The all new Adapt GTO Hyperskate Speciale (SP) 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 Speciale is the pinnacle of skate design.
Inspired by the prancing horse, the name GTO Speciale 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 Speciale is a skate with no other purpose than to raise the bar for every skate ever made.
The GTO Speciale shell consists of the Hyperskate Diolene shell with UD carbon reinforcements, finished with extra layers of black twill 3k carbon for improved responsiveness and a dark look. Like all Hyperskate models, the GTO SP features the Quattromount. The Quattromount is the most versatile mount in the industry as it fits both 165mm frames and 195mm frames as well as the ALL NEW Symetrics Quattro frame. The mount also provides an extremely low center of gravity, with the wheels as close to your feet as possible.
The skin is made out of black Hydro Nubuck leather, made specifically for Adapt by a Dutch tannery. The look of the skate is finished with details in smooth Italian leather with the black GTO badge embroidered on the heel and a full black handmade label.
The GTO skate also features the 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 Speciale is only offered with the Symetrics Quattro frame. The new frame is made out of 1 solid block of the highest grade 7075 alu. Using 3d modelling, we created the strongest frame on the market. By not cutting holes into the walls and leaving the bridges filled up, the strenght of the frame is from another planet. With the use of only 4 outer bolt (Quattro mount) every stride is a sensation on its own. The frame is a hi-lo set-up. Meaning that the front 2 wheels are 84mm and the 2 wheels in back are 90mm. Allowing the boot to sit lower in the front and giving more speed with the bigger wheels in the back, this frame is a unique experience.
The 2019 GTO Speciale comes delivered with SKF bearings.
The GTO package also includes new polished aluminum CNC machined strap/bolt protectors with laser engraving. Every GTO Speciale sold will have its unique number lasered in the boltprotector. SP1 being the first.
