Coming in slightly above the middle of the range of Derby specialized quad skates in the Chaya range, are these Topaz skates. They offer a superb platform to help furhter your development of skills, without breaking the bank. And the cool thing is that if you decide that Roller Derby is for you, you can always upgrade the plate, wheels and other parts for a more personalised style and better parts.
The boot is shaped in the low-slung profile of a sneaker and clad in Polyurethane Nano Leather that is both soft to the touch and durable against wear from contact with for instance Derby rink flooring or other derby players. The Poron/EVA padding is super soft and comfortable and will have you skating all day long with little to zero discomfort. And to enhance the fit, Chaya has made the boot and liner fully heat-mouldable so you can get that second-skin fit going. It is low cut for optimum manoeuvrability.
For the Topaz, Chaya have gone with the choice of their Zena plates. Super durable, low-weight, and also compatible with the Chaya unique Dual Centre Mounting which lets you angle the boot to your specific riding style atop the plate. The Power toe system gives you more power, speed, and control and keeps a slight pre-tension in your muscles which lets you react quickly and change direction in an instance.
The trucks are made from aluminium and have an angle of 20º.
The Octo Edge wheels are wide and grippy and come with a 92A durometer.
The Chaya Cherry Bomb toe-stopper gives you added control and manoeuvrability. The semi-soft Jelly Interlock bushings create a fine balance between comfort and control. The Wicked ABEC7 bearings provide effortless roll speed.
