The 18K Ice Skates feature a Max Armour V quarter package with grade-A nylon composite embedded zones. This quarter package provides optimum lightweight structure, stability and durability. The dual-zone liner with Duratex grip and Clarino enhances durability with increased heel lock, while the vented lightweight carbon-composite outsole increases torsional rigidity, maximizes energy transfer and delivers a reactive feel. Also, the 18K Skate has a pro-felt and EPE-foam hybrid tongue. Its molded shape along with its foam core provides a comfortable fit and minimizes tongue twist.
