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!

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.

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 don't have a proper high sensitivity scale, so I used my body fat meter, which should be able to give a general idea...

My new Cado Motus 195 are approx 1300 grams.
(Said boot, Cado Motus 4*110 frame, 100mm gyro XG wheels, ILQ 9s & standard spacers)

My Fila F100s are approx 1200 grams.
(boot, Fila 4*100 frame, 1000mm hyper stripes, Silent Breez bearings - no spacers right now, as I have just disassembled the wheels...)

The scale is only accurate within 100 grams, so I'm guessing the Cados are a little less than 1300, and the Filas are a little more than 1200.

Did it say how much fat?


Don't have a good scale to, so same problem:
Mogema Toro II with Raps Evolve 2007 frame 3x100mm+90mm
Both left and right: a bit less than 1400 gramm each.

Picture maybe later (my father does have the camera with him on vacation).

1090g each skate.

Boot: Bont ZX-4
Frame: Bont Sniper 4X90
Wheels: Matter Juice natural
Bearings: BSB Swiss Lite/Bont Jesa Swiss micro with Ninja adapter sleeves

When I used to have the Bont Cragar with micro bearings, I think the it barely hit 1000g.

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.

I am challenging it! My Pinnacles are all carbon fiber shell and they are pretty darned light at 410 grams! I wouldn't expect any stock boot to be lighter!

I'm out of town so can't weigh McDaniels/Liberty setup. Worse yet, I better not weigh myself. I could lose 5 to 10 lbs. To me, the McDaniel boot is not light. It's clearly heavier than my old Powerslide C4. When I get back in town, next week, I'll try and find a usable scale.
