After much anticipation the Xsjado 2.0's are now available. This is Xsjado skates all new mold for the Xsjado's featuring some much needed improvements. Namely the new 1 piece soulplate that will now come in 4 sizes instead of 2, ensuring a proper fit. They've also used a better more high quality foam this time around, memory foam to mold to your foot and provide maximum comfort. This skate is avaible as a skeleton, so you would still need footwraps, frames, wheels, and bearings. Xsjado has been testing the 2.0's for years now and they are finally perfect and ready for the wide world of aggressive rollerblading, and these skates have Chris Farmer's seal of approval. Now if you are unfamiliar with how a Xsjado inline skate works, let me explain: This skate is kind of like a snowboard binding, you put your foot into the shoe (footwrap) and then step into the skate. This skate has 2 velcro straps and a metal ratchet to help keep your foot locked into place inside of the Xsjado's. These blades will be great for vert, street, park, or just cruising around. Xsjado 2.0 are a big innovation in aggressive skating and they are bringing some of the most technical blades to the table.
Xsjado 2.0 vs Farewell, September 17, 2017 By Byron (Groton, CT)(Verified)
It's sad we are losing this but xsjado improved on an already revolutionary design.
This review is NOT all encompassing, but will provide an opinion on hardware improvements in xsjados masterpiece:
Equal: Higher & Lower Cuff pieces, velcro straps, and soul plates are of the same quality.
Pros: Cuff bolts, Ankle pad, and Cuff pads, and buckle receiver are a MASSIVE improvement. The ankle pads lower that is behind the ankle buckle is a high quality pleather material fits comfy on the footwrap while the other padding is similiar to a thicker fat boy liner. The buckle receiver is more protected, better designed and does not damage the buckle when ratcheted down. No more cheap powder coat paint that flakes at the first sign of abuse. The cuff bolt is wide and bulbous and the star shaped hex has been abondoned.
Cons (Maybe a pro to your preference): Buckle straps are llloooonnnggg. They extend way past the body in the boot and flop about in the wind. A pro to this is that it makes it much easier to thread your ankle pad to ratchet in, but I like the tight to boot look that the normal 2.0s provide.
