THEM 909 Summer 21 Black-Black Full Skate is an aggressive inline skate and it is a full skate, not boot-only contrary to most models of the brand THEM.
The liner has a nice design and covers partly the cuff, which gives a good-looking view. The liner is comfortable.
The shell/boot material is made of Impact Resistant Plastic (TPU) material, harder/tougher for added support and longer lasting.
The name of the inline skate contains "black-black" because its 'sister' skate is the THEM 909 Summer 21 Black-Grey Full Skate
The UFS street skating frame has been designed by Kyle Sola and Jon Julio. It has a low H-block position, designed for use with either flat or anti-rocker wheel setups. It is made of durable, low-friction material, made from injection-mold glass-filled nylon.
It has precision-milled aluminum frame spacers and custom-made steel axles, with asymmetric head. You only needs one tool to tighten or loosen the axles.
You have a low riding height: 30mm from top of frame to middle of axles.
The frame fits up-to 58mm wheels for flat-rocker setups. The inline skate comes pre-installed with four wheels with flat radius.
The frame has 110mm distance between middle wheels, which means there is a quite large H-block.
As we are used from THEM, the size tabel is rather peculiar:
- Size X-Small = 5/6 US = EU 37-38
- Size Small = 7/8 US = EU 39-41
- Size Medium = 9/10 US = EU 42-43
- Size Large = 11/12 US = EU 44-46
- Comfortable liner
- Good overall quality
- The bearings are not of the highest quality: ABEC 5 in a closed case.
- Peculiar size table.
