The Graf G9035 is the highesst, pro-level skate that Graf offers. Graf was never famous for composite boots, on the contrary actually. Until the last couple years, Graf stayed out of the composite-style boot, but now they offer a skate that is truly top-of-the-line. In the G8035, Graf uses a strong, lightweight glass fiber quarter panel, allowing it remaining flexible under pressure. The "85 Flex" refers to the stiffness of the carbon fiber. The skate is also offered by Graf in "75 Flex". The Non-Absorbent 3D Comfort Liner is formed to fit anatomically, as well as reject moisture so your skates don't carry any unnecessary weight. The G8035 features a large white-felt, heatmoldable tongue that provides great comfort. If you are loyal to your old Graf fit, but want a stiffer, lightweight skate, we finally have the skate you've been looking for!
