This is the Final Edition version of the GTO skate. This model can be ordered until the 21st of January 2024. After this date, the GTO model will be discontinued and Adapt will continue with the Masterpiece collection only!
The Classic GTO 2023
The GTO model has been a pillar in the Adapt line up since its original release in 2016.
The model has evolved over time, but has stayed true to its original values; fast, responsive and beautiful, a true representative of the 'GTO' badge.
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 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 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.
The GTO can now be purchased with an optional (removable) 45 degrees powerstrap for increased heel lock (pictured). Especially for skaters with flat feet or a low arch the powerstrap can improve the fit significantly.
Showcasing our new logo in a classic way, the GTO comes with an embossed logo on the tongue and the infamous red embroidered GTO logo on the back of the skate.
The GTO 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 new optional removable 45 degrees powerstrap can take the fit of your GTO 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 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 Symetrics Quattro frames. The mount also provides an extremely low centre of gravity, with the wheels as close to your feet as possible.
