This is the Final Edition version of the Brutale skate. This model can be ordered until the 21st of January 2024. After this date, the Brutale model will be discontinued and Adapt will continue with the Masterpiece collection only!
As dedicated bootmakers, we are always aiming to create a great looking finished product. With the new trend of mounting a UFS Big Wheel frame directly to the boot without the soulplate, we aimed at visually and practically improving that look. For that reason we have developed the WZRD plate. It is a very thin (3mm) plate that can be sandwiched in between the boot and UFS frames. It not only greatly improves the overall look and finish of the setup, it also functions as a protection of the boot by filling up the UFS holes in the frame and protects the underside of the powerstrap.
The Brutale model is an evolution from our very first model we released all the way back in 2012! From the ONE model through the Stealth to the Brutale has been quite the journey of development and design. With the Brutale 2023 we continue our path of always innovating, never settling!
For 2023 we focused on refining our 2022 model. We have meticulously redesigned our toebox, ensuring it gives more space in height and width, without making the skate look bulky in the toe area. Furthermore we have upgraded our foam type and thickness in the lining piece to give a more comfortable fit. The lacebite prevention strip on the tongue now has a laceloop to ensure the tongue stays nicely in its place while skating.
Since 2022, all Adapt models come with a replaceable heel/ankle lining piece. The lining piece ensures a better fit for the ankle, prevents pressure points from the cuff area and can be replaced when worn down, expanding the lifetime of the skates even further! The lining piece is fully heatmoldable at lower temperatures and even forms when simply skating it. It can also be removed before heatmolding the shell, to prevent foam compression during more rigorous heatmolding. Although we made changes to the lining system of the skate, we worked very hard to ensure that an Adapt will always feel direct, responsive and comfortable. With the new system, it has gotten more easy to get the perfect fit every Adapt customer deserves.
The tongue has been redesigned with a pressure-dividing patch to prevent lacebite.
Showcasing our new logo in a classic way, the Brutale comes with an embossed logo on the tongue and a white embroidered Brutale logo on the back of the skate.
The Brutale is made with our trusty nubuck 1.3mm leather. The supple but strong nubuck forms to your feet straight out of the box and will only fit better over time. The new lining system is made out of airmesh lining for comfort and an overall great fit. The nubuck, airmesh lining and waxed laces work together greatly to get your skates fitting like a glove. The optional removable 45 degrees powerstrap (pictured) can take the fit of your Brutale to the next level.
The optional 3d SLS boltprotector (pictured) is mounted on the topstrap bolts to prevent the bolts and strap from getting damaged when falling over. The boot comes standard with a nubuck boltprotector.
The Brutale shell has a built in cuff and is made out of diolene, to provide responsiveness, support and natural flex. Embedded in the bottom of the shell is a torsion bar, which prevents torsion and increases overall rigidity. The Brutale features our UFS Sixmount system.
