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!
We proudly introduce the Signature Series Jon Fromm Brutale 2023 Final Edition model!
We couldn't let the Brutale model go without one final encore, so we're releasing this special colorway of the Jon Fromm Brutale in black and mint!
Jon has joined Adapt in 2020 and quickly became a big asset to the team. Not only is Jon an amazing skater that is very active with producing great content, he quickly became one of our main riders to try out new prototype skates and parts. Jon has been very motivated and amazing to work with over the last couple of years and we are proud to offer him his first, well deserved pro skate. Congratulations, Jon!
The Signature Series Jon Fromm Brutale 2023 is a true pro skate - we have collaborated with Jon's frame sponsor Fifty 50 and wheel sponsor Red Eye Wheels to create a skate that matches Jon's exact setup. Jon's Signature Brutale skate comes with his new Fifty 50 Pro Balance 2 frames and new Red Eye Pro 59mm wheels as an anti-rocker setup.
You can of course also opt for the Symetrics Flat frames if you prefer to ride flat. The Symetrics flat setup will also come with Red Eye wheels.
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 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 included removable 45 degrees powerstrap can take the fit of your Brutale to the next level.
The included 3d SLS boltprotector is mounted on the topstrap bolts to prevent the bolts and strap from getting damaged when falling over. The boot comes with a nubuck boltprotector as well.
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.
You can choose between two different setups:
- Anti rocker setup with Fifty 50 Balance 2 Jon Fromm pro frames and Red Eye 59mm wheels & anti-rockers.
- Flat setup with Symetrics flat frames and Red Eye 59mm wheels
- Dutch Nubuck v2 leather skin
- Replaceable liner piece
- High density memory foam
