A few weeks ago, we mentioned a new up-and-coming roller hockey company called Alkali Hockey. We knew at that time that they were getting close to unveiling some of their gear for their first line, and for Narch and State Wars, they set up a nice booth featuring all of their products. The first we wanted to take a look at was their top of the line Alkali CA9 roller hockey skate. While we don’t have all the tech specs on the skates for you, we can give you a few highlights from the CA9 skates.
Right away, you’ll notice the black and yellow color scheme, which we love. It looks great on the skate, and they handled design in a very traditional way with the mostly black boot, which also looks very appealing. The boot is said to fit like a combination between Graf and Bauer. The heel will be narrow while the forefoot will be a bit wider. They were built on a completely new last, will have a new toe box, and can be put in the oven for 10 minutes to achieve a true heat molded fit.
As far as components, we can tell from the pictures below that the Alkali CA9 roller hockey skates will feature a magnesium chassis and a straight 80mm wheel set up. The Labeda Addiction wheels will be standard on the CA9 skates, which will be great for high level players who want the best combination of grip and speed.
The Alkali CA9 roller hockey skates will drop this fall. Take a look at the skates below and let us know your thoughts. Will you get behind Alkali Hockey and grab a pair of their CA9 skates?
