The Classic Brutale 2022
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 2022 we continue our path of always innovating, never settling!
Inspired by the Superleggera, all 2022 Adapt models now 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. This system allows you to mount any UFS frame and use the outer 4 bolts to mount the Symetrics soulplates for increased rigidity during grinds.
The Brutale comes with the Symetrics soulplates. The Symetrics soulplates are the only CNC machined soulplates on the current market that come stock on a skate! Machining rather than pouring the soulplates means different types of materials can be used. The Symetrics soulplates are arguably the fastest sliding and longest lasting soulplates on the market.
The soulplates have wheel wells for all 4 wheels and allow for up to 65mm wheels to be ridden flat in combination with the Symetrics flat frames.
The Symetrics Flat frames are the only CNC machined frames on the current market that come stock on a skate! The frames are made out of the same material as the soulplates and thefore slide like butter and are super long lasting. The Symetrics Flat frames have been upgraded for 2022, and now come with an oversized hexagon-shaped female stainlees steel axle. Now you only need one instead of two allen keys to open up the axles to remove your wheels. For easy placement, the hexagon axle does have an allen key opening. The original round RVS axles do still fit in the 2022 Symetrics flat frames! All components (frame, axles, spacers) are made in-house.
Your setup will be completed with the Symetrics Superfast wheels (60mm or 65mm) and the new Symetrics 7-ball ABEC9 bearings.

Stock & Production Time
Adapt skates are made to order. This means that after you placed your order, your pair of skates will be made especially for you.
During the pandemic we have struggled with availability of raw materials for our production. We expect that this will still have some impact on our production in 2022.
During high season (april-september) production time is about 6 weeks.
Adapt skates run true to size, in general this means you can probably downsize! Make sure you order the right size by measuring your feet and check out the sizechart here.
