Is this a follow up to the SL series?, April 13, 2018 By Anonymous (San Rafael, CA)(Verified)
I've been skating since the beginning: RB Chocolates, Roces 5TH Elements, Saloman ST9s, lastly Razors Aragon 2 SL skates.
It has been 7 years since I bought my last skates, and a lot has changed in the interim. The biggest change is that people are more used to skating bigger wheels and are more used to standing further from the ground.
It's definitely a step up to 62mm wheels when I'm used to 55mm wheels. The speed increase is welcome, but it really takes getting used to. It feels like I'm learning to skate all over again.
The new liners on the Shift 2 are the best liners I have experienced. I drove down to Aggressive Mall to buy my last skates about 7 years ago. The Razors SL Aragon 2 skate was fantastic, but the liner was garbage. They helped me find a liner that worked. Thankfully the Reign liners are perfectly sized. I always find that a US 11 is the perfect fit for me, and the Reign liner is tight but comfortable. I really couldn't hope for a better fit. It might feel a little tight at the beginning, but that's because it needs room for fitting to your foot.
The frame swapping system is not as easy to use as advertised. I had to use tools to be able to push in the tabs to swap out the frames. it was still easier than locating the UFS bolts. Practice the frame swap before you rate it
