2024 collection coming soon
welcome to an elite club
We proudly introduce the Masterpieces collection of 2023.
Starting out with a single Superleggera model in 2020, three years later we have expanded our collection with three completely new models, as well as an updated Superleggera SP model.
The Superleggera SP now has a fast brother, the Pista. This model has the same fit as the Superleggera SP, but is a low-cut boot, designed for speed skating. A new skeleton liner has been developed for this boot, which features a unique tongue system.
The Superveloce is a completely new platform, it is a UFS boot with slightly altered dimensions to better fit the goals this boot was designed for. The Superveloce is available as a full on aggressive boot, the Superveloce SC, which is dedicated to long term Adapt team rider Sem Croft, or as a Superveloce WZRD boot, designed to be used as a UFS freeskate/wizard skate.
"In the end, all that will be remembered are the masterpieces we left behind"
Nothing but the best will do
Ever since the release of the first Superleggera we have been working behind the scenes to not only develop a better and more high end skate, but also improve every aspect of creating these "Masterpieces". From a drawing to full CAD design, from wooden lasts to CNC machined molds. The Superleggera and Superveloce models are the best Adapt can offer.
Handmade is our motivation
Adapt is handmade. For us, it is the most important part of the brand. Being connected with the materials, knowing our product and not just shipping out boxes but actually live, care and breathe our ideas and designs. Adapt is us. Made for you.
Never off the shelf
For the Superleggera and Superveloce models, all parts are made bespoke and made in the Netherlands. From our CNC machined RVS Quattro mounting bolts up to the waterjet cut 7075 Alu mountplate inside the Pre-preg carbon shell. Perfection is what we strive for in every pair made.
Quattro mounting, hi-lo set-up, 7075 Swiss billet alu, those are some of the headlines of the Quattro frame. But most important, the one thing you cannot put on paper. How it feels, performs and rides.
The Quattro frame is in a league of its own. From the materials used, to the compact design while having the strongest mounting on the market. The frame allows for faster turning because of the 2 front wheels being smaller than the back wheels. This creates a rocker-like feel in steering, but with the benefits of a flat frame. Stability to the max
The lightest shell in the world
The Superleggera and Superveloce skeleton shells are a techical marvel. By using the first Superleggera as a template, we took the next step comfort- and designwise by working together with Jelle Briggeman to scan and redevelop the shell in CAD. We ended up with a super lightweight construction fully handmade by Pieter Wijnant. By using Italian pre-preg 3k and 6k carbon we have created a unique monocoque design with integrated eyelets and replaceable mountings. The Superveloce uses an Aircore to create the most solid base on any UFS boot ever.
Not just a normal liner. The liner built is shaped to fit in the skeleton shell. It fills up the entire shell with precision and uses heat active foams together with heat active fibers to create a full heatmoldable lining. With an improved heel lock, gel ankle area, brand new heatmoldable tongue design with lacebite-protection, the liner is on another level when it comes to comfort and durability. The updated nylon reinforced Strap/Holderstrap and top eyelets are a unique feature, as it works together in creating a sock-like feeling within the carbon shell.
With the Masterpieces project we strive to raise the bar of skate design. From the first line on paper to the first curve made in CAD. Pieter Wijnant and Jelle Briggeman have been working together in order to find perfection. Every line has a purpose, every use of materials has been tested.
Not only do we strive for a perfect result, the way we get to the result is as important. Creating our own molds, our own techniques in producing carbon like for example Aircore and much more.
