Default Test : Kim Sung Jin Slalom Skates

Sometimes you really feel lucky to work in RoL, for example when you call a brand (Seba) to ask them to test their products (in this case the KSJ) and when they answer on the phone "No problem, I'm sending one to you". After the iGoR skates, RoL had the opportunity to try on the second top-skate of Universkate in the colours of Kim Sung Jin, the Korean champion...

Default Seems higher then needed

Seems like the igor and this new model have a higher deck height then the lower end models. I think you would get better responce from the lowest possible height, but it seems the more expencve skates have a big big space between the boot sole and the frame/wheels . What gives?

It's an illusion, in fact it's pretty much the same. Because there is no liner, and the carbon needs room for the frame screw holes beneith the boot.
