comparison between the 2007 Bont Vaypor/Mag 3 point frame and the Simmons/Ion.

I remember that last year, the Simmons/Tru-Rev combination was lighter than the 2006 Vaypor/S-Frame combo.

I am talking about the boot alone. 450 are the heavy boots like old Verducci's.
Not sure what you're basing this on, but Simmons are in the low three hundreds.

1165g for my left skate.


Boot is Hyper Sincro custom size 11.5.
Wheels are Hyper Stripe
Bearings are BSB
The frame is you can guess the brand

1350g for my right skate.
Same wheels and bearings as the left. The extra weight comes from my brake/leash system.
