The USD Carbon is a dream skate for many skaters, yet it is also a high class product made of the most expensive materials used on an aggressive skate.
With the desire to make this new skate available to a lower budget we took the time to talk to companies about making special plastic blends that could serve to re-create the Carbon effect at a more affordable price.
After two meetings with DuPont we were told that they had the perfect plastic for us:
DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET Thermoplastic polyester elastomer;
Hytrel® - A thermoplastic and elastomer in one.
Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomers provide the flexibility of rubber, the strength of plastic and the processibility of thermoplastics.
Hytrel® is also available in a full range of Shore D hardness (30D to 82D). Special grades are heat stabilized, flame retardant and blow molded. Concentrates include black pigments, UV protection additives, hydrolysis resistant additives, heat stabilizers and flame retardants.

NEW - Hytrel® RS renewable sourced thermoplastic elastomers can help reduce environmental footprint without compromising performance.
New grades containing 35% to 65% of renewable sourced material are in development and early tests show they grant the same performance and processing characteristics of original Hytrel®.

Ideal specs:

Hytrel® is ideal for parts requiring excellent flex fatigue and broad use temperature. It resists tearing, flex-cut growth, creep and abrasion. It offers strength and stiffness plus outstanding toughness while resisting hydrocarbons and many other fluids. Hytrel® can be processed easily by conventional thermoplastic processes, such as injection molding, blow molding, calendaring, rotational molding, extrusion and meltcasting.
We made our first tests with this material injection into a one piece plastic skate and tested it, advancing to test a variety of hardness until we found the perfect one.
We also redesigned the internal structure making a fully integrated cuff with built-in flex and support zones. The resulting product is made of a new patented construction that grantees satisfaction on all demands of an aggressive skate.

USD Imperial Black/White BOOT ONLY

This is the USD  Imperial BOOT ONLY for those of you who want to decide what frames, wheels and bearings you want to put on the boot to create the skate set up that is just right for your skating style.

USD Imperial Boot Breakdown:

For those of you who like the idea of the USD Carbon skates but do not have it in your budget to purchase them, USD decided to make their Imperial boot which has a similar design as the Carbon's but uses plastic instead of carbon fiber to lower the cost.

The Imperial boot features an integrated non removable liner to give you the best fit possible with a full lace up front, top buckle and tightening velcro strap to hold your foot in place.

USD worked with Dupont to develop the right plastic formula for the boot so that it has the right flex but at the same time does not lose it's shape.

The USD Imperial boot utilizes the exact same soul plate as their Carbon skates which is a nice slim design that cuts out weight

Overall the Imperial is a great boot that is lighter than a majority of the aggressive skates on the market and has a similar design to the USD Carbon boot but at a lower price.

  • Weight of single boot: 2 lbs. 8 oz. (Based on a size 9)

  • Non-removable liner

  • Re-worked tongue for improved fit

  • Anatomically formed insole

  • New soul plate design
