The GTO has been a strongpoint in the Adapt line up since its release. Even though the GTO has gotten some changes this year, we felt the need to continue its legacy and keep the name.
The major upgrade in the 2020 GTO is the skin material. We are still using our trusty nubuck leather, but managed to improve on it. We did this by making the nubuck leather a bit thinner. The thinner material means the skin is just a little bit more flexible, which results in a better fit. While the older GTO model needed some break in time, the GTO 2020 forms to your feet straight out of the box.
In short, the nubuck v2 leather provides the same strength and durability but with a better fit. The straps are now also single layered to increase fit and comfort. To emphasize the new leather, we went for a new skin design and back logo to match the new look.
The Adapt GTO Hyperskate is the brainchild of skate designer Pieter Wijnant. Being obsessed by hand build hypercars for most of his life, Pieter used his passion and knowledge to create the ultimate hyperskate. By using the same technology and mindset the hypercar industry uses, the Adapt GTO is the pinnacle of skate design.
Inspired by the prancing horse, the name GTO was given to the ultimate skate.
The GTO race series had no limitations and was banned from motorsports for being too dangerous. All GTO cars that were built were left with no other purpose than to raise the bar for every car ever made. The Adapt GTO is a skate with no other purpose than to raise the bar for every skate ever made.
The GTO shell is a Hyperskate Diolene shell, finished with extra layers of black twill 3k carbon for improved responsiveness and a dark look. Like all Hyperskate models, the GTO features the Quattromount. The Quattromount is the most versatile mount in the industry as it fits both 165mm and 195mm frames as well as the new Symetrics Quattro frame. The mount also provides an extremely low centre of gravity, with the wheels as close to your feet as possible.
The GTO has On-steam lining material. This high performance lining material is 10x as durable as real leather and 3x as thin, resulting in a very close feel to the foot and increased responsiveness. Tested by Pieter himself for over 2 years with no signs of visible wear and tear.
The GTO package includes aluminium CNC machined strap/bolt protectors.

We have changed the UK and US sizing of our skates in 2017! The EU sizing has stayed the same. If you've had a pair of Adapt skates in the past, get the same EU size. More info in the FAQ section.
