The all new CRAZY CELEBRITY ART Skates sets the new standards for the Classic Hi-White and Hi Black Skate. Featuring:
The CRAZY Skates APOLLO is a very High Performance Pre-Professional Skate and is the culmination of several years of intensive research and development to bring the very best COMFORT and PERFORMANCE to Skating and especially Artistic Figure Skating. Crazy Skates of Australia, has assembled a team of some of the best Skaters, Derby Skaters, Boot Makers, Design Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, and Chemical Engineers in the world to provide Skaters everywhere with a whole new level of Comfort and Performance. The CRAZY Skates APOLLO Skate (Frame) is used in the CELEBRITY ART, VXi, DBX J, and DBX 1 complete Outfits and can be used with many other Skate Outfits as a very High Performance Pre-Professional Skate.
The Supreme Comfort Leatherette CRAZY Skates Celebrity Art Boot has enhanced Comfort designed into the Skate with the special patented Tongue Cut design, creating the Expandable ToeCap, which creates a Toe Box that Expands for a Wide Foot and pulls in for the Narrow Foot. This is an exclusive CRAZY Skates Comfort Design.
CRAZY Skates even has a special way of Lacing the Skates so as to be able to individually adjust the tightness of each crossing of the laces. The Lacing System utilizes the Laces being installed Over the Top or from the Outside to the Inside and then when the laces are drawn, you will Cross Pull from the Center Out, and the Laces will lock in place when the proper laces are utilized. To prevent the Toe Box from getting too tight over time, remember to loosen the Laces all the way down EVERY Time the Skates are taken off.
The CRAZY Skates APOLLO Skate (Frame) is an exceptional design which utilizes the very best technologies that are available to create Magic in its performance. The CRAZY Skates APOLLO Plate is designed and formed of an ULTRA Lightweight rigid FiberGlass based Resin Composite which provides a GREAT looking Plate which is unsurpassed in Strength to Weight ratio. This ultra STRONG Pre-Professional Skate Frame has a Machined Aluminum Toe Stop insert formed directly and securely into the Skate Frame and utilizes an Allen Screw Adjustable Toe Stop (Not the typical Jam Nut found on most Skates in this price range) and professional Delrin Pivot Pin Inserts. The CRAZY Skates APOLLO Skate (Frame) uses the very same Truck Assembly as the Professional Venus Skate Frame with the very articulate 20 degree action that both rocks and turns like many of the best Artistic Skates in the World and with Trucks that use a single Adjustment Nut to articulate the Non-Click Action Adjustment. The CRAZY Skates APOLLO Skate King Pin is an actual King Pin of Stainless Steel made specifically to be a King pin (not just a standard bolt) that utilizes a special Locking Nut to secure it to the Plate and increase the Strength to stand up to the most rigorous usage. The standardized complete Truck Assembly assures consistent high levels of performance across the CRAZY Skates Frames, including the Venus and the Apollo. The Aluminum Truck is imbedded with a highly precision 8mm Axle and a hardened steel Pivot Pin. The Core of the Truck assembly, where the Cushions (Suspensions) are seated is larger, allowing for the Larger Upper Cushion to go through the Core of the Truck and touch the Smaller Lower Conical Shaped Lower Cushion. This design Totally Encapsulates the King Pin creating the magic feel of a very Stable, Smooth, Fast, and Articulate Action, providing GREAT Edging and Total Control of the CRAZY Skates APOLLO Skate. The CRAZY Skates APOLLO Skate (Frame) comes complete with one (1) set of Highly Reactive, Fast Snap-Back, Black or Gray Rubber Cushions (depending on Skate Size). One set will be installed on the Skates. The Upgraded High Rebound Urethane Cushions can be purchased as an accessory for the APOLLO Skate as whole sets that can be mixed and matched as desired. These are the Urethane Cushions that come standard on the Venus Skates and are completely interchangeable between the APOLLO and the Venus Skates.
The Soft or Flexible Cushions are Green.
The Mid or Medium Cushions are Clear.
The Firm or Hard Cushions are Purple.
There is a fourth hardness that is available only as an optional Accessory.
The Xtra-Firm or Xtra Hard Cushions are Blue.
These Cushions can be swapped very easily and also mixed and matched to create many combinations. See the Video in the Learning Center.
Remember that the Larger Upper Cushion is the one that that goes through the Core of the Truck and provides the Stability of an Edge and should most always be the Stiffer Cushion if they are mixed and matched. The Smaller Lower Conical Shaped Cushion provides the quick and sharp movements and should most always be the Softer Cushion if they are mixed and matched.
The CRAZY Skates Lil' BLOC Toe Stops are very durable Rubber Toe Stops with a flat bottom to help with Stability and Control for Recreational and Pre-Professional Artistic Figure Skating. The Toe Stops are American (SAE) Thread. The CRAZY Lil' Bloc Toe Stops are adjusted in the Venus Plate by an Allen Screw that uses a Standard 3/16ths inch Allen Wrench or Allen T-Wrench.
The CRAZY Skates 58mm X 32mm Signature CELEBRITY ART Wheels are the equiped Art Wheels on the CELEBRITY ART Skates. The CRAZY Skates 58mm X 32mm Signature CELEBRITY ART Wheels are a pretty grippy wheel with a moderate size Delrin Hub, which promotes longer “Roll”.
The CRAZY Skates ABEC 3 Bearings are 8mm full Precision Bearings. They are designed specifically for Art and Recreational Skating on most Skating surfaces.
CRAZY Skates Mount and Power Wedges – The CRAZY Skates factory mount is extremely accurate and consistent. The Mount is a 6 Bolt Mounting system, utilizing Lock Nuts and with internal Mounting Bridges at the Ball of the Feet utilizing six (6) mounting points on each Skate for a VERY Secure Mount. The Mount Positioning is very Centered, just barely to the outside of the long axis and the CRAZY Plate Sizing is based on Standard Length Plates, placing the Front Axle under the Ball of the Foot and the Rear Axle under the Center of the Heel. This type of Mount provides the absolute best and most flexible Control of the Skates. This is the optimum position for Art Skating. Other Custom Mounts are not available on the CELEBRITY ART. The CRAZY Skates Power Wedges are a very distinct advantage to the Skaters using them. The Power Wedge is a wedge of lightweight Nylon Plastic goes between the Toe of the Boot and the Flat top of the Plate (Skate Frame). All shoes, boots, and Skating Boots have a natural curvature of allowing the Toes to come up and if the Skating Boots are pushed down to match the Flat top of the Plate the Boot can become deformed and mis-shaped placing stress on the Boot and potentially the Foot inside. By installing CRAZY Skates Power Wedges, that fill this space and provide a solid surface for the Boot to rest on and press against (not allowing the toe of the Boot to Flex) during the pushing process actually greatly increases the Power of the Push, thus the name “Power Wedge”
What comes with the CRAZY Skates CELEBRITY ART Outfit: The CELEBRITY ART complete Skate Outfit, includes the Supreme Comfort Leatherette CRAZY Skates Celebrity Art Boot, pair of Power Wedges, the APOLLO Skate Frames with an appropriate set of Rubber Cushions, Set of 8 Signature CELEBRITY ART 58mm X 32mm Wheels with 8 Spacers and 16 ABEC 3 Bearings installed on the Skates, 8 Axle Nuts on the Axles, a pair of Lil' Bloc Toe Stops, and a tool including a 3/16ths Allen Wrench.
